I'm excited for this product.........but boy am I glad that my car is away for the winter.....way to many issues. Hopefully by spring time COBB will have all theses issues worked out and I won't have to deal with it. PLUG, PLAY & FLASH

I think it is annoying that you need to send your AP back to COBB for reprograming while all piggy back systems (like JB3 & 4) continue to work even after a software reflash.

I find it a bit annoying as well. It's gonna be about 3 weeks before I get to try my cobb ap out. 1 week to ship, got it today, had to email ecu info today, another week, car goes in for service on the 28th, most likely i'm going to have to send in another rom, another week. i should have about a week to see if im really satisfied with the product. based on the first 3 weeks of owning the cobb ap(i consider owning from the time my money is debited) i cannot recommend it to anyone. however, once i do get it running, i'm sure i won't be able to stop recommending it to others. Cobb dudes, sticker is NOT going on my car till my ap works!!

Seems like more and more ROMs are unsupported recently, I wonder why? Could it be from new dealer flashes? Either way, it's the price you gotta pay when your an early adopter for anything. What kind of taste it leaves in your mouth in the end is determined by how much s#*t you really end up going through. Sometimes it's not so bad and others you just don't want anything to do with by the end of it all. I am optimistic that these will be minor hiccups at the front then pay out as time goes on.

Thats the price you pay for flash tunes (Cobb, GIAC, Dinan). With the constant ECU/DME updates that BMW puts out it's a pita. That being said I'm looking foward to owning the AP or ATR. As far as the logs I've seen and the disscussions I've read this is gonna be an awesome DIY at home tune. Every tune had to start somewhere (remember the JB1 and the V1 which weren't PNP) and I believe this tune just needs some time to work out the kinks.

I had my 2010 135i in for service last week including the latest BMW software update, installed the AP today. I was half expecting unsupported ROM but no issues at all. For those who are waiting, trust me it's worth it!

Danny,

I was told that my dyno graphs would be uploaded to a database for viewing. Can you direct me to that site?

Also, I pulled off the airbox lid for first time since buying the car to have a look at the stock filter. It is in terrible shape. I do believe with a clean and high flowing filter my gains would have been better.

If thats with EVERYTHING else stock, you could slap in a clean aftermarket slide in filter and gain about another 10whp for sure, a dirty filter, specially a stock one can indeed draw a few noticeable hp away.

If I was gonna run with a sweet tune like this with raised boost, I would def invest in an aftermarket FMIC, chargepipe/bov and DCI in that order. You will def see great benefit from all those with such a tune, and even more probably after COBB releases their mod specific stage 2 maps.

Nice Dyno gains! HUGE over stock , I am just curious will we even be able to get traction?? Big gains, or do we all need to get Better tires for traction w/ the Big Gains?

I just got my 135i, been in the 30s but dry/clear roads and just spins 1st/2nd gear in the upper Rpms, I couldn't imagine w/ more Power the traction control would be going Crazy!!! I came from a 335Xi so traction was never an issue, hoping just since cold temps..do these hookup fine in warmer temps?

Glad to see Cobb AP! I ran the Cobb AP on prior WRX STIs, Great Product!

Thank you for sharing Dyno !!
