At this open track day at TWS, no limp modes. I got a 30FF when I blew off an intercooler hose at MSR 3 weeks ago, and I got a Vanos inlet code for which I replaced the solenoid.

You're right, I have an agenda to promote the 335i. You caught me.

I've been nothing but detailed in what limp modes and what problems my car has had, and what has solved them. There is way too much "the car just can't do X" type crap here. It is definitely temperamental but it seems to me these issues are fixable. I'm going to another open track day in 2 weeks, guess we'll see if another 2 hours of track time in 4 hours can break the car.
