I know a guy who I caught a while back bending his adjustable cast aluminum brake lever by heating and bending it. He had lowsided the bike and ridden it home with a wonky lever so he wanted to "fix" it. I did him a favor and mid-explanation snapped it off in front of him with surprisingly little effort, as a way of telling him he should put the stock one back on until he could replace the adjustable. That's a good way to kill yourself, bending your cast aluminum brake lever twice then riding with it.
    They do bend some without breaking, but more importantly, the mounting holes are much larger than the bolt threads - BMW left room for adjustment. ;)

    For some reason the Motronic doesn't mind a large gap, unlike the MS. I have suggested this many times on the forums, it's common.

      Well you know as well as I; that's the difference between a production EMS designed by a team of engineers with a big budget and all of the test equipment in the business, and an adaptable EMS designed by a few dedicated engineers to be built from cheap kits.

      I suspect with a better VR conditioner circuit or more time spent tuning the stock one, MS could tolerate the same range of sensor gap adjustment.

        Not just MS. Almost all of the stand alone computers have done this to me one way or another. Remember that yellow 951 (944)? lol.

              check your ground and sensor on the wideband. either could be bad.

              No one makes this car anymore. The government won't allow them, normal people won't buy them. So it's up to us: the freaks, the weirdos, the informed. To buy them, to appreciate them, and most importantly, to drive them.

                  Hey what wideband are you using? Did you wire it through the stock sensor plug?
                  Is there a seperate wb gauge

                    I am using aem I did wire it through the stock sensor plug and yes it powered up fine. I also
                    Ran the Analog signal wire from the gauge to the
                    Signal wire that goes to the ecu but for some reason it seem like the not seeing the signal.
