    (proper photos will be uploaded this weekend, I only have one crappy cellphone picture of my car at the moment) I will try to be as complete as possible with this AD. Please email me if you are truly interested, I will read/respond much faster there. I still owe money to BMW, the title will be mailed from BMW after purchase and payoff. Jaredn at 2011 BMW 335is Space grey exterior, coral red interior N54 engine 7 speed DCT transmission 61,000 miles See attached PDF for VIN and factory options $37,000 I bought this on 4/2014 with 48,000 miles. I put about 600-800 miles on it per month driving to work, 15 miles round trip. CPO warranty until 1/2017, and BMW service contract until 1/2017. These are both transferable with the car for a small fee to BMW and a notarized form. The car was a single owner lease return from Monrovia BMW. I have only serviced the car at South Bay BMW. When I purchased the car, the exhaust had a slight rattle, so I had it replaced under factory warranty. While it was there I had the steering wheel trim replaced since it was peeling near the radio buttons. The LPFP was replaced early this year under CPO warranty. The car is in excellent condition. Interior is a 9/10, exterior is a 9/10. I daily drive the car, but there is covered/garaged parking both at home and at work. Mechanical problems: 1) None Cosmetic problems: 1) Front bumper cover, two minor scratches and a few rock chips from daily driving 2) Rear bumper cover, small scratch on lower passenger side 3) Drivers rear quarter window, small scratch 4) Interior center console, scratch near coin tray The following modifications are installed on the car, and any factory part that was removed will also be included in the sale. (all modifications are completely reversible, no permanent modifications have been done) All parts are roughly 8-10 months old with approximately 5000 miles on them unless specified otherwise. The only OEM parts that I am missing are the factory 313m wheels, which were sold, and the OEM open differential, which was returned to VAC as a core. Maintenance: • On 8/22/2015 I replaced all 6 spark plugs with NGK 95770 (same as 5992) gapped to .22”, 6 new Delphi coil packs, and two new Bosch primary oxygen sensors. This was done before flashing my new Wedge tune with the MHD app. Not installed: • BMS oil catch can • Vorshlag camber/caster pates with Ohlins install hardware • Swift springs (65mm 9" 672 lb/in) to replace Ohlins rear springs • HRE 448R 19x8.5+35, 19x10+30 – Gloss titanium grey lips, satin titanium grey faces, satin black bolts, satin black inner barrels. Freshly refinished and never mounted. These are not included in the price, but can be installed in place of the BBS CH-R. Performance: • MHD tune by Wedge • Wagner Tuning Evo I Performance Intercooler • AFE Stage 2 Intake - Pro Dry S • ER Chargepipe – OEM DV style • Turbosmart Kompact Plumb back diverter valves • UR Catted downpipes (bought used, ~10k miles) Suspension, chassis, drivetrain: • Ohlins Road and Track coilovers (10k miles) • OEM M3 front and rear control arms • OEM M3 front and rear anti-roll bars • OEM M3 differential bushings • MRF engineering solid aluminum rear subframe bushings • Megan racing rear toe arms • VAC built Quaife ATB differential with factory DCT final drive • West End alignment and corner balance • BBS CH-R titanium grey 19x8.5 +32, 19x9.5+35 (less than 4 months old, ~2,000 miles) • Michelin Pilot Super Sport 235/35/19, 265/30/19 (10k miles, plenty of tread left) Interior: • Gladen one 201 speaker system • Gladen Mosconi D2 100.4 amp/dsp • Audio tuning by JTAudio • Kuda dash mount Exterior: • BMW OEM car cover for e92 • Lamin-X “tint” headlight film • Paint matched front reflectors • Tinted side turn indicators • 35% 3M ceramic tint • Ebay painted (black) high kick performance spoiler

    OEM turbos? Wastegate is probably sticking or clamped shut. Time for new turbos. EDIT: Just noticed all the things you've changed. Downpipes could be interfering with wastegate actuator. Chargepipe might not be discharging properly. etc, etc.

    RSL replied to a thread DCT iNA0S Kickdown table testing in N54
    I can't stand that the LC trigger is the top of the pedal, certainly looks better for that with the voltage lowered. Assuming the pedal operates the same for everything else, anything that lowers LC trigger would be a start. I'll try to log stock pedal LC today. 0V, you might not go anywhere or it might be on LC trying to drive LOL Maybe just cut it in half again and see how the pedal reacts first? I'd be messing with this already, but had some quirks moving my tune file from IKC0S to INA0S (still in ATR). I worked around one (still not clear why any workaround was even needed), but one issue still lingers and I'll be damned if I know what's causing it. Still trying to sort that migration before moving again to TP just to mess with any ancillary tables...

    This is that thread. Someone attempted to start the list but got neg repped and gave up. The usernames of people who have chimed in are all here. The large majority of the RB sheep are on the other forum though and any real discussion over there is quickly censored.

    Would be best to find a BimmerBoost member who is an attorney (new in practice) and offer to fund a turbo upgrade for him in place of taking a piece of the settlement (VTT or VM turbos obviously). A list of 20 or more should be able to make something happen.

    I went through the exact same thing, unfortunately I had already installed my turbos when Rob reached out to me about the recall. I paid for labor swap x2 and it was all due to the machining issue as the turbos I sent back had a lot of in/out shaft play. I think we should start a thread and collect the names of everyone affected by this and go directly to Rob and request for compensation. Simply rebuilding the turbos is not enough, if anything that is the bare minimum of expectations.

    I had this happen at about 75k miles. Replaced with IS mounts as well. Really wasn't that bad of a job. Didn't have to remove the downpipes either.

    Quick question, but does the smaller 800hp intercooler have the same pressure drop reduction from off the shelf intercoolers as the bigger 1000hp intercooler has?

    We tuned a large twin kit almost 3 years ago when flash only tunes were still in their infancy stage to a new platform record no problem at all. Tuning a big twin kit with flash only is a non-issue. These days, Just use MHD, and change the HZ so you can control the Mac solenoids, and away you go. Just make sure the person doing the tuning is qualified to do so.
