    This is the funiest thread I've seen in a long time. Some moderator on E46fanatics creates a thread saying: I have no idea what he was expecting but of course no one takes him seriously and he ends up banning a guy. HILARIOUS! http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=1050766 Cliff notes: pics or gtfo. nudes? Posts pic of friend: Damn, dawg. Looks like she loves food. Can she at least cook? You're going to need another fridge for her groceries. Damn, dawg. Looks like she loves food. Can she at least cook? You're going to need another garage for her to sleep.. Damn, dawg. Looks like she loves food. Can she at least cook? You're going to need deep freezer and a 3 quarter cow. Anyways OP can't put his pants on and says his wife is great and all... more comments. Easy answer, divorce this biatch... You're the man, start acting like it. It is going to cost you more than $200 out of your pocket to have that gal living with you: -Missing groceries (entire shelves from the pantry) -AC cranked at 60 degrees will cost you more -Increased electricity cost from the stove, oven, and deep fryer always being in use 24/7 -Showers - well, that is like washing a car or irrigating the lawn so skyrocketed water bills Chubby fingers make for some great handjobs. Especially when covered in fried chicken grease OP then tries to reason with his wife using suggestions from other posters like getting a seperate fridge for her... And at this point it is clear for everyone that those 2 are not the brightest bulbs... Then OP says this: Quote: Originally Posted by choxor Just hope she doesn't get knocked up while staying with you. Now I had deleted this in my comment, I didnt want to come out as some sort of racist as I am not. But she dates multiple black men(maybe one at a time at one point?) But Only black men. Now...I dont..even..know..how to go about saying this..but I do not want random multiple (any race) of men in my house. Especially promiscuous?.. Um strangers who she wants to do things at my house with. I raised this with my wife, and she says she wont do that...yeahhhhh right LMFAO!!!! More comments... careful you're gonna get robbed. or you will gain another roommate when the guy she is fvcking starts sleeping in her bed. People are really fucking with the OP but he takes it all seriously... #thefattening OP says this: I have told espy (the future roommate) to *S*T*F*U about what Ive said on FB messanger, but knowing these bit&ches, no honor. Most honnest comment so far: I understand she is your wife, the mother of your children, and you love her a lot, but obviously shes a lunatic. Ah well maybe this one: Charge rent by the pound. Better invest in some steel chairs. Orca's are getting embarrassed because people on this forum keep comparing her to them. Then this happens... My wife has these accelerated classes for some medical school stuff on the weekends. I had been showing my friends this thread while BBQ ing and sending out via FB messenger to my other friends and we're all laughing. Wife comes home, a friend takes the whole family to lids, to get my son a early bday present. A Black LA hat size 6 3/4 for the kid. The whole time she looks kind of annoyed. SO I ask her, hey whats wrong? "we have guests, not right now" OH SHIZZ is ringing in my head. OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH SHIIIIIZZZZ Her friend called her? Told her that I had said something... Friends leave, night is great, we have a TERRIFIC NIGHT, &*(&(*ing TERRIFIC. right after this TERRIFIC-NESS> RIGHT AFTER! "You left your e46fanatics on the screen when I got home. I read EVerything" (OOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH SHIIIIIIIIZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ ZZZ) right after the TERRIFICNESS! "Why do you lie about the king size bed, its a queen" "umm huh?" You didnt get her permission to post her photos like that. I want them taken down. And next time dont let people talk Shiz about me, why the hell would you do that..blah blah blah blah BLAH." "oh honey its just for SHiz and giggle, this is a board of criticism and the biggest haters club in the world," I only saw like two good suggestions in there. is what she said. SO>...............I dont really know what the heck is going to happend. The last 48 hours though has been really good.