I used to run Wintersport 3Ds -AND- Wintersport M3s at one time or another. Both are VERY good winter performance tires. I can't tell you the sense of satisfaction I had when I -very easily- drove...

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to checking out the M2. As long it isn't TOO cramped in the back seats I think this guy's the #1 choice for my next car. At least among BMWs.

So the 328's run single-electrode plugs? I didn't know that.

Thanks!

I read on their site last night that they do not recommend that the end-user re-gaps the multi-electrode (well, technically the rare-metal multi-electrode) plugs, because of the fragility...

You really should get one you know. They're not that expensive, and it's more important for these engines--aluminum heads.

Still, as long as you didn't tighten those plugs down hard, you're...

This is a dumb (and unlikely) cause, but the upside to this is that it is extremely cheap to check. What if the problem is in the keys? As in, the batteries have weakened too low to operate.

I expect to see the daily driver/commuter "chauffeur car" and the track-day/weekend specials split.

Honestly, I wouldn't mind an autonomous commuter. My commute is a straight line of 19 highway...

Another vote for the NON-runflat Michelin Pilot Super Sports. I run them for my summer set, and they're quite good--smooth and relatively low noise. Very good grip too.

As an aside: I'm probably...

Considering how moonscape-level pothole-ish it always is around here, I'm betting my original shocks are about gone any way.

Ah I see.

I'm seriously considering getting this done; I'm not going to attempt to do this one myself I think, but I'll just get an Indy or the dealership to do it.

Hey Zoomie: What do you mean 90% of the sportiness? Do you mean that stiff feeling, or do you mean actual cornering/bump performance?

Hey thanks for the info! I'm considering going this route (Koni FSDs), but have to decide how much longer I'm keeping this car. Bought new (factory order) in '07, has just under 85k miles on it.

Just for fun I want to a big BMW aftermarket supplier and looked at their Koni FSD sets. The first hit was for a shock-and-spring set: Koni FSDs + Eibach springs. I don't want lowering springs....

Let me add one more thing. And this is just a guess on my part, but I suspect that the runflat tires also add to the car's rear end skipping around with bumps in corners.

Just as you say, the runflats give a harsher ride, especially with the sport suspension.
