Have you tried aligning your steering angle sensor?

And a correct tune even with advancing cam timing you can change the values the cam position sensors look at for a normal value

Off topic but how is a quick release wheel worth none of the airbags working?

Since the SES light is always on how do you guys know if there is something else wrong with the car? Are you guys periodically checking using some sort of diagnostic tool??? Sorry if this question has been asked before... Im kinda interested in the stage 2 kit but wanted to see what some of you guys are doing..

EDIT: Sorry for not searching 1st but I found this:

The CEL (check engine light) light still works when there's a major malfunction in the engine even with our turbo systems. All of the necessary lights for major problems still work such as brake service, high coolant temps, low oil level, etc. The "SES" light shows sensors or modules that test out of range. The factory DME is no longer seeing those sensors. Generally speaking, with our turbo kits when something goes bad such as a coil pack, you know it because under boost you hear the car sputter. Then we get a call and send the customer new coil packs if they request them. If a crank sensor goes bad, your car will often mis-fire and sometimes not run, and you'll have to replace the crank sensor. A vanos can go out and start throwing codes in which case the car will still run but it will be down on power. The benefit of the SES light is that you can find out about some of these things as the sensors are starting to read out of range and get them fixed before you notice them. The drawback to having the SES light on all the time is that you will ignore these alerts and will notice the problem while you are driving the car. Either way, you'll have to replace whatever goes bad. The worry is that you might get stuck somewhere when you wouldn't have otherwise. So far our customers haven't reported problems to us that an early SES light would have changed anything.

The good news is, you can still check the codes unrelated to the engine operation.

Chris.

Honestly, I'm surprised that with all of the crazy tuning and modifications done to M3's, a simple SES light can't be turned off. My friends WRX has no SES light despite having a 3.5'' turbo back. OpenSource FTW.


We need OpenSource for BMW.

My E39 has a full stand alone, DME is removed completely. The SES is off because it has no DME to tell it to turn on. The HFP kits still retain the stock DME for VANOS on the S54. The light turns on because of all the other missing messages that the DME isn't seeing because AEM EMS is handling that part(which Chris already went over)

That sore thumb for a gauge can be integrated into your rear view mirror here http://www.radar-mirror.com/AEM.html

i love your innovation of the rear view mirror gauges but what would be ideal is a HUD. the mickey mouse ears block the instrument cluster and the mirror gauges are all the way in your upper right peripheral... neither is ideal.

That sore thumb is in the perfect position. Doesn't block a thing, I do like the mirror idea though but it's not for me
