Anybody going to Bimmerfest this year? Thinking about meeting up with locals for a drive to Cali the Friday before.

It's about a 3 1/2 drive if I'm not mistaken. If I leave Saturday morning, probably around 5:30 a.m. I have a feeling that it wouldn't be much traffic on the road, so I'm sure I'll cover a lot of ground quick and would get there earlier. Who drives the speed limit anyway these days? I'll keep you posted though as the time gets closer. Are you still in Utah?

I installed a Procede this last weekend. Everything seems to be working just fine besides 2 episodes of limp mode, but I think that was my own fault and driving habit at the time. Turned off the car, turned on and everything has run fine since.

My question is for an MSport car that is 6AT and only mods are DCI and Procede should I be running Stage 0 Map 1 or Stage 1 Map 1? Vishnus site specifies stage1 for unmodified or lightly modified cars. But then why have a stage 0?

Hey thanks for your reply. Yes, I still live in Utah. But I will be in Vegas for a work even that week and going straight from there to Bimmerfest.

Congrats on the tune. Im not familiar with the Procede but map 0 should turn the tune off (back to factory tune). Tune 1 like stated is for lightly modified.

Yeah that is all I can find. I can't find anything that talks about the specific differences between the Stages though. The newer 9-10 maps have Stages 0-3 available each with their own respective Maps.

Guess I will just have to open all the files in the tuning software and look through them.


Anything going on in Vegas this Saturday? I have to bring the car in for service and will be in the area.

Run stage 1. Map 0 is pass thru for timing, boost dc, fuel pressure and boost. The only thing that the Procede still does is bias the widebands to run slightly richer. The only reason they do this is to reduce the amount of afr/lambda adaptation the DME needs to go through when switching between map0 and a performance map. If you need to troubleshoot, you can remove that from the equation just be removing the yellow batch from the installation.

Thanks Manny! I have a feeling the only reason it went to limp mode was because I still had DTC on and tried to romp the skinny pedal after having been on cruise control. I read that the Procede will pull some timing if on cruise control long enough to improve MPG.

Anyone paint around here? I want to get a rear bumper painted space grey and I'm sure I can get it done cheaper than what e92-lighting is quoting. ;\

It'll always be cheaper to get it painted local. Most companies charge around $400 for bumpers and hoods. I got mine painted for $250 at Monument Collision.

You should be able to get it painted around $250 at most paint and body shop.
