    Yeah, I would hope so... I like the car, and have high hopes for that motor.

    I think in the 70s/80s, yes the turbocharged mills of the past were MUCH more powerful than anything we have seen in recent years. However, the latest turbo 6-s are NOT as powerful as the old V8...

    I can help answer the question on what would happen if you widened the front, and not the rear of a car. You will have a "quicker" corner entry; in other words, turn-in will improve and the car will...

    I think Rupbert is a good name for a dog - but my g/f disagrees. She also thinks I misspell it with the P, but I throw in the P for good measure. A ridiculously over the top English name for a cool...

    Yeah, and just noticed that the 6 speed was indeed a new one for this car... Not sure how they dropped the ball on that.

    I think in general, it's only the purists that really care about DSG. In...

    That's a bummer. Seems like it was almost an afterthought for them to put the 6 speed in the car. I know people in the USA aren't fans of DSG, but I think sometimes these newer one-off cars are...

    I've been busy as heck, and haven't been around the forums much - but am curious if anyone (assuming Sticky) knows what the difference between the F8X generation DCT and what we have in the E9X M3...

    Nice runs - those M3s sound sick. Nice to hear a FI S65 spinning at 8XXX RPM - nothing much sounds as good.

    I really wouldn't mind one of those TT-RS(es) - they are cool cars, and would be fun as heck. I am not a fan of AWD, but holy hell those things launch hard.

    I have been having a lot of trouble with the site today - just trying to get to your page - it times out. Not sure if it's related - but figure any information helps.

    Correct, you CAN apply the brake (basically, only hard enough to where the light would come on, any harder and the flag turns off) - but cannot really push the brake pedal any harder than what would...

    IDK about all this... A LOT of people are very upset, think he's a murderer, etc... I am not sure what to say here.

    I have been racing, been to school, etc. - and one of the things not to do is...

    BuraQ, curious if this is a 335is thing; the brake part of the process (holding the brake pedal while engaging LC) - is that only for this car? Is it required?

    I know on my M3, I do not touch the...

    Sorry about that, quickly mis-"read" that... It would be nice for people to do this with headers and such - kinda like a dyno but for flow at pressure. Everything that can be quantified in the car...

    That's a sexy header... I didn't really think how complex headers can get (collectors) when dealing with a 5 or even 6 cylinder bank. Looks like some serious engineering.

    I like the TT-RS, and that motor seems pretty stout. I never see too many on the road, and it's a shame. I think it's an awesome motor and a great car. I like it a lot.

    I think he coined the phrase that almost anyone who has driven an M3 hard would say: "The rear end of the car limited the speed it could go". Porsche is odd with it's engine sitting over the rear,...

    Yeah, I feel ya. I think although the transmission itself is pretty bulletproof, there were some software issues that a lot of people were "told" to get - and I do know of a few people that had the...

    And just to be clear, this is not an attack against you rawad1017 - this is just a /rant on the "manly" transmission remarks that everyone seems to continue even after the age of SMG/DSG. It's...

    No offense, but what you are saying is what's wrong with the world of cars.

    This is the type of thinking that "forces" BMW to create a car with a manual option - just to appease the USA.

    I wholeheartedly agree that SMG is superior to the 6 speed box. ESPECIALLY in the S85 powered cars - where the transmission and engine were designed to work "in harmony" as a...

    re: formula 1, yes they were turbo - this is true. I would never say that F1 is behind the times, nearly all the technology we see on streetcars today stems from motorsport, and furthermore from F1....
