There really is no street tire that tests significantly better than the PS2. Along with the new Pirelli PZero and Bridgestone RE11, it's pretty much a toss-up depending upon the reviewer, and they...

It's not hidden at all, but in plain sight. It's about 12" to the left of the oil filter housing (when standing in front of the engine bay), behind the pax side headlight, with a green ring on the...

Keep the clutch pedal depressed, or ignore it. I do the latter. Every M3 does it, whether some have noticed it or not.

Yen is at a long-time low, but the factory in Japan raised his development costs. They may come down to $3700, but not lower. That is an incredible steal for a wheel of this quality, and it beats...

Certainly, no such offense was intended. As I said, such a linkage made about as much sense as your comment, linking Camaros and rednecks.

However, if you look at actual history, there is a...

You sound like one of those BMW "fan boys" who blindly buys anything with the logo on it. Your comment makes about as much sense as linking BMW to the Nazis.:rolleyes:

I'm actually not surprised at all. GM, when it puts it mind to it, can make a very fine high-performance car, and they offer it at a value price, no one can beat. You may not get an interior up to...

Yep, all true. But, as I said above, it's a personal passion/hobby for me, and I enjoy it. Most don't.

In the same way, there are still a few pilots who enjoy hand-flying an airplane, without...

They will be 1/2" wider than the OEM 19s. That means 9.0" (f) and 10.0" (r), and still acceptable for mounting OEM-sized tires or going up to a 255 front, and a 275 or 285 rear. The offsets are to...
