I really can't say what was happening to you other than a software thing? If it's any consolation, your 335i sounded awesome!

Just got back from Carb Connection, cause it was eatin me up!

And what do you know... still kicked down a gear (sport+ & manual mode, etc.).

But massaged the throttle really carefully and got in 3 clean runs... and ended up putting down 286hp/345lb-ft at the wheels.

Now that the mystery of the missing power is solved, it's on to getting that X3 for my wife!

PS - Sorry to threadjack... but the N55 is just a great engine!
