I sent an email weeks ago. No response.

The product is great. I work with two guys running it on 335i's.

their response time is setting a bad precedent should customer service issues arise in the future

Just call them. He forwards calls to his cell, so they're available. Not everyone has time to surf all the BMW forums.

I hope this is not reflective on the kind of post-sales support customers get...

Can any satisfied customers here vouch for their customer service?

I can vouch for the fact that I have emailed several times for info about the rumored to be upcoming Version 2 and they don't respond.

Last I heard about the SSTT V2 is that it's an add on to the V1 and they're having some issues with under hood temps they're still working on.

Ok, has anyone actually attempted the SSTT install on their 135i yet? I got the aero-cover off the bottom of the car and had to search around quite a bit for the TMAP plug...

and I found it...

and it's WAY up in the driver's side of the engine compartment, about 10-12" past where I can get my hand because the steering linkage is in the way. Altitude-wise, it's about the same height as the top of the wheel, so it's definitely not sitting there in your face when you're under the car.

I laid there staring up at it, trying every which way to shove my hand/fingers up in there from every possible access point, and I don't see any way to make it work.

The TT came packed with 335i installation instructions, which are useless to us of course. I referred to Jeff's post in trying the installation from the bottom, but I don't have a clue how to get at it without some dextrous tongs or a pygmy.

People have posted that you can remove the air box to get to it. THanks for posting that it's not right in your face. I was wondering how that could be since it's way up high on the E9x.

Do you have a link to where people are talking about it?

Pretty disheartening to drop the aero-cover (22 8mm screws!) and then find out that it's gonna take a minor miracle to install, since the primary reason people choose the TT is that it's easy to install & uninstall.

I'll put a call in to Eurobahn/Split Second today to see if they have any recommendations and report back any worthwhile findings.

Update: I exchanged voicemails with Jeff today regarding the 135i TT installation. He said that he did know it was a very tight fit and that the install he was aware of was done by someone with smallish hands, using a long-handled screwdriver to manipulate the clips.

Eurobahn won't have their 135i in-shop until next week, so they don't have 1st-hand instruction or tips just yet.

After seeing where the TMAP is and what needs to be done, I'm considering sending it back since it's going to be a real PITA to get in or out, defeating the point of the plug & play solution. I do want to talk to Jeff directly first though, and also see how 0002s's installs go.
