Alright so I got the 240e DME update and the DCT update as well. I spent sometime driving the car this weekend and notice a few things.
-The car idles at slightly lower revs -Power delivery is feels smoother throughout the revs
-I think the car shifts gears at lower revs in D mode
-throttle feels a little more responsive in D mode
-the car feels like a different car with the new update


I am satisfied with increased overall drivability of the car. I am not sure if the DTC software update affected my perception as well but I am glad I did this update.

H8 bulb

Hi folks. My left daytime running light (halo) went out this week - looks like I need to pick up an H8 bulb.

Anyone know if they can be found locally? (Edmonton)

Or where in Canada to order from?

thanks!

H8 is pretty common size. You should be able to find them anywhere.

Hey guys,

I am selling my M3 for a more practical all season car.

So I am parting out my M3.

For sale

Eisenmann Sport Exhaust with connecting pipes. Will fit any 4 Door M3 2008+.

Trim kit for M3 in Black High Gloss, side vents and front grills. Never installed. BNIB.

Neez QD7 Wheels with Summer tires. 19" wheels with offsets specifically for the M3. They are some of the finest forged wheels in the world. Retail price over $6k.

http://neezinternational.com/index2.html

PM me for details and prices. All items are local in YEG.

I'll be posting on the For Sale Canada section later. Local sales preferred.

Thx

I am unaware of any shop that has done thi mod in town. I have approached a couple in town, and they said they wouldn't do it...

I know Dr. Anthony did it himself and had someone weld it shut aferwards...

I will be doing the OEM mod - perferated pipes being coverd next weekend possibly, so will let you know how that goes...

HTH...
