     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi All, I am new to car tuning and I have read through the instructions but I am not sure I have all the cable in the correct places, does anyone have an install video link for Active 8 Module in a F30 N26? Thanks, and Yes i searched google and this forum first.

Yes. I was hoping for some better pictures, those low res black and white photos make it very hard to find.

Not sure what you mean but most cables only mate together if they match. From what I remember, all 4 of the cables were different so it's highly unlikely that you plugged them into the wrong places if they click together.

Looking at your sig I see your located in Nj, we have a decent size group that makes frequent drag strip trips, I live close to Island drag-way up near Great Meadows, NJ 07838. And we sometimes make trips to Atco.
If your ever down for some test and tuning this is the group you want to be apart of. We are actually trying to get some guys together for this Friday to go to Island...
