That makes no sense.

Truth.
My '14 N47 automatically switches to Comfort Mode when DSC is held down for several seconds.

I was referring to the suspension. Its whole idea is to be used is sport setting when driving in Sport/Sport+ mode (with and without stabilisation assistance). That is where it makes sense.

It's been discussed at great length - not every model
acts the same in various modes - but in mine when using sport + the suspension is not as tight as it is in sport. But it's ok, the b8's I have are doing their job.


Today was the first day of driving around in rear wheel drive for the first time and the car is definitely a lot more agile overall. Turns are more fun and more precise it seems, giving the car more throttle is more fun, the car doesn't seem to be working as hard, not sure why it just seems more efficient. Since I don't need x-drive it would be nice to have it removed for weight saving but I have no idea if that's practical.

Great App!

The Adaptive suspension in F3x (which is not air-suspension) has only 2 settings - Comfort and Sport. In both of them it dynamically readjusts (it is claimed), but there is no third setting that is "less tight".

When switching from Sport to Sport+ I don't feel any difference in the suspension.

What? Why not start with a RWD car? Nationally averaged it is a less expensive purchase than AWD, and when you are done with it you still have a car that appeals to normal buyers.

Some of us don't have an option.
F31 here came standard with xdrive and no way to delete it.
I would certainly have picked a rwd model if available

In those xdelete commercials both wheels are spinning when doing a burnout. Is it because this demo car is equipped with lsd? If I have an open diff and xdelete, will there be only one wheel drive? And under hard accel only one wheel will spin?

Anyway, a fun app. Would be interesting to know what actually they are modifying. I would feel somehow safer (or not) flashing it.

There's a different feeling going from Sport to Sport +. It might not be suspension, but maybe the steering, but definitely feels different somehow.

Yea but I suspect it'll even out again with all the added shenanigans!

Honestly wondering this too. M sports should've came with an LSD imo, but I'm looking to put one on my car. As long as the final drive ratio is the same we should be fine, even in AWD mode.

Flashed xDelete a couple of weeks ago and my car has been performing great in RWD only configuration. 2015 F30 Msport package.

I also used an old Iphone 6 running iOS 10.x.x, can't remember exactly which right now, but it worked great and had no problem recognizing the ethernet. I used these from Amazon as well to hook everything up.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Overall car is quick and definitely kicks in traction control now during hard acceleration in which it never did in the AWD configuration. No funny noises and is fun to drive with the DSC off, as well over 2,000 miles driven since the flash.

Spent years in the Japanese RWD cars (300zx, RX7 and an old 77 Celica) and I was missing that somewhat so this helps scratch that itch.

It does snow considerably here in Utah, so I will be switching back when it does, but it's great for fair weather driving for sure.

Our cars have a faux LSD programmed into the abs system. It clamps down slightly on the rotors to keep both wheels spinning.

Anybody have an additional slightly long term reviews? Any issues? Check engine lights? Trans warnings?

Zero issues, put about 10k miles already and had to flash black to AWD as winter is coming

No idea why people are so skeptical, it's by the same guys who does xhp trans flashes.

I did the initial flash with 0 problems

I flashed back to awd because of my narrow winter wheels spinning out to easily. This took 5-6 tries and could not figure out why, but it eventually worked

Tried flashing back to rwd with some nice weather, spent 30ish minutes and could not get it to work at all. Just a constant "error consult manual" but the manual is not helpful at all with troubleshooting.

Weather is crappy again so at least it didn't get stuck in rwd instead of AWD. Hopefully an update to the app will fix this

iPhone x, ios 13.1.3

Only If you count the ability to light up the rears, better steering feel and improved fuel economy 'an issue'.

Is anyone else having issues to Flash with an iPhone on iOS 13.1.3 with v1.1.20 (Or even the previous xDelete version)?

I haven't been able to connect (even with today's latest update shown), and the "Ethernet" tab pops up, then goes away a few times.
Suspecting this iOS Version isn't recognizing the dongle/obd2 correctly

It was fun but less quick off the start and I started to really miss that, since most my driving is around the city and short trips.
