The remapping I've found mentioned on line seem to be mostly plug and play boxes with vast claims of BHP and Torque which I have no interest in.

I have emailed DMS without reply.

On the shifter, often just changing the white plastic cup may improve feel so il plan that in.

I am far from council, the shift compared to a 320d Msport is laughably long.

D3-BiTurbo tuning (2011)

Yes! here we are three weeks in, and no it doesn't need anything just like a shorter shifter anybody done one? which did you use?

A few more horses would be nice too I suppose :lol:

And spacers, things are a little lost looking.....

M5 was great but drove like its age, M3 was a ten tenths car, normal driving was boring and heavy. C63 was awesome but a total licence looser which I found hard to resist.

I was looking for handling, pure handling (and maybe some lovely torque too)

I collected mine from Sytners three Saturdays ago, they stamped the book for an oil service the day before.

Once home I booked an oil service with my own supplied oil.

I don't trust or believe anything they say, any of them.

Back in an Alpina

Been a few years since I sold the E30 and there have been many and varied chariots since, but as of last Saturday I'm in a D3 BiTurbo.

Anyone have any history on number 420 ?
