    • Misfires continue to be an issue for the Vishnu Procede even after the V5 update

      This video was sent to us anonymously. The reason for that is Shiv@Vishnu had seen the video and told the owner not to post it and the owner did not for fear of being punished, lack of support, etc. We happened to get this video which shows a V5 automatic misfiring even after the voluntary harness update and several times of cleared adaptations.

      Notice the boost on the fuel gauge which drops to around or below the stock boost level yet the car still misfires. Misfires were also reported at the recent Atco rental by V5 users and other Procede users on BimmerBoost have mentioned issues with misfires as well. This issue is being brought to your attention as tremendous effort has been expended to keep it quiet on other sites. Come to your own conclusion and we hope Vishnu can resolve it.

        Since Sticky is deciding that I should burn bridges for his own personal gain, I'll set the record straight. The video was sent to two people other than Shiv, LostMarine, and Terry@BMS. Never has Shiv ever instructed me to not post about this, as I was very loud and adamant about the misfire on e90post.

        Based off Sticky's PM response as I have outlined here, I have deduced that burning the bridges of users on this board comes second to hits to this National Inquirer-like thread created by none other than Sticky.

        Here is the pertinent PM request and reply that I had to piecemeal together due to Sticky not replying with the original message intact.

        I wouldn't be one bit surprised if this reply gets deleted.
        Your reply is not going to get deleted.

        Secondly, I didn't know the video was of your car. No one would have known if you did not just state it. So what bridges would be burned? I don't understand.

        Why are you so scared anyway? What did Shiv threaten you with to have you so worried? Why would you showing an issue with a product be burning a bridge? Shouldn't it mean you get the issue resolved?

        We never deleted anything regarding Enrita and his issues and we won't start by deleting this. Why would we delete this and become what we hate? Why would we sweep this under the rug? I understand it isn't pleasant but hiding it from people will not get anything resolved. As I stated, it is my responsibility to provide all the info not just hand picked selection of what is best for vendors.

        I have no desire to hurt you so go ahead and blame this all on me if you like. I did not know this was your video or your car. If Shiv punishes you for issues with his tune I think that is despicable and I certainly don't think he would do that, or at least I hope not but you seem really scared of him at the moment.

        So now you're a psychologist of sorts? What part of "I don't want to burn any bridges" do you not understand? You STILL didn't fix the original thread where clear misinformation was posted. It's clearly evident that your primary motive is to hurt an active user on this board after I privately requested you take the video down because it was intended for private viewing. Normally a REPUTABLE moderator would accommodate requests such as this.

        I seriously hope others who encounter this thread and my replies stay away from here. Your personal videos may get compromised as well.

        Then don't burn them? How are you burning them exactly? I don't understand how you are doing that.

        I'm sorry, what misinformation? That somebody didn't want this posted? Wouldn't your effort right now asking me to delete this confirm that? I am going by what I received in the e-mail and I think the informant was right on as your actions right now substantiate.

        A biased moderator would remove posts that would protect a vendor. A reputable moderator would do what is necessary to make sure information bad or good is not deleted for the benefit of his users. We aren't bimmerpost, your request would no doubt be granted there. Actually, the thread would have been deleted before you even had to ask.

        Why are you so damn scared? What were you threatened with? No one would have even known this was your car or that you had anything to do with it. I did not know until you pm'd me demanding I delete this thread. Good customer service should help you resolve this. No need to be negative, others seem to discuss the misfire issue without this tone.

        Well, I think you are getting a bit out of line and overreacting.

        IMO you should be proud you were the origination behind bringing a valid and real issue to light. You should take a completely different stance, one where you state you have a problem and would like Vishnu to resolve it. What would deleting anything resolve?

        Why should you be scared of your tuner? Your tuner should help you not threaten to abandon you if you have issues. Bud, step away from the keyboard for a second and calm down and realize this isn't a bad thing here.

        And FYI in this part of the original thread:

        This video was sent to us anonymously. The reason for that is Shiv@Vishnu had seen the video and told the owner not to post it and the owner did not for fear of being punished, lack of support, etc. We happened to get this video which shows a V5 automatic misfiring even after the voluntary harness update and several times of cleared adaptations.

        He never told me this. My point here is you are using my personal video for your own personal gain, and at risk of getting yet another negative rep from Sticky, if you're a new user or even an existing user, this complete disregard for a reasonable request by an active member of this board says a lot for the integrity of this information, which is being used for personal gain (more traffic to his fledgling site).

        And BTW, there is a 10 page thread on e90post regarding this issue, with my original rant on it. Would you like for me to post a link to it, where there is a LOT more information instead of us regurgitating old news at the expense of a board member?

