What are you trying to accomplish? With the prodigious torque and 6 speeds, I am never at a loss for the proper gear on the street.
I am trying to accomplish better acceleration and shorten my gearing. A 2.81 rear end really bogs down the car's acceleration and reduces its potential power delivery over time.

Perhaps you should enroll in a BWW CCA high-performance driving school. Ya think?
What does that have anything to do with the question I asked? I see no relevance. Maybe I'm missing something.
