Heads up for 2008+ X3 owners

OK guys, I just thought I would make this announcement in case you get the following error. It appears with the latest firmware for the X3 device, that there is a small bug. Currently for 2008+ if you have the update and loaded a tune, you will not be able to load a second without going to stock first. The main reason I did the firmware update was so be able to use the new .CEF file formats which must be used now.

So basically each time you want to put a tune you need to go back to stock first. You'll get the ERROR 1034 (Download fail detected, return vehicle to stock if you cannot start it.) if you don't return to stock. My car starts fine though. Blivit informed me about this when I asked him what the problem was. He also said SCT was working on a patch for this.

Just a heads up guys. I know there aren't many of you with a tune, but worth knowing in case.
