    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.

    We...

    Exactly this...

    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....

    Here's an excerpt (sorry, a bit off topic)

    The electric motor does far more than just add extra ultimate power and torque. The instant response of the electric motor provides sharper throttle...

    I understand what you are saying, but it's really not the same. A LOT of guys who race their car will not go FI simply because you cannot balance the chassis with the throttle mid-corner as easily as...

    This += 10000... I REALLY want to love the car, and kinda do - but I just have a feeling that lag is going to kill me in comparison with what I am used to. It's not going to feel like I am driving...

    Two things from me - one, the amount of body roll in the M4 is near-zero... Impressive - very impressive. It's one of the flattest cars I have seen this side of a 911 with PASM. They did a good job...

    What an awesome car... The M3 is an excellent (if not one of the best) cars - but pushing the power curve makes for a near-supercar in my book. Hold onto that thing for as long as you possibly can!

    Beautiful craftsmanship and engineering - and furthermore beautiful car (like the color combo/lowered stance/LED angels). I really need to drive a blown M3 - I am getting the itch after reading more...

    Has anyone ever posted an official ring time for the e9x M3 DCT/DSG? I am curious to see what the difference would be over the course of 13-14 miles. F1 claims that they shifted 60 times over the 3.2...

    You know what, I am going to renege on my above post a bit. The guy didn't really do too much wrong, and we have all had $#@!ty days, and have talked to our coworkers about it. I think there is a bit...

    Nope. I would murder him (of course, this is just in my dreams - and maybe someone hijacked my keyboard). $#@! this guy - if he doesn't want a job, or doesn't like to work on a car just because "the...

    Good point... I never really thought like that. I had a friend with a high 8s car - trapping insane numbers. Point being, it's (was) a drag car - and was made to launch. Totally different from a good...

    Backing up here though, what bike did you have more trouble with? Guessing the R1 considering mods - was he 100%? That seems like it would be an easier win for him, but maybe not. I have no idea what...

    Yeah, tax shelters are a good thing to think about - but you might want to weigh options even then... Again, if you are guaranteeing me that I am going to be in good health, and not be dead before 60...

    Great advice, and excellent post.

    The only thing I would say different (for me) is on the 401 k... I think they are scams. There is a difference between median and mean age of death.

    It's sad to me, because this is how people first (usually) get into cars. I can remember waiting for my R&T/Motortrend when I was younger, and would flip to the meat of the newest article to get the...

    I read the article and thought the same thing.

    These days, people will take this quote (this was front page news on another site) and honestly think it's as capable as an M3. I really don't...

    Sorry bout that, didn't mean to be a confusing jag.

    I get it, I really do. BMW is going after the guys who have loved and still love their 335i - and are thinking this is a huge step up, and it is. It's also a "step up" from the current M3 - however,...
