Additional Information

Smooth Power Flash Tuner Stage 1 Software for 2016-Present 750i and 2018-Present M550i and M850i with engine model N63R.


CarBahn software is designed to deliver the highest safe output possible. Smooth Power means software tuned correctly, not over-tuned. We always try to make a natural torque curve, not excessive torque at low RPM that falls off rapidly at high RPM. Excessive torque will break the tires loose, break the engine and drivetrain. Managed torque with a smooth delivery makes the car easier to drive thereby faster and more reliable. Most if not all our competitor tunes attempt to run too much boost, resulting in active knock corrections which causes surging during acceleration. CarBahn software also incorporates torque reduction in 1st and 2nd gears for manageable power delivery.


Most if not all tunes on the market except CarBahn reduce safety parameters in the software in an attempt to extract more power. These safety parameters such as knock control sensitivity, super knocking control sensitivity, and catalyst thermal protection are tuned into your OEM software to prevent engine and catalyst failure. When we reduced all the supposed power robbing software protections we lost less than 8 HP and 8 LB/FT Torque. We have seen many damaged engines as result of reducing these safety parameters! It hardly seems worth it for 8HP.

Doing it yourself:

A note on self-tuning tools. There are now programs available that you can buy to tune your car yourself. Many of these tools come with canned programs. Be careful as tuning a high output engine requires tremendous knowledge and experience to extract maximum power without damage.

Emissions legality:

A note on down pipes (removing the catalyst). We have run back to back dyno runs with the cat on and off and the power gain is much smaller than most people claim. We all need to breathe the air. Its difficult to get your car its required emissions test without catalyst and it’s illegal.

High boost with stock engine:

We have seen many damaged engines as result of making too much power with a stock engine. While modern engines are very reliable, it is easy to add large turbochargers and water methanol injection and break the engine. On the F8X, maximum safe power on a stock engine is 600 LB/FT flywheel torque. CarBahn makes high performance engines designed to handle more power. More information is available on this web site.

    Awesome – very pleased with this tune for my 2018 M550i. It’s a daily driver so I am not racing around but I like the extra power if I want to get on it. Oh yeah, the gas mileage is actually better in comfort mode cruising on the highway which I do for my daily commute. I am getting about 32 – 33 mpg on the interstate no problem. I like the fact that this tune works safely with the stock components. Definitely recommend this tune over the others I’ve seen on the forums and online.

    Outstanding and linear power on my M550i 2019.
    The acceleration in Sport Plus mode is simply brutal and turn this car into a completely different beast.
    I highly recommend, no issue what so ever, although I was a bit concerned at first with the decrease in gas mileage, partially caused by my heavy foot and the fact that I now always stays in Sport+ mode 😉
    Anyways, the experience is awesome, no regret. Just get it.
