Coming in late to this party, but I just found this thread.

My wife's X3 was made in April 2012, so it should have the later software. I don't drive it often, but the tip-in delay drives me...

Never thought I'd say this, but with just a tune (no DPs, FMIC, etc.) I actually feel like the car is almost too fast for the street. I spend my weekends on the track, and while I want as much as I...

I'm more concerned about the lack of a spare tire. I can live with the e-dipstick, although I don't understand why they did it.

I've got one from 1960, still sealed.

I found ebay bids up to around $75 for similar bottles with the purple bag.

I'll stick to my Wild Turkey 101.

I routinely get 29-31, best tank 33.1. Boring 35 mile commute.

Makes it hard to justify an econobox.

Hmmm. I'm getting more tempted.

Thanks for the review.

How 'bout a Mark All Read button on the New Posts results page? In the old version there was a button that seemed to be functional from any page.

I think everyone is "home for the holidays." Amazing how much the board traffic drops when people aren't at work.

Agreed. That's why I dropped my C/C coverage.

This is probably why it cost me twice as much to insure a 7 year old M3 than a brand new 330i.

DBW Fix

Has anybody come up with a fix for the lousy DBW throttle response yet? Without getting into the JC/Shark Injector issue, has anybody had good results with any other software for the '02 330?
