    If you track your car or launch hard on the dragstrip with big power you put tremendous stress on the driveline including the driveshaft. The factory BMW E9X M3 S65 V8 driveshaft is not made out of carbon fiber and if it gives it can certainly be a dangerous situation. Driveshafts giving way on the strip is not a new topic but they can come up through the cabin especially if a driveshaft loop is not installed. Well, with the MFactory carbon fiber driveshaft not only do you get a safety benefit but you get a much stronger piece than the factory driveshaft. Here is the description from MFactory: This is a dry carbon fiber piece with 5500 newton meters of capability. That means 4056 lb-ft or in other words whatever any E9X M3 in the world can throw at it. BimmerBoost.com will putting it to the test. They are currently looking for testers which get a discount from $1499.95 retail which is a very reasonable price for what you get. Just to share personal experience, this driveshaft was ordered for the BimmerBoost project E92 M3 DCT and somehow arrived in two days. The insanely quick shipping speed was mind blowing. Here are photos of the unboxing of the driveshaft: It certainly looks and feels like a stout piece and certainly is well packaged. The real test of course will be on a car and MFactory is still looking for testers. If you want to get in at tester pricing, contact @MFactory on the forum.

    The F90 generation M5 is going to be very exciting. Why? Because BMW promises to drop weight significantly this time (we'll see about that) despite adding all wheel drive. We will be lucky if they get close to the current generation F10 M5 in weight considering the added mass from xDrive system. They intend to extensively use carbon fiber and CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) for this reason. With over 600 horsepower from a twin turbo V8, a dual clutch transmission, and all wheel drive you can expect the F90 to be a beast in a straight line. The M5 is supposed to be an all around car though and this video shows it hustling around the 'Ring. It looks like the tires are crying 'understeer' out loud at times but it looks fairly rapid and that it is being pushed hard. Maybe the limp mode issues of the past model will be addressed? Maybe it will not be out of place on a track? We'll have to wait and see.

    I am selling my un-married Cobb AccessPort for a N54 engine. It works great and is uninstalled from the car. It still has a protune on it for a FBO/IC/stg2 fuel pump car. This protune may or may not work for you, but I can leave it on there. The AP does have all the OTS maps on it as well. I am located in Syracuse NY but can ship as well $250

    Just an ECU flash and some meth to run 10's? Yep. This of course is a 4Matic model which explains the nice launch on street tires. The 60 foot is a respectable 1.761 and the torque down low certainly helps get the the heavy 4500+ pound Mercedes E63 off the line. How much torque? 726-730 lb-ft at the wheels. Again, keep in mind this car has nothing more than an ECU flash dyno tune from Precision Tuning and an AEM meth kit spraying 50/50 water-meth. If the owner wants that trap speed to go up he will need some bolt ons and might want to look into some modified turbochargers. Regardless, talk about a mean car to run into at a stoplight. <blockquote class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-version="7" style=" background:#FFF; border:0; border-radius:3px; box-shadow:0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width:658px; padding:0; width:99.375%; width:-webkit-calc(100% - 2px); width:calc(100% - 2px);"><div style="padding:8px;"> <div style=" background:#F8F8F8; line-height:0; margin-top:40px; padding:50.0% 0; text-align:center; width:100%;"> <div style=" background:url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAACwAAAAsCAMAAAApWqozAAAABGdBTUEAALGPC/xhBQAAAAFzUkdCAK7OHOkAAAAMUExURczMzPf399fX1+bm5mzY9AMAAADiSURBVDjLvZXbEsMgCES5/P8/t9FuRVCRmU73JWlzosgSIIZURCjo/ad+EQJJB4Hv8BFt+IDpQoCx1wjOSBFhh2XssxEIYn3ulI/6MNReE07UIWJEv8UEOWDS88LY97kqyTliJKKtuYBbruAyVh5wOHiXmpi5we58Ek028czwyuQdLKPG1Bkb4NnM+VeAnfHqn1k4+GPT6uGQcvu2h2OVuIf/gWUFyy8OWEpdyZSa3aVCqpVoVvzZZ2VTnn2wU8qzVjDDetO90GSy9mVLqtgYSy231MxrY6I2gGqjrTY0L8fxCxfCBbhWrsYYAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC); display:block; height:44px; margin:0 auto -44px; position:relative; top:-22px; width:44px;"></div></div><p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;"><a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BJg8QgNg05v/" style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; font-style:normal; font-weight:normal; line-height:17px; text-decoration:none;" target="_blank">A video posted by Kevin Baldi (@kevin_doesnt_lift)</a> on <time style=" font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;" datetime="2016-08-25T02:21:02+00:00">Aug 24, 2016 at 7:21pm PDT</time></p></div></blockquote> <script async defer src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js"></script>

    AndersS started a thread M-Control arms rear. in N54
    Hi I need some advice about bushings and M performance upgrades. The rear end of my car feels a little TO alive doing hard pulls/acc. Rear end is not as stable as i would like it to be, and I dont feel that the car is 100% in control. At the moment the rear bushings is still stock, but I have allready bought the Yellow Powerflex subframe bushings and the Mfactory Solid diff. Bushings. But I am not sure if that is enough to make the car more stabel during accelerations. I´ve been looking to upgrade my stock Upper Control arms rear to M-performance from ECS tuning. (I Already got the front kit mounted. ) https://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E90-335i-N54_3.0L/Suspension/M_Upgrade/ES2622633/ But is this a ”complete” upgrade.? What about the Wishbones arm next to the controlarms. (link) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/182224203710?clk_rvr_id=1082423874663&rmvSB=true Does it make sense to upgrade the control arms, and not the wishbones? And does the wishbones fit directly to the E91/E90 or must other changes be done? Not planning to take the car to trackways, and since it is my daily use I prefer not to make the car 100% a racecar but still keep some comfort if possible. :cool: Thanks Car E91 335i 2010 auto. Quife LSD KW V1 M3 front and rear Swaybar. M3 front controlarms and wishbones. Pure Stage 2 – Lpfp3 – EOS PI – 2” Inlets. And more.

    Hi all I wanted to share my experiences with Redline MT-90 fully synthetic gear oil In the 6MT ZF gearbox of the 335i. I initially read about the BMW specified ATF which is supposed to be used in these boxes, as well as the lifetime fill. I wasn’t too happy with the idea of an oil eventually breaking down on a molecular level, especially on a gearbox that’s done over 100k miles and also that it was notchy into first and not as smooth in other gears as I came to expect from BMW from having owned a couple of other cars before- e46 and e34. The MT-90 is a 75w 90 oil. That is to say, same thickness as standard when cold (75W- Winter thickness), slightly thicker when hot. After draining the old oil off (around 1300ml) it was veryblack and no doubt full of shavings from various failed gear changes over the years due to operator error. it had the usual burnt garlic smell that all gearoil I’ve come across does. I topped up the box with around 2 litres (2 quarts according to the bottles) of MT-90. Wasn’t too concerned thatit was more than was already in there especially as you American folk mentioned it taking 2 quarts. From the angle my car was, it wasn’t topped up to overflowing as is recommended. I wanted to use the car for a few months before posting togive a fair review, and I can say that the gear shifts are far more positive, not at all notchy into first like before, predictable resistance into each shift. I know Redline have another grade of gear oil –I believe some kind of ATF which is at 75w-80 which is specifically for the BMW ZF, but I’vehad no troubles running an oil which is thicker when hot. I am an advocate of changing the gear oil – on previous cars I would every 76k miles. Oil can’t possibly outlast a gearbox due to heat and compression stresses and will eventually provide less contact resistance. Do I recommend this oil? Yes.
