ProTuningFreaks BOOTMOD3 Flash (BM3)
Protuningfreaks Boot Mod3 software is the world’s first, most advanced and widely adopted BMW flash tuning platform for F & G series vehicles. Offering a completely unique and user-friendly way to modify your BMW, BM3 provides a simple to use cloud-based application available on both laptop/desktop devices, and also mobile devices for those all-important ‘on the fly’ tweaks and changes.
Having such a unique ability with their mobile app also enables a host of other useful tools into the app, such as diagnostic code reading, live dash data display and cloud based storage for your all-important remap data and data logs.
After initially calibrating your vehicle in-house, BM3 offers you the ability to simply change the flashed software on your vehicle yourself, without the need to re-visit us. You also have the option to purchase additional calibrations directly from within the BM3 app to flash your vehicle with. It’s never easier to swap from Stage 1 calibrations, to a Stage 2, or the ever popular “Overrun” & “Burble” tunes.
Please speak with a member of the team to discuss exact BM3 tuning options.
Controversial to a lot of well-known tuners in this day & age, we opt for the road tuning method with all of the vehicles we tune here at AP Automotive. Road tuning sees us log data from your vehicle in real world conditions on the road to obtain its exact parameters, this is then uploaded to the selected software and the tweaks are made to your ECU’s programming. We then hop back in the car for some more logging and ensure the changes have provided the desired outcome.
This old-school method of logging data ensures that we’re not chasing those infamous “dyno figures” or big BHP numbers on a graph. We listen to your requirements; we obtain the data from the exact vehicle we’re working with and we bespoke tune your vehicle to suite your needs and exceed expectations– it’s as simple as that!
Please note: We do have the functionality to provide a dyno-graph print out with every remap undertaken here at AP Automotive using our hub-dyno performance measuring device. This will come at an additional cost of £75 if requested.
As well as an ECU Remap, we also have the expertise to provide gearbox tuning for modern S-Tronic and DSG gearboxes, as well a large selection of BMW gearboxes, both DCT & full auto. Please enquire upon booking your remap if you require this service.
