They were using a V8, which is technically not based on a production model M3. That is the reason for the creation of the CSL.

McGuiar's Pro #0 is the best I've found, the only one that leaves absolutely no residue. :thumbup: (not the pink stuff in the clear bottle...) Zymol "Auto Shampoo" is pretty good too.

I've used it for years, works great. How are you using it?

It WILL NOT remove serious imperfections or chips. It may take more than one use. Pretty much supposed to use it until it IS smooth.

The 7 has already grown on me. See quite a few of them on the road around here now. The chromes don't look good on that car, and they are too small for sure.

*indicated* 125 going uphill with a passenger.



To properly break in an engine, you need to take it all the way to redline at least once or twice... There is a specific method for doing this.

If that's the case, i'd try 1 (soft) front, 2 (med) rear first. Then try leaving the front, and 3 (firm) in the rear just to see how it feels. Maybe even 2 front and 3 rear just for kicks.
