                  I have been driving with the current tune for what, 5 years now I think. As with any EMS setup, you can never stop improving it but drive-ability is great. No cold start issues. Yes, manual steering however power steering can easily be added (S38 specific parts included with sale) if you wish to do so. It's just been at the bottom of my to do list.

                  It really is hell of a lot fun to drive. I wouldn't hesitate driving across country with it.
