New Owner! Looking for ECU reflash & CF air box

Hello everyone! I'm new here, just bought a mint 2002 E55 that my wife and I love. I sold my beloved 944 Turbo because I have 3 kids now and I can't really fit them in my 944 Turbo. So I sold that a few months ago and we got this E55. What a fantastic car! I would like to get a new or used ECU thats been reflashed/upgraded and am looking for a Renntech or similar carbon fiber airbox. Just want some mild upgrades at this point, please feel free to PM me here or email me: [email protected] or call me 770-846-0440 thank you all very much!

Here is a picture of my car! LOVE IT!

Since you have a 2002, there is a good chance you can tune the ECU via cable, depending on which firmware you have. I'd recommend reaching out to Eurocharged, I have their tune on my 2002, and it was super simple to do remotely via laptop/cable. The tune dramatically woke up the car, as did headers, new cats and a slightly larger exhaust. The tune and exhaust are worth nearly 50hp, no joke! I did the exhaust fab myself, and was into it for less than the CF airbox alone costs.

Also, if you want to lower your car and make it more 'Euro' look, you can swap the #1 spring pads in front/rear. You car looks about the same height as mine was when I bought it, and those lowered the car about 1/2" all around for like $10/corner. My buddy has a 2000, and parked next to each other mine is juuuuust noticeably lower without being inconvenient to drive anywhere.

Nice score, great cars aren't they?

I'd like to tee the dyno chart of the 50hp gain. That's very impressive.
