At what point does your factory stock map get uploaded from the dme in to the "my map" secition? Is this occurring during activation?

Yep, once you activate, a stock map for your software version will appear under “My Maps”.

Great write up indeed. They need this on their website. I feel a lot better about putting down $600 when I fully understand what the install entails.

1. How many developed OTS maps do they currently have? I see 2 or 4 if you split between 91/93 (found a post from Dec noting there are S1 & S2 M2 specific maps)
2. For $600 can you start at something like stage 2 and not stage 1?\3. Anybody got a link to the BM3 M2 dyno results for the different stages?

Which steps need WiFi? At what point can you pre-download your map(s) and do everything offline in the car?

Any more need for Online Recode after flashing?

Assume you are in the beta test now, right?

I purchased the activation but haven't tuned as I believe they are still testing and haven't officially rolled out for the masses.

They released it like 2 weeks ago for the M2. I was testing it with them works like a friggin’ charm.

For anyone curious what the burbles sound like on proTUNING Freaks's Bootmod3 here you go!

This is the Stage 2 OTS map. My exhaust setup is a Fabspeed Catless DP mated to the MPE. The video progresses from MDM to Sport to Sport+!

Edit: Just realized I forgot to open the valves for this video. Exhaust valves are most definitely closed here.

For the M2, that currently show on the OTS Maps screen 5 total, Stage 1 91/93, Stage 2 91/93, Stage 2 E30 blend. But I think they have more such as big turbo upgrade OTS, because it's listed on their support site when we used to request maps from there, now it's all done through the Agent (whether on your laptop or phone).

Yes, you get to choose whatever map you want to start at for FREE. They give you credits, so I chose Stage 2 91 octane as shown in my instructions, I checked and it shows I still have 1 credit. So I THINK that means you get 2 maps and not just 1 for free? Not sure, verify with PTF.

There are multiple posts (including from me) and on PTF's site for dyno results, poke around!

I think once you activate, get the OTS map, click Flash then there's an option download and flash later, hit that. You can now flash without the internet. The map will be downloaded to your computer (once the iphone/android apps are updated, it'll download to that too). You can do this for all of your maps, download and flash later! In my instructions, the map was flashed WITHOUT internet, I think by default it's done offline now.

I didn't need to use online recode, I think they fixed the fuel error. Mine flashed flawlessly without any errors and I did not recode it.

No beta, it's officially out! I was surprised, because there wasn't an M2 specific announcement. You can do this right now with 0 issues! They're always making improvements/testing to make the platform better and better each day.

I say go for it, and tune your M!

Thanks for the video, if you get a chance could you please post the NEW cold start delete? It's incredible, absolutely no crazy loud cold start being catless + akrapovic catback this helps a lot. The ONLY tune out there that has TRUE cold start delete, crazy! I love it.

What map did you choose? Assume you have access to Petro C Ultra 94. Any issues you have noticed? Are you getting much out of it, given no turbo/IC/HPFP upgrades?? I'm hearing this version of the N55 is pretty tapped out given the stock hardware.

Curious I have have basically same set up (MPE+FS DP).

Cops in Winnipeg can be hit or miss, some are much more forgiving than others. I'll be honest and say I'll be surprised if I go all summer and don't get an exhaust ticket here lol.

As far as which map I chose, I chose the Stage 2 93 Octane map. I have access to Husky 94 Octane here in Winnipeg, and have the CSF Intercooler sitting in the living room waiting to be installed.

The guys at PTF have noted that West Coast 94 isn't exactly the best fuel. They've even gone so far as to say to pick the 91 OTS map if you're located in Western Canada. I'm running meth injection which should (hopefully) make up for the supposed poor quality fuel - I'll datalog it in the Spring and find out. Unfortunately I haven't been able to drive it much, I've stored the car over winter and I've only driven it three or four times with the Bootmod3 tune.

Prior to winter I had the car dyno'd with JUST my JB4 and Catless DP. My baseline was 344/378 bone stock, and with the JB4 + Downpipe the car made 374/455. The car is pretty tapped out on the OEM turbo, the JB4 made great power despite this but unfortunately didn't feel as smooth in its delivery. Once Spring shows its face around here I'll be able to fine tune the Bootmod3 tune a bit more for the meth injection and get back on the dyno. I will say though, the couple times I've driven it with JUST the flash, the car felt so much smoother in its power delivery. The top end also felt much stronger just from a butt-dyno perspective.

Sure, I can do that later this evening and post it up later tonight! The new TRUE cold-start delete definitely makes the startup much more bearable with the catless setup.

This write-up you've put together will definitely help a lot of people out - good job!

Here are the M2 OTS Maps as of 03/10/18, they also have maps for upgraded turbo, port injection, meth injection, backend flash w/ JB4, anything you want PLUS custom tuning from PTF or any tuner:

If you want to just Flash and Go, PTF has you covered, no data logging required! Although, you always have the ability to data log if you want to and have that reviewed by PTF and they can make adjustments!

So there is no specific step to unlock the OBD before flashing a tune?

I saw a youtube video showing this must be done prior to any flash tune?

I'd love to have a Stage 1 91 octane dyno graph... Since I only have Shell 91 octane here in Canada

BM3 looks super appealing now with OBD flash tunes!!!
