One question, does the CANBUS system work with the 1M or not?
100% yes.

Rick, how many more do we need?

Back to HS with you! Up to 18 with you included, I'm sure some people didn't post so it must be over the mark!?

As for the group buy, put your names on the e-mail list here:

No need to e-mail me anymore... I am being bombarded!

Thanks!

I'm in. Lets get this going. If they are out of stock now, sounds like it could be awhile before order fulfillment?

Does anyone know if the 1M works with the CANBUS system, then why do the instructions on the P3Cars website say that for N54 engine cars and the 1M, a boost line tap has to be installed? Isn;t all the info read from the OBD2 port?

Thanks!! I'm just a bit concerned with the installation of the gauge here in Peru.

I just got one from last group buy. Very nice touch, the only 1 thing i really dont like is the white cable so obvioully you can see the cable inside the vent as i see everyday and it bother me and for me it is a big deal. sorry to say so. It would be nice if it's black. Just a thought for this group buy and i hope they gonna change it. The other thing would be nice if it has feature for 1/4 miles to on top of 0-60
For me it look cheap

Att: i do like it but just the cable hanging out inside the vent doesnt look good. Just a thought for better cleaner product for you guys next. Dont hate me, i just being honest. It would be real nice if they can do recall and replace with the black cable though

I will take a look next time I get in the car, but I definitely can't see the cable from the driver's seat (it should be routed on the bottom left) or from standing at the driver's side door. That would drive me nuts.

Although I followed the directions here: http://www.p3cars.com/guides/135%20V...20Assembly.pdf, I seem to recall playing with the cable a bit to make sure it laid flat and did not stick up behind the gauge.

You could always wrap the few inches of the grey cable in black electrical tape (or the other black "cling" cable wrap that BMW uses on electrical cables).

N54 use the vacuum line because it's actual manifold boost and more accurate.

N55 use CANBUS.

I bought the plus version so it came with vent and already mounted. Call me a bitch but if u paid over $400 and still have to put some electrical tape to make it look better for cleaner look
I am not bitching, just a thought so the next round will be better and more clean look for your ride. Dont hate, you guys gonna thanks me if they change it.

+1 Black would be ideal as it is a little strange to see a cable in your vent. I've been able to live with it so far.

Then why is everyone in the group buy buying the CANBUS system for their 1Ms if it doesn't work? I don't get it....

With canbus, you'll be able to monitor intake air temperatures, coolant temp, ignition timing and other worthwhile parameters.

For the record, I can't see a white cable in my vent. Maybe it has something to do with being a N55 version?

Ok, sorry for asking the obvious question, but then the 1Ms use the CANBUS system to monitor those parameters but to be able to get the boost reading, we have to tap the boost line besides having the CANBUS connection, right???

Yes, it is exactly what I had to do with my N54 135i.

I just took a picture of mine (it's invisible except with the flash). Black cable. No wonder I didn't think it was very noticeable.

This is v2.1, purchased in the last Group Buy (ordered in late 2011, received in January 2012 IIRC).
