    Original Redline. Need advice on how to update firmware

    If you have an escort live cord you can update the firmware that way or at least you could at one time.

    Redline OG Users

    I still occasionally run my redline in my truck, as soon as the r7 arrives it will be on permanent bike duty. When running on backroads with little to no traffic it’s still a great detector. Auto with tsr on it doesn’t get too many more bsm falses than my r3, a few more but not much. the problem...

    Anyone have experience with bms stage 1 or jb4?

    I thought it might have had something to do with unhooking the battery. Thanks for the confirmation. I drove it probably 100 miles today and it seems to be all good and like a totally different car as well [emoji2]

    Anyone have experience with bms stage 1 or jb4?

    Well I threw in a new set of plugs and a new air filter and took the car out and warmed it up. I came back home, I disconnected the battery and did the install. About 100 yards down the road it threw an error that said chassis stabilization drive moderately. The error went away about a...

    Anyone have experience with bms stage 1 or jb4?

    Thanks for the input and good points. I’ll go ahead and grab a set of plugs and change them out before I tune it this weekend. They probably need to be done anyways.

    Anyone have experience with bms stage 1 or jb4?

    So I’ve got the bms stage 1 and plan to install it this weekend. Replying to some of the comments above. I’m told that the n20 that is in the 320i is higher compression with less headroom for extra boost than the variant that is in the 328i. Long story short, I think there is enough headroom for...

    Anyone have experience with bms stage 1 or jb4?

    Curious if anyone has any experience with the bms stage 1 or jb4 tuners? Particularly on a 2.0l bmw 328i. I’ve had plenty of tuners on gas trucks and turbo diesel trucks but this will be the first turbo gas 4cyl I’ve tuned. I’m just making sure that there is minimal risk and if people generally...

    2013 328i f30 passenger floorboard wet

    I think I may have found the issue. The previous owner told me that he had a faulty window regulator replaced. I pulled the panel off of that door and found this.......the foam vapor/sound barrier duct taped on instead of re sealed. It was clearly wet around the edges of the inside of the door...

    2013 328i f30 passenger floorboard wet

    So after a heavy rain I’ve noticed my windows fogging up and the passenger floorboards are wet, front and rear. Is there a common culprit that I should be looking for as the cause?

    need advice from BMW owners

    So I am looking to replace the Maxima with a used 2013-2014 BMW 328I (F30 / 2.0L turbo) I have a few lined up to look at. I was leaning towards a 2013 RWD sport model but found a very good deal on 2013 luxury line x drive with very low miles. My questions are........1. am I really going to...
