Re: Strange misfire, N55

I had similar issues with a different car (lotus)..
A competent dealer re routed the LT leads to the coil packs and this cured it permanently.
Maybe worth a look where the cables are running .

Re: e46 / e92 M3 LSD

I'm pretty sure the warranty does transfer yes .. irrelevant though cos they never break.
I'm not trying to start a negative discussion but for me a quaife makes a good decision due to never needing any maintenance

Re: e46 / e92 M3 LSD

A quaife will last a lifetime though .. surely a better bet than diffs that wear out ?

Re: E82 N55 JB4 Install Help

I'm using a jb+ 5 minutes to fit and very pleased with it. Around 35 bhp gain is gererally acknowledged Where is the best place to get this? What torque increase do you get? Is it a noticable difference? You have the N55 engine? Yes I have a 2010 n55. Bought it from ML performance. About 220 quid. ...

Re: In need of some maintenance advice....

Oil additive ...
NOOO....
Ymmv but oil companies invest millions in refining a quality oil, to add an additive seems counter productive to me .
I'll stand corrected if Marco tells us otherwise though.

Re: Favourite and Popular mods

Does the camber pin mod yield a noticeable difference as a standalone mod ? If so , I must get round to doing it. The only mod I've yet done to my standard 135i is to fit a JB+... That has made a decent difference for 200 quid. I'm longing for a quaife though , I just can't get on with the standard ...

Re: Tuning box questions

I have just installed a JB+ to my 135i .. Reputed to allow around 40 bhp gain. I've driven the car with around 2/3 increase and all is fine. I've now set the trimmer to max which reputively allows +4.5 extra boost. I'm fully aware that a custom map is best but for a cheap and mild mod I find the JB+...

Re: 135i needs a tad more sound

Golf tee mod done ...
JB+ fitted and not even maxed out on the adjustment...
Sounds nice and has enough power for me at the moment , I just wanted enough to keep the 1M honest..
The only thing I'm left wanting is a diff now.
Slippery slope this modding lark !
