  1. Don't get the CEL lights with the appropriate stage2+ map on MHD , its deactivates the check on the map from memory
  2. Have had aftermarket downpipes on mine for over 4 years -no issues getting a WOF.... I'd look at the VRSF ones as its reasonably priced
  3. Hey John I have the wavetrack installed on mine and another friends e90 335i-, works really well on road and track and is a must option when running some serious power Another friend of mine had the M factory diff installed on his 135 and it unfortunately screwed his whole diff as the pins in the unit popped out and munched things Was one of the units apparently under recall due to a factory issue with the unit bolts not being secure - I will give M factory its dues that it stepped up and sent a new diff and paid for all the work required to fix / sort the issue btw - if you get a LSD i would suggest a few of the re-codes as below http://www.onelapx1.com/blog/how-to-make-your-bmw-actually-fun
  4. Interesting take about the E46 vs the E9X models John I came from a E46 325 before I got the 335i , tho my E46 was pretty much just standard so for me the experience was a big upgrade going to the 335i The stock suspension / runflat tires on the 335i is pretty weak imo , scared myself a few times when I was running a tune/upgraded power and a trackday at hampton showed me the glaring weakness of the setup , its probably a fine setup at stock power levels WIth the M3 suspension parts fitted (all apart from the rear M3 sway bar) with KW coilovers, LSD and sticky PSS , I think it handles well now for the power level its at It sucks with the model/year of your 335i john that your auto transmission doesn't support the transmission flash (XHP or Alpina) , to me that was a another big upgrade Also when you run a ethanol map on the car, you'll notice how different the car is , that TQ life These engines are surprisingly strong , quite a few people in the USA have been running 600RWHP+ (with single or upgraded twins) on the stock engine The take from the community is that above 650+RWHP on stock block is when it will go at some stage I've nearly put on 100,000km from my 4 years ownership of the car in my rear mirror ?
  5. I have heard of Prestigio - from memory you had to be in the "prestige group" when running with playday group and you could get insurance for the day at the track
  6. MT option
  7. Yes you can go from Alpina > XHP there is a bug if the alpina flash wasn't done correctly on the TCU (https://bmw.spoolstreet.com/threads/xhp-flashtool-official-beta-results-thread-for-6hp21.1483/page-8#post-11373) With the tune on your car , I would suggest flashing back to stock map via the cobb and then doing MHD (my 2cents)
  8. The MHD OTS maps imo are conservative - you'll be fine with the stage1 98 map , but as always when you change stuff up , just log for awhile and confirm everything is looking right Ya that sucks about the earlier 06/07 models not being able to use the Alpina flash - if you can get this TCU flash , it will be such a huge difference as the stock one is soo laggy imo XHP is the new option for the auto guys , not sure what the deal is with the earlier years (06/07) - you can download the app on the device you're using for MHD app - connect up to the car , run the app and connect - will show what maps/options are available
  9. Fair enough I switched over from the Alpina flash to the XHP stage3 map over the weekend - D&S mode are a big improvement over the Alpina version and M mode is faster with upshifts and downshifts but I don't think I have done the 100km driving range for the transmission to fully adapt yet Loving how M mode won't upshift at redline now , makes things easier
  10. Would also recommend you just run the Stage1 map with your current mods initially - What trans have you got John in your 335i? Same with N54 , stage2 are recommend with downpipes I wouldn't be keen putting anything less then 98 on a modded n54/n55
  11. Did the night drag wars the other month for the first time in the 335i Only did like 4 passes as it got really busy down there, 4th attempt took 1/2hr to que
  12. Quite a difference eh steve on E40 vs 98 maps, just wait till you run the E60 OTS/custom map - that TQ curve I got the kit a few months ago from Fuel -IT as well , pretty bummed out the new flex fuel system on the MHD side uses another ethanol sensor - apparently the fuel-it won't work with the kit Just bear in mind on the 335i - you can run 30/40 mix with the stock LPFP (low pressure fuel pump) - if you want to run more on the stock turbos/upgraded turbos , you will need to get at least a stage2 LPFP from Fuel-it
  13. Very nice build Which generation of the RB turbo's? are they the new RB evo versions? Interested to know which kit you'll get for port injection - I see there are quite a few vendors doing the new intake manifold with port injection ports built in etc
  14. Hey Julian, I would get the MHD over the cobb for the same purpose you are looking for Haven't looked at what pricing of the cobbs are - last time i looked they were around 800-1000 US for a cobb verus how much for MHD (depends whether you have android device already etc) Ya - I was running the BMS flash stacked with the JB4 - but now with MHD - no point running stacked mode with stock turbos unless I was running hybrid/single turbo upgrades MHD is very easy to setup with your car - more then happy to show you a demo if you're in auckland
  15. Cobb is obsolete , they stopped development on the n54 platform a few years ago - I have switched over to the MHD and it's pretty easy and being able to get a Protune was a big factor for me changing from the jb4 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
