  1. "Tires not recognized"

    This isn’t a TPMS sensor issue, but an eTIS (intelligent RFID Tire) issue. Via the Texa RFID tool, the QR code on each tire is scanned to register the position and pair the RFID sensors to the car. They then communicate with the onboard systems
  2. Anyone have this ESC issue on track?

    eTIS/RDC and the associated issues that come with doing stupid shit. Misha should know better (or not pretend to be illiterate). Time to pull out the Texa and do the tire/wheel swap correctly.
  3. Is a manual transmission in the cards for the new Supra?

    Many maybes plus excellent slight of hand.
  4. BMW M Carbon Cermaic Brake Swap

    No. For starters, wrong PCD so the No. For starters, the pcd, centerbore, and rotor offset is different. F90 rotors would be similar, but would require a custom bracket as they are radial mount and the steering knuckle is different from the upcoming G8x M3/4. Finally there’s the brake servo...
  5. Steering rack failure...

    Didn’t properly position the steering column or reset the EPS lock position sensors huh? Then there’s this...
  6. Have a look at the Prototype Supra's engine

    If that were the case, you’d know how to distinguish between an ID5, ID5+, ID5++, ID6, ID6Lite, ID6+, ID6++, and ID7 HMI interface. The Supra has similar to ID7 HMI controls but they appear more like the Preh supplied Lexus pieces.
  7. Have a look at the Prototype Supra's engine

    The interior HMI controls are from Preh.
  8. Have a look at the Prototype Supra's engine

    BMW sourced engine? Yes Brake Calipers? Brembo Differential? ZF or GKN depending on equipment Interior? Grupo Antolin, Ficosa, Lear, Sparco, TRW, just to name a few. Suspension? Bilstein, ThyssenKrupp, and ZF Factory? Yes contract assembly by Magna-Steyr, they haven’t built an X3 in 2...
  9. 3rd gen G29 BMW Z4 (2019-202X)

    Probably press drives. BMW opened a huge Performance Center there a few years back and uses it as one of the “hubs” for demo/preview events.
  10. 3rd gen G29 BMW Z4 (2019-202X)

    TU (Moderate Technical Updates of those). Full M variant not totally ruled out...yet. I have a manual stick shift thanks, no provisions necessary...ya sick bastard ;)
  11. 3rd gen G29 BMW Z4 (2019-202X)

    Could’ve put a lil more effort into the joke...
  12. 3rd gen G29 BMW Z4 (2019-202X)

    I’d call them a cross between the current 2/3 Series and the current 4Runner/Highlander mirrors, scaled to fit the 29’s
  13. 3rd gen G29 BMW Z4 (2019-202X)

    Beware the Shochu. Gets me every time; pants or no pants
  14. 3rd gen G29 BMW Z4 (2019-202X)

    Buy it, use it, break it, fix it, Trash it, change it, mail, upgrade it, Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it, Snap it, work it, quick, erase it, Write it, cut it, paste it, save it, Load it, check it, quick, rewrite it Plug it, play it, burn it, rip it, Drag and drop it, zip, unzip it, Lock...
  15. 3rd gen G29 BMW Z4 (2019-202X)

    More boxy as you call it. The ovoid shape of the E89 wouldn’t meet today’s regulatory field of vision requirements without exceeding the vehicle width limitations while extended. The “29’s” are very wide and have rather tall hips, which means the mirrors have to be on rather lengthy arms to...
  16. 3rd gen G29 BMW Z4 (2019-202X)

    At least buy me dinner before trying the fingerbang. Jokes aside, I wear many hats and usually a half dozen at a time. Independent Contractor is the safe term along with Former Tier 1 Supplier Managing Member. I can get away with a little more when it comes to the US/Euro crowd, but you Toyota...
  17. 3rd gen G29 BMW Z4 (2019-202X)

    To be extra critical, the prototypes nor the production cars have “3 Series” exterior mirrors. What they have are specific door A triangle bases combined with supplier designed covers, side indicators, and mirror glass. Kinda. Most of the renderings over the past year fall into the “looks like...
  18. 3rd gen G29 BMW Z4 (2019-202X)

    Should be the whole car. All the private and press previews are completed which leaves only the official online press and in-person reveals to go. Monterrey isn’t a place to show off a camo’d car.
  19. 3rd gen G29 BMW Z4 (2019-202X)

    Damn you’re faster with a reply than I can elaborate in an edit. I’ve seen the car and the patent filings, but couldn’t even begin to guess when someone will leak them. Oh come on now. I’ve given up more than my fair share over the years and one must have self-imposed limits. If I could...
