    Funny how a 55k car shifts like a used 91 Sentra.

    like i'd do this myself? lol

    still need to order the part :D


    i'm due for an oil change pretty soon, so i'm going to get the part and have the dealer put it in. They are dinan certified installer, so i'm pretty sure they can pull it off.

    There is such a thing as too many features. Any feature that takes control away from the driver (ABS, Trac Control, Rev Limiter, Governor, Clutch restrictor valves that make you shift like a 16 yo girl...) is NOT something I'm interested in having on my vehicle.

    a part of me wants to believe this...and another part of me says it's a BMW ricers scam. If your going to do it, then be ready to replace clutch disks at a faster rate.... all it is , is a restrictor added into the system, restrict the flow of the hydo fluid returning back to the res, and your feathering the clutch more than is needed...which causes more wear on the disk, and more heat. Drive a 4 or 6 puck disk setup, the faster it ingages, the snappier the driving....then drive a street disked car, and you will notice that it will take longer to grab....then shoot a lazer temp reader on the disk....heat and excessive wearing will trash disks like crazy, no heat, but yet a harsher "grab" will keep the temps down, and the wear to a minimum. Disk lasts longer.

    First.,...before you buy....see if the real guys that drive BMW's in Germany are using anything like this professionally....if they aren't, then your just getting sucked into a scam that might not be good for the car.

    in other words, $35 part, $500 to install, drive for 2 years and need clutch disk change that will cost over $1500 to do....or just learn to drive, drive for 4 years, and sell car for something better.

    i guess you didnt read the article. the mod is REMOVING that delayed engagement valve.

    BMW did it for 'smoother' driving, but if you know what youre doing, you look like an asshat when you drive. so now a company is releasing a valve that basically allows the driver to shift like its a normal car without that gay ass valve.

    actually, just the opposite.

    disadvantage to CDV removal? - Bimmerforums - The Ultimate BMW Forum


    no, WITH it, it slips more.

    if your left foot can't feel the pressure, then you don't deserve a shifting car. Learn to drive.
