However I highly doubt they did anything to the Steering / Diff / traction behavior, short of coding it to M3 CS/GTS values.

Secondly whilst they claim warranty, if something does go wrong sounds like you will be be held up whilst the different parties try to determine responsibility. At least with DINAN or Carbahn (Steve Dinan) you are dealing with guys who have longstanding dealer/corporate level relationships.
Whatever they did, itís quite remarkable. I ended up going with them for 3 reasons.

Alpina connection. Warranty. No bench flashing/ backdating of dme.

Iím in sales, so I know bullshit when I hear it. These guys here are no bs artists, and now having the tune for almost a couple weeks, I wouldnít be able to live with the stock car again. Itís just so much better.

I think whatever Noelle is doing is the future of tuning for bimmers. Comprehensive gains, and enough confidence to offer a warranty. Time will certainly tell!
