Plastic covers on cables are too sensitive to heat and will melt, try to avoid contact with hot surface
and don't put close to exhaust like i did

The more expensive one allows you to make adjustments, while the lower priced one makes all the adjustments on its own. If you effortlessly understand what I'm referring to, you are probably a candidate for the more expensive one...

Hello All,

I just recently purchased a 2017 Smart Cabrio , I went with the Stage 2 AM package...

1) ODB Flash - Completed and easily done

2) Go Peddle - Completed and easily done

3) ECU - haven't done this yet, plan to tomorrow - after looking on forum , i see pics of which plugs to use, but not of placement of ECU once. Complete.

Any pics or guidance on module placement would be appreciated

How do you like the Stage 2 package after a year? I'm still debating whether to go ahead of not mainly due to reliability and warranty reasons.

Where did you end up placing the module?

Thanks!
