I'll pull my charge pipe tonight and post a picture with the D tank for grins, its definitely the pipe in the way and not just DVs. Honestly I just like the D tank location for less hoses running back and forth across the engine bay, looks really clean this way.
Oh OK so it is the actual pipe. Thanks for confirming. And I agree completely. "
dont know why u got negged. I agree it looks cleaner than brackets would. does the 335d have DV's? never looked under hood of one till I saw expansion tank pic?
Don't know why either. 335d has OEM brackets already made for that exact location, clean, and costs nothing especially relative to the whole build, so it would have been a no-brainer for me. Anyhow, the 335d has a "turbine control valve", so no DV on the charge piping. "
" Being serious I think an LSD or Coilovers would work well. Most people seem to always want these two items but don't want to spend the money because they may not see an incredible "fun for the money" aspect as much as a tune or FBO. This is in the $1000-$2000 category as well, and I think most people would be interested in this as its a modification with few tradeoffs, especially the LSD. "
" My car has 24,000 miles. For those that run this oil, can you give me some feedback? I currently use BMW"s Castrol 5w30 and want to switch to a different oil. I'm in South Florida, and we are about to go through another hot summer so 90*+ ambient temps are to be expected for this interval. I also hardly drive the car, 3-4k miles a year roughly.
Not to call BS here. But 650 hp on the N54? Really, what turbos were they running? RB's were not available then, even if they were, they are not more then 475-500 on pump, we know they were not spraying meth. So you are saying with a set of stock turbos and pump gas or even race gas they were putting out 650 hp. That's not possible. So I am taking all these "facts" as nothing more then a rumor, as I said stuff like this was said about the N54 when it first came out as well.
