    That is the story if you believe The Netherlands Autogestpot.nl webiste which is usually reliable. Apparently only 25 of these models are going to be made and reportedly they are all already spoken for so do not worry about saving up for one. How does the 688HS (the HS stands for High Sport) improve on the already insane 675LT model? It is even lighter shaving roughly 88 pounds for a curb weight in the 28XX pounds range and it has more power at 678 horsepower. There are aerodynamic changes as well one of which is a Formula 1 inspired DRS (Drag Reduction) system which will adjust the wing to reduce drag. Will this car officially be announced? Is it for real? We'll soon find out. Source

    Well I mean we have more than enough registered members at this point. I'll try turning it off for a bit next month and we'll see how it goes. Some of you who don't run a forum or automotive websites complaining that you have to register (although the theme of some of those members it constant negativity and complaints) don't understand you're judged based on registration numbers. I did what I had to do to catch up and pass people as well as encourage participation. It worked. I mean if you think you can do better go right ahead.

    This information is going to require maple syrup bribery, even if I pay for said syrup. I need the legit Canadian product.

    Lucky us. Entitlement culture. Registration in exchange for help, information, pictures, etc., is a very minor inconvenience. You can't post without registering anyway. Do you complain when forums make you register to create a thread? Oh no, a minute of your life was taken from you.

    I fucking hate it when forums do that. It did force me to sign up to read something in 2011, then I didn't come back and post anything for 3 years.

    Time for an update on this car too. Turbo and power last year was 1115whp @ 2 bar boost and Borg Warner 8082 turbo. This year the power is turned down to 949whp with a dual ball bearing gen 2 Precision 6870 turbo with 1.8 bar boost. Easier to drive like this.. :awesome: This year he even threw the muffler in the bin, so more fresh sound.

    Wow, almost 3 years ago. Totally forgot this :facepalm Big sorry's. Had loads to do ( :crazy: x10 ). FINALLY I have come around to putting up som new fottage. For now it just a short smoking session of a Supra at the Gatebil event. More videos to come this summer, I prioritize it. I've uploaded loads of BMW turbo content in the meanwhile, so have a look at the youtube channel you'll find some other S54 infested madness. Everything is just all over the place these days, I've been working hard to put togheter a database on this cars, hopefully things will get more structured once i've uploaded all info and detail onto my blog site. That makes it easier answering the 10 email I get on a daily basis all wanting to outlay how to turbo every BMW thinkable.. :sleeping-yellow: BTW, the car is now painted brown, fitted with a Samsonas dogbox tranny. AND it's for sale at 45-50.000 USD. Pictures in this link: http://m.finn.no/car/used/ad.html?finnkode=69164663

    Honestly that's badass! I waste $750 on stupid crap all the time. Who would have thought you could get a Land Rover to beat on that for money? What are the specs on this thing?

    Have been toying with the idea of getting a truck for the beach and this thing popped up locally for 750 dollars Didn't look bad so I decided I'd give it a shot. Just picked it up, registered it and went out on the beach. This thing is an animal in the sand! I'm really enjoying it so far, it's a nice change of pace from what I am used to and nice to be able to not worry about getting it dirty or anything. It has 308k miles. Yes, you read that right. Kind of amazing when most of these I see being parted out by 150k or so. Drives pretty good too below 70, where it starts to feel like a sail with a little bit of wind. I'm not going to go crazy with it as there's a bit of rot on the back frame where the hitch is from the last owner using it for his boat, and it has so many miles, but I just may get another nicer one down the road. If I get a year out of it, I can still scrap it for half of what it cost me

    Hi All, I have read a bunch in the last days on this forum and you all look like a very nice group! I have bought a 135i 2008 about 2 years ago, 75k miles and it needed some love ... It is actually a US car that was brought to Canada :-) It is my daily/track summer car ... sorry but winter is a Subaru :-) I found this site because I have been updating the car and had some issues ... I am preparing to check the Cam Bearing Ledge as I am getting the exhaust vanos position error when going to the track. Quick question, anybody could tell me what is the Dia of the TDC flywheel lock pin for the N54 ? Thanks, Luc

    Treat this as a rumor for now considering the source is AutoExpress but treat it as one with some substance. There is a hole in the BMW lineup as BMW does not have anything to go up against the Mercedes S-Class coupe and Audi may be joining the segment with an A9 model. BMW is getting ready to enter the segment if necessary (essentially, if they see profit in it) by trademarking various 8-Series model names including an M8. BMW never built an M8 officially but the closest they got was an 850csi model with an M division built V12 engine the S70B56. It is actually pretty easy to predict what these models would entail. The 850 would share the 750 drivetrain. There is no 840 on the list so the 845 would likely share the 740 drivetrain. An M850 would blur the lines a bit as it could have an S63TU and an M8 could have the M760's 600 horsepower twin turbo V12. There is a lot of speculation here obviously but it is interesting that an 860 V12 model is not on the list but it is entirely possibly BMW already holds that trademark. You would think they would already hold the 850 name as well though as they already built that model. In the opinion of BimmerBoost an 8-Series revival is long overdue. You make more than enough money BMW, do it already. Do we really need another X-Series variant instead? Source

    No. There are no cheats or shortcuts to a strong auto. Auto needs both software control as well as the hardware upgrades. The Nizpro blurb on their website is informative.

    To increase registration and participation speed. You don't have to sign up. Plus you can read the front pages as much as you want. If someone isn't registered what are the odds of them posting? 0% as you can't post without an account which is standard forum practice everywhere. Well, statistics have yet to bear that out. I might change it again to try out though. It's worth considering.
