As a long time subscriber to C&D, I have read many an article where they describe the roads in Michigan (where they are based) as being rough and pot holed. Granted, many of the tests they do today...

You may not be saving your tranny, but you will save the throw-out bearing on your clutch. When sitting at a dead stop, like at a stop light, it is a good idea to put the trans in neutral and take...

Thanks for the thoughts, Kamdog.

I did run some numbers through KBB. For the 330i, I got a trade value of ~$20K and a retail value of ~26K. For my TSX, the low-book trade value was $12,225. ...

Check out Milltek. They are renown for their quality and non-ricer tone in the Audi world, and they do make an exhaust for E92 335i.

They must not be popular here in H-Town. I just say my first 135i today - Black with Red interior, and what looked like a middle aged woman at the wheel. Cute factor in effect.

I know this as well, since I-10 was the road that took me from my beloved Cali all the way to H-Town. We would have been on I-40, but I got my TSX reflashed by Hondata through a shop in Wilmington...

I think BMW needs to clarify what makes their 7 speed DSG unique for high power. The Bugatti Veyron has 1001 HP and a 7 speed DSG, which, to me, would make VW the first to have such a transmission.

335 may not be a dedicated sports car like those you mention, but BMW invented the sports sedan. 3 + ZSP demands a manual.

Everyone here is forgetting what the real apples to apples comparison is: 335Xi to S5. Solely for price comparison, that is a more accurate pair.
