Keep us updated how you get on with it, thinking about pulling the trigger on one of these myself.

Arrived very quickly (Within 14 hours I think it was) fairly easy install apart from the connectors being a bit fiddly until you get the knack, fitted it as is, i.e. on the middle map and it gives a very noticeable extra kick, no EML lights or other ago so far, just feels factory but more so.

I seems well made, instructions were good, fair play to BlueSpark, it seems very good value for what you get and they seem to do the customer service thing well based on Edds posts on here.

I know we get blase but it is seriously rapid now, was quick ish before, not sure I want more, well, not yet.

Anyone hazard a guess to what power/torque an otherwise standard M135i LCI would have on the various settings in the BlueSpark ?

I am on the middle one, sort of 340/350 bhp ?

What should be my next move, engine wise ? Bluespark has proved to be great so far, what should I look at next.

To be honest, dont really think it needs to be faster but cant help myself looking, am guessing it must be about 360 bhp with the Bluespark, downpipe next ?

Do I need to change the Bluespark before doing anything else I guess is what I am asking, will it work ok with a DP ?

Every engine can be different with power from the bluespark, are you still on the middle setting ? If you have been for a good few thousand miles, then knock it up one, that’s the way I did it.

Can’t we any reason why it wouldn’t work with a DP but it won’t clear any CEL like a JB4 will.

I’ve just upgraded from my bluespark to a JB4 for future plans of meth injection for power gains.

BS + DP is fine although you will need some additional ODB reader gadget/app, should CEL come on, to read/delete CEL-related codes

I went up to the top map and left it at that ages ago, its been great and the car seems happy enough.

Is the JB4 much different to the BS other than the configuration aspect ?

And what DP is worth buying, anyone near Manchester sell/fit them ?
