Re: Cobb Autosport/135i help

Maybe when they said the control unit they meant the ECU, and my 2011 one was replaced with the newer 2012 and later version which you can not flash. Can't think of anything other than that tbh

Will these fit?

Don't shoot me down here as I know nothing on wheel/tyres sizes etc, but would these fit on 135i coupe?

8x18 ET34(front), 8.5x18 ET37(rear)
PCD: 5x120
Centre bore 72.5mm

my guess is no.

BMW professional head unit, coding?

Picked up one of these to replace my business. Works fine apart from the AUX is not available in the menu, just radio, CD and USB (don't have USB)

I am assuming this needs to be coded to my car to allow the AUX option?

Anyone on here that can do this instead of taking it to BMW? :P

Re: 135i fuel pump issue - Edit, not fuel pump WTF

Well it was the control unit, replaced that with the updated programming and it fired up straight away. Then the BMW 'technician' broke a pipe, which is on back order from germany, won't be ready until Tuesday lol

Bad news is I think the new control unit means I can't run the Cobb again :(

Re: 135i fuel pump issue - Edit, not fuel pump WTF

Though it was the fuel pump, wrong.

BMW said the 'programming' was corrupted. Tried to re-install, failed.

Then they got an updated disc from germany or some sh*t, failed again.

Now they are replacing the whole control unit. DAFUQ.

Broked.
