" Why is it that its hate if someone is not praising your car? Its not like something was said to bash you. The S54 did win the event and an E92 M3 won as well. I don't understand how ppl get so emotional on this site when someone mentions certain peoples' cars. "

For 700 that's a good trade off. I'd say some of the biggest problems and I'm guilty are people buying the 3+ even though they will never see over 550 ft lbs due to the few reports that were out there that 2+ and 3+ were basically the same so you might as well get the 3+. I've since heard a few people say that 2+ is definitely less chattery and grippy. As for the trans noises, aren't the springs in the clutch disc supposed to have similar affects as the DMFW just with alot less travel. Any chance that softer disc springs or some sort of progressive spring would help the trans chatter? "

Well in all fairness, we are driving BMW's. We kind of paid "extra" for engineering and comfort, not just speed. We would all be driving EVO's and STI's if that were the case. "

Haha.. thats funny. Let the shit talking begin. FWIW every spring i get my car out and run ~400whp daily driver tunes i get all excited. Then quickly realize its not enough and start with E85 map 7 daily driving. "

inlineS54B32 replied to the thread Article: So remember how the new 2015 F80 M3 was supposed to be much lighter than the E90 M3? It isn't. Curb weight measured at 3562 pounds.
" That's pretty cool - I am glad they ended up using a Lithium Ion battery - that's cool. Since the battery is usually at the extreme ends of the car, weight removed from these areas is important - and 30 lbs is a decent amount. I can feel the difference in my M3 when it's filled with luggage, and am assuming a heavy battery farther back in a single corner even makes more difference.

That's cool - but the total number is BS, and again - heads need to roll. "

With the issues you've endured i am sure you know what its like to be away from your car (a quick car) for a period of time. When that happens you forget what its like to be in something that is fast. Now look at @Sticky situation... Sticky hasn't been in a fast car in like 10 years, I'm sure the TT M3 felt like a rocket... "

That would be awesome because I find FB groups more active and easier to use. The only downside to a FB group is that you can't search for previous posts. "
