My Ride: 2004 325i Wagon
Tuning Tech FS experience

Went down to Tuning Tech FS in Crofton MD near BWI airport. Frank Smith runs it. I came in for a tune on my twinscrew 325i. He looked at it and figured out it needed new primary 02 sensors. It went on the dyno and it didnt end up needing a tune. Got to say Frank is a great and will shoot you straight. He charges reasonable prices and does good work. While my car was getting the O2's replaced he was tuning a 325 that had gotten a 330 long block and he got 50 hp when he was done.

My Ride: M3
Indeed Frank with Tuning Tech FS is great guy.I just called for questions with how to tune the SMG on my M3 and he took his time to explain everything in details.
He offered to even tune it for free since I was local and there was no need for a cable to be sent out.My car is running totally different now.So happy I went there!
I have also a big impression with his shop and the guys that work there.The day I visited they were quite busy tuning other M3's (supercharged of course) but still took the time and showed me every car at the shop and explained with details what was done to them.They had very reasonable prices on SC kits and other products.Very friendly people, great shop!

My Ride: E39 ///M5
I had my M5 tuned by Frank and nothing but the best to say about him! He does this as a hobby and isn't in it for the money. He is a GREAT asset in the DMV BMW community. Highly recommend.

Frank is the man. Come by to the dyno day at his shop on the 22nd of this month, it was a great turnout last time.
