Euro 330i Bumper Bar

What: As on the former car, I replaced the heavy N American rear bumper bar with a svelte Euro-spec 330i bumper bar to lose an easy 11 lbs while taking zero hits in daily driveability and safety.

Euro 330i bumper bar part # 51127058467

RealOEM

DIY: BMW Rear Bumper Replacement

Why: Losing weight directly improves all driving dynamics. Also, I prefer the dynamic agility of a ~290 Hp 3250 lb car to a 500 Hp 4000 lb car.

Results: Less mass = less inertia -> more fun. In anticipation of some who argue 10 lbs is insignificant, I would remind them that the process is cumulative. I've dropped 150 lbs since taking delivery, including nearly 40 lbs of unsprung, rotational mass.

Subscribed! Looking forward to updates with a proper wagon.

Also, I did the same drive to Yellowstone and loved it.

Sorry to hear about the damage! Glad you were able to pick up a replacement so quickly though. The new car looks great

Thanks for the support over the years, ECS. You've been a solid vendor. I have a few parts in the queue I need to order.

I still love your screen name... The irony is that we drove so much that our actual time in Yellowstone Park was around 2 hours. Classic mission creep. That's fine. I'll just need to make the drive out again, with gear to spend a few days. Final tally was: 6 Western states in 7 days and around 2500 miles at sustained German Autobahn speed (when safe and appropriate)

Thanks, Matt. Apex has been another strong vendor for me. I'm a big fan of the unique combination of style and hyper light weight. Keep up the strong work!

OEM 330i DME SW Install

What: This morning I loaded OEM 330i DME software on my MSV80 N52.

How cool is that?

Why: Activate the 3IM DISA for a bit more low/midrange TQ and power output, without downsides to reliability and safety

Results: Car feels faster than a ZR1 'Vette or Camaro...

Thanks to many forum members who made this possible!

Indeed, it was great to see Dan Bilzerian & work with BimmerGeeks.

Shout out to Terraphantm for being there to answer a quick question on Tetsuo's car!

Can't wait for the valve lift mod now!

Forgive my ignorance, is this 330i DME software in lieu of a tune or bc it is OEM, can you perform a tune (eg BPC tune like you did previously) on top of this?

Kudos to the teamwork that it took to make this happen.
