Question about DME software update / Shark Injector

Is installing Shark Injector software similar to updating the DME? I mean I know it is updating the DME, but I mean does it update it to the latest DME software plus it's own fine tuning? Or do I have my original 2001 DME software with just specific things adjusted? I've read that the dealership software update can give you smoother idle, better response, etc, but if Shark Injector does that plus the other adjustments I'd just spend a few bucks more for it...

I've done both, but it's still hard to say. This is a thread where you need to hear from Nick G., he'd really know the answer.

When I had the Dealer update my software they said it had never been done since my Bimmer left the factory. It cleared up some issues I was having at the time, but can't really remember if the overall driveability was any better with exception to what I wanted fixed. The Shark certainly felt much better than stock, and I made a little over 6 WHP with it.


Good luck,
