    Red face XHP tune

    I'm going to preface this by stating: I hope I'm posting in the correct forum, lol.

    Ok, So I'm wanting to buy my boyfriend the XHP as a surprise, but need a bit of unbiased advice. Would it be worth it to get the full license or just go with one map? Thanks in advance.

    Downpipe, air intake, jb4 tune (running e85 mix), low pressure fuel pump upgrade. I believe that's all. Looking to upgrade turbos next (hybrid or changing to single) and of course fuel lines and tune.

    If he does not have a front mount inter cooler upgrade i'd recommend that first.

    I agree with you but I think she's not looking to spend that much.

    Honestly bimmergf, it depends on what you want to spend. I think the general flash license will be fine.

    Thank you for the recommendation, I will look into it. I asked specifically about the XHP because it is something we've discussed and I know for sure he wants. Out of all of the upgrades, he hasn't mentioned anything about the inter cooler, though.

    Honeslty, it isn't about price. I just want to make sure to get him something that will be utilized in its entirety, potentially. ��

    Maybe you know this but there is a general license and a super license. Super license includes all 3 stages of maps, or at least you get a packages discount on them. General license you must purchase one map. Feedback seems to be stage 3 map is the one to get, not too firm on shifts and good behavior around town, tightens up when you get more aggressive. Sport mode is awesome. I have been running it for some time now, very pleased with it. I had been running Alpina flashes for years prior. Alpina D mode was awful, xHP fixes that to where it is almost all you need normal driving around, and makes some tweaks to S and M modes that are big improvements (no more automatic upshift near redline, better shifting behavior when cornering etc.).

    Great idea for a present, BTW.

    Lol. Yea, I did know that's why I was asking which if getting the 'super license' would be worth it, or just get him the one map with the 'general license'.

    Thanks!! I hope he likes it; I'm excited. I just got the OBD cable and the OTG cable in today. Click here to enlargeClick here to enlarge
