Made the jump to Audi...

It was time to replace the 328i, and I needed 4 doors with more horsepower. Natural choice was the S4. At least the e46 will stay in the family, my younger brother bought it. When BMW builds a...

Practice your shifts...

The BMW engine is so smooth it loves to be revved. I downshift all the time down to 3rd gear on the freeway when I want a burst of acceleration. That's where the German engineering really shines. ...

It really floors me when people tell me that my Boxster is not really a Porsche or it's the poor man's Porsche. I spent $65K on a highly optioned Boxster S and could have easily gone higher for the...

The shaking didn't become noticeable until I got new slightly wider tires. This, of course amplified the problem which had previously gone undetected. And, yes warped rotors and a bent or...

Answer to shaking steering wheel when braking...

The answer is: worn out front control arm bushings. Service tech said that after 60K miles they can wear out. I have 69K miles. They got changed and now everything's good.:thumbup:

Yeah, I was talking about the '04 545i

I originally set a budget of $40-45K, but increasing the limit to $60K+ for the 545i is not out of the question. That means the S4 and the C32 fit in that price span. My problem is that I really...

C32 - no stick

Yeah, I threw the C32 in the mix cause it's just a great performer. My wife drives a clk500 and it does a great job of shifting. But I really do want a 6 speed. I also threw in the G35 cause it's...

2006 model will be first year for E90

So, look for the new model end of '05. It will somewhat resemble the 5 series in the front, but rumors state that the rear will be its own.

Has anyone modded their ZHP?

Like changing either the intake, exhaust, or suspension. Or did BMW put the best of those parts on the ZHP, so changing them won't get you much? Just curious, 'cause I ordered a Mystic Blue ZHP and...
