330i Sport Package and ramps

Has anyone with a 330i SP used ramps front or rear to raise the car?

How did it work and was there enough clearance for the air dam? I have a floor jack but hate jacking on this car.

Don't be feel bad about not chirpin. You tires are propelling the car forward while the chirpers are just making noise. With the relatively low amount of torque in our cars, it does not take...

Do you know if the 6 spd tranny is 1:1 or overdriven in 6th gear?

If it is an overdrive, I would consider a 3.15 rear end gear as the 3.07 is only a 4.7% increase. 3.07 will help but it...

Just go drive them both and the real meaningful differences will become apparent.
