    Sprint Booster throttle module for 2001+ BMW and M cars

    The Sprint boost gets rid of all automatic lag and DCT lag but wacking open the throttle sooner, it feels great and makes the car feel alot faster then it is.

    MSRP $299, $125 from me

    When BMW began using the "Drive-by-wire" throttle system in 2001, a lot of people cringed. The Drive-by-wire system uses electronics to replace the mechanical cable throttle of the past. This means the electronics between the accelerator pedal and motorized throttle must interpret what your right foot does, and ultimately decides how the engine will respond. Although advanced in it's technology and engineering, many of us agree that the Drive-by-Wire equipped BMWs feel unresponsive and lack the crisp, sharp throttle response that older BMWs had with a traditional throttle cable. That's where the Sprint Booster comes in.

    The Sprint Booster is an in-line "plug and play" module, that remaps the Drive-by-Wire throttle curve to be much quicker than stock programming. It removes the "lag" or delay that exists in the stock electronic mapping. The result is sharper, quicker throttle response and immediate power delivery.

    We found the difference to be NIGHT AND DAY, and were instantly smitten by the snappier feel the Sprint Booster gave to both a stock BMW as well as on a modified BMW. What's more - the Sprint Booster installs in just a few minutes at the back of the gas pedal. Simply release pedal from the pedal base by unlocking the locking tab, pull the pedal up/foward, unplug the harness, and plug in Sprint Booster. Here's an example of how simple the install is -- installation on an E46 3 series.

    How does it work? The Sprint Booster listens to the pedal input signal, and sends an improved signal to the ETC (electronic throttle control) which has been amplified or "boosted", so that the throttle is more responsive throughout the entire rpm range.

    The Sprint Booster is available for the following BMWs:
    2001-2006 E46 3 Series including 325i, 325Ci, 330i, 330Ci
    2001-2006 E46 M3 coupe & convertible (manual & SMG!)
    2006+ E90/E91/E92/E93 3 Series including 325i, 325xi, 328i, 328xi, 330i, 330xi, 335i & 335xi
    2008+ E90/E92/E93 M3 coupe, sedan & convertible
    2008+ E82/E88 1 Series including 128i & 135i
    2003+ Z4 & MZ4 Roadster & Coupe including Z4 2.5, 3.0 and M
    2004+ E60/61 5 Series including 525i, 530i, 530xi, 535i, 535xi, 545i, 550i & M5
    2004+ E63/E64 6 Series including 645i, 650i & M6
    2002+ E65/E66 7 Series including 745i, 745Li, 750i, 750Li & 760Li
    2001+ X3/X5/X6 SAV (all)

    They are universal for the 2001 BMW+, its a signal booster - it doesn't care what type of transmission you have. No magic here.

    No torque converter - no automatic.

    Sorry but you are wrong, there are two different part numbers one for AT and the other for MT, unless your is the older model.

    I know this because I had one a couple weeks ago and my cuz liked it and bought it from me.

    For the E92 M3 it is the same product number for both transmissions. For other models, it is a separate product number form manual and auto.

    A DCT is not an automatic.

    So the double-clutch transmission is a manual transmission?

    Well the double-clutch transmission is a double-clutch transmission. Technically, it is a manual, and since there is no torque converter it fits that definition better. Really, it is its own category.

    It's the older model, there is no difference between the two.

    and a torque converter means automatic, a DCT is not. JM2C.

    Also, since we have cleared this up and you obviously aren't interested in buying it. I would appreciate off topic comments not in this thread. Thanks.

    I was interested, but you have to old version, I regret selling mine to my cuz.

    The newer version is fantastic, and I guess I will have to buy it brand new.
