Thanks

Thanks ya-zook - I'll go that way too. It's not like the weight-savings of the carbon roof will make a bankable difference - and LA is hotter than ever. Cheers

Moon / Steel Roof on '16 M3

Hi all - close to ordering a '16 M3 and selling the '12 335i Sportline with the Dinan Shockware - but not in love with the "two-tone" look of the car thus far. Probably going to go with the Mineral...

F30 Shockware After 3 Years

Dear Clueless - I have to say the purchase and installation of Dinan's Shockware in my 2012 F30 was and still is, the best thing I could have done for the car. Every time I drive a loaner it just...

Hi Jamolay and Cleaver - If "set-up" wasn't such a vast landscape sort of subject, with plenty of wormholes, ditches, hunches and guesses, there would never be more than .0000027 seconds between any...

Shockware, in Principal

As I said on Bimmerfest when I had my Shockware installed the week it was released on my '12 335i Sportline with Adaptive Sport Suspension: I finally had the car I thought I was paying for in the...

I was told by Crevier BMW that if I decided I "didn't like" the Shockware, I could bring the car back in and have it "deleted". I assume that you could do the same thing just before your lease is up...

Shockware is Perfect

Like I said months ago when I had Shockware installed by Crevier, Shockware gave me the BMW I expected to get in the first place. 2012 F30 Sportline, Adaptive M. If every foot of road in both...

Two Weeks with Shockware

Last word - after two weeks and 700 miles, the $568 spent on both the Shockware and installation is simply the best $568 I've ever spent in terms of cost/benefit. And as a ransom payment to BMW to...

One last opinion - To me, the new "Normal" mode with my Shockware installed is not just the factory "Sport" mode moved up to the default mode of the Adaptive M Suspension. Dinan's "Normal" is better...

Fuel Shutoff
