As you can tell from the title I'm as green as one could be to tuning! Thanks to you guys I've learned that BM3 is the way to go.
If there is already a thread for this please feel free to point me in the right direction.
Starting off with a few questions...
Looking at the OTS maps under the search for "N55" I have seen EWG and EWGZ. Is the "Z" for the hybrid turbo N55?
Last thing I want to do is try to download the wrong tune.
I have very stock M235i just removed my Dinantronics tune for a little more fun but only other thing I have done would be Dinan Springs.
Do you guys recommend a BM3 guru I can speak to and is willing to answer some stupid questions?
My stock # is: WBA1J7C5XEVW84306
Had a new motor put in spring of 2018 by BMW hopefully that doesn't change too much. Figured they won't give me a hybrid turbo for free though lol! 24k on the motor so a fresh start.
Also hoping this will help some more of the new guys out there looking around.
Cheers!

I called Dinan and they said they do not recommend I try to run them both at the same time especially when flashing the system for the first time.
