    First post here!

    I'll be ordering an SCT X4 here soon and like everyone else I'm thinking ahead on what tunes I will want to get. I live in a western mountain state, have to deal with old man winter and I'm wondering what peoples preferred tunes are for winter driving.

    Would Performance/Tow without the trans tune be an option? or is that still too much in those winter conditions?

    Adaptive? Or just straight up Perf-Econ?

    Thanks!

    Any tune should be fine in those situations. MPT doesn't remove the logic in the pcm that accounts for those things, but if you find a situation in your driving/commute that is less an desirable, let MPT know and they can factor it in.

    After seeing all the vids of people turning tires and the touchy throttle it made me wonder about those wintery days. Prob just run 87 Perf-Econ during the winter.

    Here we are nearly 8 months later and I finally pulled the trigger on the X4! Just have the stock SCT canned 87 octane on right now and I was more impressed than I thought I'd be. I had zero expectations but it seems to hold gears a little longer, little better pull, little better note from the exhaust, idle seems a touch smoother and mpg seems like it wants to go up a fair amount from the short (typical) drive I just did. Over all better than I had thought it would be though probably not enough to justify the price without being able to put on the custom tunes.

    Having said that I am very much looking forward to seeing what happens with the Perf-Tow and PR-X tunes here in a few days!!
