ASD bypass

Hi everyone, posting this in the UK section because I was wondering if there is any way to get the ASD bypass kit in UK/Europe and avoid the import duty taxes.

Is there any European producer of the equivalent of this:

https://technicpnp.com/product/asd-bypass-harness/

Where did you get yours if you did?

Thanks for your help.

Not that I am aware of. I ordered mine from the US and paid about £25 import fees. Well worth it in my opinion.

It was circa £110 include import taxes.

Holy moly... £110 for a bypass cable? Also that's a lot in shipping fees isn't it?

Hi

I'm looking forward to getting rid of the background drone from the car with this addition, the ASD harness.

I have a m140i . I have the default HK stereo I think, but the shadow had an upgraded stereo system ?

Will the harness fit all the systems or do I need to worry about my specific stereo ?



I've emailed the website but just awaiting a reply, searching about I thought this fairly recent thread might be ableto help mean while.

Thanks

I started off not being bothered by ASD, but now it's really wearing on me. Especially now we're in the winter with my windows rolled up most of the time.

Does anyone know what this is and whether it does the same thing?

It's on a .eu website, so maybe available from UK Audison dealers.

Ok, I did some more digging this morning and found this.

https://www.carfeature.de/en/hifi-na...d-bypass-cable

Have been informed by the supplier and the UK Gladen distributor that it is the correct part. Unfortunately the UK distributor doesn't sell them individually, just as part of the audio upgrade kits (which look pretty good I might add). So I've just ordered one from the link above coming in at about £50 delivered.

Much better than £110!

OK So I just ordered one as well. 2 days delivery quoted as well.... Didn't hear back from the company in the OP. Hopefully this will fit right in to the 140i and all will be well.

Yes mate, mine arrived on Monday. Didn't create an account either, but got emails to say it was dispatched and then a message from DHL telling me the delivery date a couple of days later.

Not got round to fitting it yet though.

Awesome.

I had to chase up the supplier who said it was delivered, then i chase up ukmail/dhl and they say they delivered it with a signature, but oops no we didnít. .... so they ĎredeliveredĎ the Ďalready deliveredí parcel and i got it.

Anyway ó- on the m140i it couldn't be easier literally 1 minute to fit it behind the first aid flap. Unclip, unplug replug reclip. So easy. All these guides must be for m2 (boot seal, undoing the nut etc... do not need to do any of that on the m140)

But the plug did not seem to fit the keying was slight off on both ends. I used a pen knife and just notched a couple of mm from the key moulding and assumed it would be fine. It was and holy shit ó- I should have done this on day 1.. 1000% more pleasant to be in the car. No stupid droning when going into sport mode. No stupid droning at all in fact. Stereo sounds clearer donesít need to be as loud, and yes you can have a nice convo at 70+mph which before was actually difficult to do. No hissing or any other issues this is 100% bona fide imporvement that should have been from the factory. I canít believe the difference is so good. Itís like a new car.

Sometimes i do 50-60 mile motorway at night. Quiet, no radio, cruise at 75mph and it was really getting right on my tits even in comfort, but now itís like a weight has been lifted from my ears ahhhhhh itís so , so much better.

I fitted mine today at work. Was relatively easy, but like you, I had to have a little nibble at the connectors with a Stanley knife to make the kit fit. Glad you’d done that as I felt a bit more comfortable knowing the end result would probably be ok.

Anyways, after my commute I’m amazed at how much noise that little box was creating, I realised there was an artificial element to what I was hearing, but I didn’t realise the extent of it. In Sport modes it’s night and day, almost disconcertingly quiet at first without the faked induction roar. I like it though, it’s loads more pleasant in the cabin and I can now drive in sport and still enjoy my music. Can also appreciate the exhaust a lot more and even pick up turbo noises that were well hidden before when I turn the music off. All in all, it’s £50 well spent in my eyes.

A shame you can’t just turn it on and off though, I miss the ‘Individual’ mode I used to have in my Golf where you could turn the engine (sound) on and off as you pleased. But then again, I don’t think I ever turned it on for very long, if at all.
