@Sticky do you have any vendor/lead ?
Any connector can be found in Asia, and they will usually send you samples for free. You need to do a little research and figured out exactly which connector is it and then contact a connector manufacture via alibabba etc. Trying to get them from the actual OEM manufacture wont happen as the MOQ is sky high.

I'm going to have a separate set of wheels/tires for the dragstrip. I want my daily setup to be good enough for roll racing and cornering some fun roads in my area and not be horrible in the rain. I'll be putting down 600+whp with ease, so I'm not sure something like a DWS, PSS, or INVO would fair so well even from a 40-50mph roll "

Yeah, for anyone not realizing this, that is true, and PSS have a great reputation for lasting a longer while, which is probably why they are on so many production vehicles.

But for me:

Quite literally I'm in one of the warmest areas of the United States and we see the highest number of sunny days than anyone else, so I'm not worried about cold weather or anything. We do however get lots of rain the summer, it comes fast, hard, and quick and then is gone, that's my only concern. I could honestly care less how long they last, it's more about how well they perform.
@ChuckD05 that is some awesome input. I'm actually really glad to here how the R888's did in rain cause that's my main concern. My BFG G-force DR's are pretty bad in the rain. Any experience with the BFG G-force T/A? That's the other main tire I was looking at. I don't think I'm going to go with INVO's again, even though I only had a short experience with them on 20" wheels and they were surprisingly good for a 25 ratio...LOL and looked cool as hell "

" New ROMs from a supported "family" (IJE0S, I8A0S, etc) are pretty easy to add since all of the addressing and code is the same. When its a completely new family like this one (INA0S), we have to go back and find every table, axis, monitor, etc. I then have to go back through the code to verify that there are no logic changes that would affect tuning... this is the longest process since I want to make sure that we don't assume that everything is the same. We don't want to push out maps and firmware only to find out that logic changes from BMW are now causing issues with the tunes.

Once all of that is done, I have to make the logic changes that we incorporate into our maps, add support to ATP/ATR and AP firmware, create new maps, and get the new builds pushed out. I highly doubt there's anything majorly different, but there are enough small changes that it takes a lot of time to go through the code. I'm surprised that BMW came out with a new version, but its likely to address some small issue.

We'll get it done as quickly as possible, but we definitely want it to be done right so that we don't have any issues after release. "

" Buraq glad to hear from you I made the change from Hankook Ventus to PSS and DAMN it i cant replicate the swirving and screeching I had with the ventus these PSS grip like mother faulker, and tru on wet roads they're superb specially here in an island that rained almost 9 months last year. And yes they're quieter "

love your 997tt.

I dont know a thing about the BB flash, i will use it as a last resort if cracking the new rom takes long. "

this is certainly accurate.. being in cali where you can drive year round i can see going through atleast another set.. With r888s in NY when you can drive with them youll go through 1.5 sets or so... driven daily ... in NY we get 5-6 months of heat and the rest is chilly... so i can see them being more cost effective for sure...

I mean i bought them, they were on my car took them off with 14k on them and they have plenty of tread left where r888 would be near demise... so they are good in that regard, but thats why i went with conti dws now bc when we get the random dusting out of no where in NY my car drives entirely perfect with the DWS where 1/3 inch of snow makes my car a life threatening asshole with the PSS on it. Xmas eve we got a light dusting , with my wife and 3 month daughter got caught in unexpected flurry after a long day and the car couldnt accel at all without going sideways with traction on... Thats what made me ditch them...

my 135 was my pre family fun car so i wouldnt reallly drive it in the winter knowing it had no chance, i am forced to not drive my subaru pos beater now with the baby as i dont trust its safety features (99 leg gt sedan) so i needed a tire to get me around in snow and the dws is amazing.. so for me it is dws in fall/winter and r888 in spring / summer... allows me to buy 1 set of r888s and two seasons or more from dws'...

PSS are def better that maj other two choices he mentioned... I would look at the new dunlops too they are good... "

Honestly I think PSS are just overpriced. I'd rather save and get the info. I'm really looking for the most aggressive tire that can hold up in wet weather better than drag radials. I was looking at the toyo r888 but I don't think they'll be good enough in rain.

PSS become useless below 60 degrees... I drove my r888s on nice days in the winter and hooked... I am not lying or making anything up... There is a reason you see most gtrs with them or atleast the gtrs i see in NY... I said it before as did @themyst , i prefer my dws over the PSS in every aspect but turn in and its not that far behind.
Great input, honestly hearing first hand experiences blow reviews out of the water. Hopefully @mjmarovi gets a look at this. "
