Re: Bluespark Tuning Box

Edd

I am a bit confuse re your last post.

I spoke to you a couple of weeks ago about a 235i that I have and you said you were able to supply a tuning box no mention that it was still in development?

Bimmercode, which dongle

I want to do some coding on my 235i Someone suggested Bimmercode. I believe the android version uses Bluetooth and apple uses WiFi? I believe the only dongle that works with Bimmercode is Vgate iCar, is this correct? If so, looking at Amazon, there are more than one to buy and some get good reviews ...

Re: Interesting evaluation of the Harman Kardon system

Interesting, I have another play with the ctr speaker delete and the oly thing different was the placement of the music was not as good. To compensate I had to adjust the balance more to the left to get the music in front of me again. So its back to std. Now if I had the time and the inclantion I wo...

Re: Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 or Michelin Pilot Sport 4

Sorry meant to report back. The noise meter proved nothing however my girlfriend felt the car was quieter and less crashy if that helps :)

What I can say is the car feels more planted and turn in and grip is also better

Paddles

I find, due to having small hands, the paddles are a little too far from the edge of the steering wheel.

Can you get extensions?

Re: Interesting evaluation of the Harman Kardon system

I'd have liked to have been able to plug the centre channel speaker back in on-the-fly to hear the difference and make sure it simply wasn't placebo but it seems you can't, presumably because the amp knows it's got an open circuit so needs resetting to power it back up again. Interestin, when I tes...

Re: What ohms are the door speakers

Valid points I think the doors are fed with a frequency that has low frequencies filtered out by the amp, let say 1000 htz up.

Re: 2017 F20 Harmon Kardon Upgrade options?

I replaced the door and under seat speakers with the MBQuartz system (no longer made but still available on ebay) on my F10 5 series. Night and day difference, ended up taking the sub out of the boot. If you just want to replace the under seat subs Earthquake are a well know replacement - http://www...
