From what I understand there is a big difference between what your local garage can detect and what BMW HQ can detect from the software. And as the former service manager posted above, it seems like a lot of data is downloaded and relayed to BMW.
Its there keep searching lots of forums to cover. Engines, transmissions, and turbos have been replaced.

Exactly. I have faith that an ecu stock reflash based on a file that was taken off your car pre tune install is enough to get it back to where it wouldn't be worth their time to void you... THe real unknown for us f10 guys is if there are things the tunes haven't found that are logging perimeters that we won't know until the first person takes a engine, tranny, turbo VOID... Same way someone probably got their warranty voided on the 335i's when we all found out about the tuner codes popping and then in subsequent years the tuners were able to beat those.

I'd sign up if it was for 200whp or something crazy like cobb and jb4 can do on a simple map, but for 54whp or something tiny lmao hardly seems worth the trouble considering the value of the car/parts at hand

Well Said.

BMW has picked up a development 550i so stage 2 will be out and hopefully will work on the M5. There is one member with a M6 running 11.4 with a stage1 smoking the tires and trapping near 130mph.

Exactly how I feel too. Not worth the trouble for such a small increase. I've been running a stock tune on my car for 14 months and I still think the car has more power than I could possibly use. Still, all I want is a simple top speed limiter removal with no bump in boost and still no tuner can give me just that.

Agreed. Personally i think this car has way more power than i need. I used to have a turbo honda making 500whp and i can tell you this, it was fun and scary but it was never a worry free ride, youre always checking gauges, looking for smoke, smelling for coolant etc. Not to mention i blew a few engines too even the fully built professionally tuned ones trying to do highway pulls. The difference is, you can buy another used honda engine for 700 bucks or a built one for a couple grand. An M5 engine is upwards of 40k, thats a risk im not willing to take. Ill drive and enjoy my car the way the factory intended. More power to you guys willing to take the plunge tho, im yet to hear of anyone blowing up the engine.
No one really knows the limits of this engine and the tranny as to how much RELIABLE power they can handle. Guess time will tell

Maybe it was just rumor and car chat talk but apparently the m3 gintani stage 3.5+ (like 700whp) can't go on the dct because it couldn't take it (a kit I was thinking about getting)... Not sure how this gen of dct's is.

Again I'm not worried about modding, I'm worried about being the first one to find out from BMW: "Oh even though you flashed it back to stock, our new bluetooth 3.2.1.1.23.56.2 auto logging das auto feature logged it and sent us changes in your car on December 5th 2013, so you're VOIDED"

Garage List
BMW has firmed up the DCT to take the extra power. But there's not much overhead from stock, just like the m3. I'd say a 10-15% increase is likely max
