Congrats Quang! Amazing photos! I've bought all our Bimmers of Frankie Goh too, since the late 90s lol!

Looking forward to watching your car evolve- I'll keep an eye out for your car around the North Shore

Snow hang out with a few 1Ms. It was a gloomy day but the atmosphere was on the high.

Updates

I got myself a Cobb AP 2 weeks ago.

My main reasons for choosing Cobb are the ease of use, portability and able to maintain M button functionality. And it's good to have someone like Peter at Advan who has plenty of knowledge and able to do custom tune with Cobb down the track.

I started with the stage 1 sport map and didn't really feel much changes but when I loaded up stage 1 Aggressive stock throttle map, I am loving it. Better low end torque and throttle response and the M button still work.

Here's the throttle map of linear throttle vs stock throttle. Photos are from Cobb tuning.

Ian, that's a whole new language to me. What are deltas?

It has arrived

It has arrived! It might just be the very first one in Australia.

Why did I choose this? Primarily because it's a Cobb tuning product (to match my Cobb tuned maps), great customer service (answer all my questions promptly and quick delivery). Secondarily, because it has all the features I want: efficient bar and plate design, 60% greater core volume, stepped design to increase frontal surface area, cast aluminium end tanks, easy Installation with no modification required.

It should be a nice match for the Cobb Stage 1+ FMIC Aggressive ST map.

Off to Advan shortly.

Are there any differences between the Cobb FMIC and the Helix FMIC? From the pictures it looks pretty much the same?

Hi Zen, I don't think there is anything different. The Cobb FMIC does look the same as Helix and Wagner with the stepped design. I was looking at getting Helix but I am still waiting for their reply to my email so go figure why I haven't bought Helix.

Hah, fair enough. Well I hope you will enjoy your new FMIC, hopefully a mini review once you have it install.

FMIC installed today.

Pete @ Advan Performance centre was very kind to install the new Cobb FMIC for me today with short notice. His team did a great job installing it. We did trim a small strip off the shroud and it took less than an hour to complete.

We were very impressed with the quality and the finish of the Cobb FMIC.

For a bit of fun, take a look: installation of a FMIC in one minute!

Thanks Ian for the youtube embedding.

It has been raining all day in Sydney and I wouldn't dare giving it full bean yet. So performance wise, nothing is noticeable.The only observation so far is the AIT, my P3 gauge is telling me the temp is lower than before in normal suburban driving by about 5 degrees. The outside air temp was around 18 degrees today and it was running about mid 40 degrees before installation and it has been in the high 30 after installation, most driving was in moderate traffic today.

I am planning to do another 2000kms then go back for an intermediate oil change at 7000kms, on the same day I will hop it on the dyno.
