I have heard the same from a few BMW indy's here in town. I'm at almost 160k now and it feels as strong or stronger than it did when I bought it with 80k on it. Stronger because of the upgrades I guess. Not as strong as a v8 though

Mods: Shark Injected | Magnaflow Exhaust + Resonator | H&R Springs | Bilstein SP Shocks + Struts | TMS Power Pulleys
Eibach F+R Sways | BeastPower Brackets | M-Tech bumpers | Predator ICE V3 + HID Fogs | Eurodyne CF Hood | BSW Sub + Dice + spec dock
