thanks everyone for the helpful posts. I'm trying to make sure I've got all the latest info correct on doing the Euro tune on my own 06 SMG III. The earliest posts all involved downloading and installing individual files from torrents that seem to be hard to find now - Am I correct in assuming that if I have the BMW Coding Tools V3 VM and WinKFP loaded with the latest datens, then all I need to do is flash ZUSB 7842206 in WinKFP, and that's it?
I've already poked around in winKFP and do see this ZB number is already there. I've used WinKFP before to flash my iDrive controller. So is this really all I need to do? Will use a decent power supply too, of course.

Need help!!! Long story short I can only keep 1. Both 06. Both smg. Both have not had rod bearings done yet. Both run strong. Silver is cleaner as far as exterior and over all imo. Blues front and rear bumpers could use repaint and a good wax. But I feel I know where this would go lol since the...
Had an opportunity to test fit srt8 Jeep calipers for 15in. Rotors.
Plus: they will practically bolt up. The bolt size is different, (srt calipers have a larger bolt) than stock e60 spindle.
Minus: rotor is .5in. Too small for a bolt on application. 374mm vs. 400mm needed

Just thought I'd create a pictorial DIY for the drive belt, idler pulley, and tensioner pulleys replacement. I searched and searched and freaking searched to find a complete guide to accomplishing this task and only came up with bits and pieces. Hopefully someone else will find...
