    I do not disagree.

    But let's not forget the spoiled child parents leasing factor. The majority of people who buy 3 series are not kids. The majority on certain forums seem to be. It is a combo of that and internet savvy.

    I never in my entire life ever saw my father or his friends on car forums, or even on the internet for that matter.

    I wish you luck, because you will need it. Even with fuel you are going to hit what? Maybe mid 500's at best on race?

    I really believe 500whp is reaching the limits of the hotsides on your turbos. They are really small for a 3L
