I couldn't agree more. I've noticed quite a few people on this site writing in jibberish...makes me want to visit the site less and less.
Maybe you should!!:D


I remember back in the day, when BMW released the SMG with the M3 they had a lot of issues with the transmission. Mostly coz it was a new concept to most drivers as a result ended up being abused. Am assuming the warranty would cover such damage?

I have noticed this too!!

By the way do u need a new transmission or it just needs some tuning? Can you please clarify and feed us with some more info when you know anything about it?

Maybe the mods aren't a good idea after all, or is it the way you drive? I would hate to buy expensive stuff just to mess up my car.

What intake and exhaust do you have installed?

A couple of the "problems" he is describing are already known by a lot of people. The Blitz throttle controller says right in the manual/on the box to consider using the reverse overide switch so that when you put the car in reverse it doesn't "surge" (or have a "big kick"). No secret here. Also, it no secret to any of the IS-F owners that when in "D" and you floor it on the highway there is a slightly longer transition between gears than with most automatics. A dealer with an active "F" champion would recognize these things pretty quickly. :D

We have a blitz throttle controller we put on our IS-F for a day or two with the Joe Z exhaust and intake, "oh what fun!" :eek:

So does adding the throttle control VOID THE WARRANTY, especially on the tranny?

I had asked this in another post but it was not answered

It's just like any other aftermarket part. If that part is a direct result of a breakdown, than it will not be covered under warranty. If you're ever in doubt of an aftermarket part and worried about your warranty, don't install it. Always research parts you are considering installing to make sure they are reputable and minimize problems.

Does it take longer to shift when you floor it in D because of the 8 gears? my local dealer didnt let me test drive one so I am not sure how it is

I can say is that when in D mode the car is usually at the highest gear close to the speed you're traveling. So it takes a while for the torque to build up. However, if you want the quick pick up from the torque have some fun in manual mode, but at the risk of paying out more money for fuel.
