Nice gains. I could swear I've seen this before somewhere :laughing-rofl:

If the shifting is automated, it's automatic. If they shifts are performed manually, it's manual. Pressing a button isn't shifting, it's triggering an automated sequence.
DCT's days are numbered...

On the 128i and 328i you can retrofit the DISA valves from a 330i, X5 3.0si, X3 3.0si or Z4 3.0si ($150 for the parts used), flash on a BMW tune, and be at 272 HP, NA, with factory reliability (as...

Weird, as I remember it, you posted pictures of one of my project cars on the site your parents bought you.
Though, in your defense, I don't think you knew it was my car when you did it.

performance /= handling

BMW went to a V8 because there was nothing to be had from the I6 and they needed to stay competitive with Audi and MB. Their racing program may have benefited from that move, but that's not why they...

I'm not really sure why you're hung up on the race car. A wagon existing would not make the race car not exist or take away the engine. Who cares which shape of car they base the race car on, anyway?...

A different 4.0 liter naturally aspirated high revving V8. :handgestures-thumb:
The M3 is still less than 2/3 the price, more fuel efficient when comparing cars of the same generation, and has...

The current M3 sedan already uses coupe headlights, so it's pretty safe to say the wagon would have as well. So there you go-- similar levels of parts sharing with the race program :D

The M5 is not nearly as rewarding to drive on a back road, has higher running costs, uses significantly more gas, and in the F10/F30 generation, I find has a less useable back seat (at 6'4, I can sit...

The wagon isn't a watering down. Automated gearboxes, turbos, isolation from the road, SUV awd M cars, electronics that drive the car for you, and excess weight is what's dumbing them down modern...

More rigid chassis, more practical.
The brilliance of the M3 is it combines sportiness and practicality. An M3 wagon would do that better. Minimal decrease in sport, huge increase in practical.
That is one of the things Sticky does when people disagree with him. That way you can't post links, pics, etc to back up your argument, making it easier for him to appear to win arguments even when...

The stock ECU can take 50 flashes. After that it goes into limp mode, and the only solution is a new ECU.
Some tuners get around that by not reflashing the VIN, which makes it so the flash...
Yep, was agreeing with you.
Those are fairly retro. Most people on here probably don't know what they are :rolleyes:
Lol at light boxes for the DDEs. That dates those pics!

Just because BMW calls it something doesn't make it true.
Ponder this: It's called a "Sequential Manual Gearbox", yes? Is it a sequential gearbox? That's something that has a very specific...

Yes, having no clutch pedal or manual shifter is what makes it an automatic.
SMG has automated gear changing. Automation is the basis of an automatic transmission. To be manual it must have...

Is it automated? Than it's an automatic.
Button pressing to shift isn't doing anything manually, it's pressing a button to trigger an automated sequence.
Certainly there's various types of...

Which is what? Making a thread an posting about it? That's what he did with his VF kit on the 46 and Gintani kit on the e92 when he got it. Why should he not with the ESS kit?
04-24-2011, 01:57 AM
Switching kits after your engine blows up just seems like common sense to me :P
Why would he want to repeat that experience? Maybe he just learned his lesson and wised up. Just because Gintani...

Not sure "threat" is quiet the right word. :rolleyes:
I think most people would first go with "annoying," "spoiled," "agenda pushing," or "obnoxious."
Hard to say, though :think:
04-13-2011, 03:35 PM
Not exactly any fool-- you, for example, are banned on most BMW forums. Makes it hard :think:

The gintani house of cards has been experiencing strong gusts, recently :scared-eek:
