I have also deleted the swirl flaps :-) its a must in this engine.. I would love to have the carbon interior trims, but too expensive for me right now :-(
and 19x10 isnt too big :-D but LMs are def. better

hey did you unplug the AGR valve too? I tried this on my car but it gave me an error. I heard it's just possible with all 330D before 2004, right?

hey, I tried it about a year ago, but it also threw out an error, so I put it back.. but I plan to blind the egr valve before I go on chip-tuning, and the guy should delete that error ;-)

i've unplugged EGR valve for a year now and, besides check engine icon, nothing at all is going on... as far as I know, in the cars manufactured before 06.2003 there was other egr valve installed and the egr error didnt make the check engine icon to light up. But the error doesnt affect engine work at all

Damn.. You Euro guys should ship me some silver cube trim for the interior and M door sills.

My touring and I will greatly appreciate it, but my wallet won't :/

that's the point of taking care of Your engine to be not surprised btw Ive got an interface and I check my car once a month ;] I also think, that most problems would affect the way Your car ride, so U could feel it without even looking at the dashboard ;D

Polonez: yea you're right, but I just would be nervous about that icon shining on the dash all the time..:-D
And honestly, does it make that big difference? I was last week in one service to get the injectors cleaned and checked out, and they cleaned also the egr valve (in ultrasonic), it looked like brand new, so i should unplug it until its clean :-)

I felt the difference, but the most important thing was to keep my intake manifold clean Maybe I just got used to the shining icon
to not spam, I'll post 2 pics of my winter setup on 16x7" (hahaha soooooo wide;P) with 15mm spacers front and 25mm rear


cheers guys and merry christmas!

Man, I really want some M68's for my car, it would go great with my M-Tech 1 bumper.

I was going to, but the 9-s will not clear the front fender without pulling it. They would clear perfecly with a summer tire, but the large thread of the winter tires makes them stick out more.
