I had my 3.7 tuned at 5k miles! I bought my pony with 22 miles on it. One doesn't realize how sloppy and sad the factory tune and shift points are in an automatic until you get an aftermarket tune.

Have a great day!

Have you had any issues with warranty work since your car is tuned?

If it's automatic it's worth it. Stick shifts w bolt on mods you won't tell difference.

I tuned my car around 8k miles. I decided there was no way I was waiting until the warranty was over. Refunded my extended warranty and bought the tuner/tune. I'm now sitting on 14k miles (and 5 months later) and haven't had a single problem.

Haven't needed any warranty work so can't comment on that.

Car is a 14 v6 auto.

I'm definitely going to do it. Was actually about to drop the hammer on it, but saw there was a discount code, just have to get post count up and pm Dan. So i'll probably just wait out on that.

Mine is a 14 V6 as well, with 17k miles on it. It does have factory warranty, but the wife wants the aftermarket for ease of mind with 100 dollar deductable.. I didn't know i could cancel the extendo and get reimbursed.

Yup. Refunded it as soon as possible to get the most money back because I decided this car wasn't staying stock for XXXXX miles! Nice chunk of change back in your wallet too.

I'm looking on eBay and I've found the X4 tuners for around $315, but some are for different years like the 05-10 models instead of the 2013 which is what I have. Does it really matter if I buy a tuner that is for a different year model or are they actually specific to the model?

I would not recommend buying it on eBay if you want new. Just buy it from AM directly. Its the way to go. Its $ 379 and 6% off that price from forum discount!

Have a great day!

Something else to keep in mind is the fact that if you buy it from ebay, you still need to buy tunes. That final amount will, in almost every case, be more than having bought it brand new to begin with. Buy it from a retailer to get their tunes included.

Good points. I didn't think about the forum discount or having to buy the tunes. Thanks!
