Nieue,

Is your remap now installed? I was told that tuners were still struggling to crack the 1M's ECU, although I know some places in the USA have done it, I wasn't sure if anyone in the UK had managed it apart from DMS Automotive.

What sort of power are you expecting and what sort of torque?

No Not yet - it's been done when the car has been finished at supersprint - it will take about 2 weeks for them to finish the first exhaust been I'm testing it at the nurburg 9th and 10th July then it'll go in. Not sure they reckon about 420hp

Thanks. I assume you don't have any problems with your warranty at BMW? I'd love to remap mine after a few months of ownership, but I don't want to screw my warranty if I can help it.

Awesome!!! Hope to see you there. I plan on going on the 10th with some friends barring any last minute issues.

Beautiful setup.

Very nice! I see the clubsports have the new adjusters - just what was missing previously!
Is there any kind on knocking / bumping noise at low speeds on harsh surfaces? On my 135i I had this with KW CS (due to the racing top mounts) and it was the only negative thing I had to say about them. It is also the only thing that makes me hesitate about getting them on my 1M when it arrives...

It just didn't feel flat through the corners, when transferring weight from corner to corner it just didn't feel planted. Since the KW's have been fitted it transformed the car massively, the real test will be on the ring 9th/10th July when I go back to collect the car from Supersprint. The ride was great no crashing and no knocking at all. Can't recommend them enough. I'm at UK circuits a fair bit you're more than welcome to meet up and see what you think.

I am glad they changed the adjustors for bump on the shock. My CS on my M3 is super annoying to adjust with that pin method. Any word as to when KW is planning on actually releasing the kit? Part Number?

Any word from supersprint when they plan to have production pieces available?

Damn I wish I lived on the other side of the pond.

Hi I think the kit is available - I'll post the kit number up. I think again as soon as my version is done the full kit will be available from Supersprint
