Me too. After hearing about bent rods when pushing this platform too far with turbo upgrades, I think there will be a limit to how much power I can get out of this truck. I wanted a GLC63 first but they weren't out in early part of 2017. I am interested in the 2020 X3 M. The M3 can be made a monster with just tune so I can only imagine the X3M. If I am upgrading to a GLC63 I want to wait for the digital dash. I am just hoping these tuners can tear down the engine in the 43 models and see where the bottle neck is. I would love to keep my truck and bigger turbos.

This is good to know Loungn. Thanks for correcting me, I hate to spread misinformation.

P31 C63 Coupe-GLC 63 S AMG COUPE
Ecu tune

Most dealers need to be confident that the tune that is being used is developed with AMG philosophy in mind. Renntech is known for having one of the founding members of the AMG development. The reason Mercedes AMG recommends Renntech.

Bent rods are a direct result of detonation, reason being not having proper fuel/ Octain for your tune, . I have been running tunes for years no problems what so ever. I have a GLC 63 not one problem running Renntech 93 ecu tune. I also run methanol no issues. The GLC 43 is built rock solid. This platform shares the motor with the 4 matic 43 car version. I see these running solid mods no issues.

I'm not looking to go that far, mod-wise, and kind of feel if I did, might as well pony up for the GLC63. I was pretty excited about the X3M, as well, but a tad disappointed it doesn't look that much different than the X3 M40i and since I'm an Android guy, BMW not having Android Auto would probably lead me right back to the 2020 GLC's. A shame, because I'm sure the X3M will drive great as I think the X3 M40i actually drives a bit better than my GLC43. Don't know enough to know if p31 is correct, but seems our MB V6 has been pretty solid.

I drove the X3 M8675309 and liked the drive. The problem is that itís the same ugly X3 IMO. Too long has f a nose and a ďwe kinda gave up at the ***Ē. M cars are nice but I think itís been a long time since BMW made an ultimate driving machine that wasnít a M them.

Iíll admit that I find the M3 cheap feeling but the M5.....thatís a different story and the only one to consider. IMO

AMG GLC43
I have a RaceChip tune that I am willing to part with for half what I paid for if interested. Been to the dealer twice and no issues (I did remove it before visits). I really have not used it that much probably because I donít drive my SUV like I did my car. I am either going to go all out with an ECU or just keep it stock.

I am super happy with the BMS Jb4 and we have a pretty large Whatsapp group shared with the C43 guys. The group is pretty lively and they share a wealth of information on tweaking and get the most out of the JB4. Not many people in the group have a GLC43 and the few guys that do have ran a 0-60 in 4.0-4.2 and quarter mile in 12.0-12.2. This is pretty good considering MB rated the GLC43 0-60 4.7 and quarter mile at 12.9-13.0. The only mod is JB4 and we don't have launch control. I am waiting for my intakes and downpipes to be installed and I will do some 0-60 and quarter mile runs to see where I stand, as I should be faster than those guys as I have more power mods. Nothing is truly undetectable; however, a lot of guys in our group have gone to service or got warranty work done and removed the JB4 before going to the dealer. Not one single issue has been reported about the jb4. .

There are other piggy backs like RaceChip GTS, Dinan, and a few others. I am not sponsoring JB4 but, I do like the implementation and ease of removal with out having to plug up ODB2 devices to keep flashing to stock when needed.
Hey Dame

I cant see the JB4 for the glc 43, can you post the link?
Did you just use the c43 chip?

Cheers
