I'm moving to Italy later this year, can you PM me details on getting the latest European maps for my F80? Finding the FSC would also be helpful. Thanks!

I get gas on base at AAFES and I average about 23 mpg. My commute is only about nine miles, with stop-and-go bracketing the short highway bit.

Mine has insufficient negative camber on the right as well. Of course, since my car has 9500 miles on it BMW won't warranty it. Nice to know there's a fix for it. For now I just run slightly lower...

The noise from the rear that sounds like a tin can is well documented on the F8x. You're getting rocks in between the rotors and rear brake shields. I pushed my shields away from the rotors to...

North Carolina has the worst drivers I've ever seen, by far. They make CA drivers look like saints.

(I also miss the autobahn, so I intend to be living in Europe again about 18 months from now.)

F80: How to code comfort steering by default?

Mine also pulls to the right and it's not covered under warranty. :mad: I went to the dealer nearest me and they didn't even have the specs for the 2015 M3 in their alignment machine. Pathetic.

I like MW a bit better (especially with the carbon roof), but MG stays so much cleaner. It's also more stealthy...lots of people don't notice me (which can be both good and bad).

Success! I may have not coded the FDL after changing the REM, because all the values had reverted back to default. I reapplied them, coded FDL, and it's working now.

Thanks for the assist!
