3. The M54 is Drive-By-Wire.
4. Yes. Research.

Truth be told, you won't really gain all that much. Something around 6 whp. Wouldn't waste my time getting dirty unless you seriously know what you're doing or what the end goal for the car is. A non-M will never be fast. I would focus on Suspension upgrades and cosmetic enhancements.
All good advice !

Being a fan of WHP in any amount though, 6 WHP or so is worth getting dirty for; at least in my book. NITROUS !


Good luck.
