I feel I should use my COBB device to put it into VALET MODE.

Is that pretty simple?

And simple to put my custom tune back in once I get the car back?

thanks in advance, Kevin
Sorry, let me understand this... You're Cobb tuned...

But you don't know how to change maps?

LOL. Got my Cobb and a custom tune 2 yrs ago. With 400hp plus, I was happy, threw the device in my desk and never looked back.

Very busy with kids and career, sorry.

Changing maps must be simple, I just YouTube'd it...

Uninstall=unmarry but in order to install on your friends car you need to download the correct maps and firmware for i8a0s from the Cobb site onto your ap

NO MAPS ON DEVICE.

I am having my car transported (relocation) and went to change map to VALET MODE. However, after it sync'd w/ the ECU, the screen only stayed 'gray'.... nothing (no maps) came up in the change map screen. Could my tuner have wiped everything when he sold me the Cobb before he tuned my car and saved my custom file on the device?

(the custom file looks to be the only thing on the Cobb device and has been running just fine on my 335i) Oh well, no valet mode for this transport

any feedback appreciated!

New to this tuning.... I have Cobb AP and installed stage 2 sport LT to clear dp codes. Struggling with misfires now on hard pulls. What are the difference between a stage 1 Vs stage 2? Have DCI, catless DP, no FMIC yet.

You can download ap manager from cobbs website and uplaod all the maps. Just make sure they are the right one for your ecu.

Hey Guys,

Used the forum search and was directed here.

Car: 08 335xi 6-MT Coupe

Mods: Cobb Stg 1 Agg and DCI's.

Issue: Car is sputtering in higher gears 4-6th, I'm thinking the coil packs need to be changed but I wanted to see if I could do some Data Logging with the AP and see if i can tell exactly which coil (if it's just one) is giving me the issue.

Question: What parameters should I set the Cobb for Data Logging, Ignition? and Boost? Just curious what other people's data logging experiences were and what methods they used for diagnosis.

Thanks Buds!

first thing to do is read the fault codes (if any). If no codes then follow the sticky on the N54 main page for diagnosing misfires. first step is to move coil pack to another cyl. if the misfire follows then it's the coilpack. next step is to move the spark plug. again, if it follows it's the plug. if it doesn't follow it is probably an injector.

Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately it isn't throwing any codes so I don't know which coil/spark plug it could be. I changed the spark plugs 12K ago so they aren't that old.

Have you ever had the intake valves walnut shell blasted?

Hey quick question I run Stage 2 custom map with COBB. Does COBB Block Read Access to DME when tunned such as EDIABAS/INPA ? Don't know if it is my setup but can't communicate with my DME via INPA MSD80. Want to ask before I unsintall COBB and test this without COBB. I can communicate fine with my e46 m3 so not my INPA setup at least don't think so.

Hey cobbers, quick question:

1- how to reset adaptations with V2 ?
2- My cyl 3 shows slightly different behavior in timing than other cyls, this is the same cylinder that had oil in leaking from valve cover gasket that I replaced last month ... any advise on what d the issue be now (put new plugs + cleaned coils and put dielectric grease)
3- had some issues datalogging, is there a limit to the # of parameters I can log ?

thanks
