I've just fitted my Bluespark today and apart from being a bugger to get the existing connector clips off, it was really easy to fit and the performance is incredible.

Third gear was a little lumpy at first but smoothed out quickly and the car was trying hard to break traction in 3rd and 4th.

Looking forward to seeing how it needs in as I understand the get better after a few drives.

So I'm 24 hours in with the Bluespark and the added performance is very impressive, the only thing is the steering now feels very light in Comfort and only a little heavier in Sport.

I don't mean when accelerating either as that would be understandable it just seems very light even at slow speeds. Would the Bluespark have done anything to the steering?

Nope. All it does is affect boost psi.

Fitted mine Friday, couple of days in C and I'm impressed. Knocked it up to D to see what that is like - strangely looking forward to the drive to work tomorrow Image

Hello all,

I also installed my BlueSpark today. Running map c, its a little lumpy or what you call it, not as instant when you floor it at 3000rpm as it was stock! I hope that this little issue will disappear after a few miles? Days?

I've had mine on C for a while and recently changed to D but haven't driven the car much.

What changes with each setting increase?
Effectively changes the boost, increasing it as you go up.

Contact Bluespark - you'll need to send it back if an update it required. Best contact them and they will help you with your issue one way or another.

Hi guys,

I been driving my M140i in map C, 621miles/1000km for a ”run in period”, its still lumpy, not smooth at all. Its 2 seconds faster from 100km/h to 200, so the box is working. But it feels very lumpy.

What to do?

We have a very nice racing event this weekend, on a airstrip, its head2head. I will race my lumpy M140i there and after I will try to send it back for a firmware update ”a spoof problem”...

I love the quick answers from Edd, so I want BlueSpark to work on my car.

Like I said, I will give bluespark another try after this weekend.

Best Regards
//Arthur

Does this mean there is a firmware update for the B58 Bluespark? My box was purchased in Jan and I do still have the hesitation when using the full rev range in second and third then changing up.

If your car is behaving like mine was. I wouldn't run it full throttle for prolonged periods.

Hi all,

It´s like many many hesitations when using the full rev range in second, third, fourth before changing up. It´s on all gears from 3000RPM to 7000RPM, when you hammer it. Im in the D setting now but it´s realy the same feeling in all gears. :cry:

Is that the same problem you had Mr Spoof? :(
