Indeed. Mine was in last week. Got an X3 Step 3.0. Boring (but nice in its own way).

I would suspect Donald Rumsfeld.....his clearly inflated ego would cause Mt. Rushmore to "lift off".

Bingo! That's exactly how it feels. The thing is, the centering spring seems to line up correctly; if I go into 4th, it's no problem, but it feels like the gate is blocking 3rd. The particularly bad...

Balky gearshift

On occasion, the shift lever hangs up going into 3d from either 2d or 4th. It feels like there is something wrong in the gearshift itself rather thann the transmission, as if there were, perhaps, a...

Arf!! The fanatics are cool. For you AA's, remember Rule 62. The e46fas are OK, if a bit young at times; so were you once. I only wish my CPO didn't have a sunroof...I like darkness and LCoG

If I read the TMS site correctly, you have to have non-chamfered hub-faces on the wheels to use the 5mm. Even if mine weren't (they are), it would still be tight up front, although I think it would...

17's need spacers?? Eeek!

I've looked everywhere. I have this set of 17" Breyton Magics, 8.5F and 9.5R with 225 45's on the front and 245 40's for the rear. Problem is, the fronts hang on the brake calipers. I got this rig...

It helps to keep the front decently waxed (or plasticked). I do and the bugs come off pretty easily if I get them within a day or two

OEM Contis (which suck; I have a set of SO3s to put on shortly) with 20K. Looks like the tread is about 1/2 of new. Previous owner was apparently a pretty uninvolved (read slow) driver. I'm running...

In the Spring. 1 AIO, 4 SG, followed by as many coats of Souveran or P21S as I can stand to be bothered with. Fall, 1 AIO, 5 SG; durable and shiny enough for winter.

DSC Sensitivity

The DSC on my car (ZSP) seems terribly sensitive to me. Even some relatively minor bumps activate the sucker even at low speeds. Dealer says "perfectly normal", and maybe so. Any others who think it...

I imagine you could start in 2d w/o damaging the drivetrain, although I'd never do it exept on ice if I had no snows on the car(goes great guns with snows). It sure won't help acceleration, tho. I...

Why is this a cop magnet? The tint? Or overall? My wife tells me mine is too high profile (maybe because I keep it clean), partly because of the tint.

I saw an Imola/Imola on ebay a while back. I thought it looked outstanding! (at least in pics). I think Interlagos/Cin is super-duper.
