    These kinds of threads make me wish I had a garage. I'd be out there every day building something.

    Pretty obvious. BMW CEO was recently all over the news about how much they want to increase their profit margin. This is definitely a step in that direction. What we don't know yet is how deep this...

    It would be neat to hijack all of the car data and dump it into an android-based iDrive replacement.

    Has anyone run solid diff bushings without the lockdown kit as a compromise?

    That rear window takes "sexy" and throws it in the garbage bin. Seriously. It looks like a squashed touring.

    We'll just have to chalk it up as them being quintessentially German and actually reading ze fine print!

    What's actually disappointing is that if the fine print were to change, they WOULDN'T...

    Specifically he said that it better atomizes the oil. I suspect that you would still have buildup over time, but the cleaning interval would be much greater than every 10K like I am currently doing.

    Sometimes called N54HP, or N54B30TO as well from what I was digging up. I was talking to a BMW Master Tech on Saturday and he said they revised the RGE/Oil Separator system to deal with the carbon...

    Does anyone have the N54TU documentation (similar to this) that outlines the technical updates to that motor?

    To me, this build defines the word "hobby." It certainly doesn't make sense, but if you're having fun, I am happy for ya! And, it's an interesting read! Thanks for sharing this!

    I also had an X1 loaner. It was hilarious. Fun. Entertaining. And that N20 was, and I feel weird to say this, really fun with the 8 speed automatic. I'd have it in a manual too, it was just like...

    Well, clearly they don't need one when they can race a Z4 that doesn't technically exist as a production car. It's bull$#@! right?

    Well, McLaren made a hybrid. Why not M? :D There's absolutely no reason why we can't have an... Mi8? With...I dunno, something to give the big boys a run for their money. Throw a huge amount of...

    I feel like M should now be its own entity. Lose the roundel and go nuts.

    Vivid Racing is just made up of sketchy sales people with an appetite for the gullible.

    Yeah, when I bought my injectors and the decouplers there were no additional parts or tools needed. It's very straightforward. I didn't buy from ECS but the OEM part numbers are the same.

    Yeah, I need one of those friends too. Best I could get is wholesale prices on injectors, which is still a lot! Mine must have been pretty bad because the difference in the way the car runs in...

    I pulled the plugs on mine, if the plug smells like fuel then the injector is leaky. Replaced bank 2 injectors when i found that #6 was leaking, and the car feels amazing now compared to how it ran...

    He's not swapping a V8. He's not doing anything because any kind of swap is beyond his technical ability.

    I've been playing around with INPA since I finally got it running right. Unfortunately it's all in German. I found the waterpump tests and voltage monitoring (I think) for the injectors. If anyone...
