    I've got a 2008 335i coupe sitting in my garage begging me to finally get off my butt and do something with it. Before I go down that road though, the current transmission shifts like sh!t, although it doesn't throw any codes. Does anyone know first-hand which transmission this car has, 6HP19 or 6HP21? Car is a 10/07 build. I've done a lot of searching but all I can find are people taking "best guesses" based on wiki-type data, and even ZF seems to contradict themselves. I'm looking for someone that's been under an '08 coupe that can say, definitively, that it has model "XX".

    The Camaro ZL1 already offers incredible performance out of the box. You can get it as a coupe or as a convertible. For those who want the ZL1 specifically for track dominance, the coupe with the new 1LE option will be the best performance choice. Why? The revised aerodynamics alone help the car stick to the road. We're talking an additional 300 pounds of downforce. This will increase drag of course but the point is making up time in the turns. You also have new wheels and rubber. Very sticky Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires (in a new ZL1 1LE specific compound) are included in a whopping 305mm width up front and 325mm in back. Is there any downside to the 1LE option? Well, it is manual transmission only although the gear ratios are revised for the roadcourse. That means this car is all about driver interaction on the track. If you consider yourself a driver and don't care about the straightline as much as you do the experience then this is the enthusiast package. Anything else? Yes, weight is dropped by 60 pounds and the spring rates are adjusted. As far as performance Chevy claims a 3 second increase on their test track over the standard ZL1. If previous test results are anything to go by that means the ZL1 1LE has nothing to fear from just about anyone. Certainly not from any car in its price range. Incredible work from Chevrolet making their beast even better.

    The N63 and N63TU (technical update) twin turbo 4.4 liter V8's offer incredible tuning value. Although the engines are twin turbocharged and share the 4.4 liters of displacement (and some of the engine internals) with the S63TU out of the F10 M5 the N63 manifold and turbo setup differs. That means the N63 is not quite as capable as the S63 with bolt on tuning but it still gets great aftermarket gains and is a much better value. Just look at the price of an F10 M5 and a used 550i. One can buy a 550i, add a JB4, and have M5 performance at a fraction of the cost: The N63 and N63TU are simply a great BMW turbo tuning value and have yet to reach their potential in the aftermarket.

    Requires quite a bit of patience and a very ventilated room (transmission fluid stinks). Aside from the the usual screwdriver set (torx is required), you will probably need needle nose pliers, precision screw driver (to remove clips and such) to assist the install. Be very careful when separating the halves, there are checkballs (little plastic balls) and check valves that may fall out. It should be separated with the VB flat on the table. Order the correct separator plate and have it ready before starting the install. The zip kit has to be done with the VB fully uninstalled. There are several bolts holding the VB to the transmission that goes complete though which wont allow you to separate the VB into its halves. I did the DIY in my own garage as well. It's very doable as a DIY.

    Thanks, Psycho; I may tap on your shoulder in the near future. Some upfront questions, though: the zip kit is described as not requiring special tools. It reads like its an easy install. Your thoughts? Also, can it be installed with the transmission still in the car? Was planning on a DIY in my garage....

    Mine was a very slow leak and the fluid dried onto the bottom of the transmission fluid pan so it didn't make it to the floor either. Additionally, there is a splash shield there so you might not see fluid on the floor unless the leak is significant. Sounds like you got a plan there. I think you should go for it and see if that fixes it. You can PM me anytime if you have any questions regarding the Zip Kit install.

    No leaks that I know of, but I haven't been under the car. There's nothing on the floor of my garage and nothing in my parking space at work. I think I may do the zip kit, solenoids, sleeve, pan & filter, and BMW brand fluid and then reset adaptations. If that doesn't do it, then I'll flog the sh!t out of it until it either throws a code or won't drive. Then I'll take it in for a warranty repair.

    Did you spot any leaks from the transmission? I got symptoms 1 and 2 (but occasional) from a leaking mechatronics sleeve and low fluid. If you can have the SA sit in your car and demonstrate those symptoms, that would be best. I doubt you want to be arms deep in transmission fluid (yuck!)

    Several. - Very weak shifts and sometimes no shift at all, I have to let off the gas and slow down for it to change gears (when pushing it hard). - When it shifts, sometimes it sounds like a manual that someone hit the clutch too quickly when shifting gears as there's a slight rev increase and time lapse before it finds the next gear (during DD). - Quite often, its as if it doesn't seem to know or can't make up its mind on which gear it should be in - the shift points seem make no sense (during DD). The car's under warranty, but if I take it in now I'll know I'll get told "there's no codes so we're not gonna touch it".

    I did the zip kit at the same time I was trying to resolve a leaking mechatronic sleeve. If there wasn't anything wrong with your transmission in the first place I would advise against it. I did not feel like it made my shifts any firmer. I did start feeling a delayed 1-2-3 shifts under low load after the install but that might be due to the Redline D4 fluid I used instead of the OEM fluid. If you are considering it, understand that in addition to the zip kit, you will need to purchase a separator plate for the transmission. This ranges anywhere from 60-100 dollars depending on which one you have and where you get it. What symptoms are you facing with your transmission?

    Thanks for chiming in, Psycho. Interesting that you mentioned the Zip kit; I was strongly considering one. Do you feel it was a worthy investment?

    Your 2008 has a 6HP21 which is a gen 2 of a 6HP19. BMW called it 6HP19Z; Z for technical update. I know this first hand since I did the Zip kit on my 2007 (3/07 build date) and it took the Gen 2 6HP21 kit. Valve body layout matches exactly that of the Gen 2.
