I would say its a must for any n55. Changes the character of the car's sound in so many ways.

Please do! I'm always wondering how it works out for other people with different mods.

Not a fan... Sorry. Excessive popping like that, just doesn't fit the profile of these cars IMO...

I'll try and make some time. I'm wrapping my interior a different color now.

And for the two above me, why comment if you don't like it? What a waste of time

I dont think the popping is excessive (just from the videos, haven't heard it in person), considering this is something that is offered as a performance kit from BMW, IMO it does "fit the profile of these cars".

It is also completely reversible, so definitely worth the try.

At least in my N55 it isn't excessive by any means. It only does it at certain rpms.

And how does one get this flash? It's sick I like it. It's mentioned that it is reversable, can we change it back on and off when ever we want ?

So your car is FBO no Cobb no JB4 just PPK? Trying to understand if PPK covers the area that Cobb cannot cover...

Sounds good IMO!!

Head over to N54tech you'll find it in the N55 section. It's free and you need a DCAN cable and Windows laptop. It is irreversible, just put your jb4 on map 0 or if you have the Cobb, uninstall it.

My thoughts exactly. Everybody has their own opinion and thats fine. I just wish it popped even more LOL. If you heard it in person when you downshift and bring the rpms up to 4k, you'll definitely think its excessive. Thats exactly the way I want it

Just to clarify, car is FBO including tune, which is JB4. The only think this tune does is gives you off-throttle pops and downshift pops like the newer n55's (e.g. M235i) It also makes shifts faster (if you have an auto).

I don't have FBO but I have Alpina TCU flash, PPK(OEM) and jb4 and while it doesn't sound as crazy as yours because I don't have DPs, it sounds fuckin good.

Who did it for you? I'm looking to get this done either myself or remotely. Can anyone post a DIY?

I looked at the N54Tech, the thread about this.

I think Cobb users can get benefits from it too, but we seem to have to send the new ID to Cobb and stuffs... Probably need to reinstall access tuner race also, with a different ID.

I wanna give t a shot though Anyone helps
