Hey guys, wondering if I can get some advice. I'm still not getting a sure answer yes or no if I can run the stage 2 map on my car. I've asked BM3 customer service prior and they told me I must run an aftermarket dp be it may catless or high flow even though I did mentioned I'm running AA mid-pipe which I thought may help a little regarding having less restrictive exhaust with fewer cats. The reason I ask this is I see some guys running stage 2 map 93 maps on their m3/m4's and the platform should be near the same, yes? So I'm confused, can I run stage 2 with my M2 comp with AA mids or do I need a dp? Though I do want more power I really don't want to be full catless since I don't have any secondary cats anymore.

This is a post from the m3/m4 forums.

Of course you can run stage 2 without DPs, just you won't get the full benefit of the map but it will still be markedly better than a stage 1.

Ok for those who have a 2020 M2 competition I just got an email from a local tuner who handles Cary e85 tunes and was told the 2020 m2's are now unlockable. Can you confirm?

They've always been unlockable, you do need to remove the ECU. Whether it is unlockable through the OBDII port by users is another question.

If you physically remove the ECU from the car and send it to them, Yes.

If you want to go through the cars on board diagnostics port, No.

Clearly they are in no hurry to find a way to unlock our DME because it concerns a small number of "old" cars and they are totally focused on the new platforms.

Well it has been 6 month now, I kind of losing my hope that it will be done. Still didn't claim for the refund...

Well I claimed the refund. Which PTF cheerfully returned my $. Then after waiting what seemed forever for them to unlock, I repurchased.

Watched a few diy videos on removing the S55 ECU, removed and sent to Ontario. I’m a happy motorist once again. It’s absolutely worth the trouble. Just do it.

Any M2C that goes into service with a failure will likely get a flash and then thrown into the same boat as the rest of us. So it's not just the new ones. Also there is another 2 years of M2Cs worth of customers. Not to mention the m3/m4 market that is supposedly afflicted by this now as well.

I spoke to them yesterday, and they again reassured my that it is being actively worked on.

For all the people tired of waiting. Don't just come here and post about it. Go to their social media and post about it. Hit them up on Facebook and Instagram. Send them e-mails asking about it. The more visible the demand, perhaps the more attention goes into the project. It can't hurt... But being sad on the forums isn't going to get any of us anywhere. :/

They need to crack a brand new vulnerability if at all doable that way. How long did it take for OBD flashing the first time around? F series N55 came out 2012? S55 in 2015? OBD stuff I think like last year or something.
