  1. Do those people even bother with certs? I thought they just try to avoid getting caught...
  2. I get about 11cm of clearance at the front with the KWV2s on my E92. I'm pushing the limits in some car park buildings and driveways. Any non-sealed road requires extreme caution. I'd agree with post above suggesting 100mm as a minimum, any lower and you''ll have major hassles getting around. And a sump as the lowest hanging part... lol I would not be comfortable with that. At least on mine it's the chassis and exhaust depending on the area so I can afford to have it touch the ground on occasion.

    The ultimate chick magnet

    I showed this to my female friend fully expecting her to crack up laughing... "That looks cool!" Maybe it's not a joke after all The first question on the Q and A is a crack-up too "Whoa! Lock up your daughters!"

    Looks like it's been corrected to "M-Sports" now.

    MHD flash app. Anyone tried this yet?

    No idea. You could drop VRSF an email to confirm, if they don't explicitly say RHD fits then be wary. I'd suggest before buying any DP to always see if you can confirm RHD fitment, I don't think all American sellers bother to test it.

    Hmm dunno, you could get someone to weld in a new hole. Or avoid getting into my situation and buy a brand known to fit haha.

    MHD flash app. Anyone tried this yet?

    No, they disable the emissions error codes which does the job as long as it's still connected. When the connector is unplugged you get a different error code which MHD doesn't disable. I've asked for them to disable this code too but as I'm apparently the only one with this issue they don't want to spend time on it. I might try to plug the sensor in and tie it to something in the engine bay some day. But I suspect the weird readings it'll get from doing that might cause other issues. And I have to take apart crap in the engine bay to reach the connector which I don't want to deal with now haha.

    Just watch out for RHD fitment. The VRSF E series N55 downpipe did not state anything for RHD fitment on the page... and as it turns out you can't plug in the secondary O2 due to the steering rack. Usable... just means even MHD won't disable the check engine light.

    LOL seriously, people that sell cars for a living can't tell a 320i apart from an M3? Wow

    Quick rant thread.

    So do newer BMWs, at least the Xenon ones.

    BMW Recall

    BMw doesn't seem to be doing this recall outside of the US. Same with the 335i driveshaft part. We're only getting the airbag recall. Guess they're only scared of Americans suing them.

    Maybe http://www.hivelocity.co.nz/ (Gavin Bellars) would do an MHD tune? BM Workshop Botany recommended him when I asked for advice on a tune. I haven't had time yet but I've been planning to contact him about a custom tune, I was hoping he'd provide MHD flashable maps. Really no reason a proper tuner couldn't do this, they make the maps the same way regardless. If they can't, then maybe they're doing some other hack job rather than a DME flash tune? Edit: Website not working ATM, but they have a Facebook page too: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Hi-Velocity-136383189765362/about/

    Z4m coupe for sale $39k

    There was one going at 35k last year some time but it didn't stay up for long! Same colour as this, would have been a good buy for sure. That's the cheapest I've seen. I'd pick one over an E46 M3 for the uniqueness.

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    An appropriate term for the kind of person who would do a modification like that, yes
  15. You'll probably need to take care of some expensive services soon if they haven't been done. Rod bearings and DCT service should be done around 100-150k.
