    Hi Turkish,

    The E7x should come quickly. I need a 2011 E7x N55 at the Austin shop for verification before release. If anyone knows of a 2011 X5/X6 in the Austin area, please let me know.

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Nope, N55 have their own specific AP.

    Im running the aggressive stage 1 map with a fmic and catless dp and charge pipe. So far the boost target is 13.5 but it never reaches past 12.5 as my peak spike in boost. The car really pulls hard and smooth all the way in my xdrive e90.

    Sometimes its not always about how much boost you run. I would rather boost be kept lower and still drive way better than stock. I hate reverse on the N55 6MT...its like bmw purposely deaded throttle response to keep you from smashing something in reverse...ive been driving stick for 16 years and i always manage to stall an N55 CAR...

    Im not really complaining, was just mentioning the boost levels because of the question earlier in this thread. I'm very happy with the stage 1 tune but ill def need more to keep me happy. I switched from having a sweet setup with my Procede v5 rev3.0 with full trunk mount setup and custom tuning where I pushed 18psi and a +4 deg ignition advance that is total around 14deg.

    i just wanted to try out a flash vs piggy and so far it's much better for my 6AT xdrive car and the god awful customer service from Vishnu made it easier for me to switch.

    Exclamation Early N55 DME warning!

    Here it is if you have the early DME. No failure in field seen yet, but best to have BMW update your DME before first upload.

    Hey guys, I wanted to give everyone a head's up. During testing of an older rom this week, we've found an issue with some of BMW's DME code. This code can cause a serious issue while flashing and could possibly leave the car inoperable. The team and myself worked very hard to find this issue, it's root cause, and create a solution for everyone. I put the finishing touches on some new firmware this evening and we'll run it through final testing next week.
    Because, of this issue, please do NOT flash your vehicle at his time if you have a 9780B or 96A0B rom.

    There are only a few of you with these roms (they are a very early revision) and most if not all should have received an email from us regarding the issue. I just wanted to post here as well to make sure everyone knows. We haven't seen a failure in the field, but we want to make sure that this is not an issue for anyone.

    If you do have one of the bad roms, we will let you know when the fw fix is released and you will then be able to safely uninstall your AP. At the point, you'll just need to go to your dealer and get your DME updated to a later rom revision that does not have the bug. Once this is done, you can install the Accessport to enjoy your added power again!

    In the future we will not support any 96A0B or 9780B roms as the code is too volatile. These roms have been updated by BMW for a reason and the new roms seem to be a much better running tune as well (even stock).

    As always, you can contact us about any questions you might have by replying to this email, emailing support@cobbtuning.com, or calling us at 866-922-3059. We appreciate your patience and understanding with this issue.

    Also, feel free to PM or email me directly if you have any questions or concerns.
    josh.dankel@cobbtuning.com

    -Josh

    if you have a bad ROM that cobb doesn't support, you can head over to BMW and get it updated. Just say there is a SIB #120912

    Sears sells several and ships quickly. You will need an E14 reverse Torx socket to remove the center bolt on the firewall.

    I now need an LSD.

    Brave new world.

    Yup thanks, i bought a whole nice torx kit that included that E14 and even bigger sizes... Thought it would be best to get a nice kit for this car since a lot of work needs some kind of torx bolt Click here to enlarge
