In Northern NJ? Have the CDV mod?

I just took delivery of my 2008 335i coupe. I love it to death, but I'm having some difficulties with any consistency in the 1-2 shift. I've been driving manuals all my life and I don't believe it's a matter of experience.

After doing some research, I found a lot of information that may suggest the CDV being the culprit. I'm considering replacing the CDV, but am hesitant to do so without getting a sense of what it would be like without it!

So - if you have a 335i coupe or sedan w/ a swapped out CDV, live in or around West Orange NJ, and you're willing to let me drive your car for 2 minutes, there's a 6 pack in it for you!

I might be able to help you out. Although very busy until after Christmas. The difference is not that great except that you don't grind on quick shifts between 1st and 2nd. I came from an s2000 with a quick tight gear box. I was grinding all the time with 335I on quick shifts. I never grind now. I work in Denville NJ....not to far from you.

Hi CookieMonster,

Thanks for the offer. I may take you up on it! I'm in and around the Denville area (Denville/Randolph/Whippany) and all throughout the Rt 10 corridor quite often.

After Xmas, I'll PM you to see if we could possibly set something up and to find out what kind of beer you like. (Assuming that I haven't already just gone ahead and had the swap done!)

Thanks again.

No beer needed...although Corona is so yummy....just happy to help. Let me know. If during the week lunch time works best. Maybe the 26th 27th or 28th
I have flexible lunch time.....let me know! Or if at night we can meet up somewhere on route 10.
