Going to Try Resonator Delete

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I have a 2013 F30 335i sportline with MPE and just a basic aFe oiled drop in filter. I've taken out my JB4 stage 2 after it fried my DME costing me 1.2 months of no vehicle anger beyond belief at those idiots at BMS who apparently even though have test F cars for their JB4 still have not done enough R&D into their product.

I'm done tuning period. What's the point in pushing a luxury sports compact to the limit when the M4 is already out? The more aftermarket crap you the more you have to part it out or it will depreciate your resale we all know this.

Lesson learned I shouldn't have skimped out and should have went M3! But by now I'd want the M4 haha.

Well back to the topic:

So I hear mixed mesages about Akrapovic Evolution exhausts versus the Meisterschaft GT Haus. I love the sound of both but I had how theres that obnoxious split in between the tailpipe on the Mesiterschaft!

Which would you F30 N55 owners go with if money was not an issue?

I'm going to straight pipe my rear resonator hopefully waken up my MPE a tad...

Hmm maybe that's why so many people dislike BMW drivers....maybe because of remarkably smart ass people such as yourself are somehow allowed to procreate on God's wonderful planet.

It was a simple question I don't see why you would need to bring up a past incident that was for a fact caused by BMS's product.

Since then Terry has stepped in and helped ease my burden a bit. If it was your vehicle with only at 18k miles with my issues that happened due to the JB4 short circuiting the DME I would not be so quick to blurt out such a moronic remark.

I thought BMW or any automotive forums are basically where people help each other out or give advice/instructions/how tos not place where your comment does no one any good Terry or myself.

Ever hear that saying "if you don't have anything good to say don't say it at all?" All I said about BMS was my own personal experience with his product and after 3 BMW dealership visits having to be towed to each one separately and also visiting two aftermarket BMW tuner shops including one that carries the JB4 they all said the same thing:

my wiring was done perfectly they did not see any fraying or stripped wires....it must have been something more towards the DME that caused the short whether it be a fluke 1 in a million chance or a bad connection who knows? But when a BMW dealer gives you a loaner to drive for an entire month while they troubleshoot that says a lot about the damage or the cause of the damage don't you think?

What? Dude was just being cheeky and facetious.

Besides...you brought up the BMS stuff your original post, OP. You're the one who went off on a tangent and ranted on something that had nothing to do with your thread title. Hell, I'm waiting for you to spout off on me now for this response.

Pay to play, quit your bitching about BMS, you knew full well that putting an aftermarket chip or tune on your car that things could have gone wrong.
Owning a fast car, stock or otherwise there is no guarantee. You shouldn't badmouth BMS unless they made no efforts to help you.
You're the perfect candidate for Dinan or MPPK.

I'd like to know how your resonator delete goes. I'm contemplating this myself but don't know how this will affect warranty.

I did a res delete on my stock exhaust and love the sound. It burbles on downshifts and just sounds amazing. Best $80 I spent.

I've heard res delete with MPE sounds even better so I would personally try it out before shelling out thousands for one of those exhaust systems

Absolutely worth it. I did mine and it sounds great. Quite when cruising and screams when in sport mode. No drone with res delete, unlike muffler deletes.

If half of you are so quick to jump on the BMS team be my guest. I'm sure Terry is an excellent tuner seeing how many units he has pushed out without problems. Yes I pay to play and I did didn't i? I was alerting other enthusiasts that happen to have a 2013 F30 N55 to be wary because even 2 SA's mentioned the jb4 as the culprit affecting the 335i and 535i.

Can you people just take heed from someone else's suffering so that you guys or newer members like myself know what potential dangers and prices will cost to repair certain items by running a tune?

Truth of the matter is yes his product damaged my DME. Many people don't believe me...do you want me to scan the bill from Advantage BMW? Or the loaner from Woodlands BMW I had for a month because they were trying their best to not replace the DME.

This is not my first vehicle I've modded. In fact this is the only vehicle I've had with just a couple of mods...jeez I try to warn people of what may happen and all of a sudden I'm the bad guy.

Shows how arrogant and heartless some of you are. Who are you to say I have no business modifying whatever I own? It's ny car my money my life my enjoyment, but I do feel the public responsibility to alert others of what occurred to my vehicle.

And all I did was ask a basic resonator question...you guys sure know how to welcome new comers. I would never treat another BMW driver the way you assholes just mouth off behind your computer...

Even in EcoPro mode on low revs?
Good to know, I've got the MPE #340 and thinking about removing resonator...

LOL this guy, this is like the 3rd of 4th thread of him complaining about the same problem.... Apparently he EFFED up his own DME by touching the battery rail with the USB and didn't reground the car as stated in the install instructions. He also tried to lie to the dealership about the JB4 install lol. What a joker why do people still pay attention to him.

While dropping in mention about your "anger beyond belief at those idiots at BMS who apparently even though have test F cars for their JB4 still have not done enough R&D into their product" and how the JB4 fried your DME?

It is literally impossible for a piggyback tune to "fry" a DME given they do not have their own independent power source. It's like saying a cat-back exhaust caused your windows to malfunction.

You either completely botched the install or the DME was going to need replacement due to malfunction regardless of mods. These are BMWs, not Hondas. Bone stock ones break down and get lemoned left and right. It's just that yours was modded so it was a scapegoat.

Now back away from your car...

Ignoring all the noise.. In sport mode when accelerating aggressively there is a tad of low frequency rubmle, but only if you are gunning it and it is only in low RPM (1500-2200)
