Any thoughts on the 2015 Bordeaux Futures? K&L wines has got them up for sale right now. http://www.klwines.com/

I think the Overture is worth is if you can get it for <$100
What do you suggest that is a competitor to Insignia in the $150 price range or less? Been shopping around. Haven't found anything yet.

Couple more from a blind tasting:
1999 Turnbull Red wine. No clue what was in this. I didn't search hard to find out. Placed just behind the Insignia.
2010-2011? Ridge Montebello: Fell well...

Memorable ones in the past 6 months.
1983 Chateau Margaux. Superb
2003 Insignia. Not as good as the 2002 but excellent as always.
2012 Brane Cantenac Margaux. Undervalued at <$50 a bottle....

Flawed argument? My argument is that Motortrend is in the business of selling magazines and racking up youtube hits. The minutia you want them focus on will not accomplish their end goal.

Impressive skills? Very much so...

Most people watch those videos for entertainment value. 95% of people watching that video don't give a $#@! about S55 this and N54 that. This has literally NOTHING to do with "thinking" as you put...

Every time I read your commentary on a Motortrend article all I think is :crazy:
Give it a rest. These are 10-15 min videos meant to entertain.
Oh, and Pobst is 10x the driver you will ever be.

Wholly irresponsible driving. You morons are lucky you didn't nail someone in that second video.
Promoting this on facebook.... that is a completely different level of stupidity.
You have replaced everything but the car at this point. How many more theories are you willing to test?
I had the same issue and posted about it a long time ago. I replaced a lot of what you...
I used this Walmart battery on my 07 e90. http://www.walmart.com/ip/EverStart-MAXX-H8-Automotive-Battery/16782659
It fit perfectly. Has the needed vent tube.
It's been in for about 3 months...

In for the win
E90,E91,E92,E93: Pull sensor and zip tie out of the way. It...
Pull sensor and zip tie out of the way. It completely fixed any noise I had from that location.
Is this setup for the N54? I see on the Aquamist website there is an option to select an N54 specific controller.
This. Sounds real good with stock mufflers and catless downpipes.

Maybe another option?
Between Lvl 10, 517, and IPT one of these guys ought to be able to make a transmission that can handle the power.

Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think the new pump is going to solve your timing drops. Changing the fuel or the timing target will.

Here is what my car does with a little throttle blip from idle.
05-13-2014, 10:06 AM
Where was it cracked? Where should I be looking for a crack?
05-10-2014, 03:25 PM
I have the exact same issue. I posted a video awhile ago. I can get the car to stall out with a throttle blip at idle. How did you find the crack? I replaced all the vacuum lines but never found a...

My actual load never seems to go above 190.

So do we know what those API and IFH tracelevel settings actually do?
Wow your LTFTs are solid. Mine are all over the place compared to yours.
Can you take some screen shots of your scalar tables and the spool table you mentioned and post them here for reference.
My LTFTs aren't exactly pretty either.
I looked for boost leaks, vacuum leaks, etc and never came up with anything.
Normal. I have tons of logs of a significant variance between the two banks on STFTs. I chased the issue by replacing the pre-cat O2 sensors and it made no difference. The injectors and HPFP are...