(phew) Comments: Wife finds OT thread. Gets upset that Mach mentioned King-sized bed when it was a Queen. The lulz never end. Then this freaks everyone out: She's tied to the floor, naked, on her back, both feet, both hands, tied to makeshift posts that are connected to boards which are weighted down with metal. The hands are shot full of nails and her legs are spread as wide as possible. A pillow props her ass up and cheese, Brie, has been smeared across her open vagina, some of it even pushed up into the vaginal cavity. I try using the power drill on her, forcing it into her mouth, but she's conscious enough, has strength, to close her teeth, clamping them down, and even though the drill goes through the teeth quickly, it fails to interest me and so I hold her head up, blood dribbling from her mouth, and make her watch the rest of the tape and while she's looking at the girl on the screen bleed from almost every possible orifice, I'm hoping she realizes that this would have happened to her no matter what. That she would have ended up lying here, on the floor in my apartment, hands nailed to posts, cheese and broken glass pushed up into her pvssy, her head cracked and bleeding purple, no matter what other choice she might have made. I'm trying to ease one of the hollow plastic tubes from the dismantled Habitrail system up into her vagina, forcing the vaginal lips around one end of it, and even with most of it greased with olive oil, it's not fitting in properly During this, the jukebox plays Frankie Valli singing "The Worst That Could Happen" and I'm grimly lip-syncing to it, while pushing the Habitrail tube up into this bitch's cvnt. I finally have to resort to pouring acid around the outside of the pussy so that the flesh can give way to the greased end of the Habitrail and soon enough it slides in, easily. "I hope this hurts you," I say. The rat hurls itself against the glass cage as I move it from the kitchen into the living room. It refused to eat what was left of the other rat I had bought it to play with last week, that now lies dead, rotting in a corner of the cage. (For the last five days I've purposefully starved it.) I set the glass cage down next to the girl and maybe because of the scent of the cheese the rat seems to go insane, first running in circles, mewling, then trying to heave its body, weak with hunger, over the side of the cage. The rat doesn't need prodding and the bent coat hanger I was going to use remains untouched by my side and with the girl still conscious, the thing moves effortlessly on newfound energy, racing up the tube until half of it body disappears, and then after a minute - its rat body shaking while it feeds - all of it vanishes, except for the tail, and I yank the Habitrail tube out of the girl, trapping the rodent. Soon even the tail disappears. The noises the girl is making are, for the most part, incomprehensible. Then OP gets mad at a comment and bans the guy. Oh my.... what the fuck...

    Interesting comparison here between the current C7 RS7 featuring the 4.0 TFSI twin turbo V8 and the C6 RS6 which uses a 5.0 liter twin turbo V10. As AudiBoost published in an article last year dyno results show that despite the extra two cylinders and liter of displacement for the C6 RS6 the C7 RS6's 4.0 TFSI actually shows more torque and the power output is a wash. How do the two motors stack up in the real world against each other when tuned? Well, the C7 RS7 makes surprisingly easy work of the RS6 and the 5.0 liter V10 the 4.0 TFSI V8 replaced. There are two runs from a roll in the video below and the newer car pulls easily in each run. Pretty impressive considering both cars feature tunes with the C7 RS7 running an APR tune while the C6 RS6 has a Sportmile Stage 2 tune. The RS6 is the avant model and the lighter sedan would likely do better against the RS7. It would still lose though as by 160 miles per hour the RS7 puts bus lengths on the RS6. Many Audi fans complained about the loss of the 5.0 liter tin turo V10 for the RS6. The 4.0 TFSI V8 clearly is more than up to the task of replacing it.

