No suitcase is going to fly out of the back seat. There is very little draft, the straps are simply to keep things from shifting. I didn't have any straps and had no trouble at all up to 130mph with...

Based on the rules I don't think I can play. :cry:

Even at $8 a gallon you would still never recoup the additional cost of a hybrid (again, that's based just on BMW's advertised MSRP and mileage numbers). I did look at how high the price would have...

Of course. When you're going to argue that 35hp additional hp is a selling point when it's more than wasted by the 300lbs of weight. So, again, what's the point? Why not add 100 hp and 900lbs of...

Go back to the basic numbers. BMW builds a car that is heavier, slower, and more complicated than it's own non-hybrid. Your "butt dyno" is wrong. BMW's own site lists 0-60 as 5.2 sec vs 5.1 for the...

My M3 Vert is perfectly confortable on long trips and the adjustability of the suspension/power/steering and seating makes a big difference. Top down wind noise/buffeting is minimal which makes long...

Usable for what? If anyone in front has even average length legs it's extremely cramped unless the backseat passenger is a kid in which case headroom is pretty much irrelevant.

Looks like they fixed the one bad aspect of the E92's looks, the roofline which, IMHO, was just too high. The side vent is an interesting idea but the black trim on it doesn't work. Overall, it's...

The 335i with sport package is a significantly more performance oriented drive. Yes, the RFT's are rougher than non-RFT, especially with 19" Wheels. Also, the N54 engine in the 335i has a history...

I think the correct solution would simply be to renumber your cars and only then get rid of number 2.

Go back to the original mount. It looks "finished" and I seriously doubt there any measurable differerence in airflow to the radiators.
