Default Re: Buildjournal B-Spec Tune Review

Just flashed my car, this is my first tune on my M3 and I couldn't be happier. Turnaround time was less than 1 day. Thoughts:

-Great website with detailed info and step-by-step instructions. I contacted them on IG and they were able to answer my questions in detail. The B-Spec tune is perfect for a beginner, the process was extremely smooth.

-I felt some gains after installing the euro headers, but this tune definitely brought that mod to full potential. From mid-range to redline it just pulls hard and feels like it wants to keep going.

-I was pleasantly surprised to see the 6MT shift lights work on my '01. I thought it would only work on 03+ clusters. Still need to try to the new sport mode.

-Backfire sounds dope, and is controllable.. shouldn't happen randomly. You have to let off the throttle after punching it, like around 4k. Rest of the exhaust sounds normal. This is good for me as I'm not trying to catch extra heat from cops.

My engine light is finally gone! No more error codes for deleting my SAP and secondary o2 sensors. If I pass e-test (just obd plug-in) I'm laughing. Just need to make sure the monitors show as ready or not applicable.

Overall... B-Spec Tune is bless. Major props to the guys for bringing this great affordable tuning option to the market.
