ianf, more than happy to code your car mate. Really sorry I got caught up and got to advan a little late on Sat, was really looking forward to seeing your car and put a face to a screen name!
The N54 pipes have some bad bends in them, rather get N55/aftermarket pipes. The advantage of MadDad's are they are a slightly larger diameter than the N55's

Cool, when you back from Melbourne? I will PM you a list of coding requests

I must've missed your delivery thread Ian- congrats on the new car! Seems not that long ago you were only deliberating about selling your 135! I'm sure the wait was worth it!

Oh, and yes, folding mirrors does get the ladies' attention bwahaha! Props to Luster

Cool, plenty cops that way too. Enough photo shoots, should organize a drive in a few weekends time perhaps.

The car continues to amaze me with its sublime handling & performance.... simply breathtaking... my pulse rate certainly escalates big time

I was a doubter before, but converted. Not what you'd call cheap though!

When you open the box and see how high quality the product is and the fact that OEM materials were used (which also push up the price) you will see the value in it. I don't think any improvements can be made to the quality.

Plus you can't put a price on the values it measures, maybe a whole engine replacement in an extreme scenario

I reinstalled my charge pipe the other day, started up the car and noticed straight away the there was a massive boost leak somewhere - according to my P3 gauge. Popped the hood and realised I forgot to reconnect my boost vacuum line! Simple mistake but huge consequences, especially if I didn't pick up on it for a while.

This gauge has saved me from my own foolish mistakes many times, I'm glad I have it.

BMW Electronic PW is too $$ and looks aftermarket and clumsy. Lights up like an Xmas tree. Also heard that the Alcantara does wear well.

Yeah I like alcantara and the BMW Performance Steering Wheel but I would get the non electric one as those light are too much!

My electronic wheel (version 1), only lights up like a xmas tree at startup or when I'm nearing redline. Alcantara still looks like new too. "Clumsy" matches the way I drive.
