I was being fair. All kinds of people own BMWs, and can want all kinds of upgrades for them. Not everyone is an automotive engineer with BMW specific experience to just make up a solution on the spot. And its not a negative to put up a post despite a low chance of it being successful. I'm an engineer myself, but don't have anywhere near the expertise to work through the ECU on my e90, so I would definitely pay for some sort of upgrade that would let me have some RWD fun on occasion.

So, which fuses are you removing to have both RWD and no wipers moving? Would you share a picture of your dashboard while running?

Also curious...

Did you managed to get RWD and not be bothered by the whippers?

tried pulling fuse 26 and 50 on 2008 bmw 335xi, and awd is disabled, this way the wipers won't come on, the only thing is christmas tree ligths up and turn signal is messed etc. i dont know if this does any harm to engine or electronics, just tried it out for 30 min, just put some nice stripes on the road.

I think LSD.. When your remove the wipers fuse everything doesn't works..
ABS, DTC, the odometer, the AWD systems...

Like douwe22 said the christmas tree lights up..

I don't recommend to remove those fuses for a long period.. just for a little bit of fun!

Sorry I wasn't clear. You're laying down 2 black stripes (if that is you in the video). So I was wondering if you had installed an aftermarket mechanical LSD like wavetrac, and if you haven't whether the e-diff was working or not. In order for the latter to happen ABS system must be functioning, which I think it isn't.

So anyway I was really wondering how you got those 2 black stripes with no e-diff, so must be LSD I guess.

I made no modification to the diff...

OK then that is very interesting. Because I doubt the e-diff system is still working if ABS is gone, or maybe it isn't?

Also I noticed the start of burn outs, almost like front wheels were getting braked separately like on a motorcycle. Do you think that was just the rear pushing against a dead front driveshaft and axles and loading them up a bit?

I hit just a little bit the breaks and after hit the gas and then the rear start to spin easily.... only the rear is working....the front diff is completely disengage.. if I correctly understand your question...

C'est pas vraiment que je veux "faire" coder mais j'aimerais plus quelqu'un qui prendrais 1hr ou 2 avec moi pour me montrer comment faire pour que je puisse le faire moi meme apres.

J'ai fais changer un module et apres reprogramatiin jai tout perdu le coding que javais... Et la je vais devoir encore avoir un sensor a changer avant l'hiver et encore une fois reperdre mon coding...

Jai malheureusement pas le temps de lire 40 pages et apres avoir commencer a lire un peu, je comprend pas trop et en plus il ya des problemes pour me connecter (pas le cable car cest le meme cable que jutilise pour le remote coding)

Donne moi les infos de ton gars de brossard et je verais si je peux arranger quelque chose avec lui.

Thanks
