    I just read through this entire thread and I have Zero, Zippo, Zilcha clue what is being sold here. :huh

    I am totally confused. I must be completely missing something because this thread appears to contain no information at all concerning WHAT product is being sold. :deal

    All I got from the thread was "They are plug-in performance mods for ALL fuel injected BMW bikes!" and a whole lot of self promotion from the person who created these mods (clearly qualified to do so I think) plus a bunch of testimonials from people I've never heard of before, nor whose opinions I care about (sorry y'all but I don't trust anyones opinion on products for my bikes but my own).

    But what are they? How do they work? What is required from the user for install? What kind of long term testing has been done to ensure that engine damage doesn't occur? What do the dynos look like on various model bikes after install and under different settings? What performance improvements are guaranteed as "minimum" improvements? Will this void my BMW warranty and is it an approved aftermarket mod by BMW? Where is the normal product spec stuff that someone who values their bikes would want to see before making any kind of purchase? I'm looking for QA/QC, product testing results, and comparisons to stock.

    <BR>Hey there Flashback. Thanks for your interest, sorry you had to drag yourself all the way through the Vendors thread. The first post in this thread has a great many links that I'm pretty sure would answer your questions.

    Also at the top of the first post of this thread, there's a link to the big technical thread in GSspot.

    I have to admit I was impressed with the quality of the piece, Poolside. I have bought "garage" parts before and this one is definitely executed by someone who knows what the hell they are doing....

    Can we get an update on shipping status? I am pretty sure my order got into the last batch because it was showing three to go when I ordered and quite a while after but I am nervous that the lag in the counter may mean I have to wait for the next batch.

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>Yes, AJ has an IICE Air for sale. If you are interested, send him a PM.

    IICE Air will not work as-designed on his bike because either there's an aftermarket chip inside the Motronic ECU, or there is a tune-up or mechanical issue with the bike.
