My E90 335i

Get the car back tomorrow after being in with Stratstones for a week. Boot repaired and repainted, tyre pressure sensor replaced and coli packs and spark plugs replaced.

Cant wait for tomorrow especially as i now have a Burger Motorsport JB4 and intake kit on the way!

29e1 error code under "hard" acceleration. To be fair though, Specialist Cars in Luton are doing everything to cure it and must have spent a fortune so far. Coil packs replaced, spark plugs replaced, maybe new cats as well now! Should here back today on where they are with it.

Ooo,

Fuel mixture control sounds like a tricky one. Since it isn't coils or spark plugs, it'll either be an O2 sensor, injector(s) or HPFP.

I'd wait a few days and make sure the repairs are done right...don't want to have to rip all that shit out. Speaking from experience.

Me either, need to get it lowered as well and probably some spacers on the back. Got some i had on the e46 vert, wondering if they will fit.
