Hello, I stop at traffic light when I see one although people keep honking & I totally Ignore eveyone lol
well that happened to my older car at 12 thousand kilometers but because I used 92 with JB4 (tune) and that was completely wrong, then it happened in my dad's F10 same engine he uses only 92 but that happened at 18 thousands kilometer after a bottle of system clean it doesn't show up at all, in my recent car since I use Octane or use 95 never had this message at all & doing over 19 thousand so far.

I've read it's a design flow in a certain part of system & caused by bad fuel but don't rush & get a cleaner as your car is still new check with dealer first & tell us updates..
btw how do you drive your car so far ?! aggressive, gently ?! because that might lead to that.

Well a mix of both but mostly gently and always under 4500 rpm , i use 92RON without any tune .

Someone just told me if you floored it from the 1st day it is still not acceptable to have a drivetrain at 700 km

of course try changing the gas station maybe the fuel you used is very bad, do you get sluggish acceleration ? does the car hesitate between 2500 to 3500 ?

So i got a call from a service manager , he finally told me whats going on , he said the problem was related to turbo and its caused by lower air pressure than normal . He said we checked the wiring and it should be ok .

Well it had to happen but that soon is a bummer

All the more reason to invest in downpipe FMIC OCC Exhaust then

Looks like I will do this sooner than I though

Still on the fence with suspension tweaks as I don't want to ruin the car ride on our bad roads or induce a problem with wheel alignment

Maybe brake pads and brake performance liquid like u did Rusty

Anything to make the car exciting if there will be a 330 with 270 hp

I've read a post on H&R vs. Dinan they said Dinan springs is not lowered & less aggressive than H&R but someone noted H&R is more quality product, we need to read more about Dinan though. still I am convinced that the ride will be better than it was stock in current setup with wide+none run flats, I'll wait and see when tires are worn.

If I'm gonna sell the car, It will be for 340i not for a re-badged 328i, still I am curious why was the life span of N20 engine was very short

It should work without coding, if you have the mirror select button to the right side the tight side mirror will tilt down while reverse. If the mirror select button is to the left no tilting will happen.

The left side mirror will not tilt when reversing in either setup ,I think it's because you can already see the curb without need to tilt
