I was being empathetic in telling you I would also be upset about taking such a big hit. Why would you feel the need to post a response that you "can well afford the hit". Do you think I or any one...

Depreciation

Most of the German cars depreciate like crazy. I have always found it to be much more cost effective to either lease or purchase lightly used. I would also be upset if I took the kind of hit you took.

Hi,
It depends if you are going to track the car. If so you can end up with heat soak with the stock intercooler which will reduce power. In that case an upgraded intercooler will allow you to...

I know you had a ton of trouble with your car and that is a big bummer. However depreciation on these cars is brutal after 18 months, 36 months, 48 months etc.... Same thing with Mercedes and Audi.

Tune suggestion

Hi,

Thanks for the maintenance schedule.

I would start with the sprint booster v3. It does not add any horsepower but the throttle response is far crisper and more immediate. There is a fair...

Sprint Booster V3
