A few people on BFC have them, it shouldn't vibrate much more than now if at all. It's rubber to absorb power and reduce the beating on the rest of the car, from things like launching, hard shifts, drag racing, ect.

Yea, it's held up so far with no issues. Idk how it will hold at the strip though.

And on the other hand I've heard of quite a few guys killing ZFs with 2.5Ls.

That is a good price, very good.

Paint it the gold, but you have to leave the polished lip.

Take your foot of the brake, apply gas, and go.

Honestly? Just because. I love the 540, don't get me wrong, but there were a few other cars calling me to give them a little try for a while so we'll see how that goes.

And I'm talking about STEEP hills where cars stack up behind you. You have to use the ebrake, it's simply not possible to do otherwise without slipping the sh*t out of your clutch (see Sama's method) or rolling back a bunch.

Yea.

I have 42s and I get 20 city 30 highway.

I wouldn't get a higher diff either, I hate being at 3k at 70mph, but that's just me.

How do you drive it? I get on mine pretty hard a good bit of the time.

What other cars are in mind? Without giving away what it is.

Nah, just dump the clutch and watch everyone stare

You have a turbo though...That doesn't count...

I drive relatively conservatively...

I pretty much gun freeway onramps and tunnels...but other than that I'm pretty mellow...

Hmm, you got the HG replaced right?

How many miles do you get per a normal tank?

Is the 318 transmission even weaker?

double post. i can get 600 miles to the tank if i feather it. but in a 318.... feathering it is like idle.

How do you guys feel about a m50 wiring harness... all accesories.. ecu and trannsmission for 350$

Has 128k on it.


Was in a bmw that crashed... upon impact the Engine mount broke.

So does that include the engine?

If not, it's still not a bad deal, but I thought you wanted power, and the M50 does not fulfill that void.

Could just be surface rust, if there is any.

Where was it stored?

I would at least bring some oil, fill er full, and turn the crank over.
