All dealerships are not the same, just telling you what I've been told.
And the bushings aren't my only mod...

So every mod you have right now... you would take off if something was to go wrong with the car? Emergency style?

If not, then you need to get over your fear of going to the dealership for installations of BMW original parts. If so, then you need to stop modding and wait till your warranty is up.

If there were an issue that wasn't related to my mods I might remove 1 or 2 before taking it in. I'm not worried about breaking stuff, I understand "pay to play" after all, I'm worried about not being covered for stuff I didn't break.

That said I'm going to call them if I can't find another shop to do the install soon.

Always worth a try man. There are tons of tuners shops all over Germany, I can think of 5 or 6 here in the area off the top of my head. If you came to Stuttgart you could guaranteed get Schropp or Speed Concepts to do it for the right price, my only thing is, if you are paying to have it done, might as well pay the best people possible.... the dealership.

I would call them first, maybe have a German speaking friend with you, and see if you could explain that it's a BMW part, just a simple suspension upgrade, and see what they say. Worst thing they can say, is no.

I hit up Schropp and was told they only tune older BMWs. I guess he is busy enough with muscle cars?

Nice set up though.

They are egotistical pricks over there to be honest. Yeah they do good mustang and bmw work, but it clearly goes to their head. I think the guys at Speed Concept do just as good of work with an 1/8 of the work space. Also, their attitude and customer service are unbeatable.

I am still in the hunt for a 3 stage DISA swap, can they activate the DISAs in an N52?

3 stage intake manifold or a varible length intake manifold.

Remember resonance from highschool physics? Yes...especially motorheads should have paid closer attention in physics not just chemistry

the 2 stage system is found on most 128s & 328s, except those produced to meet CARB SULEV standards. Those cars come with a 3 stage manifold.

http://www.atlanticmotorcar.com/case...nner-workings/


BMW's DISA (Differentiated Intake System Air) system was first introduced to the N52 V8 engines on 7-Series in 2001. It is the world's first continuously variable length intake manifold.

The principle is simple. The intake manifold of each cylinder is arranged in circular shape and half-recessed into the V-valley. The inner wall is actually a rotor, on which the air inlet is located. When the rotor swivels, the position of the air inlet moves in relation to the outer housing of manifold. This varies the effective length of the intake manifold, from a maximum 673 mm to 231 mm.

Below 3500 rpm, the DISA uses the maximum manifold length to optimize low-end torque. Beyond 3500 rpm, the length is reduced gradually according to rev, keeping the supercharging effect at optimum level.

As the DISA requires a circular construction, it occupies more space (especially height) than other VLIM systems. This prevent it from becoming popular. Even BMW itself was not keen on the technology. When the 4.4-liter V8 was enlarged to 4.8 liters, its extra torque allowed BMW to abandon the DISA for a simpler 2-stage VLIM system. The next generation V8 even switched to turbocharging, so DISA has no hope to return. Today, it remains to be the only continuous variable intake manifold ever made to production.

Elsabor does professional parts installation, he will do your subframe bushing for the low cost of 100 bucks!

And don't tell people I'm an MP.... I hate MP's.
