Just dropped you a pm Mike
Ye just make sure your laptop isn’t from the 90s
Had my car remapped sunday evening, remote remap, CSL rev match and inertia update. The whole process was smooth and took about 20-30 mins despite a weak Wi-Fi signal in the garage! I have a standard airbox and had insp 2 with shims done last month.
Firstly, it was a pleasure to work with Mike, he explained everything I asked him about. The remote remap itself was uneventful, I was worried about how it is done, would their be any hiccups along the way etc.. but everything went smoothly.
I have only managed to take the car out today since the remap.
My first impression was that she was not grumpy this morning, hardly any kangarooing when cold. I then filled her up with 99 ron and took the 45 min drive to work.
The CSL rev match seems to work well, I can feel it working but have not had the chance to really see and feel it working to its potential, mainly due to traffic this morning!
The clutch is definitely smoother, seems to be less slur and it engages much quicker. I have not noticed any 'thudding' of the clutch at speed either.
The remap itself. There is a definite increase in power, I'm not really bothered how much bhp before and after. It just feels much better and smoother to drive! The car revs much more freely, the power is available lower in the rpm range now, and it seems that the power keeps on coming and coming until hit the rev limit. Feels like the car previously was being restrained and now wants to fly whenever it can and take you with it!
I haven't yet been able to go on a 'proper spirited' drive yet but I'm looking forward it !
I am very pleased with it all and a big thankyou to Mike for doing this.
Now get the CSL 255 Sw on the SMG
A pleasure mate. Enjoy.
What would be the benefits of the 255 software too?
Mike, is there a catalyst safe pops map? I 100% get why you should have a decat, but just wondering if there is a catalyst safe version given that we have 200 cell cats anyway, and modern cars come with them mapped in nowadays.
Had some good experiences with the Mtrack option in the first wet weather we’ve had since I bought the M3. Cheers Mike.
Not that it matters much but 3 weeks ish after having mine done i,m still happy with it and i,ve noticed i,ve gone from 21.9 to 22.1mpg before and i,m now at 23.9 to 24.1its not much but its a bonus
The main reason it doesnt work with cats is because it kills the sound, Its pretty much like having a toilet roll with holes in it in your exhaust lol and yes it is not good for them either.
Got ya, assumed it was about Catalyst durability, didn't appreciate it just dampened it out too. Shame, that's the one thing I'd like out of mine right now but don't want to go decats as the general exhaust note is good.
Its an update software for the smg found on csl, very smooth gear changes.
The really big change is in the Revmatch though, makes such a difference.
Have now had the MAP sensor in for a thousand miles, definitely worth going the extra mile with this, I reckon I could of done it myself but got Scotts to do it for me and glad I did, they’ve wired it in beautifully so it looks (nearly) factory. Driving on part throttle is notably better, a little smoother all round, best supplementary £100 I’ve spent. Now roll on the 3.91 with e36 diff that’s waiting to go on. Thanks again Mike.
