So am I correct in saying that the differences in software are down to the gearbox mapping for DCT? Being a manual owner Differences are none? Must admit comparing to my M140i the 140 feels quicker but the M2 feels way more raw and feelsome.

I’m DCT, with 200cell downpipe, MPE, hi flow aluminuim charge pipes, pure turbos inlet pipe, ITG filter and Wagner IC. Car is still as loud as it used to be but it behaves differently on the way up to its max volume. I checked on the way home tonight and I can still make it backfire in 2nd on demand so at least they haven’t taken that away from me.
Bish,

We need a meet as I have most of the goodies bought to put on mine - esp curious to hear DP + MPE in the flesh and obvs get a ride in yr MP Coiled car !!!

I think its a little bit smoother/quicker getting onto the power but then I had the software and MPCs done at the same time so it's hard to seperate the two.

Bush with all those engine mods I'm not surprised you're used to fireworks!

Just got an email from Rybrook cancelling my order.

Called up and it seems that they are reneging on their own deal.

Bish got lucky, myself and perhaps Yao too get pushed out in the cold by Rybrook. Massively unhappy about this and woeful performance by Rybrook.

Hi Terry - plan B is OE MP coils at my local Bmw dealer - got a deal albeit not quite as sweet as Rybrook BF deal.

Plan C - either Billy B16 or KW v3 installed at a BMW specialist.

Started off on 1...being softest. Havnt gone through the range but will definately crank it up on track. For now I have settled on 7 at the rear and 6 on the front, turn in and cornering feel way tighter I am so excited to really push the car more. Find myself driving in sport plus and not even phased as the rear end feels way more tied down. Trying to be subjective as possible and went for many hours driving before hand on the springs to try and remember the differences between the two. Can feel some great drives ahead
