Re: M-track Retrofit: Success

Is there any way to have the interface input (just the DSC controls m-track and DSC off) on a regular ZCP? I retrofitted the normal steering wheel controls (for volume etc) and need a new m-track...

Re: Any body running the borla v2 midpipe

I had the v2, I'm 100% sure and it still lost retarded amounts of tq. As soon as OEM exhaust was put back on there was a big difference.

Re: bmw factory alarm

Definitely DIY, just plugs in. Super easy! I don't have the PN but if you still can't find it let me know I'll look on mine. :)

Cheers!

Re: Going back to a stock exhaust, has anyone else

Been back to stock here for months as well and enjoy it better as a DD, but when I'm having fun I do miss my "crazy le mans car" exhaust sound. Maybe electric cutout some day.....

Re: 2008 E92 M3 Brake Rotors Warping

It's likely inconsistent pad deposit buildups across the rotors surface. You'd probably be best off trying an aftermarket higher temperature brake pad.

Re: Stupid mistake-Hit curb

DSC is normally off in my car but I am accustomed to controlling the unexpected. You guys put too much faith in the system, it can only do so much. I suppose for the average driver it's a good idea...

Re: VANOS UNIT - failed for the 2nd time!

Perhaps the fact you baby the vehicle is the issue. These are race derived motors...

Re: How does my car know if the "Air" is CLEAN or DIRTY?

It's called a "smog sensor", I don't know how but it's sensitive to exhaust fumes.

Re: Tire Wall Blister - do I need to replace?

In all likely hood it probably will be fine if it doesn't get any bigger, but there's always an increased change of a blowout. Your call.

Re: Aux port

I installed the OEM aux port and for whatever reason quality is not that good. It sounds like a low bitrate audio source (source is HQ, I checked) and has some hiss/pop noise only on the right side...
