No thanks. My wife works in the insurance business and too many comprehensive coverage claims will increase your risk score. I already had a hail damage claim earlier in the year.

Safelite OEM

To my amazement, Safelite replaced my cracked windshield with OEM upon request for $620. The dealership wanted $1280.

The replaced glass is Pilkington with a BMW logo, an exact replacement, rather...

I believe it would start on the 15th month. You would then qualify for another free oil change 12-months thereafter, or after an additional 15K miles, whichever comes first.

Did you mean to say 3 free oil changes? My local dealer changed my oil free-of-charge after 12-months at 9K and again after 18-months at 15K, the latter included a CBS reset.

In your case, I can...

My boxer and Goldens have gone for rides on the back seats. A back seat cover should be used. The only problem is that their claws can scratch the center console. Best to wax it, as I did, so it...

I wonder whether Dinan flashes alter the self adaption map in any way.

If Dinan calibrates boost to around 14 psi, will the DME self adaption map push it to say 16 psi at higher altitudes? Has...

For the 335i, if the boost was kept under 15 psi, long term engine/transmission problems were kept to a minimum. The current BMS and Dinan tunes are not aggressive enough to get you into risky...

Excellent find, Alan. And like you said earlier, no CANbus connection. This implies that BMS is indeed using the stock map.

I think the Dinan 501/580 may be fairly accurate, although I personally would expect a little more low end grunt with nealy 600 foot-pounds of torque. The F10 is fairly heavy though.

That said,...

Yes, it is a wonderful option with a fantastic price. Problem is, many of us went with Dinan a couple of years ago because BMS did not offer anything for the N63.

The BMS piggy back for the N63 is not like the old JB+ (i.e. no map modification) and is unlikely to be additive to a Dinan flash. It is my understanding that the BMS piggy back runs its own map,...
