Yes, arguably. The 109 was over designed and because of that, maintenance intensive. Just too much crammed in too small a space. Plus, it lacked the fire power and outward visibility of the Spit...

Yep. Maybe forever as BMW leans more and more toward luxury, frills, and convenience rather than pure sport. At least with the new TT, Audi put it on a crash diet compared to the original TT. I...

Speak for yourself ;-)

I'm single digit body fat, mainly due to running 1200+ miles per year at never slower than 7 minute miles.

Like me, I like my cars/bikes lean as well.
