    Quick Questions

    The angel eyes on my E91 are being weird. Often neither side angel eyes work, but then sometimes both sides work fine. It looks like they have LEDs fitted, very white. Is there something in the control module that turns the lights off if it detects they are LED but resets later? There are no error codes on the dash or in idrive.

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Drove my new to me, moderately tickled, 335i back from Hamilton. Stoked to be back in a BMW, such a nice car to drive. Bloody good at passing too 😅

    Lol at the SMG book, with the needle buried deep in the redline, with all the "cold engine" lights lit. Not really being a good role model, are you BMW?
  7. How does it even get that? Surely thats just the VIN on the DME, so it could have had the DME swapped, not the engine?

    Its a shame the one he reviewed is so poverty pack. He would've lost his sh*t with a fully loaded 750il, so many quirks and features.
  9. Why can't they send the used injectors to a workshop closer to you, if they insist on them? Massive f**k around having to get the car back to Auckland! Dave's on the right course too, lock that "warranty" down hard. I can imagine the hassles if you had to claim that "warranty" though.

    IIRC isnt there something about having to own the car for a period of time after having it complied under SIV? Gorgeous car, always loved the clown shoe.

    Quick Questions

    You'd need to do some research as to if crank case pressure is an issue. If it was that bad i would expect lots of leaks from lots of seals, so you would ideally want the engine completely degreased and washed down so you can see where its coming from. Its usually fairly obvious if its the valve cover gasket, as itll leak down the low side of the head and onto the exhaust, but no where else on the head.

    Quick Questions

    Valve cover gasket? Common on the petrol versions as engine tilts over to exhaust side meaning that's the low point of the head, not sure on diesel but presume the same. Turbo failure would be smoke from exhaust, not engine bay, unless exhaust is leaking badly.

    MHD flash app. Anyone tried this yet?

    Yeah it's not stock enough I guess as it's running stage 2+ currently. I'll leave it on that tune but being the kid I am, I want to play with burbles lol. Such a shame you can't transfer to another Google account but still be Vin locked.

    MHD flash app. Anyone tried this yet?

    Hey guys, didn't want to start my own thread so just popping in here. I'm looking at buying a car with an mhd tune on it. I understand tunes are Vin and Google account locked, so I'm guessing I'll need to buy the app and tune myself if I wanted to tweak anything (like playing with the burble)? I'm also guessing I'll have no way to get the stock tune back if I needed to? Would there be any issue with me buying the same tune as on the car and loading it again?
