Pretty much any H8 / Group 49 AGM battery will be fine. They’re a little larger and heavier than the stock 94R batteries, but they fit (in non-convertible E46s)

Re: Sold the Jet Black, picked up an E90 M3. Sold the E90 M3, picked up an F80 M3.

Might also be worth coding the Euro MDM option, I hear that raises limits pretty significantly

Re: Converting an MSS54HP into an MSS54HP CSL (H-bridge)

Probably. It won't conduct as well as solder, but might be good enough. Or possibly a low melting point solder like ChipQuick would be fine for the underside.

Re: Designing an SMG Pump Relocation Kit

That link is correct, but you’re misreading it. Those are the changes made for MY2003 compared to the MY2002 models.

Re: AKG 95A RTABS + TMS Limiters problematic?

The AKG (and all poly) RTABs are physically wider - effectively they have limiters built in. If you put limiters in on top of that, they'll put a lot of stress on the RTAB pocket whenever your...

Re: HELP - OBD2/ELM327 Adapter Problems with CSL ECU

Might be related to the bug the emissions recall fixed (which the CSL never got). I do intend to try porting over the code changes to the CSL software, but that will take me some time.
