I thought it was due to outdated maps, but it happens to me even when I'm trying to find stuff that's been there forever - not just new roads that may have been made after my nav system software....

I was just getting ready to start a thread about the nav, but figured I would post it here. My main gripe about the nav is that it struggles to find about 30% of the addresses I enter. When a...

Like others on here have said, I can create the lag on purpose by mashing the throttle at low rpms. But if I'm driving normally, I never notice any lag at all.

I have sport suspension and Koni FSD on my car. No bounce. Feels more planted and firm than stock shocks, but impacts are less harsh.

There is a good chance you have summer tires on your car. If that's the case, you could be totally screwed when you get up north. If it's dry, take it easy and you'll be fine. But hit an icy patch...

Yes, from what I understand, the Koni's work fine with stock spring and most run them with stock springs - unless they want to lower the ride height.

I also have the Pilot Supersports for my summer tire. My winter tires are RFT, so I can't wait to get the Michelins back on the car. Just a few more weeks now.

Given how bad the potholes are this winter, I think we need to bring back the Pothole Explosions thread for old times' sake.

I have the same setup. Much improved, but still not F30 territory. Of course the F30s I've driven haven't had sport package, so it's apples to oranges.

For those who said "no change," how could that be? Take a ballon, blow it up and sit on it. Chances are, it will pop. I'm assuming that's due to an increase in pressure, no?

I think mine fell into the "suck big time" category. I seriously couldn't move an inch. They were almost as bad as summer tires.

You might want to look into Koni FSDs as well - but I'm not sure they make them for your E93. Combined with 18" go-flat tires, that's about as good as it's going to get. Still a bit noisy and fussy...

I'd be pissed about the scratch. But if you step back and look at the big picture, it's not going to affect your enjoyment of the car one bit. Not worth fuming over. As for the smell, don't worry....
