    It's true, just like the Cobb Accessport for EVO, Suby, GTR, etc and the hand helds that have been out for years for the domestics. Connect, read and flash via OBDII. Ive personally used the AMR hand held. It's straightforward and works. Make sure you are connected to a batter charger tho, but that's standard protocol for any OBDII flashing to make sure you keep battery voltage up during the writing process.

    thanks for the vote of confidence on the amr ... if i decide to set aside the carlsson piggy i will give the amr writer a try
    and certainly concur about the good voltage levels needed ... i built a 35A power supply just for those occasions
    so whaddaya know a defib in the garage too ... 8-)

    Well there we have it, ill give this a go when it comes time to upgrade hell yeah.
    noticed i need new tires, probably going to set this whole process back a bit having to buy new ones... super annoyed at that.

    Random question for TK, if i go with that stage 1 or 2 package can i option out of the BOV somehow, i don't need that. just curious, its not like its adding $1000 bucks to the order or anything.

    I'm going through the tuning process as I write this. I'm using the OE tuning handheld, looks identical to the AMR device. OE has a 20% off sale so I jumped! I sent them my stock tune last night and this morning received my new tune. I'll load it after work. I may be kissing my warranty good bye. They say you can go back to stock anytime but I'm sure with the sophistication level of MB, they could detect it. I did the IE tune for my DD Audi A3 cab and wow what a difference. No other upgrades....yet.

    Oh yeah the My Genius thingie! I bumped into that sometime ago, then saw AMR branded their version
    Sure looks like identical cousins ... 8-)
    When does the 20% deal go away?
