This is funny, especially when you compare the N20/N26 to previous generation of engines, such as the M52. Now define "BMWness".

And while every single BMW I have owned since the E36 chassis has...

I drove my MIL's Lexus IS250 and it had ventilated/heated seats. It's too bad BMW doesn't even offer it as an option.

The ride was so bone jarring it reminded me why I opted for DHP.

If you didn't give the brakes a chance to cool properly they will smoke, or worse. It's just that simple. Cool them down properly... and a quarter of a mile isn't enough if you really flogged them.

Brake fade at 30mph? Doubtful. You probably experienced the limitations of the RFTs vs brake fade at such low speeds.

I know a 328i manual will hit the top speed limiter with no problem. I was actually surprised at how it well it pulls even after passing the 140mph mark.
