Default WOLFN8TR'S SMG M3 Thread!

Got the TTFS SMG Software! What a difference! This is the way the SMG should of left the factory.

Smoother shifts on lower gears.

You will receive our USB to OBD2 programming cable. The end user will need a Windows or Mac laptop to remote program the SMG software. The software has many more benefits to help the weekend warrior or the all around car guy. It allows you to clear DME adaptations, read and clear codes specific to your BMW, and data log your car. This is a nice perk for anyone looking to take advantage of remote tuning their car in the future, data extraction for track use, or all you data fanatics to record, replay, and compare.

Default WOLFN8TR'S SMG M3 Thread!

Got my front windshield tinted with 50% with a 30% glare strip. Love the entire windshield tinted, but I need to go darker on the side windows beings the car came with 30%. I like 15% all the way around.



BMW Nav Software Update 4-1/50.
Thanks to Charlie (CakM3)!










Monochrome ///M Badges.










Got my personalized plates!




The Inspection II Kit from ECSTuning.


*Castrol TWS Motorsports Engine Oil - 6 Quarts
*OEM Oil Drain Plug With Crush Washer
*Oil Filter Kit
*Interior Air Filter (Cabin Filter)
*Air Filter
*Fuel Filter
*NGK Spark Plugs-Set Of 6
*Pentosin MTF2 transmission fluid
*Genuine BMW FM booster rear diffferential fluid
*Genuine BMW Drain/Fill plugs
*Pentosin brake fluid - 1 liter

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I had this noise when turning slow during acceleration, it sounded like the tires were rubbing the fenders. I ordered the specially formulated differential oil, BMW part number 83 22 2 282 583. The kit from ECSTuning was $150 for three bottles and two drain plugs! Went to an empty parking lot and started doing circles in both directions as stated. At first the noise was still there but slowly went away as I did circles in the lot. After 15 or so it was completely gone!

Also changed the Transmission Oil, Power Steering Fluid, Fuel Filter and Cabin Air Filter. The car starts a lot easier and runs strong with the new fuel filter.


This Service Information bulletin supersedes SI B33 01 02 dated February 2008

SUBJECT

Grinding Noise from the Differential during Slow Cornering

SITUATION

A grinding noise may be heard coming from the differential during slow cornering.

This noise is best heard during tight cornering situations.

For example : while parallel parking, driving in a tight circle, etc.

CORRECTION

If a complaint is verified as described above on the E46 M3; E60 M5; E63 and E64 M6; or on the E90, E92 and E93 M3 vehicles, the differential oil should be replaced with a specially formulated differential oil,

BMW part number 83 22 2 282 583.

With the vehicle at operating temperature

Drive in tight circles (20 circles in each direction), allowing the special oil to coat the locking clutch discs.

The grinding noise will decrease when the locking clutch discs are sufficiently coated. Some slight noises may still be heard after driving in tight circles. Its necessary to drive the vehicle up to 600 miles before all noises are eliminated as stated by the manufacturer.

Note: Vehicles that have had the differential oil converted to this special oil should continue to use this oil whenever a service requiring the differential oil replacement is indicated.

Inexpensive Valve Shims Sourced - WiseCo VSK4

http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=467647

I know, the title seems misleading, I mean after all, they're < $4 each, right? Why bother? As self-titled keeper of the motorsport enthusiast M3 trust, I feel compelled to make as many changes to status quo as possible when it comes to protecting the financial interests of m3forum members.

So sometimes it only makes sense to buy shims individually if you have a dealer in close proximity, and only if that dealer sells them to you at a reasonable price, or only if you get them in on another order. In most other cases.... you'll want to read on.

I and another friend and forum member, after doing his valve adjustment, got frustrated with the status quo for what was $440 for a full set of shims so that we could just keep them on-hand while doing our own, and others', valve adjustments. His car was going to be down for a few weeks anyway, so we figured it wasn't a big deal to simply order the shims we needed and move on with life. It would have been nice to have an assortment of shims to choose from, but the money for a full shim kit was better spent on track time. (it always is)

As we all know, the stereotypical fleecing that's imparted upon us by BMW (amongst others) drives us to seek alternate solutions without compromise to performance or quality. As such, I'm here to post a review on the WiseCo VSK4 valve shim kit. This kit contains quantity 3 each of 8.85mm shims from 1.72mm to 2.60mm in 0.04mm increments. The OEM BMW kit contains the same shims from 1.72mm to 2.60mm in 0.04mm increments, but has 6 of each of those 23 different shims.

The difference? The VSK4 is about $38 + shipping, so a full replacement set to match the BMW kit would be just over $75 + shipping. That's a whopping difference of $364.

Skeptical as we were, we ordered a set anyway. After all, this is WiseCo, not some cheap knock-off (see RacerPro, ugh).
