FS: Sprint Booster for BMW E9X M3

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds

Item Interest
Sprint Booster Drive-by-Wire Enhancement Module

Had this on my old E92 M3, great mod, I just removed it when the lease was up. Looking for $100 for the piece.....i'd prefer local pickup in Orange County, CA. I'm located in Newport Beach / Costa Mesa. However I will ship this item anywhere, the shipping cost will only be about $15 or so....

Call 949 514 7137 to arrange pick up.

This will go quick, I think I paid over $300 for it.


Tech Data:

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.

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.

Exactly. why anyone would want this is beyond me. Its super touchy in sport more and even WORST in sport plus mode for those who have that (DCT).

But to each there own I guess.

This seems like a great mod for people who track their M3's.
