This is the one that I used. Many others on this forum use it too. It can be found all over the net. It appears to be the design that has been relabeled for sale by BMW themselves:

As I said in my earlier posts in this thread, this car improperly reports that the battery is low, at low temperatures. I know this to be true. The reasons are as follows:

The Slime 280 Watt claim is erroneous. For starters, 12V x 15A = 180 Watts - far less than the 280 claimed. In addition, nobody but an idiot would specify a 15A device with a 15A fuse, so the actual...

Mine comes out of Sport+ and goes to normal Sport when I activate cruise control. Are you sure that isn't what you are also seeing?

:jawdrop: I think you should call the general manager of the dealership - or perhaps BMWNA themselves and ask them 'what you were thinking...' Maybe you'll get an answer that you can live with.

Although I wish it would, mine is a 2012 and does not do that. What's yours - or is it a software update?

I can only speak for my 2012 535 with SAT, but when I go into Sport, my gears downshift and my throttle curve also gets way more aggressive. If I hold the pedal constant when I change modes, the car...

If you find a kit like this, pick it up. The #1 does a nice job of protecting it and making it shine that much more. The #3, I would not go near unless you have a serious gall.

You gotta wonder how BMW views a dealer that uses the vehicle diagnostic capability as a starting place to ultimately bilk customers. I think you should ask BMW what their take is.
