So it's not really their fault they want to come out with a more reliable product and that takes time as we all know. There is a fierce demand for a more usable VE based engine management system and I do like what I've seen so far. Now we just get to sit back and wait.

The MoTeC M1 series is out in limited release. I have an M150 in house to do some project development.

Due to how these ECU are being marketed currently, quoting pricing is a bit silly because what a full blown wide open M150 sells for is not the same as what say a BMW specific package M150 would sell for (if/when such a thing exists). I will say the current project I am working on with the M150, it looks like we may come in UNDER the price of our previous M800 solution, with a much more capable package.

This is probably the most powerful/capable ECU system on the open market right now, and as such the possibilities are almost limitless. It is also the OEM engine controller in the new Noble M600, to give an idea of what it is capable of. However the issue is taking a piece of hardware like this, and having the R&D resources to commit to making say a proper BMW kit (not just another piggyback type installation), and then having a market for it when you are done to justify the investment.

Something also to think about when talking price on a MoTeC. The M800 is still one of those ECUs that everyone uses as a benchmark (for good reason). Now keep in mind that it is 10+ years old at this point. The guys who bought M800 early in the day are sitting on a relative bargain compared to those who wanted to "save money" and have since tried a few of the "ECU of the year" that have rolled out in that time frame. It may not be the right ECU for everyone, and there are certainly other good choices out now, but looking at just the dollar amount is probably not the right way to shop for your engine management solution. I doubt many BMW cars would be sold if that was the only criteria that mattered when everyone went car shopping.

Using an m1 and getting rid of the factory dme would be a real big project but would be real nice
