335i EWG Pulling Timing

I have a FBO 335i EWG. Charge, boost, 5" FMIC, DV+, Catless DP. I have replaced spark coils and I replaced Bosch spark plugs with Bosch spark plugs gapped at .03. The timing is all over the place and I think I'm getting micro-knock.
Would NGK 2 step colder @ .024 - .022 would solve my issues?

Also is 0.1/0.2 knock a micro knock?

I didn't do WOT because it's already pulling timing in regular driving.

Any advice is welcome.

None of those logs help tell us anything. You need to do a 4th gear pull starting from 2500 rpms to 6500 rpms. But if you are 6speed Manual trans then do a 3rd gear pull. Do some searching in this forum for logging tips. thejeremyman9 wrote an extensive post on how to log and how to read a log. Please read all the information thats available to you and then post some proper logs for us to give you proper feedback.

everything you're seeing is normal. timing is never a consistent thing, its fluid at partial throttle. so during normal driving its going to be all over the place.

so get the thought of something being wrong out of your head and move on to WoT runs and let's take a look then.

For OP, here is my thread/post to read:

https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1732327

Give it a good read through, maybe twice, then come back with 1-3 WOT pulls in 3rd/4th gear as described there.
