From TMS:

"Looking to upgrade your air filter for increased flow and performance? BMC filter allow significantly higher air flow and are perfectly molded in one piece to fit exactly the same as your stock air filter. These filters are constructed from multi-layerd cotton gauze that is pre-oiled and can be cleaned and regenerated using the BMC regeneration kit."
Yeah, BMCs are oiled as well. AFE makes dry filters for anyone looking for an aftermarket dry filter option for their intake filters.

7. Tire Pressure Display
8. Performance Display (HP, Torque)
My car is refusing to save the Performance Display? It will save the Tire pressure and even the map any suggestions? Am I missing something?

the performance display also has to be saved to a favorite from the screen prior to actually displaying the HP and torque. If you try and set the favorite while HP and torque are displaying, you'll get an error.

The other common command I use is "cancel route" when I'm close enough to find my way home.
Is there a listing of voice commands for the M2C?

The mpg gauge is dumb, change it for your steering and the "chassis" settings. The sport cluster is cool, but not very accurate. It's a cool show off trick. Sadly no boost gauge.

Some first things I would suggest:
BMS Clutch Stop - helps with the clutch throw if you're 6MT
BMC High Flow Filters - Remove the factory air filters and the factory carbon filters, and you can ACTUALLY hear the turbos spooling. It's fun, and should net some extra power.
ASD Bypass Harness - ASD (active sound design) pumps fake engine noises into the cabin. On Sport+ it is loud inside. If you like the noise, then ignore this. Otherwise, get the harness and enjoy hearing the REAL engine noise.
Unplug Center Speaker - The factory sound system is honestly very bad, but unplugging the speaker behind the iDrive screen helps a TON.
Supplemental Door Seals - This helps cut down on some tire and road noise, and quiets down the cabin more. Coupled with the ASD bypass and unplugging the center speaker, the cabin is transformed.
Any more details on the door sealing mod?
Interested to see how people are doing it.

Yep, it's just the door seals from the base 2 series. The M2, for whatever reason, does not get these seals. They are foam, and simply fit between the edge of the fender, and the "chassis" of the car. Super easy to install, 5 minutes per side roughly. Dunno why they're called door seals, since they seal the fender to the car.

A bit OT, but also, NEVER wipe the instrument cluster with any sort of fabric/towel. It will be scratched.

Use canned air to blow any dust off.

The M2 uses Dragon software for natural voice recognition. It's quite good interpreting what you say... Most of the time I can say "Go to <any street address>" or "go to <restaurant name>" and it usually finds it or gives me a choice and sets the nav destination. "Play <song name or artist>" and it will play it on my iPod. "Display <iDrive menu name> takes you to that. I'm not sure what all it can control.

The challenge in the M2 is the background noise can confuse it. It understands me better in my M550i