For someone looking to get into the platform this would be a great setup without having to deal with the pain-points that go with the n54/e82 chassis. I have taken my time and upgraded everything that needed attention and replaced every worn part with new as I will list below. I'm not looking to part out, I feel I'm asking a reasonable price given the extent of the work done here (about $20k in parts/labor). I know mods don't add value but for the right person this is a steal! I have receipts for everything upon request. Visual/ Interior Mods: -3m m26 wrap (perfect, sealed with dx beaslys) -35% tint all around -BMW Shadowline kit, including front grills -Apex Arc 8 wheels 135i fitment, BRAND NEW(not even mounted yet) Michelin Pilot Super Sports 245F/265R -Tweeters replaced with VIFA ot19 ring radiators, and mids upgraded to l7 from an e90 Recent Maintenance: -New OEM turbos 500 miles ago -Transmission fluid drained and filled 3x about 1k ago -New Trans pan -New Mechatronics sleve -New (1k miles) NGK 5992 plugs -Newer (3k) miles 6 OEM injectors, newest revision -New OEM brake pads/fluid (2k miles) -New (3k miles) HPFP -New Oil filter housing gasket Performance Upgrades: -Cobb v2 with protune, will come with maps for any fuel from 91, 93 to pretty much any e85 mix -Steve Az stage 2 pump, aprox 100 miles on it -BMS downpipes -n55 midpipe -CX/Active FMIC -BMS dci -BMS thermostat -RB PCV valve -Alpina Flash Suspension/Driveline mods (installed 500 miles ago) All mounting hardware was replaced during install -Swift spings -Koni Yellow shocks/struts w/ sport bump stops -SPC camber plates -m3 control arms/ tension arms -Turner rear subframe bushings -Powerflex Differential bushings -Mfactory LSD -Solid aluminum rear toe arms -H&R rear swaybar -HD front swaybar bushings -HD swaybar endlinks front and rear -custom alignment Overall the car is a blast to drive and with all of the suspension upgrades it tracks laser straight, no more wandering ass end.

    As some of you may already know my '08 135i single turbo was wreaked/total'd by a rear-end collision. Since I had just finished my ST build, I really didn't want to let go of it just yet, so I decided to buy the car back so I could pull all my performance parts, and pull the motor/drivetrain for spare parts. Pretty much the rest of the car is for sale. Anything you need, please post or PM and I am sure we can come to an agreement. I really just need to get this car gone. :( Here are the pics.

    Dinan continues to roll out more of their piggyback tunes for the newer turbo M cars. Their latest Dinantronics tune tackles the new F80 M3 and F82 M4 equipped with the S55 inline-6. The $2499.00 Dinan box raises output on 93 octane from the factory 425 horsepower to a Dinan claimed crank output of 516 horsepower. Torque goes up from 406 lb-ft at the crank to 489 lb-ft for a gain of 83 lb-ft as measured at the crank. Now, we know the M3 and M4 are very underrated from the factory to begin with. How is Dinan measuring the horsepower here? We do not doubt the power and torque gains whatsoever but the M3 and M4 are making close to 500 horsepower off the showroom floor. This is why we want to see output at the wheels, not at the crank. Quoting crank figures with modern turbo cars is a tuner relic. Obviously, the main competition here is going to come from BMS. The BMS M3/M4 JB4 box costs $799.00. BMS has shown over 500 horsepower at the wheels already with this tune. Frankly, BimmerBoost believes BMS prices the F80 M3 and F82 M4 JB4 at $799.00 because if it was any more of a value M owners would probably consider it a 'cheap' piece of a equipment. BMS has room to drop the price but Dinan's pricing means they do not have to. It certainly will be interesting to see some real dyno results as well as real world performance numbers. People buy tunes to be faster. Which piggyback tune is the fastest? Well, we all already know the most expensive tune is not necessarily the fastest tune. Product Description Stage 1 (DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner ONLY) Maximum Power: 516 HP, 489 lb-ft of torque. The DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner is a highly engineered and sophisticated piece of computer hardware and software that enhances engine performance, without negating or voiding your new car warranty coverage and without affecting long term reliability or the functionality of on-board diagnostic systems. It was also designed to be emissions legal in 50 states (E.O. Pending). The ultimate objective of developing this piece of technology was to provide the ability to control every signal entering and exiting the BMW factory Engine Control Unit. These items are unique to Dinan and together they embody the apex of performance engineering in a powerful, reliable, and warrantied package. The Dinan® Difference The biggest benefit of the DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner is our ECU has the… "…capability of setting an optimum target lambda (fuel mixture) as well as correcting short term trim which is the difference between target and scheduled fuel mixture. By matching these two correctly we can reduce knock sensor activity which will make smoother performance, protect the catalyst, increase power and allow us to make it emissions legal."