Re: Rob180bhp e92 m3 lsd and rear axle install

Hi all, Sorry to jump in late with stupid questions, but its hard separating the wheat from the chaff in this thread. Im on with collecting the parts for m3 diff swap. Have shafts, plan on grabbing a diff soon (3.15 I assume is the better way to go?). Prop wise which shaft can be gotten cheaply to b...

Re: Git-r's road/track progress M135i

Just a note from experience. I'd avoid Litchfield for mapping on a BMW. Mine came with a Litchfield Mapped cobb on it and I've taken it off to get wedge to do it through mhd. The Litchfield map was just dangerous. On a WOT run it was knocking/Detling so much the ecu was pulling 8deg of ignition timi...

Re: Git-r's road/track progress M135i

Just on the brake fluid point. Just because a brake fluid is rated as DOT 5.1 does NOT make it a good fluid, and especially does not make it a god fluid for on track. FWIW most race fluids with high boiling points are DOT 4.... which fluid did you use as I am struggling to find a BMW fluid that is ...

Re: Git-r's road/track progress M135i

FWIW most race fluids with high boiling points are DOT 4.... Just as an FYI there are better fluids out there, but they cost significantly more (also these are all competition fluids and all DOT4) Endless RF650 323 C 218 C (£40 per 0.5l bottle) Motul RBF600 312 C 216 C (£15 per 0.5l bottle) Motul R...

Re: Bungles 135i

Unfortunately other things have been getting in the way of playing with the BMW lately (fences blowing over, Clio blew its engine etc) but parts have been steadily arriving. The BMS dual cone intakes and the COBB came off and have been sold. In their place I will be using MHD and the ramair filters ...

Silicone inlets

Hi guys, Apologies if this has been asked before, I tried searching but 'inlet' brings up so many hits its hard to sort the wheat from the chaff. Where's best in the UK to get higher flowing inlets for 135i? I'm still on stock ones with stage 2 Turbos so these NEED replacing.... I'm hoping that and ...

Re: moving from cobb to mhd

as annoying as that is - it makes sense. People stateside have managed to copy from accesstuner to tuner pro and then to MHD, takes a bit of work but seems possible with all the software available. My map is by Litchfield (previous owner) and I cant imagine they would be very helpful in transferring...

Re: Bungles 135i

Had a day out in the car yesterday so figured I'd get a daytime and non blurry shot of the car lol Personally I am not a fan of the carbon bonnet, but like the weight loss it provides, so I am booked in with the local wrapper to get it wrapped the same colour as the body 20180213_122558.jpg The aim ...

Re: moving from cobb to mhd

Oh..

I thought the cobb could be removed from the car and factory reset to be able to be used on another car, is part of that process reverting back to stock map? Sucks if so and will just have to stay until mhd remap then

Re: moving from cobb to mhd

my current map is already flashed to the car so I assume there is no danger in selling the COBB on now - once I've tested the MHD cables lol

Re: moving from cobb to mhd

Yeah I am hopefully pushing things further in the future and the guy I'd use for the mapping is looking to go down the MHD route.

I love the accessport in the car as a gauge cluster but mhd maps have more potential, imo, than COBB :)

moving from cobb to mhd

Hi all,

Iam trying to move from Cobb to MHD but accesstuner is no longer available from COBB without paying $150 for a tuning course first.

Anyone have accesstuner and fancy copying my map into tunerpro or converting to MHD?

Thanks!
