Just picked up a 09 335i coupe. I absolutely love it

First question: I just ordered the jb4 stage 3 (for some reason mod bargains says stage 4). The car is stock, so what is the best map to use?

Second- With he driver side sun visor open, the light under the visor turns on, even of I don't open the door. Is this suppose to be on? The passenger side turns on only when sliding the mirror open.

Congrats on the E92!

There is a micro switch in the visor which triggers the light, it sounds like yours has worn out.

Very nice, just keep in mind, vanos adjusters like to go bad on these cars if u drive too hard. Yes the visor needs to be replaced, light goes off when u slide the cover.

The adjusters are two sprockets in the front of the engine under the valve cover u can see them if you have an n55 engine and ur oil cap is in the front. Look at the bolts on the sprockets, they usually brake off and cause problems with the engine.
Symptoms are misfiring and crank no start.
Not trying to get u worried or anything but just thought I'd give u a heads up there, I've seen a lot of them go bad even on the new n55 engines.
