Someone needs to help get rid of the GT models! I pulled up next to a 550i GT the other day and.......YUCK! Cannot figure out BMW's reason for making that car. What gap in the market does it fill?

By the way.....I just did the tranny reset. Although I haven't driven it yet, I can tell that the throttle response is MUCH BETTER. I bet things are better for me tomorrow.
