A very basic question - but have they double checked that the software matches your VIN?

Now now... Don't get too bent out of shape, this is nothing in the grand scheme of things. They will work through it, and your patience will be rewarded. At least you have a free loaner in the interim, probably the shittiest little loaner on the lot, but a loaner nonetheless.

Local dealer wants >$500 for the install. I apolise for not having the exact price. My mind went elsewhere when I heard five hundred and missed the rest of the conversation.
No thanks,

so the dealer said the VIN not an issue. They are now waiting on a patch for the stability control fault.

what a coincidence, Microsoft patch Tuesday raising hell for me at work, and my car needs patches too. damn computers.

Welcome to the wonderful world of technology my friend. That damn computer is going to put a big smile on your face when you get it back from the dealer.

After about a month of driving with MPPK, the best way to describe it for me would be to compare the car to an F30 328i. Much easier on the up and go and pushes harder. Fuel consumption is the same, if you can stay off the gas

I've had MPPK installed for about 3 weeks now - butt dyno says it did as advertised, 10% more hp/torque. I expected it to be louder, but I guess the stock muffler silences very well. Anyone else only do MPPK without MPE?

For reference and comparison, here is my other video of just stock Msport exhaust couple weeks after I took delivery.




I think I have permanent goosebumps Kzang !!

I have the same setup mppk with mpe and it's way quieter than expected. Those videos are in the best acoustic situations imo. Thoughts on removing the bend before the mpe clamp point?

Does 35i have secondary cats? I know from experience that deleting them will make exhaust louder for those who wants it just a bit more loud

Anyone got a video of just the mpe without the mppk? I think the mppk is overrated.

Also anyone got a vid of the mpe with the rcu or jb4?

I could be wrong but MPPK tune adds a more pronounced burble to the MPE.

Wonder if rcu or jb4 will do the same without the mppk. Its kinda nonsense to pay 1k+ for something that has more gains for half the price.
