with the subject title of 'Active Autowerke NA tune Group Buy', once I have at least 30 emails, it will be official and I will give the okay to send in DME's or the okay to head over to one of our dealers.
AA has been in business for 30 years now and is no stranger to the tuning game. Being an AA customer I can honestly say their customer service, dedication, and knowledge has been great! PLEASE keep in mind that every car will tune differently depending on what octane you will be using and existing mods currently on your M3. I highly recommend a baseline dyno to see where your car is at for your knowledge as well as to help AA give the best possible tune for you.
Here's some info from AA's website:

All payments will be sent to Jean at AA directly. Paid participants will need to ship your ecu to AA located in Miami, Florida. You have the option to have it expedited back to you at your expense. AA can have your ecu tuned in one day and ship right back to you. So if you needed your ecu back asap, just send it to them next day air and have them next day air back to you.
***AA also has certified re-sellers that can upload the tune at their shop. Here is a list of tuners highlighted in RED that can upload the tune for you. An additional service fee from that shop may apply. Call that shop near you for their upload fees.
