Ok that’s great. Again a EV (other brands are available) uses a electric motor to drive the Aircon pump. An ICE uses the engine to drive the Aircon pump.

The filter makes it the air coming into the car clean regardless if the Aircon is on or not. And many different types of filter exist. So what is confusing about EV ?

Telsa use a big HEPA filter similar to a dyson and market it well…. Again you asked about Aircon but I think when you said EV you mean Tesla and you also mean HVAC. There is one filter for a car, whether the Aircon pump is on or not it makes no difference to the filtration medium of the airfilter filtering air coming into the cabin

Teslas actually clean the air of /everything bad/ that goes through the system, other cars just fiter out the most obvious particles and odours. The activated carbon cabin filter will block out more than your boggo standard filter, but that depends on the car and what the owner chooses to have fitted (typically the boggo one because it's a few quid cheaper....).

Tesla has the addition of what they call Bioweapon Defence mode which does exactly as it sounds.


They call self driving self driving too…

Military grade attack. Hahhahahahahah

Filter for life installed :D



Not a massive improvement in terms of noise or anything but a requirement for the remap I'm going with.

Could have saved some cash and just put the plastic bag directly over your head

Edit: oof, that did sound much more aggressive than intended :cry::cry::cry:

Mountune m330 map, only took them an hour to send the map to me after plugging in the dongle and sending the car config to them.



SmartFlash v2 has some performance logging features so it will be cool to try those out. A nice increase in mid-range, boost upped to 13psi to 20psi but no noticeable increase in lag, impressed so far.

Not today but had a jolly old time retrofitting the individual audio, cic navigation system and M3 seats into my E92 335d. Also put the LCI steering wheel in cos why not.

Before:

Is there a back story to this one?

Poor maintenance on my mums behalf. I got fed up of telling her to service her cars so this is how it ended up. I’ve got a spare engine so I’ve popped that in. I’ll drive it for a bit then decide to either turn it into a cheap track car until the Mk2 is finished or flog it.

You didn't even have to go anywhere?
I'm trying to resist getting mine remapped with a Revo tune
