Just put on Michelin Pilot Sport AS/3 tires on my 528i - So far I like them a lot better than the Hancook V12 that they replaced.

Unplug MAF - see if it starts/runs in lim mode? Doesn't mean your MAF is bad just a place to start.

Does it seem like a low/exhuast type tone? If so, how are the motor & tranny mounts? Ever replaced at that mileage?

Yup factory amp is removed. I did the same thing, and all speakers are 'tracked down' to their wires, except the front woofers. It's like they are wired together somewhere.

I had all inputs connected. I don't think it's input related.

I wonder if it might the coils, if not the MAF. I'm sure they are affected by the 'default values' applied when MAF is disconnected. My $$$ is still on the MAF though.

Maybe I'm out of my element, but why would a car run differently with/without MAF connected when there is oil in the spark plug wells (Leaking VCG)? MAF has nothing to do with that.

False.

They go bad all the time. Having 2.5k posts you should know this. I have 3 (4 if you count me) friends with E39s (i6 and v8) and we all had our MAFs fail between 120k and 170k miles, not...

If MPH - this sounds about right. Any car, even the ones that are 'rated' 30mpg+ will drop to your level at that speed. Wind Resistance increases exponentially as you go...

Why is still being discussed? You need a new MAF. And don't go looking for some cheap ones on eBay either. OEM only.

Plugged In = Runs like $hit
Unplugged = Runs as it should on default values

Maybe I'm an idiot for being sort of emotionally attached to my car, but part of the reason I don't want to get rid of my 528i (w/ 250k miles) is because it has 250k miles. And after I re-did the...