        Ok, then why do you feel this is going to burn a bridge? You say you were never told that yet you desperately want this pulled down because you say it will burn a bridge. These are two completely opposite things then you are saying and it does not make sense to me. It is one or the other.

        Uh, we kind of post a lot of videos and information. You would be one part of that. What sets us apart is we will not hide this type of video. I don't know if fledgling qualifies any longer but hey, if you want to put us down because you aren't getting your way that's fine. Seems we get enough views that you want it pulled.

        You request is not reasonable. Your request is designed to protect Vishnu which I simply will not do. You can yell, you can scream, you can insult me, I won't be pushed into taking the video down. I have integrity and intend to keep it that way by not pulling things like this down. That is to the benefit of the users and I also did not completely disregard your request. I made my position clear to you as well as my perspective. You are really overblowing this as others are discussing it rationally and providing their experience with the same issue.

        This video wasn't posted on e90post now was it? Doesn't seem to me like we are regurgitating old news it seems to me you are trying to get something not previously revealed pulled. Not old news then is it?

        If you like E90 and prefer their style, go there where Shiv would make sure this video did not exist. I'm very happy with our quality of information and members.

        For all of those reading this banter by a moderator trying to justify a dick move, 'nuff said.

        Point here is, a user kindly requested a video be taken down. The MODERATOR refuses to remove because it's good for traffic to his dead site. The End.

        It isn't a dick move at all to put up relevant information. I think it is a dick move on your part to throw a tantrum when you don't get your way. You could handle this in a far different manner.

        Please, explain to us all how this is going to burn a bridge and why you feel a video that no one would have even known had anything to do with you would do that? Why is an issue with a tune that should be resolved by the tuner with quality customer service such a big problem?

        Are you not even allowed to remotely highlight a problem? Are we trying to create an illusion that everything is perfect with the Procede? How does that help anyone? When you step away I think you will see this is far more beneficial than simply deleting it.

        Dead site? Hahah, ok, if you say so. For the record, posting and browsing numbers are the highest they have been. Thanks for trying to put us down though I guess... I'll just have to keep working for the benefit of the users by respecting them enough to not have to delete content. Many people do seem to like it Click here to enlarge

        Sticky not taking the video down is your choice.

        However not removing or editing the part in the original post about the video's originator not posting it due to Shiv asking them not to do so is misleading given that the person who's video it is clearly states that is not the case.

        The least you should do is alter the original post so that the misleading information is removed; to do otherwise is just poor form and unsportsmanlike.

        I would totally agree with you if that actually was the case.

        Do you believe this user was told not to put this video up? The video was seen and was not put up even though a thread on the topic existed, correct? Now he states that leaving this up will "burn a bridge" and affect him negatively in some way although he won't clarify why.

        There is something missing between the video and his fear of a bridge being burnt. Is it not logical the e-mail I received is correct and he was told not to put it up? Would not everything in the thread logically correlate with that?

        Do you have proof that Shiv actually requested I don't post the video? I think not, and it never happened. Take a look folks; negative repping a user who asked a private video be removed and then lambasting him for publicly posting the denied request. At his rate of negative repping, I'll be banned in a week!

        I haven't seen anything of value or truth from you thus far, only a temper tantrum. If you want to continue to lash out rather than address the issue, feel free. One is childish one isn't.

        First of all you are being a Prick. Second, if the video is private why is it on Youtube. Also, you can set a video to Private on Youtube. You just cant request him to take the video down. Its your fault the video is public.

        I suppose you stating Shiv requesting me not to post a video is the truth? Or the fact you denied my request to delete a private video is a lie? I'd say its VERY relevant to how information on this site is obtained or misinformation purposely created to stir up hits to this site. The only hits you are getting to this thread are mine and yours! Click here to enlarge

        Do you have proof that Shiv did not request you not post the video? I think he did or else it would have been posted right? I think he did or else you would not be demanding it get deleted right? I think he did or else you would not be crying about not getting your way right now, right? I think he did or you would not be whining about "burning a bridge" right?

        The video isn't private. There are even mirrors on Youtube, seems this spread to a bunch of people and once it hits the internet you can't do anything about it.

        Lambasting? That is what you are doing, I'm keeping relevant info up that you demand to be pulled. It isn't coming down, whine all you want.

        Because Sticky put it there, silly! A private video sent to THREE people, so one is to blame. At this point, the poor taste of moderation is more the issue than the video being posted.

        Sticky if it's the case that the user has been threatened as you indicated then post your evidence.

        The last line of your post indicates that you think there is "something missing" ... so do you have evidence or not?

        No evidence means your just embellishing, bullshitting etc, which IMHO is just as bad as over moderation.
