Hi All,

New owner of lease return 2009 335i coupe with 36k miles. It's been 18 years since my last BMW - 1973 2002tii. Needless to say things have changed a little, although grin factor in backroads remains

So far I've done golf tee mod (by disconnecting the connector in trunk).

I'm coming from a 2004 Audi A6 2.7T (twin turbo), so I'm familiar with modding a turbo and I just ordered BMS DCI and am considering JB4 and DP's.

Looking forward to learning lots on this forum. A few (noob) questions:

1. For the HPFP recall, do you have to wait for symptoms or will it be replaced w/o symptoms at my next schedule dealer service (at 45 k miles)
2. Should I remove the DCI when I take to dealer?
3. I know catless DP's would help performance, but I won't pass smog test right? Would I then have to replace stock DP's every two years for smog test?
