lol, don't steal my words

ya I mean we can go back a forth with curb weight/tq/hp/drivermod all day

It's really a lost cause... A couple things that are definitely FACT are that the s2k is way more reliable, holds it's value WAY better, and is WAY more fun to drive than a 328/330 (I've owned both 325i and a 330ci e46 MT)


Oh and ya it's way more ghey

My Ride: A car
Lol...why are people dragging stock s2ks?

If you want to drag an s2k get a big ass turbo or sell it for a pony car.

If you want to unlock s2k potential take it to a track. Your 330 or 328 can stay at home.

The e46 is also more comfortable, quiet, and it doesn't attract men :p
lolwut? There's no way this is physically possible unless you have a massive turbo set up and are pushing 300whp.

That's the point and what makes it fun. All hell breaks loose after 6k rpm.

Not that there is much power to be had in the 328, but I've done a lot to make it faster.
Your buddy sucks at driving and especially sucks at understanding how to get the most out of that little car. The S2k is terrible out of a dig but off a roll, it'll kill a 328i.

If you aren't used to driving sk2s and absolutely slamming gears like you're supposed to in these.. There is a lot lost in driver error...
This. It's +50hp and -400lbs.

Doesn't matter from a roll, plus less weight to move.

Lol okay "mr. Know it all", you tell him that, because I've never seen him drive the thing any other way. Keyboard warrior all you want but saying things like "I don't think" and quoting a data sheet isn't going to make any difference.

If you want more reference, rolling start from around 30-100mph. As you all have pointed out, it's an interesting comparison, that's why we wanted to test it. I honestly thought he would leave me, but both cars were very close!

I get the feeling you are like.... 16 or 17.... I don't know what it is, either your inexperience with cars, or the fact you think your 328i is fast, your age is showing pretty hard.

Don't get me wrong, I know my s2k isn't fast in a straight line, if I wanted that I'd spend less than I did on my car and get a C5 Z06... But your 328i isn't beating an s2k. Sorry, it's just not.

Edit: good work on maintaining your e46, I'll give you that... But to further my point, it took you "A couple days" to do a clutch job? Even with a lift? Even with multiple friends helping?

It's amusing to see you back pedal into sarcasm after realizing you were very wrong.

e46 Fantastic.

I don't post my age online, but if you look closely I'm in a wheelchair in that photo from a sport bike accident and lost the ability to walk this year.

So congrats, I shared a story of my past, and you showed how much of a dick you are.

And your still wrong on all accounts

Oh because I made fun of you for having lost your ability to walk, right? All I did was call your bullsh*t on beating an s2k "multiple times"... Which is weird because you can't use your legs and all...

FYI, if you're looking to pull the sympathy card, E46 GOT is the wrong place.

My Ride: bmw330i 2003
Navigation screen stop working

I have a 2005 BMW 530i- My navigation screen stop working. As well my radio and cd. Also noticed that I don't hear the beep for not wearing the seat belt. I already checked the fuses and are good.

Javi, have you tried using your phone and Waze to navigate instead?
