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...

I get it - I went to Dinan in January I think it was, to see their red 335 development mule. The car is gorgeous with their springs, but I just had a feeling that springs alone wouldn't be the right...

I would just say "forget about Comfort"; it was/is awful. It floated/sailed/"Buicked" it's way down the road. The default mode that the car now starts in, is simply "Normal" - meaning that it feels...

Fuel Shutoff

I've had the same problem with my '12 335i, at many different gas stations but mostly at my favorite station which was really getting to be absurd. The auto-shutoff would kick in after 5 or 10...

Timing

Just a comment on tire pressures - My '12 335i Sport has always under-steered even on the gentle bends of LA freeways. For the record, I've always run my tires on most cars around +2psi. I also know...
