Radio was blasting some good classic rock. Got home and didn't want to get out of the car. What a performance machine! Depressed because we have no autobahn here. Going to work late more often now so I don't have to fight traffic and enjoy this fine piece of engineering and what it iwas designed for. Anyone else have this problem?

This is a recurring issue primarily among N54 owners. 328i pilots are aware of it, M3 drivers are embarrassed by it, but those with a 335i must live with the reality of this additive behavior.

When one is 'Juiced,' euphoric sensation permeates the entire driving experience. It imbues a new, sparkling feeling at a standing start and enables surprisingly rapid trips to 80 mph, often unintentional as one reaches high velocity before that seems possible.

'Juicebox' abuse is often manifested as odd behavior....a lack of inhibition....unusual feelings of good will and personal power....a profound and lasting change of mood.

Whether in use or not, this threat to natural order is difficult to detect. Though clearly modified in behavior, there may be no other change in appearance or verifiable history.

Often, however, there are physiological changes seen by looking deep within. Keep an eye out for aftermarket coilovers, M parts, and mechanical limited slip differentials, all too often collateral to 'Juicing.'
