Re: ABS issues

Re: What happens in Vegas...

Wait, a lift off the throttle fixed your oversteer? Magic electronics have to be at work.

Re: Likely selling my Euro Spec (boo!) US Sale possible?

There is really nothing substantively different between this car and the Officially imported Canadian versions. I know there are subtle differences but they drive the same.

Keep the car. You will regret parting with it. It grows under your skin and replacing it will be difficult.

Re: Brake pad by country: What do you use?

I kid you not. 20 km and the wheel is visibly dusted. A tank full of gas and the front wheels are coal black. I have standard BMW pads on my E46 M3 and they dust far far less. The car was washed last...

Re: Brake pad by country: What do you use?

Hawk HP+ Good grip when cold, great grip and pedal feel when hot but dust like crazy. 20 km driven gently and the wheels are dusted black. Reasonably disc friendly.

Re: Should I rebuild VANOS?

The 94 Euro was officially imported into Canada and is not considered a grey market car by BMW Canada. I know your car is imported from Japan but the car is supported.

Re: Best STREET Coilovers

The suspension hard points are identical. The only differences between the US cars and ROW cars is minor tuning differences in springs and shocks. So yes it will fit as long
