Did you clear the error after doing the coding?

I meant without the module. Codes will persist until you clear them, even after turned off.

I am please to finally post that we now have a working flap motor. Thanks to the efforts of Terraphantm and Cyberkaa we can prove that it is possible to make a none CSL into a CSL.

This includes, Temp Sensor, Map Sensor with rail, and now the flap motor.

This is more or less the only E46 M3 I care about, so nice.

Btw, did you ever receive your WPC treated rod bearings? Would love to hear updates on that.

One of the local photographers asked me and a few other to do a photo shoot last month. He runs Dare To Be Different Photography and based on the following images he sent me I think they are pretty darn good. I will have parts updates coming in the next few weeks so stay tuned =)

Someone on another forum asked me to compare the 1M to the M3. Here is what I posted.

Character:
1M is very friendly to drive as a daily driver, which is what I use it for. Also it does great on long road trips. However hit the M button and you now have a car that is like a kid jacked up on too much sugar. While she is controllable, you can tell it has a short wheelbase and wants to just maul every corner you throw at it.

My M3 in its current configuration feels tame and docile compared to the adjudicated 1M. This by no means I am saying it is a slouch. The M3 feels more like an extension of what you are thinking. In addition, when you hit sport and the intake flap start opening sooner it is like a angry beast shouting "MOOOOVVEEEEEE" at everyone. In the corners, it feels more composed with the only complaint is the DSC kicks in a little too soon.

Spirit

Both are M cars and at least to me have the motorsport heritage. The 1M definitely was BMW saying to the enthusiasts crowd, "Yes we can still make these cars, so shut it". As one of my buddies who drove it said, this is what the current E9X M3 should have felt like. (He had 2 by the way).

The M3 you can tell was BMW giving the US a car that was equal to what was in Europe. You can feel the translation of all the little quirks into the car the race developers had. I am E46 M3 bias but it feel the car has a lot more soul than modern cars accept the 1M. That car has one as well.

Wavos

1M is a boosted car and with a little tweaking, you get 450hp easy. The car does not need more power unless you are our drag racing other cars. The power it has for the track and street is more than enough to melt tires and have a grin from ear to ear.

In order to get my M3 to the same level as the 1M it took money. A stock E46 M3 to me seems tame and restrained. Almost like BMW said "down simba" as it whipped the lion into shape. Probably why they made the CSL to let the lion out to go maul a few Audi's and Porsche's. With all the changes I have done I feel the car is what it should have been from the factory. While not as fast in a straight as the 1M it does have no issue in the twisty back roads.

Dear Adam,
I've read all this thread - awesome!!!
got a few questions concerning my own m3 e46 setup , I've just purchased.
First of all, i would like to install that BBK kit. The question is, will it suit my OEM 18" 67 style rims? in the nearest future I'll get those CSL rims, but the BBK kit must fit both wheel sets.
Secondly, didn't you weigh your CSL rim with tyre? the problem is that my car was purchased on BBS CH 19'' wheels - and the weight of rear rim with tyre is more than 21 kilo.... wanna change em for CSL ones. so if CSL is light weight - i won't hesitate to get them.
Thank you in advance,
gonna follow your thread

Thank you for the compliments.

To answer your questions, I am not sure the BBK will fit your rims. Each BBK fits a little different. Stoptech you can run a 18 if you get the right offset rim. OEM 18's to my knowledge will not accept any BBK. But I would double check on that.

If you are trying to get a lighter rim, then look at APEX or other brands. 19;s weigh more than 18's.

I am looking at getting a set of 18' APX AC7's to use for drives and track days. They are lighter and fit my BBK.
