Re: xHP Remap

I had it on mine. Can’t say I thought it was worth the money. Went straight to stage 3. What's your thoughts on the torque limit issue Nisfan? Some people suggest that even a stage 1 OTS map requires XHP as otherwise the TCU limits torque to 500nm. Yet on the other hand, plenty of people seem to ge...

Re: What tyre set up

Without hijacking this thread too much, how do the Goodyear’s compare to MPS4? I’m looking to replace my summer set up of 245/255 tyres in the coming months. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_utfLrFaOM I changed to Eagle F1 Assymetric 5's last year and whilst the differences are marginal I much pre...

Re: Car jumped harshly after accelerating

This is surprisingly common on the M Lites, it feels like throttle lag which many people are experiencing (there was a recent thread on it). I had this issue on my M240 prior to my xHp Stage 3 trans map.

Re: Bimmercode adaptor

Recently bought a V-gate Bluetooth OBD adaptor and had planned to pair it with the Bimmercode app. Sadly it seems that Bimmercode have for whatever reason stopped affiliating/recommending the Vgate hardware to be used with their app, so I’m getting an incompatibility message when trying to pair.

Re: Throttle Delay?

Mine is the same. Improved after I remapped with XHP, but still there. Overtime you adjust to using the throttle differently and the issue disappears. One thing to bear in mind is that the pedal is hinged from the bottom, so this can give the impression that you've pressed it less than you actually...

Re: Throttle Delay?

I had the same feelings when I bought my M240 and opted for the xHp gearbox map and can confirm it's night and day a noticeable difference on the lag you're referring to on top of all of the other benefits.

Re: 6.5" Tomy to 6.5" Business Nav screen - Failure!

I think pre-LCI cars run NBT and post-LCI run NBT EVO. The EVO screens don't work on NBT. I've got a 2014 so I'm on the lookout for a nice 8.8" I can upgrade to. Like you I can't stand the thick grey plastic surround. I've got a 17 plate M240 and I have the NBT EVO unit, I think the 17 plate o...

Re: M240i drivetrain fault

I had a similar fault last year when changing to sport mode, it turned out to be the vertical headlight aim sensor that's twinned (can't remember) with another sensor related to ride height etc. Whenever I changed the mode I got the error. Got under the car and somehow my vertical aim sensor bracket...

Re: Bootmod3 WiFi adaptor... Issue connecting [emoji21]

I've recently encountered a similar issue using a raspberry pi as a wifi agent. No matter what I try it just wouldn't connect to the car!.

Thinking now it could be an issue with their firmware update.

Re: Bootmod3 Wifi Agent Issues

Have you tried a cable to see if the fault is with your WIFI agent ? I always use cable and my MacBook Air. I have only ever logged with my phone and it’s always worked but also using a cable. I did use enet/macbook after I realised I'd need to update the firmware on the WIFI agent and that worked ...

Bootmod3 Wifi Agent Issues

Evening all! It'd been an absolute age since i'd used my BM3 wifi agent. Realised the firmware needed updating so did all of that. Problem.... I now can't get my phone to connect to the BM3_NET wifi network to the stage that the connection is recognised between the app & the car. Has anyone come...

Re: Apple CarPlay

I have ordered Apple CarPlay from Defined Coding. I came across them as another M140i owner had them code in Apple CarPlay into his car (see attached YouTube video). You can’t install via USB after a certain software version, so I need to go down the install via lead & laptop route. I spoke to ...

Re: xHP on M135i LCI 2 worth it.

I've gone BM3 stage 2 with xHP gearbox flash by Defined Coding. It's miles better, especially in the likes of comfort where my MPG has increased a fair bit.

It's instantly noticeable once flashed and really helps unlock the full potential of something like a stage 2 tune.
