Even though it's unfortunately bigger and heavier I would be looking at the GT 350. By all accounts FOMOCO has done a masterful job in dialing in both feel and driver engagement despite these...

All sins will be forgiven if they get the steering right. If it's the same rack as in the M3/M4, then it's not going to cut it for me. It may be better than the other eps failures this company has...

I had an '01 E46 with the 3/36 and an '03 E46 that came with the 4/48 so it changed over in either MY 2002 or 2003.

That's a great interior. It's pretty much not changed from my MK V R32 that I've had for 8+ years now with almost 90k miles on the odo. Nobody does a better job when it comes to practicality and...

Actually MSRP was $3900, but only $2700 more than an SP optioned car which any enthusiast would have ordered anyway.

Would have liked to have kept mine as well.

Five of the generations could lay claim to be the UDM, regardless of how you optioned it.

Fairly reminiscent of this similarly innocuous phantom action that wound up breaking badly in the end.
