6/2011 South African build, I had two new coils earlier this year after CELs under heavy acceleration... I am kind of annoyed that all of them weren't replaced.

Let's face it, the automatic transmission of today is a really good machine. They have more forward gears which means better acceleration and fuel economy, plus they can shift faster than humans can.

Not a bad idea, but on many back roads around New England this means you would probably be driving 35mph or less most of the time.

I might flash a grin, that's about it. E39 and 6 Grand Coupes usually earn a full smile.

More recent model years have solved the problem by making the DRL the turn signal itself. It turns yellow and starts blinking.

It seems to me when you have 2.0T fourbangers pumping out 240-270hp today, it's making the "300hp" turbo I6 look a bit more wheezy than it did in 2007.

I'm a bit at a loss as to why all these guys who apparently want minimum 0-60 times are wasting their hard earned dollars on 335s. Just buy a $30k Mustang GT and be done with it.

It looks quite floaty. Are we sure that is not a 4GC body on some Buick from the 70s?

When it is below freezing out, I don't need drier air. There is already little moisture in the air. These are the same engineers who decided we need to hear a chime at 37 degrees.

I've found if it's more than about 50 degrees outside, I need the A/C on for the climate control system to be able to maintain 70 degrees. Otherwise it is too warm, as you noticed.

I think most of the E90 328 automatic transmissions were built (by GM) in France, although the Monroney sticker for mine built in mid 2011 says Germany.
