See Kalim, this is how your mentality should be. You go to the track, drive your car, and then see if anything needs to be upgraded. You don't just keep the car in your garage and preemptively upgrade everything.

Dang, I wonder if my laptop battery is going out. It's burned up almost 30% in 50 minutes :/ It used to last about 4-5 hours on a charge. It was replaced under warranty for being defective. Now it's out of warranty

I wonder how brake bias is and how much of a difference is there..

Maybe you have some hidden task running more lately that's eating up battery life?

Also, why are you so epicly 1950's? Opening a door for a girl, midwestern accent, vanilla malts?

Ask Kalim, he's read though the stability control educational manual. I've only browsed it a bit. Probably something relating to the electronic brakeforce distribution between the front and rear that would maintain bias.

Actually Kalim, I am doubting that my fan would work on the beater. I mean if you get some free time I can bring it over and we can look, but I'm not seeing it fitting

It might not be stamped on it if it's not a Genuine BMW part. Any chance you kept the e-mail from wherever it was ordered? I think it was amazon.
