  1. Dropped in an AFE dry filter yesterday for that 0.0005% HP gain. Sounds a bit nicer. Old filter was dirty AF

    That m performance exhaust looks terrible! I'll take it off your hands to get rid of it for you 🙊👀
  3. Apparently the pulley/tensioner is all fine, according to BM Workshop. The movement is minimal and expected they say 🤷‍♂️ Bonnie #1 still needs that coolant hose replaced under the intake manifold. I have to decide when I want to do it, and who I want to pay the huge labour cost of doing it haha. The battery is also flat atm, which I need to charge. Hoping to sort that out over the next couple of months.
  4. A couple of tasks done this week, for peace of mind! VRSF charge pipe installed. Replaced the stock plastic one Spark plugs all replaced with new ones (old ones were about 60% worn) Full oil service with Castrol Edge 5w30. Amount of oil drained was 5L - OEM capacity is 6.5L, so there was 1.5L missing. Could not find any leaks anywhere. Tyres were running way too soft (whoops) - there was a little cracking on the side wall on some of them. Aired them to ~36/40psi for now. Air filter needs replacing - figured I'll go with a higher flow filter (no im not getting a pod filter to suck hot air from the bay!!). I've ordered the AFE DRY s drop-in filter, which should arrive in a day or two. Not sure if it's going to affect performance at all (given that I have a mhd stage 1 tune), but at least it will be a new filter There is some small cracking on the diff bushing, but nothing major or to worry about at the moment
  5. Xhp flash all done. Bought and hooked up a 20amp charger to it. However the initial flash took only 5 mins! Much quicker than the expected 30mins. Ots flashes afterwards takes 30 seconds. Have not driven yet - just charged the battery up to full etc. Need to baby it around for 50 miles apparently for adaptations to set
  6. Been reading all the posts regarding the battery charger. Fun times. Anyway, I'm looking to invest in a slightly bigger charger (but probably not as flash as Glenn's one ). Mainly because I'm looking to do my xHP flash pretty soon as well. Unless someone has a charger (at least 20-25A that they can lend to me for a day / few hours) I managed to do the big MHD flash (~40 mins) with my CTEK 5 amp charger without any issue, but from what I hear the xHP flash draws a lot more current than the MHD flash. So to err on the safe side I'll probably look towards a 20-30A charger for my piece of mind. If anyone has any brand or model recommendations (e.g. CTEK), what are your favorites?
  7. VRSF charge pipe arrived today. Will try get it installed over the next week. Also ordered new spark plugs and planning to do an oil change in the next couple of weeks (although last service was ~4500kms ago apparently)
  8. MHD Stage 1 ots 98RON map done. New VSRF charge pipe on the way, just in case... you know. Considering FMIC/VSRF downpipe now. Mod bug alert. Have made a post about with some questions:
  9. Howdy. Im sure there must be a post about this somewhere here but I can't find it. I've got a VRSF chargepipe on the way for my N55 M135i. The car currently has a MHD Stage 1 ots tune (98RON) so figured I should replace the stock charge pipe, which might blow. The stock charge pipe is brand new anyway, since the last one blew before the stage 1 map was even done. Im doing things step by step - next step would be FMIC or downpipe. Ive got a good deal on a VRSF catless downpipe atm and was wondering if this can be installed safely while keeping the current stage 1 tune and not throwing CEL's all the time. I'm going to replace the charge pipe myself but not the downpipe - i'm guessing any shop (such as Euro Surgeon) would be able to install it? Keen to hear thoughts/ideas
  10. He was such a great dude and a huge contributor here as well as his other fields (Software, Futsal etc.). Very very sad news. RIP Atta
  11. @qube keep the car! Just sell me your MPE 😉
  12. Got some ok shots during one of the sunrises this week. Been enjoying the machine a lot. Things that need doing is likely a repacement of the tensioner or idler pulley. The tensioner wobbles a bit during idle (completely stable at >1k rpm) - im guessing either the bearings on that is out or the bearings in idler pulley causing belt to pull tensioner laterally - who knows. BMWorkshop said its not terrible but should eventually be replaced - so will look at sorting that soon.
  13. Have driven a few hundred k's so far. Quite loving the car - it's a very fun agile little machine with a heck of a lot of torque. I was surprised at the lack of lag. Have had a few small bad lucks over the last week. One of the intercooler pipes at cracked 2 days after I got the car - it threw off some sensor and put the car into limp mode + displayed a drivetrain problem on screen. Replacing the pipe (under warranty) resolved the issue. Then this morning, some evil soul scraped my rear bumper when parallel parking behind the car (see last image), and left no note! Now there's a little bit of repainting i'll need to do to that. Apart from that - loving it. Very stoked with the alcantara interior and steering wheel. There are a few things I have plans to do in terms of exhaust, sound system (those who know me, know I'm obsessed with quality sound). Anyway, here's a few recent pics
  14. Sweet. Do you service it yourself or at the dealership? (Guessing u have factory warranty, so needs to be serviced at BMW?) I'll flick you a message sometime, would be keen to understand how you're finding the car and what to look out for. Might pop by to the Sunday meetup in Feb.
  15. Had no idea you had one too now! I got it from the dealership who did a service recently. Still reckon change the oil?
