I love that pushing the M button gave you 8hp from one dyno run to the next and people rave about the huge gains they get from changing their air filter... haha.

The only thing that upsets people on this board more than saying the M button increases power is to say that your new axle back exhaust added 50 HP to your car

People really need to chill the hell out. Mob mentality at its best. One guy starts and the rest of the lemmings follow.
The dude just stated a finding which he thought he found. Regardless if he is wrong, there is no need to act like rude dicks.

You deserve a ball busting if you aren't willing to search and look for stuff first. At least make some attempt to search first instead of just making a new thread. Go to E46Fanatics for awhile then come back here and let me know if you feel the same way...

Or you can just get your balls busted, take like a man, we all laugh about it and move on.

I guess some are going through man-o-pause and can't take the heat.

Clearly you have not read through enough threads on this forum.
