Default BMS n20 Stage 1 Installation - 10-06-2017, 04:08 AM

Hi there!
First of all, excuse my english, it's not my main language.
Need some help on installing BMS n20 Stage 1. I purchase a BMS n20 Stage 1 kit from reseller in Russia.
My car is 2013 BMW 320i GT x-drive, n20 engine 184hp.

It has four pairs of patches - rainbow, brown, blue and purple.
I found two kinds of installations guides on burgertuning.com.
One for BMS n20 Stage 1 - kit in the instruction looks different, newer version, I suppose.
Other for BMS n20 Stage 1 and JB4 - no kit photo inside and some strange recommendation not to use purple patch.

So, my questions are:
1. Did I get correct kit? Wich version it is?
2. Where can I get the correct installation instruction? Installing TMAP (rainbow) and MAP (brown) is ok. But I cant understand should I use (and connect) MAF (purple) and waste gate patch (blue), a couple of power wires (Red, black), CAN bus (green, brown).

Pls see images of the kit and waste gate:

Will highly appreciate your help, guys!

the box doesnt look like the stage1 similar to what 3 friends obtained, like a year ago.

If making a lucky guess i would say that looks like an early pwg jb4 built while you have ewg

Herc, I think you are right.
Talk to dealer once again, looks like they didn't really know what they are selling. Will have to do a return.

Looks like a really old system, something we haven't sold in years.

Board housing doesn't have a screws to open it. Only some clips inside. So I'm afraid to damage it while opening, in this case I'll have a problem with refund.
Dealer is clearing the stock, selling this thing with 20% discount.

Terry, do you have an authorized partners in Moscow, Russia?
