      Ah, gotcha, thanks. I guess I haven't been around them enough; only ever noticed it puff right when they go to WOT, like corner exit at the track. :beer:

      Really? How is that even possible...stored up soot in the exhaust? I am a wee bit skeptical. :laugh:

      Thanks! Sometime I'll have to post up my RCs in Off Topic.

      2-3 gear ratios should be plenty, 5 is indeed overkill especially with the closer ratios a gas engine likes. I think a clutch is still needed though; maybe not for setting off, but there's still a...

      Why yes, yes it is. Of course they don't mind being at 0RPM and are easier to re-start, but if the torque demand is more than they can produce at 0RPM electric motors will absolutely bog and shake...

      Yes, exactly. They do get worse MPG in hard use, but for many people that's isolated. I remember the Top Gear stunt where they put a Prius on track at 10/10 and paced an E92 behind it which did...

      Yeah, turbos just dump fuel in track driving. My Mk5 got around 8mpg and my 982 does 5-6, both being low 30mpg cars on the street. I think my Mk7 did better than those with the water cooled manifold,...

      I mean, everything he says is correct, but I don't think Jason's ever been a fan of turbos and this comes off a bit like rhetoric to me. Most people spend more time getting where they're going than...

      We had a Cooper 4-dr as a rental car; I have to say, coolest start/stop button of any car I've ever been it. It feels as sturdy to press as it looks. :thumbup:...

      Nah, still sad. Those sticky Trofeo R's must've picked up so much gravel getting it there. :laugh:

      And of course a Q7, as nice as it is, will never drive like an E46.

      TBH I think it would be awesome if you went for it, and I believe you [eventually] would be happy with the result. I just also...

      Bolded part might be an assumption though. Even with "turn key" kits like these and doing labor yourself, other things start to add up. Some possibilities:

      Might as well flush the coolant while...

      I voted 'Stahp'. Cool thing about your E46 is that it's fun but reasonable. If you're serious about fast+tuned BMWs, I would probably look to trade it for something N54. A 135i would be crazy fun,...

      If Cabin's out, does this open up TCL pricing option? I definitely don't need a 996...but... :laugh:

      That's too bad. I'll share one of my fondest memories of Autoweek, which isn't possible with the digital version.

      Around 2009 when MB came out with the E-Class coupe, i thought it was just a...

      Kind of a loaded question. We come here to discuss cars because they're extremely relevant to our interests; around like-minded people of course that interest can snowball. Maybe cars are a little...

      If you're like me, you'll miss it some, but not enough to have ill-regard to the automatic nor to inspire a rash purchase. You'll probably also reach for a clutch that isn't there now and then when...

      Yup, there's discussions out there that make the 'Which coilovers should I buy?' threads look like Einstein wrote them.

      Agreed. Performance winters have very little tradeoff, and studless have more but are still are fine IMO; we run WS90s on the M240i. Yes, the steering is lighter and slower to respond, there's a bit...
