However, I have tried all the different setting on my idrive, and I have messed around with the m-button but I cant figure out how to turn on(activate) MDM mode.

Is it true all M mode cars come with MDM? if so, can someone please help me figure out how to turn is on??

thanks
Hi not all cars come with mdm, but if you have it in the i drive menu and you have the m button, then you should be able to turn it on by pressing the m button, if you have specified the mdm in in the i drive menu....

So my question is, does anyone know which part number corresponds to the "stronger/more powerful" power steering pump. There are several different ones:

№ Beschreibung Supplement Teilenummer S. Datum E. Datum Gewicht Price
01 Lenkhilfepumpe 32 41 2283041 2008/06 1,890 kg € 420,00
01 Lenkhilfepumpe 32 41 2283003 2008/06 2010/07 1,790 kg € 425,46
01 Lenkhilfepumpe 32 41 2283002 2008/06 1,790 kg € 504,00

By the way my m3 is a european model, since i am living in europe .

Hope someone can help me out on that.

Cheers

I don't believe that this is a matter of the pump not being able to deliver the "stiffer servotronic sport feeling". Remember, the stiffer steering is from LESS assist - the more assist, the easier the steering wheel is to move. It might be some other type of coding or programming issue causing this problem. We can adjust the servotronic steering tightness in any M3, whether it is equipped with M-Drive or not.

Ecu tuning. There are multiple servotronic maps based on couple/sedan/vert, and comfort/sport/non-Mdrive car for a total of 9.

I really hope, i'll find the solution here. So far two coder claimed that they could code the mdm here in switzerland. The second coder checked the work from the first one, said everything was coded correctly, claimed he had coded everything again from scratch, but the servotronic switch to sport does not work. The second coder told me, i need a stronger power steering pump. If this could be solved without installing an additional part, i'd be more than happy.

So how to solve this issue? I have another meeting on Thursday with the coder, who "installed" the MDM on my M3. What must be done in order for the servotronic to switch to sport mode and become stiffer?

My M3 E92 is a manual trasmission with software stand Nov. 2009.

Or can someone here remotely help me out?

Regards

Stefan

Had the BPM retrofit installed on mine within the last few weeks. Very happy with it - definitely worth doing imo.
