When is the exhaust flap activated...meaning when is it closed? start up and......idle across all engine temps? Even my mom noticed it when I started her up when I got it. She was like why does your car sound like that and why is only one exhaust tip emitting fumes? I'd like to hear it with the flap disabled. That might discourage me from stepping on the gas hard every time I drive haha. I am losing the battle against mpg on my first tank.

The first tank is always brutal. Back in 2000 I went two days on the first full tank

There are threads specifically for the golf-tee mod, do a search. I can't tell you at exactly what points the flap opens; WOT, 4500+RPM, something like that. The critical info is that it's closed at idle (all temps), cruise, and moderate acceleration.

Basically, it's usually closed.

First mods planned:

- painted reflectors
- BSH OCC

Hopefully the pic comes through, snapped it with my smartphone.

congrats! looks great. how do you like the 19" rims? i had them on order and then decided to remove them as i remembered how much i hated washing my friends e46 zhp car which had similar rims. very hard to get into!

your dealer received them late. i got mine on june 2nd. when did you put in the order?

Alpine White is *hawt*, looks awesome.

I finally got to wash the wheels (and entire car) today. Truthfully it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. They definitely take longer than the 230's I had before, but the only difficult part is cleaning the thin slit between the double spokes. I was able to stuff my dedicated wash mitt in there and get them clean, but some kind of tool would be better going forward.

I think I got spoiled by the 230's, those were ridiculously easy to clean.

Early January.

I had a 2010 M-Sport on order, but BMW stopped production by the time the dealership got a production slot - so my SA was nice enough to order an '11 "is" instead.

What ship were you on? I was on the Undine and it landed in Halifax on May 31. It takes some time to get from the east coast to Toronto.

Just noticed one thing last night that does not impress me at all with this car.It has the same Bridgestone Re050a runflats with a 140 wear rating just like the 07 car had.We only got 11000 kms out of them on 2 sets before changing to non run flats.BMW really needs to do something about that!

^^^ Weird, I got Pirelli P-Zero RFT's.

I also got 60,000+ km on the front Bridgestone's on the '07, with something like 7/32 and 6/32 of tread left as of November last year. The rears didn't fare as well but I can't give exact numbers as they were both replaced (under warranty) due to punctures.

Based on your avatar, it's probable that I'm not driving the car hard enough

Yeah I am a little hard on tires



My wifes car is never driven that hard.My M went 28000 on the stock PS2 19's and they were used twice on track in the wet.I usually go through track tires after 4-5 track days.

I used to get the Hoosiers as takeoffs and I loved them.I might have a line on 275/35 18's Continental takeoff's used in the Grand Am series.I am using RA 1's and am quite happy with them.I used R888's last year and they were total crap.Here is a pic after 3 hours of use.

Nice cars. So how does the overboost work? Is there a button? Can you use it from a complete stop?
