  1. has anybody retrofitted combox for CIC in Auckland? Looking to buy a unit but need to buy or make a retrofit wiring harness and other things associated. Little too much to figure out wondering if anyone else has done it
  2. Does anybody have 2017 CIC maps? Want to update mine wondering what's the easiest way to do it I don't have the map data files

    E92 Bluetooth Options

    I got CIC installed by Xtreme Tech. Highly recommend doing that. CIC is a huge upgrade over CCC. I also have 640 prep and now I'm preparing to buy the parts needed for combox retrofit for bluetooth

    e90 Performance Parts Wellington

    Yeah I can't tell really but yes there are big gains performance wise on stage 1 MHD. Look it's like $2-300 it's not even something to think about just do it. @Matth5 did your charge pipe rip? or just blow off? Mine blew off with MHD tune too but it was 2 minute job to put it back on. It hasn't ripped on me. I'm running stage 1 - 98ron fuel map for the last 6 months and my car has 160,000km mileage. So if yours actually ripped or was damaged, maybe it was worn more or bad luck or higher boost I dont know. But as I said above I've ordered a new metal one because it's worth it

    e90 Performance Parts Wellington

    I've ordered / waiting for VRSF: Charge pipe Silicone inlet hoses 5" Street step intercooler Keeping the car very stock so no downpipes etc that messes with OEM spec / emissions etc. Already running MHD Stage 1 tune 98 fine The price of the VRSF is reasonable and quality is good from reviews. Cheaper than COBB / other bigger names.
  8. Hey guys e90 335i Who would you recommend to install a plug & play intercooler, silicone inlet hose & charge pipe in auckland? Pretty basic so hoping not to pay a fortune for install but rather not do it myself. Don't have the jack or tools.

    Just about set on a 335i

    2007 335i with MHD ecu tune Stage 1 here. Stock charge pipe no issues yet but will probably upgrade the charge pipe. MHD ecu tune stage 1 is rated around 340HP, same as 1M.

    Cheap key replacement?

    Anyone know a cheap key replacement supplier in Auckland? E90 3 series with comfort access. I understand it requires some coding and looking for an option cheaper than Dealer

    MHD flash app. Anyone tried this yet?

    all sounds good. Just the part about on/off again. I've read multiple times that turning an engine on/off briefly isn't good in terms of flooding the engine. Seems to be conflicting comments out there about adaptations but your version makes sense.

    Autosure mechanical warranty and modifications

    I'm exploring alloy charge pipe purely as preventative maintenance. In that case, from a legal / fair trade perspective; Insurance companies cannot arbitrarily deny a claim because you've made a modification, even if it is in their terms & conditions. Particularly if you replaced a rubber hose with a alloy version for durability and your claim is unrelated It's all about practicality. If you are making the car more reliable, it's in the interests of the insurance company. However ECU tune probably not the best idea for mechanical insurance lol

    MHD flash app. Anyone tried this yet?

    I can show you how to do it if you're local (CBD auckland) Probably best though that people get the software and flash themselves to limit hassles if something goes wrong FYI flashing Alpina including setup time etc should take max 20 minutes + on road testing time to check all is working. For a workshop to do this $200-300 is around 2.5 - 3hours labour which is a little on the high side but you should also factor in that they will be quoting buffer to allow for anything going wrong, and perhaps a little for liability insurance in case something goes really wrong. So yeah it seems a lot but that's what happens when you want someone else to do something for you & provide you a guarantee/responsibility if something goes wrong!
