My 330 with a suspension modded well beyond ZHP spec still feels so pedestrian and uninspired in comparison.

Hopefully the dealer got somewhere with the diagnosis. Please do let us know what the problem ended up being.

On cold starts below 50 deg. F I'm getting pending P0171 and P0174 lean burn codes. The first thing I did after thouroghly cleaning the MAF was have the intake smoke tested which revealed a cracked...

I would probably go with the 40 aspect ratio tires since the larger overall diameter will serve to correct some of the built-in BMW speedo error. While obviously not an ideal setup, I'd go with the...

You know it'll take at least in the ballpark of $500 right off the bat for new tires, brake pads, and whatever it costs to fix the cooling system.

If the car has been maintained well and you're on a level road at 60-80mph, mid to high-20s mpg can be expected. But anyway, if you're concerned about having to replace the valve cover gasket and...

You might be able to keep up pretty well with a non-sport 2.81 diff automatic from a dig up to 60mph, but on the highway any variety of 540 will drop a 330 like a rock. Long gearing and a torque...
