Re: BCS's Midpipe for MPE M140/M240's

I have the stock midpipe with the silencer removed but kept the resonator. I also have the MPE so you'll basically have the same setup as me. It sounds perfect. Louder than stock but not too loud. Not sure you'll see a power gain though. Sounds good mate, looking forward to it now. You dont happen ...

Being able to use google maps on the iDrive screen would be amazin...

Re: KSB Splitter Kit - eBay Special.

They seem to stick out quite a bit.

Is that just personal preference? Could they be mounted more flush if someone wanted to?

Do you guys declare these motech mods to insurance? If so how much difference in annual price does it make?
A lot of insurance companies won't cover wheel spacers.

Are ML out of stock? I ordered one last week and it was here a few days later.

I’ve ordered from them now. The site said 2-3 weeks for delivery but I’ve had it confirmed that it will be dispatched tomorrow.

Re: Car ECU Update... Who/Where can it be done

If you ask them to update wo flagging any faults then brace yrself for a big bill. Times my car has been for warranty/Mpbbk FW flash, the duration has always overrun due to prolonged time the car is hooked up to BMW servers. As RDowson wisely says, agree a price beforehand. My Mpbbk FW flash - agre...

Re: Car ECU Update... Who/Where can it be done

The PSU is for the car. ECU flashing is done with the engine off and the battery can't supply a constant and stable voltage. If the voltage drops you could be saying goodbye to an ECU. Ahh makes sense, car is in for a service next week, I'll see if I can talk them into updating anything outstanding...

Re: Car ECU Update... Who/Where can it be done

You need a proper PSU when doing it with E-Sys otherwise you risk messing things up. Which ECU's do you need flashed and why? Purely to update any issues BMW R&D find over the years, as @Blind Pugh said, certain updates do help the overall feel of the car. As for the PSU, my laptop has a 130w psu, ...
