Guys can anyone help me out with installation instructions for racechip on G30 M550. I have managed to get it installed but I am sure there must be an easier way as it took me nearly 3-4 hr as I had to remove so many parts to get to the sensors. I can not imagine going through this process every time I have to take my car for service at the dealership.

I have contacted racechip multiple times but they kept sending me useless pictures of the previous model 550.

So I took the car to the local track about a month ago... it was warm and humid with DA around 3200. The original 60-100 runs when I got RC GTS Black were done with DA of about 400.

This time 60-100 went up from best of 4.78 to 5.09 seconds. The best 1/4 mile was 11.87... 0-60 was 3.73
Since 60-100 went up by 0.3 sec, I am pretty sure when weather cools down the car is easily capable of mid 11s with just RC tune.
Attached are the dragy results from September.

thank you for sharing. so by the looks of it, pretty similar performance as the dinan elite v2. But yes, the slightest change in climate and or condition can make a big enough difference.
