Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here's a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the items information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item is worth.


If listing a car
-Post the year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it is currently at and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-Post a price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires
-Post the brand and model
-Post as many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. If tires, any gashes, bubbles, cupping and curb rash
-Post a price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing Parts
-What brand and what models it can be used on
-An accurate description

-Any imperfections
-Post a price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


Miscellaneous items
-A detailed description of the item
-How long it/they were used for
-Any imperfections
-Post a price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post what you are willing to pay. Only douchebags will bump up their price if your price is higher then theirs.
-Where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup only


In case the point was not made, everything being sold must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist. Do not post links to either for your ad. The same goes for other forums. Either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, please stay out of the thread or else be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Only bump your thread once a day. You are allowed to respond to others more then once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    For what it's worth I still ordered a kit from him knowing it's going to take a while and have no communication. It looks to be by far the easiest solution to run MS in these cars.

      ..unfortunately, we are having to file a claim with Paypal since he didn't feel the need to reply to emails.

      My buddy is normally fairly tolerant, but when you've got a grand hanging out there for a couple months now and no reliable response. I can understand his displeasure.

      We both own businesses and know that no matter where you are in life, you still can at least get a response out to paying customers.

        Yep. If it gets around 60 days and he never ships your kit, probably best to get a PayPal claim opened.

        EDIT: Looks like you have 180 days to file a item-not-received dispute with PayPal now.

          Doesn't DIYAutotune.com still sell PNP kits for the M20/M42? I think they are microsquirt based (MS2 CPU/software). Can run sequential on the M42 with some mods, sequential on the M20 requires MS3 though.

          Making these is pretty time consuming. Last time I built a MS kit (and I've built several) it took like 4-5 hours of soldering. Presumably, this is just a side job/hobby for these guys and not a full time job - nobody is making a living wage selling MS kits for old BMWs. :p

            The DIYAutotune kits are $800 and are somewhat plug and play. It plugs into your stock harness, but I don't believe it bolts up to the stock ECU location. You also have to splice or rewire for the IAT, MAP sensor, and wideband if you are going to use one. You'll need to come up with your own solution for the variable TPS.

            Dederic's kit is nice because for $70 extra versus DIYAutotune, you get an MS2 built into a stock ECU box so it mounts right up, a wideband O2 sensor that plugs into the stock wiring harness 4-pin connector, an adapter that plugs into the stock AFM connector that wires your IAT and MAP sensor utilizing stock wiring, and a bolt up variable TPS with an adapter for stock wiring. It also comes with an M20 startup map (I am not sure if the DIY kit does).

            It's just slightly more money and saves you a lot of time and effort (and probably money ultimately).

            Obviously if you are electrically inclined there are cheaper options than either of them. I've built an MS2 board for a friend's car and while it was a fun project, I don't desire to do it again for my car. I also like that with this kit, you can convert back to Motronic in minutes, and don't have to splice a single wire on your engine harness.

                I received my kit from Derek. It did take a while to get it. (ordered mid December) But I figured that going in. This is a side thing for him. Not a full business like DIYautotune. But I have to say its a great kit. Came with everything packaged and great instruction for everything. Seems like all the wiring is great quality! Can't wait to get it on my car.

                Thanks!!

                  We did get the kit a few weeks ago, and it does look great. But it still would help keep people's minds at ease if he could keep people updated in the future.

                  Take it as constructive criticism or whichever, but I am glad we get to try his set up out. I'm sure it'll be great.

                      I would allow a month to month and a half. Its great work but takes a while. He only does it as a side thing.

                        Yup, I emailed him and he said ~6 weeks. I am actually getting a megasquirt from SSSquid tuning (squidmaster) because I have had multiple chips from him and his service is the best.

                          If you get a CEL, make sure to send it back to him immediately. Nearly a year later, I sent it back to him to install Bluetooth and he fixed the CEL, but I wasn't going to spend the $135 to replace the daughterboard that had a few issues. So it turns out I won't have a few input/outputs, like launch control. Not the biggest deal in the world, but kind of disappointing.

                          He's definitely not the best at responding to emails. He's had my unit for a few months now, I hope to get it back soon.

                          edit: He fixed everything and got the unit back to me a few weeks after I posted this. Just wanted to make that clear. He may take his time, but he is a stand up dude. Definitely does this as a side project, but it's quality work.

                              Does anyone else has the issue with PayPal trying to sneak in some sort of tax on the MS purchase? It doesn't show with the initial price break down but than it's quietly added to the total right before you checkout. Is this set by PP or OP? I'm nowhere near CA...What kind of tax is it? Sales tax?

                                That's him charging you for PayPal fees basically. He said that can't be waived.
