Re: Stage 2 with Standard Cat

Oh yeah, I think the length is different on the 240, longer. No problems, the car hasn't had a MOT yet, too young but its been fine. I had a decat before, but I swapped because the smell was terrible on start up. This is a lot better, just a tiny smell, if you stand round the back. Once its warm it...

Yeah I would agree, mine was a really early stage 2 as well, the power seems to have gone up now days!

Re: Bootmod3 now available to B58!!

Can you overwrite another suppliers remap with Bootmod3? I have a stage 2, but am selling the parts (family, want a bit less noise) so was thinking of stage 1. Also I can delete that damn cold start which drives me up the wall.

Re: Stage 2 with Standard Cat

If on road/DD duties you will be fine. If prolonged WOT, you should still be OK as DME may back off timing/boost/fuelling etc etc if any parameters are nearing their caps - assuming stg2 remap is decent (as opposed to generic OTS map bought blind). Worse that'll happen is B58 goes into limp mode. I...

Stage 2 with Standard Cat

Hi Guys

I currently am running a stage 2 (M140i) with a sports cat and BCS exhaust. I want to start putting the car back to stock, first thing being the exhaust and cat. Will running the stage 2 remap on a standard cat cause issues?

Transmission Temp. Stop Carefully

Hi Guys I had an error come up on the car this morning; Drivetrain. Possible to continue journey. Then followed up by: Transmission temp. Stop carefully I had only just turned the car on so there was no temp to speak of, I may have drove forwards a little quickly as the cold start is loud and I didn...

Re: Looking for Mx40i sportscat experiences

I’ve gone from a decat to a sports cat (BCS 100 cell). I changed to a bcs non res cat back at same time to be fair, but hated the decat noise, sounds tinny and crap imo. It now sounds great and isn’t too offensive neither (unless wide open throttle lol).

Re: New wheels - BBS CH-R

I got same exact same wheels in 19", hopefully being delivered next week. Upload a pic when they are on! I am going for 235/35/19 fronts, with 255/30/19 rears. My current wheels (245/35/19 all around) scrub a lot. I didn't want to risk 35s on the rear, or wider on the front. Saying that my current w...
