SCT SF3 or SCT X3???

hi!! i have a focus 2.0L 2012, i want a tune for my car, but unfortunately i live in thailand. so i need to get a friend to bring or send one over. the problem is i dnt know which one to get??? i know the sf3 comes with pre-loaded tunes and the x3 doesn't.

i've got a custom exhaust made and installed into my vehicle, its a 2.0" straight pipe to the lunchbox(i dont know what its called, but the big box at the back.)
A k&n dop-in and a snorkel delete.

so the question is, would the sf3 be enough??? or should i get the x3 and get the tuning software and dongle as well??? and if i get the sf3, could that be custom tune with the software and dongle afterwards???

i want to get the most out of this tune, and i dnt want to waste my money on the wrong device. i think i'll be the first mk3 to get this done in thailand.

thanks in advance for the advices!!

i've contacted a pre-ordering shipping company, will that work??? i'll send them a link to your product and they'll order it and get it sent to thailand. will that work??? but i took a look at FedEx, they charge around about $80 for a week shipment, and about $110 for 3 days. which will work better??? and how will i be able to pay for the product if shipping it by FedEx was the option???
