    • Misfires continue to be an issue for the Vishnu Procede even after the V5 update

      This video was sent to us anonymously. The reason for that is Shiv@Vishnu had seen the video and told the owner not to post it and the owner did not for fear of being punished, lack of support, etc. We happened to get this video which shows a V5 automatic misfiring even after the voluntary harness update and several times of cleared adaptations.

      Notice the boost on the fuel gauge which drops to around or below the stock boost level yet the car still misfires. Misfires were also reported at the recent Atco rental by V5 users and other Procede users on BimmerBoost have mentioned issues with misfires as well. This issue is being brought to your attention as tremendous effort has been expended to keep it quiet on other sites. Come to your own conclusion and we hope Vishnu can resolve it.

        Ding ding ding, winner.

        The last line of your post indicates that you think there is "something missing" ... so do you have evidence or not?

        No evidence means your just embellishing, bullshitting etc, which IMHO is just as bad as over moderation.
        We do not know exactly what he was told as he won't say. All he wants is for this to disappear.

        As I stated, does he have evidence that he was not told to not put this up? His actions correlate with what I am saying, not with what he is saying. Why else is he scared?

        There is no embellishing of any kind, he has stated several times he feels if this stays up a bridge will be burnt. Obviously something would have had to be said for him to feel that way, right? Or did he just make it up out of the blue? Why would he just fear Shiv for no reason then? Something was said and I believe my source to be accurate based on his demands and responses.

        You are scared of Shiv, why? You want this deleted, why? Because Shiv didn't tell you anything about not posting it? BS, you are scared because you know you were warned. Man up and admit it, we won't abandon you, we will protect you. Stop being a little whining $#@! and stand up for what is right. Grow some balls.

        No one denied you asked for the video to be deleted, it just isn't going to happen. That's right, this site won't delete posts to favor vendors, thank God someone has some respect for the community and hasn't sold out.

        LOL ok. Keep imagining things. You are posting more nonsense since the owner of the video has spoken out to create a drama-like sequence.

        I suppose you don't understand the concept of not burning bridges, there is nothing to be scared of. And if Shiv ever did stop providing support because I sent the video out to Terry@BMS or LostMarine, then he'd be hearing it on e90post from me. He's been nothing but helpful with the issue, had e-mails exchanged, phone calls made, advice given, all done very professionally.

        The point here is you are posting my personal video for your gain, that I am about, oh, 100% certain LostMarine sent to you since he's been asking me for days if he could post it. The key giveaway was his quick response to anything anti-Vishnu. No worries though. Others will see what kind of a site this really is with your replies to the board member in question (me).

        BTW, at this rate, you and I will be the only ones responding to each other and within 5 more pages of this stuff, I'll be banned!

        Why send out the vid if it was never meant to get out to the public? Somethings you just keep to yourself.

        You are creating drama all by yourself. You want this deleted yet you have just made this an issue that everyone is now going to read essentially shooting yourself in the foot, bravo.

        So why are you burning a bridge again and why are you so desperately trying to get this deleted? All of a sudden now there is nothing to be scared of? Huh?

        I have no idea who sent it. All I know is there is more than one of these on youtube and anyone could have gotten it from that point. So, good luck finding out who sent it to me I guess? Why do you want this swept under the rug so badly anyway?

        Yes, I do hope people see what kind of a site this is and that we won't protect vendors or delete controversial issues. I hope that is perfectly clear. I also hope people see we won't cave in just because someone whines they aren't getting their way. Integrity and respecting the user first before vendors, that is what and who we are and hopefully always will be.

        Why would you be banned? This isn't bimmerpost. I have no desire to ban you I used to think you were a good member but now I can see you are a bit immature and not able to handle difficult situations with your emotions getting the best of you. Also, I seem to see other responses in this thread as well along with 116 users currently online the majority of which are viewing this? Come on, if you want to go down this route you should try harder.

        He doesn't understand that and he doesn't understand it is too late. Additionally, he doesn't seem to understand he could have handled this far more constructively as no one else knew it was his car. Now all he has down is cause it to snowball and it will just continue.

        Is it good to be going WOT when oil temps are still low?

        These cars don't rev super high so it isn't a huge issue but you want your oil to be warmed up.

        LostMarine sent it to you, no big deal. Stop thinking this is some big air of mystery. And BTW, I'm not protecting Vishnu, so keep on making stuff up. I haven't gotten a penny from Shiv to endorse his product or defend his tune. It's a bull$#@! issue which means it's not in my car anymore, until I hear it's confirmed fixed by the other people who misfire on the 6AT.

        As I stated numerous times, since you keep going off on a tangent, the true issue at hand here, is the fact you're using videos not intended for your viewing for personal gain which means improving on the 110 users currently on this site, compared to the 3493 on e90post. Again, as I stated numerous times, others who read this thread should get the message by now.

        -edit- I didn't know this issue was front page worthy! Great work Sticky, National Enquirer-worthy.

        No one said you got any money from Vishnu. I think what you are doing is making sure Shiv won't stop supporting you. Would Shiv threaten you with something like that? If he did, I think you should come out and say it. Explain to us all why you are so intent on believing this will burn a bridge? Shiv saw this video, right? You two must have discussed it? What did he tell you? Let's see how Vishnu customer service handles issues that don't portray them as positive. My feeling is he tried to force you into not revealing this video.

        I don't know who sent it to me but since the vid was on youtube anyone could have.

        What tangent? I'm right on point Click here to enlarge The video was not intended for my viewing? Well, some of the most important videos we get that reveal issues are ones that were not necessarily intended to get into a specific persons hands. That does not change that the video is relevant and something that needs to be brought to the attention of those in the N54 community as well as the BMW performance community.

        Yes, I know bimmerpost has more users, that's great. I realize we have a long way to go but quantity does not equal quality and I'm very happy with where we have gotten. It's easy for you to use the work of someone else with a 5 year head start to try to put where we have gotten so far down. I along with many others already feel this site has surpassed bimmerpost in quality information for the user and how it is centered around the benefit of the user. I'm sorry it doesn't meet your standards but I will continue to work toward improving it until it can meet them. I'm sure you could do better as well.

        You certainly have pushed drama to the forefront with how you have handled it. I hope more people notice and that pushes Vishnu to fix it, for your benefit, and the benefit of the entire community.

        Dont $#@!ing post a vid on YouTube as "public" and don't send it to random people next time. WTF where you thinking? No one even really knew it was your car until you said something, and others are experiencing the same problems shown and the vid and as you said, "it was discussed on E90post", so what tha $#@! are you crying about? Its not a new issue and it was already public, $#@!! 1 page of your rant was enough and your new sig is super Click here to enlarge

        Don't really think you are making sense here. How is the video not truthful? What, it is CGI?

        No one neg repping you and uh.. you have most of the rep you do from positive reps from me.

        I can help...

        On traffic I believe I passed N54tech a little while ago but obviously it isn't fair to compare as you are focused just on the N54 and are a different kind of site offering support for customers, etc.

        We cover the whole BMW performance scene so it means a larger audience by default even though we are younger. Just different types of sites with some definite overlap like right here.

        You aren't making a good point here or any for that matter. How is a vid regarding misfires somehow justification of accuracy of comments in this thread that conflict based on his actions? Uh.... what?

        People, you are missing the point. The issue at hand is that the V5 is still having problems with misfires. Forget about the rest...
