Nice. It's quite a bit different from our Bimmer.org, but a lot fancier.

Now I will frequent this Board too. :D

I like this board so much board than the .ORG, apart from the stupidity from Alan and Charlie, the s/w here is a lot better. I like it when a new reply to an old thread was posted the thread moves up the list, threads die too fast at the new .ORG software...

Hey Ayn,

Not to stir up anything..but the issue with Charlie and Alan has been going on with a while, especially when TD brought it up too. :)

Thing is, every board administrators are protecting their own interests. Even the administrators on e46fanatics censor and delete some of the postings. For pete's sake, they even deleted my postings about buying Alpina accessories from KSK. (Clem, pls don't delete this post :) )

Until now, I have yet to hear from e46 admin.

So did you receive the ECIS yet?

So far I got a set of these.

<img src="http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid28/pbf20c849c4c1edfddd6af0dd235f7507/fe0fafc9.jpg.orig.jpg">

Will install them on the E36 M3 lightweight rims after X-Mas. JIO will help out with ECIS whenever that thing arrives (UPS is too slow).

Drove his M3 SMG.... this will for sure be my next car.:D That tranny makes the M3 feel like a race car - kinda like playing GT3 with wheel/pedals. Now we have to wait until after the break-in to really open it up.:D

How about you, what are you up to recently?

Yikes! ;) Well, give me a good review when you received the ECIS. Just wished that we live near each other, so I can run some OBD data from the ECIS.

What's new with me? ;) Well, nothing much really. Just gathering geeky data whenever I have the chance on a long drive. I am sure you know about my CAI. Kaz and I ran some tests last Sunday too. Set of results which we don't want to release yet. There are just too many variables to worry about. Plus the fact that the ECU takes time to re-learn the change in air flow..etc.Anyhoo, the same debate is still whether ECIS or Dinan or Jim Conforti, all CAIs should produce the same performance output, give and take a 5% difference. What I am interested in however, is air pressure/temperature flowing through using ECIS, Dinan and stock design.

Anyway, my car is itching for another AutoX event. 2 coming up in Feb actually. ;)

And of course, I won't forget the floormats. ;)

You guys measure at the crank, correct? I read one of you posts on this issue before, but got confused. Are the numbers similar to the dynoes (recalculated of course)?

My guess these systems are all about the same, just like you say. The only thing I don't like about DINAN is that it's way too expensive and hangs too low to the ground. Here in OR we do get standing water from time, so I am a bit sketchy... :confused:

But this aluminum pipe that Dinan is doing now is a joke. CF is a much better design - good thing you got that one.

Yeah, I remember that, I got a catalog from KSK after seeing your post. =)

Jim in Oregon got an M3 SMG? I didn't know that. So that's why I saw him on the M3 board so much... damn!

So would u get the SMG instead of the 6spd? I'll probably get an M3 in a year or so and I'm thinking about skipping the SMG. But of course I've driven neither.

I also thought that losing the clutch pedal would somehow make the car like "Auto" boring. No way - this is a whole new level of excitement. You have to drive one to understand what I mean...

I am also planning on getting an M3 (most likely a 2003 model) and now I know it will be SMG. I just hope the reliability is good in the long run...

you know, i made the biggest mistake by choosing steptronic instead of 5sp in my 330, so in my M3, i have to be super careful about which tranny to get. I know the SMG is no step, i know all the different modes and stuff, but there is no clutch pedal... hmmm... I have time to decide tho... which is good... =)

go for it. Also, play Grand Turismo 3 with a steering wheel and pedals to get an idea. :D

I didn't even notice the absence of the clutch pedal - that's how much fun I was having. It is very different from Step. Just see how the car downshifts... Yummy.:p

But then again, we still have time to decide...

Have great Holidays!
