Also what is the deal with the oil coolers? If i have a 6spd manual, with a oil cooler, will I have any issues? I do plan to track the car when I turn 18 and what would you recommend in terms of performance upgrades beyond stiff suspension? What performance mods are less that 1k and good for everyday driving and having a little fun on the streets? I know this car is fast, but I drove a sl55 amg last month and it changed my perspective on speed. Also what is faster a E90 or a E92? Or are they relatively similar? Thank you for all the advise in advance!
Mileage actually improves sufficient to pay for a JB4 over time, yet you enjoy the benefit! 21 mpg here.

Setting up for track use costs....expect $7500 in parts to really do the job. Saw the pic - you may have some cosmetics to fix, possibly mechanical. Hey, you're replacing parts anyway....keep us posted!
