@BuraQ, the ROM is really the easy part of figuring out how to flash the car. The ROM is just the data that you are manipulating. The hard part about flashing is figured out HOW to get the DME to accept the modified data...

If I were a betting man I'd bet 100% against you here. I Highly doubt BMW has let the key slip out. Extremely unlikely, if it has, then someone has really fucked up. They are most likely just looking for exploits in the rom with security this high. If the key did get out, they would probably just change the key for all cars moving forward, which is essentially all of them. "

" Small update:

Downpipes/dumptube materials, intercooler piping, v-band assemblies, and air filter showed up yesterday. Kinda took the night off last night, so no progress.




I still need to figure out something on the exhaust manifold studs. The factory ones are too short. I did notice that the intake manifold studs are the same size and thread pitch and are much longer. I'm considering ordering them to see if they would work. Assuming they work, they'd probably have to cut down some.

Any suggestions? "

The Corner Braking Control (CBC) is disabled on my 1M when I turn off fully the traction control.

Mike Benvo (bpmsport.com) coded the Continental Teves MK60E5 DSC ecm on my car so it operates like the E9x M3 so all traction control except the ABS is turned off when you hold the button down. In other words, the CBC is switchable. "

Some of my favorite moments:

[LIST] [*]I swear I can see the gas gauge on the X6M trickling down. [*]The ZR1 has insane acceleration. Wow. [*]The F1 car looked to be in the wet? That's nuts - I couldn't imagine 300km/h in the wet for both traction, but also sprayback in an open cockpit F1 car. "

" [QUOTE]I discovered the M4 during a testdrive organised by BMW ///M a few weeks ago with the whole ///M range. I drove a ZCP cabrio M6, a DCT M4 with CB and a ZCP F10 M5 on mountain roads.

So... First I would say that this is very subjective and that I certainly do not represent a majoriy

I look for a precise kind of sensations and I want to "fight" with the car.

First, I would miss my naturally aspirated V8 if I bought an M4. The sound of the new S55 engine is really a shame for BMW ///M, when the sound of the NA V8 and V10 are/were gorgeous.
And these turbo engines absolutely do not react as the S65 does.

Then I felt the M4 just too easy to drive and did not feel what happened on the front axel. The tractions is just TOO good too. Sure you're fast as hell, but do you enjoy the ride ? I do not. "

alex@ABRhouston replied to the thread Alternator Relocation.
" mmmm. that alternator looks kinda sketchy.

the upper bolt that normally goes through the oil filter housing assembly seems to not be supported the same way...... so the bolt looks to be really stressed.

lower bolt is hidden by the harmonic balancer, so i cant comment on that- but there are PLENTY of mounting bolt bungs on that side of the block.

a 318ti belt tensioner is the way to go, since it has an allen built into it to tension it. "
