the S54 isn't really a high torque motor. I've taken apart an E46 front diff and it's really not that weak either - the E30 ix's front diff is much weaker, and it'll take 300-400hp. And isn't the...

it's a % of the secdion width. so the height of a 225/40 sidewall is 225mm*.4, and the 225/35 is 225mm*.35.

I'd never do another set of headers without a ceramic coat, SS or not. they will run cooler and stay nice a lot longer.

you can change it to 6mt and turn on the CSL oil level in NCSexpert but AFAIK you need a CSL coded DME to match it for the readout to work.

what? how would you have any idea how much I've spent on my car? Why would that even matter? is it a dick measuring contest?

I like both, but if you want a reliable, fuel efficient, cheap to maintain DD that also handles well and is decently quick, the US E36 M3 is a hard car to surpass.

what's less constructive; you saying anyone who wants a CSL airbox shouldn't bother because you can't afford it. Or letting people do what they want to do to their own cars?

I see two posting. ;)

1) "much less"? about 200-300lbs. it's not *that* much. and more importantly, the weight distribution is the same (~52/48 f/r).
