if you buy a used X3 then you can just purchase new custom tunes specific for your truck... by the time you do that you prob would of spend the same amount of just buying a new one and you get the warranty....

well from what ive seen the x3 has more technical issues than the x2.. that and considering the x3 was manufactured overseas while the x2 was made here until sct made the switch.

and yes raul it is the tunes that count but if the machine isnt working right the tunes arent going to work right when they go in the truck

ah k... well me personally i have not had any issues with any of the X3's i have sold... and the X2's are harder to find since they dont make them anymore....

if he can find a used X2 and then buy the tunes then he can do that....

thats a pretty good deal.. but your gonna have to pay another 160+/- for the new tunes which would only be saving you 19 bucks and you wouldn't have warranty on the product... to each their own though

youre right.. but i was talking about the actual tuner itself.. i wasnt talking about the warranty and all of that. just the tuner and how it runs.. does the warranty really matter if the product does what its supposed to?
