Hey guys... just two things coming into my mind... intercooler heat soak ? Do both of you have the stock FMIC ?

Other thing that comes to my mind is your clutch could be starting to slip. Don't forget the clutch is not rated for STOCK HP level. The trans too. lol But BMW just took a calculated risk - with warranty claims. So far so good. But time will tell. Also there were some 1M's which had bad rear crankshaft seal. They leak oil(or somethings just make a fluttering type noise on decell). Just FYI.
I have an ETS 5".

Doesn't feel like the clutch to me... And I hope I'm right haha.

Logs will tell. Do logs, with each traction mode.

Thanks Dack... My crankshaft seal seems OK and I don't think it's clutch slip or the problem would still be there in MDM mode.... but good things to check... It could be heatsoak I guess but that tune is designed for stock FMIC and I still don't see why the problem would disappear when I switch to MDM mode?

Try get a tyre in the Extreme Performance category.
Good to know. Thanks. Do you notice much of a lack of wet weather performance with extreme performance tyres? Have you tried RE-11s? I know people who swear by them but I haven't checked to see if they're available in 1M sizes...

It's really mild... I only noticed it because I just got the Cobb and I was looking for it... or anything else...

I'm running stock IC but its the next thing on the list for me... Doesn't seem like clutch to me either...

Yeah... I'm thinking that maybe it's pulling the timing or something. Only way to know is Logs. Just got no time at the moment...

I may try RE-11's next and yes they come in OE sizes for the 1M. I am happy with RS-3's, but Hankook no longer seem to make a 245/35/19, so I will be going for RE-11's or Nitto NT05's next.

The RS-3's fair ok in the wet, but then I never push the car when it is raining. Based on other's reviews, the RE-11 is a better street tyre than the RS-3 and only marginally behind the RS-3 on the track. If you don't track, then the RE-11 could be ideal.

So, big thanks to Quang for pointing me in the right direction. Couple of weeks ago I managed to pick up one of the last of these limited edition Stencil Prints originally commissioned for 1Addicts Members...

Managed to get it on sale.. There's still a few left if anyone's interested. Only VO and AW available now...

Can't insert a link because for some reason the site is blocked on here but do a search for Manual Designs if you want one...

Found the perfect frame for it too...

Thanks mate... I'd be interested in adding some of your stuff to my car if it didn't cost the GDP of a small country to ship it here...

I bought a 7000k led kit for my E91 LCI from the same ebay seller.
I didnt have too high expectations as I only paid $60 incl shipment but DAMN!!
The lights are pretty much perfect, not too bright, not too blueish and they even dim on and off! I highly recommend this kit to all BMW owners that want a cheap and good looking upgrade.

  • 1 Festoon Light and 2 Map Lights - Front
  • 1 Festoon Light and 2 Map Lights - Rear
  • 1 Glovebox Light
  • 2 Footwell Lights
  • 2 Vanity Mirror Lights
  • 1 Boot Light

14 lights. No error codes. All completely Plug and Play. Took about 1/2 an hour to install and half of that was figuring out how to get at the front lights. Cost: $70

Umm... Not so good... Fitted it to the car - with difficulty - and then about half an hour later I heard a noise from the garage. Went out to check and this is what I found:

(The mounting points and areas where it slips into the OEM rear bumper were really flimsy and after not even taking it for a drive the pressure was enough to cause the whole thing to just shatter...)

Stu was, as always, good as his word though and it didn't cost me a cent.