- Steve Dinan The Dinan® Difference is possible by employing a full staff of talented engineers that are well rounded in all aspects of their job. Manipulating these signals with an adept hand all the while keeping an engine running at its best and with the most reliable power is what Dinan is all about. Well Engineered Plug-in tuning devices all have one thing in common, they send a modified signal to the factory ECU, telling it the boost pressure is below target values. This then causes the factory ECU to raise the boost pressure to what it thinks is the correct value. This modified boost pressure signal causes errors in fuel mixture and ignition timing. These errors can cause the on-board diagnostics systems to set faults, but they can also cause exceedingly high catalyst temperatures and a loss of power. In addition, when power is increased, exhaust gas temperature will increase as well and this must be countered with a slightly richer air/fuel mixture. The DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner uniquely has the capability to adjust target Lambda, correct short term trim as well as ignition timing errors induced by raising boost pressure. This enables Dinan calibration engineers to optimize air/fuel mixture and ignition timing at elevated boost pressure throughout the entire gamut of engine RPM and engine load. Additionally, the ability to correct short term trim corrections (the difference between target and scheduled fuel mixture) remain within OEM specifications. This minimizes knock sensor activity, which in turn means smooth engine performance, catalyst protection and power increase, while this is also required to make the car emissions legal. Dinan engineers have worked for two years on the DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner in efforts to provide BMW enthusiasts with Performance without Sacrifice. State-of-the-Art Hardware The DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner is engineered using the best possible components and advanced hardware. The most obvious and visible component is the elaborate wiring harness. Using OE connectors and an expandable braided wiring sleeves ensures that all visible components appear as if they come straight from the factory. More importantly however it guarantees long lasting and dependable performance due to the use of high heat, moisture and abrasion resistant materials and design. The other hardware element involved is the Dinan electronic control unit (ECU) itself. While its outward appearance may seem tame, the processing power and sophistication held within its internal circuitry is anything but. Capable of delivering signals to various systems at an astonishing 4000 times per second the DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner yields the power to control all current signals delivered to the ECU as well as those developed in the future without a hiccup in performance or reliability. This immense processing power equates to a high degree of engine control resulting in a much lower likelihood of setting a fault. In addition smoother running conditions and superior drivability are achieved, all of which are Dinan hallmarks. Unmatched Warranty Dinan's comprehensive warranty program, introduced in 1997, provides superior warranty coverage to that which you would find elsewhere. If your vehicle is currently covered by the vehicle manufacturer's new car limited warranty, Dinan® products are warranted for the remaining term of the vehicle manufacturer's new car limited warranty. The manufacturer's new car warranty is limited to 4 years or 50,000 miles (80,000 kilometers in Canada), commencing on the date of first retail sale or the date the vehicle is first placed in-service as a demonstrator or company vehicle, whichever is earlier. Dinan's warranties are transferable when ownership of the vehicle into which the Dinan® products were originally installed is sold. BMW automobiles can now be performance-tuned without the associated concern of negatively affecting the new car warranty coverage. Designed to be Emissions Legal The DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner was designed and built to be the only tuning box on the market that is emissions legal in all 50 states. At the moment this product is emissions legal in most states – the product is in compliance with US Federal EPA Memorandum 1A, or this product has not been found, nor is believed to be, unlawful for use under the provisions of the Clean Air Act. Currently this product is not legal for sale or use in California, and states that have adopted California emissions standards, on any pollution controlled motor vehicles. We are however in the E.O. process with the ARB and are confident that the DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner will be emissions legal in all states in the near future. Drivability There is more to a tune than just cranking up the boost. Power needs to come on smoothly and in a predictable way to make the car as fun to drive at wide open throttle as cruising around town. It is your BMW, but reborn with new found acceleration and speed. Installation Plug-and-Play installation in two hours or less at any of the 180+ Dinan® Dealers. While firmware is loaded directly on the ECU the model specific software will need to be downloaded into the ECU by an authorized Dinan dealer after installation. Log on to www.dinancars.com to find your nearest dealer or contact Dinan to make an appointment. Easy To Use Dinan's ECU is Bluetooth® Smart meaning that you can change maps simply via a Bluetooth connection. Just install and you are done! Designed for the Future The DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner was engineered with future expansion of functionality in mind. Boasting the most powerful processing power on the market the DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner can handle more functions and processes than any of its contemporaries. To that end the Dinan performance tuner is capable of interfacing with the CAN and FlexRay communication systems which allow for controlling powertrain functions, among others. This means that when new functions are developed there will be no need for a new box, just a short software update at your local Dinan dealer. Satisfaction Guaranteed Dinan guarantees you will be impressed by the DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner and the performance it provides that we offer a 3-Day return policy. If you aren't satisfied with what the Dinan solution brings to the table within 3 days of install you can go back to your dealer for a full refund (installation labor costs still apply).

