savin up for SCT

I'm getting X3.

What are the different tunes I can down load like mileage tow and perf. not canned

How do they differ. perf with perf, tow with tow, mileage with mileage.

And which Perf, tow, or mileage is best for what application

Thank you all

Innovative's custom tunes are great, highly recommended, BUT I'd only get them if you have gauges. Gauges are a must, you'd be surprised how much your EGT's rise...

thanks. my father hates pillar gages cuz they remind him of rice burners. I have been persistent on showing him many different pics of gages.

Thanks for your comments keep them coming.

There are some cool ways to mount the gauges otherwise, there is room for one in the dash, or other places

i (and probably a few more will agree) get the best fuel mileage running on the extreme setting, averaging about 20 mpg in city. that is, if i can keep my foot out of it.
