You need to google car leasing

I have only leased one car, my daughter's Audi (at an effective rate of just about zero) so I am no expert but it sounds like you don't even know the basics. Yes there is a rate involved and it...

Re: BMW E92 - Any Experience?

I got to drive a 335 diesel as a loaner while my M3 was being serviced, these are my observations. Lots of torque, but narrow rpm band. I could actually spin the tires off the line, and it still...

Re: E92 m3 zcp dct to 997 c2s pdk sport chrono +

When I bought my m3 I looked at a wide range of cars, from the r8 v10 and gallardo to the cts-v and Mercedes c63. There is little question that the r8 or Lamborghini will go around a track faster...

Re: New to the Forum: M3 Sedan/Coupe vs. Convertible?

A convertable is fine if you dont care about having the same performance as an m3. I have had a convertable since 1980 and i just dont get them. You can't use it in the rain or snow, you get all hot...

Re: IND installs another E90 M3 carbon fiber roof

So the original roof panel weighs 24 lbs. (including some sound insulation). The Carbon fiber panel weighs 9.8 lbs (not including the sound insulation). Then you add in the adhesive and some sound...

Re: Installed the Macht Schnell Stage I Air Intake Kit

It would be hard to imagine that you could feel, or even measure the effect of, 6-8 (or even 10) HP out of 414HP. Carrying even a small child in the car would probably have more of an effect on...

I checked the standard atmosphere tables

The 335 has about 72% as much power as an M3. The altitude at which the M3 would have 72% power is about 9500 ft. But it isn't quite that simple. Those tables are based on an average temperature...

Re: V8 or I4? 2 or 4? cockpit or pilion?

Re: V8 or I4? 2 or 4? cockpit or pilion?

Since I have not viewed the video before posting I must assume that the competition involves getting 4 people and their belongings from point A to point B as fast and comfortably as possible. Or...

Re: E90 Ordered

I would hate to deal with a busted anything on an out of warranty M3. I have had a half dozen German car over the past decade. The first was a 740il that I had a fair bit of trouble with. I saw...

Please help me to understand, when I read this I thought that maybe my brain had stopped working.

Why do you want a manual?

Re: 2008 m3's price vs m5's

Reviews for the M5 were not great. The SMG was singled out for almost universal scorn, but many reviewers also didn't care much for the handling and feel of the car. I have not driven an M5 myself...

I'm assuming that you are kidding but, on the off chance that you are serious, keep this in mind. On your manual, no nav, basic sound, no option M3, there are dozens of interconnected computers. ...

Re: Intro and Pondering a M3/E93!

My wife really wanted me to get the M3 convertible but after looking at the specs and the car itself I just couldn't do it. The rear seat in the convertible is only useful for packages and toddlers...

Re: BASE cloth seats vs. Leather. Pro/cons please!

I am not a huge fan of leather but I do have to disagree with those that say that leather doesn't wear as well as cloth. I have a 10 year old Audi with leather seats. I cleaned the seats maybe 3...

Re: what is the best exhaust for a 2008 e92 under 10k!!

It depends on what you are hoping for from your new exhaust. If it is power you are after then you will almost certainly be disappointed with whatever you buy. If you want more noise then almost...

Re: ordering a 2012

I could be wrong but it is my understanding that there probably won't be any M3 in 2012, and then there will eventually be a new M3 based on the new 3 series. The new M3 will have a 6 cyl turbo...

Nicely done

I really appreciate when someone attempts to do an objective test (scientific method) and looks at what variable might effect the outcome, and then controls those variables. You did about as good an...

Re: Saw this coming out of dinner...

Just curious, how do you know this was the new M5 test car? Couldn't it have been a regular 5 series?