    BMW is getting close to the official reveal of the new F15 based X5M and the X6M based on the F16 X6. BMW gives M vehicles their own chassis codes for whatever reason these days so the X6M will be an F86 chassis code. A leak earlier this year confirmed a DCT transmission for the X5M and X6M as well as an updated S63TU twin turbocharged and direct injected 4.4 liter V8 powerplant. With the switch to a DCT rather than an automatic transmission durability is definitely in question. The X6M and X5M will be the heaviest vehicles on the market with all wheel drive and a dual clutch transmission. With a tremendous amount of torque from the S63TU V8 BMW is doing some very hard testing on the Nurbugring to make sure the vehicle is ready for primetime. Expect an official reveal of the new M suv's by the end of the year.

    Some impressive results here from 911Tuning who took their 996 Turbo to the 1/4 mile dragstrip. 911Tuning managed to get a very nice 9.66 elapsed time thanks to a good launch and a 1.557 60 foot. The car looks like it may be set up as rear wheel drive but we do not know. Frankly, few details are provided by 911Tuning as to the specs of the car as they only provided the timeslip and video of the run. What fuel? What turbos? Built motor? Stock ECU? What tires? Where are the details? The 122 1/8 mile trap speed is certainly flying (and it should provide a higher 1/4 mile trap speed) but there is a whole ton of pertinent information missing. Impressive performance regardless:

Log on to www.dinancars.com to find your nearest dealer or contact Dinan to make an appointment. Easy To Use Dinan's ECU is Bluetooth® Smart meaning that you can change maps simply via a Bluetooth connection. Just install and you are done! Designed for the Future The DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner was engineered with future expansion of functionality in mind. Boasting the most powerful processing power on the market the DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner can handle more functions and processes than any of its contemporaries. To that end the Dinan performance tuner is capable of interfacing with the CAN and FlexRay communication systems which allow for controlling powertrain functions, among others. This means that when new functions are developed there will be no need for a new box, just a short software update at your local Dinan dealer. Satisfaction Guaranteed Dinan guarantees you will be impressed by the DINANTRONICS™ Performance Tuner and the performance it provides that we offer a 3-Day return policy. If you aren't satisfied with what the Dinan solution brings to the table within 3 days of install you can go back to your dealer for a full refund (installation labor costs still apply).

    Can't find this posted anywhere.. .not too many videos of it but: https://www.facebook.com/12rotor http://www.australiastoughestcars.com.au/news/video-960-cubic-inch-custom-built-12-rotor-on-the-dyno/ Few other videos too. ED: It's 480ci as quoted by them, in actual 'rotary' nomenclature. hopefully EFI'd it has a bit more brap.. sounds nowhere near as good as the PPRE 6 rotor, and allegedly it's going into a boat... NOT setting records on the strip :'(
