Yes, even for those not mechnically inclined it's very simple.

I did it myself in just under twenty minutes. All you need is a battery charger.

Its a computer software upgrade... much like a chip.. but due to the OBD-II limitations.. ( I think, not exactly sure why not a chip ) but it flashes your computer system with new software... just like a chip it replaces stored info like rev limiters... top speed governers... ect.. fuel mapping... and a few more things.... Turner Motorsports sells them.. made by Jim Conforti... its a great upgrade....

I don't think you understood my question. My question was if the dealership could shark my car (acually do the reprogramming there at the dealership) Not if the dealership can reprogram my car with something i bought from conforti, dinan, ect

im not sure why or what type of software the dealership would put into that car... that type of mod would definately void the powertrain warranty

i dont know why the dealership would even carry that type of software

If you found a dealer that would do something like that they would probably charge you thousands of dollars maybe by upgrading the ECU or something ridiculous...

but I have a feeling they would tell you it would void the warranty....

Sure... the dealership updates the programming on ODBII cars all the time.

To not answer your question, but add a nice twist.... BMW of Greenwich, Conn. is also an authorized Dinan shop!. Very rich neighborhood, lots of peeps there buy M3's then roll it across the lot straight into the dinan garage to be worked out.

Someday................ Someday............
