    Yea if you look back a few posts I said they advertise two separate clutches on their website. One is the pucked clutch and the other is the full faced clutch.

    Mine did the exact same thing and the reservoir itself was bad/leaking....so said the dealer. Being stranded I had it towed directly to the dealer.

    While heading to a restaurant, the first thing I noticed is that the car suddenly lost response. Didn't have much time to think about it until I got a red "high engine temp" message. I immediately turned the engine off and coasted to the shoulder. I opened the hood and saw fluid splattered all over the passenger side of the engine cover and pooled around the coolant reservoir. After letting the car cool a bit I opened the reservoir and saw that it was still full. Any ideas? Car is an '08 E92 with ~45k miles.

    Bro I have no horse in this race but your post has no logic, with any invention or project there are specialist that handle the different parts, that is perfectly normal. An architect who designed houses needs plumbers,electricians, mason workers, etc to execute what he has in his head. So if Sticky has an idea that involves software he would hire a guy that specializes in that to write it for him, that doest name him stupid. What do you expect him to go learn how to write code so you don't call him dumb?? And if he did hire this guy on his project team, this guy doesn't get to branch off on his own because the project is taking too long. So in this case it seems Sticky is correct. For Demacpro to say he forgot or it's taking to long is ridiculous.

    Just throw a Stage1 tune on it then and call it a day. Installs in a few min and will give you easy reliable 40whp gains: http://burgertuning.com/M3_M4_stage_1_BMW_performance_tuner.html

    I still havent heard anything back from PTF nor SPEC. Thats okay though clutch is coming out next weekend anyways. I just wish it wasn't falsely advertised which is Motiv/PTF's fault. They should at least know what product they are selling and describing in their parts description. Which i'm sure they have changed now, and if they haven't thats just stupidity on their part.

    BTW.. I really don't feel this shop is trying to pull one over on me, i think they just have a strong opinion about flash tuning. At the end of the day, my goals are i just want to add another 40-60 hp to my car, perhaps add an exhaust (such as an Akrapovic or Meisterchaft) and have a reliable service shop i can work with to install this and work with me on any future tunes/services. Just not the area around here to do that it appears but if you know a shop in the Louisville or even Indianapolis area i'm open to options.

    Sticky, thanks so much for your honest feedback. I live in Southern IN and deal with a shop called Mike Johns Imports. They say they have a "guy" in CA that does flash tunes but would never really tell me who he is what his experience is. I finally got to one of the owners who was an 11 year technical for the Louisville BMW dealer and he said he just flashed his X5 with this "guy" and it's way better than a bolt on. He had me really thinking this was the cleanest and best way to avoid warranty issues and would add the best performance to my car. However after your last comment on a "bad flash" that just confirms my biggest hesitation. After researching here and different opinions i'm honestly just confused and to the point i'm not sure if i even want to tune it. I think I just need to talk to someone who has both and see which option is best for me. Just can't seem to find a good BMW performance shop around this area.

    That would kill me lol I always get funny looks when I back out of a parking spot because of all the noises my car makes when I try to reverse slowly.

    I just installed my ER CP/Tial combo this weekend. I can't really hear the BOV unless I really get on it either, but no vac/boost issues. Just seems like a subdued BOV design is all, although I've read that with upgraded intake inlets it can get loud. I actually prefer the "softness" of the Tial.

    I never saw this. I completely forgot about the enterprise chips. With DX12 coming out, those should become much better at handling the newest games. We'll probably start to see games that are more CPU intensive once DX12 is out. I need to get Day Z. FC4 is fun, but I tired of it pretty quickly; it's only worth $20 in my opinion. Between this hobby, and cars, I'm going to go broke.

    Also one more thought I forgot to include in the review. The reverse gear is horrid. There is no slipping it and it will jerk around until it's in gear. The reverse gear fully engaged with no gas is actually pretty fast too and you can't use the brake or it will start to kill the engine.

    Agreed, this is in no way Motiv or PTFs fault. If I get offered the switch I'm going to take it because I don't race often enough for this clutch to be worth it for all the rest of the time I put up with it.

    Sticky replied to a thread F82 Tune- ECU Flash or JB4? in S55
    Well they are pushing it because that is what they sell. Especially with comments like number 1. What shop is this? Because I'd love to call them on this. Selling things is fine. Misleading people for profit, I'm not cool with that. No. The whole point of the piggyback is it is giving the ECU signals that influence its operation. The ECU can't just start ignoring it suddenly. Think of it as different profile. You can have a higher boost map for E85 or race fuel for example. It's impossible really for a flash to be more discrete. The ecu has to be removed. Flashing back to stock is really your only option for preventing a dealer from noticing and there is a flash counter I believe anyway. It's not a big deal but the piggyback is more convenient in this area. Yes, if it's a bad flash it can screw things up badly. Well where do you live?

    Yes, Terry has it based at 899 before tax and shipping yes and that is a damn good price however along with this group buy you could be getting it for $824 and then a $55 credit to anything you want from cp-e so essentially $769!

    Thanks Sticky for the comments and reference to Mike. And thanks Mike for the advice on this. This local BMW service shop (a group of guys that worked for an authorized shop now staring their own) really were pushing the flash option indicating a few things that perhaps you can comment on. 1. Bolt on tune is like a "hybrid' tune and eventually the cars computer will learn and adjust the modification the JB4 is trying to make 2. Because of point 1, a flash tune is more pure and therefore the car will respond better to the tune. My concerns questions regarding these points. 1. Can the computer really learn the JB4 tune and start reverting back to stock specs? 2. I"m not clear what "mapping" means on the JB4. I understand you can have a stage 1 and stage 3 but I was looking at the JB4 Beta from Burger Tuning and they can map up to 10 which indicated i could use other mixtures of gas. How do I use other mixtures? 3. Regarding the flash tune, they said this option was actually more discrete then the JB4 option and to your point, i'd have to disconnect the JB4 everytime i went in for a maintenance work. Is that really the case? Do people add these JB4's to their cars and then disconnect them every time for service appointments? 4. The flash tune concerned me because i'm not confident in the idea of taking out the cars main computer. Could it easily be re-flashed back to stock? What if the flash tune code isn't solid? Could it impact the cars engine in a really bad way? I might need to talk to someone live on the phone about this who really knows this stuff because as you tell, i'm brand new to this and learning as i go. thanks!

    Great review and very very comparable to how I feel about the clutch. That said, I hear Spec is actually in the testing process for the carbon/kevlar full faced twin disc that we were all supposed to get from the beginning. Hopefully, now that they have material to make the correct discs, the testing will go well and we can all, unfortunately, pull the trans once more. edit:not a dig at all to PTF or Motiv. Spec supplied the incorrect clutch discs unbeknownst to PTF and Motiv from my understanding.

    How many miles on your DCT? The only time I had slipping was with JB4/backend and I was able to work around that with adjusting load targets. With flash only I have had zero slip making a good bit more torque than I did with JB4. I like Tony's idea of going 2+ and keeping the torque down to say <550 lb ft and ramping up the boost as you get into higher RPM and make a nice 625-650hp up top. I'd rather having Stage 2+s not maxed out than to get Stage 2s and squeeze everything I can out of them. The Dodson clutch pack upgrade seems to be a good thing but the price is pretty steep.
