So anyone knows the way for having the exhaust flaps always open in track mode?? unplugged the flaps in the exhaust maybe??
can anyone help me?
thanks.
Regarding the MPE on the original M2 and M2 LCI: 'The MPE Hack':
  • to keep the valve permanently closed: either don't use the remote control or click the MPE master switch inside the trunk from "I" to "O" position or disconnect the grey cable plug when the valve is in position "closed";
  • to keep the valve permanently open: disconnect the grey cable plug when the valve is in position "open" (disconnection while engine is turning).
The MPE actuator is kind of 'brain dead' when the grey cable plug is disconnected. The valve remains in the last position prior to disconnection.

100% reversible, no error codes, no modification, no programming, no pairing or re-pairing, only takes a few seconds, zero engineering knowledge required and $0 - it's as simple like that.

Iíve to screw the bolt in the endtips every week otherwise theyíre rattling. Do you guys use locktite or something? Iím also looking for some kind of thin foil/tape which I can place between the exhaust and tips but havenít found what I need.

MPE Sports Mode Coding

Has anyone successfully coded the Sports Mode, to open the Valves / Flap on the MPE, without having to activate via the Bluetooth controller.

If I'm not mistaken it's not possible due to the MPE system being completely independent from the stock exhaust valve actuator. You plug it into the MPE simply to not get any error codes.

Even if valves are closed and you're at 7000 RPM, they don't open automatically, unlike stock/other exhausts.

I just open it and then unplug the MPE controller . The bluetooth issues associated with this exhaust are just too much to put up with.

I did a bit of a research into this because the BT controller is pain in the ass.

The cheapest way to do this is to source couple of actuators from any non-M BMW (actually the stock OG M2 without MPE also uses that part number).
You replace the MPE actuators with those, add a Y connector (OEM part for some M performance model), and plug it into a connector that was disconnected during the MPE install.

Total cost would be $200-$300 depending on where you get the actuators.

Here is one of the threads where we talked about it - https://f87.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...ght=mpe+wiring

For a hack that does not require any works, does not throw error codes, is 100% reversible and costs $0: see here.

Does anyone know how to pair a used Bluetooth remote with the MPE (already installed)? Just bought a lightly used M2 (unbelievable spec!) and bought a remote off someone on here and my local dealer was kind of clueless when I first asked about pairing it. I havenít taken delivery yet as still waiting on title but very interested in getting my ducks in a row.

Iíve read you can reset ECU in trunk with a pen but not exactly sure how to pair

Should re-pair right up

Then: double press the remote and see what happens
And in case you did the 'MPE hack' (permanently open or closed valves: see here): no re-pairing required after plugging the grey plug back into the MPE module.

Yes, the difference is they are for two different engines.

The M2 MPE is a singe pipe catback
The M2C MPE is dual pipes

Hi all,

I'm from France and I bought recently an LCI 2018 M2 with a manual gearbox (not a competition) in Germany and I'm currently looking for an M Performance exhaust who is not sold anymore in Europe.

I try to buy it on leebmann24 but they told me that the M Perf exhaust is not compatible. I recently contacted a french independent dealership who told me that the part can fit.

I try to get the information from myself but I cant' find anywhere if the part can fit to my vehicle or not, I called BMW France and they can't help me.

I saw some 2018 M2 and some press vehicule with the exhaust installed.

My car is under warranty and I don't want to loose it, if I install this exhaust.

Can someone heard about an incompatibility between a 2018 LCI M2 with manual gearbox and the M Perf exhaust ?
