Must just be the older ones, because I didn’t do any of those on either my 335GT or X3 35i. The 335 was flawless until I got rid of it with around 50k, and the X3 just blew its charge pipe and took...

Poor reliability of the engine? Since when? The N55 is pretty damn reliable for a turbo motor. I'd like to know what he considers unreliable about it. Sure, it'll pop the charge pipe occasionally,...

No. There is no more 320 or A4 Ultra. Both sucked and were killed. Theres still an A4 40 TFSI, which is still pathetic, but at least BMW no longer caters to the paupers. Thats why BMW and Mercedes...

It’s depends on the version. The early ones are trouble prone. The TUs drink oil. The TU2 and TU3 seem to be no more trouble prone than anything else, just way more expensive to fix when they fail.

I have NEVER heard of an N63 hydrolocking. Thats a 1st gen N63. Its likely the chain tensioners. They won't help you out because you didn't buy the vehicle new. I had the same situation with my 11...

On the iDrive screen, instead of the BMW text, it has an animated ///M logo. Nothing major, just something I like doing on MSports since BMW doesn’t.

Its not just the fuel pumps. 2011 is a pneumatic wastegate, 2015 is electronic. Your E90 doesn't have a way to control that. The plug isn't in the harness, and even if you used the new harness, the...

I'd guess its shifting at a particular speed. And since Map 0 has less power, it needs more rpm to hit that speed.

It’s supported, but really only in MAP 1. Same as all the other 21s. Until they release the wastegate harness adapters, we’re somewhat limited.

How are you running a Dinan Stage 2 AND JB4? I'm fairly certain that Dinan tune is NOT designed to be used as a backend flash. It already increases boost, which is what the JB4 is supposed to do.

What color smoke? On the N63, I'd immediately think of the valve seals. They were said to have been fixed with the TU, but that would still be the first thing I'd check.

Most of those issues are related to the platform. The E70 is OLD. If it doesn’t report stuff, the JB4 can’t read it. Not to mention that the E70 has the original N63, which is a ticking time bomb....

It was 2014 when the TU came out. I would have no problem buying a car with the N63TU, as long as it’s under 100k. If it’s over, I’d immediately swap the turbos and go through it carefully. I’d...
