    Carbs vs injectors would be my guess for the sound on those beasties!

    The Perf pops all the time in sport mode, but it makes me giggle like a school girl.

    My Z4 35i used to pop a bit on overrun. My M3 does not.

    I don't mind a bit of popping when it is natural and a bit subtle - it sounds crap when it is loud or has been clearly deliberately mapped to do it.

    Pah, that's nothing!


    That's on the quickshifter though not overrun.
    Taken all the fuel out now as it was like a gunshot every gear change.

    Yeah, it all stopped pretty much when I took that off. Fitted a CAIS instead so had a lovely flutter noise which was much nicer.
