After I had my Dinan Stage 1 module installed I put in a Remus exhaust to give it a bit more bark. Just under a year later I had it removed and my stock muffler welded back in place. It sounded...

Waze & bluetooth

I'm an avid user of Waze for coping with traffic in SF and previously the experience with the BMW bluetooth integration has been (mostly) great. However recently, the audio prompts stopped working...

I too agree that it looks as though your tires are underinflated although the first tire looks like it might have a bit of an alignment issue but it is hard to tell. Probably obvious from the...

Do the xenons on LCI X3s utilize both lenses/cutouts in the headlight housing for high and low beams? In pre-LCI X3s with xenon, only the outer lens is used for both high and low beams (a mechanical...

It was fixed when I brought it in for its first oil change which all was done in the same day. They didn't need to replace any parts so it was just labor.

Same thing happened to me. It's just the leather flap that covers the gap so the thigh support should still be adjustable and function correctly. I tried to clip mine back in but it wouldn't stay so...

I think all-in I paid around $2K with a 10% off coupon. Overall I like the Dinan tune and the extra power it generates. As for how it drives, I'd say that it definitely preserves the feel of the...

This is similar logic I used when I decided to install Dinan on my 35i, except it was to stave off my desire for the Macan for a few more years,. Given that the price differential was closer to $30K...

I'd be interested to know whether LEDs handle on/off cycling better than Xenon. My guess is that they are far better given how many applications there are for LED strobes. In auto mode my...
