Congrats MoldCAD!! I've had my eye on the M235xi. The slogan Ultimate Driving Machine comes to mind whenever I think of the 2er. :thumbup:

Agreed, S7s & S8s - no, but S4-6, and A4-7 - yes. A8s pretty much don't care, but they appear to be driven by former Lincoln owners. :rofl:

That's funny. When I drove a Merc SL, I had Bimmers challenging me all of the time, but in the 650, I only get the occasional Audi that thinks he has something to prove. :rofl:

Maybe you have a stuck open exhaust flap. Some guys will even zip-tie their flaps opens for an more aggressive exhaust note.
