Re: ZF Gearbox - foot on brake when stopped?

Xenon and LED headlights even when aligned perfectly dazzle more than brakelights. I’ve heard that this is being investigated ?

Most American shows are "for entertainment" meaning it's all set up and mostly fictional.
So just like Top Gear?

That's exactly what me and a mate want to do to our BCS cat backs but we were told this could mess with back pressure etc.

It seems to me that you guys now no longer have the car that you paid for, or indeed are paying finance payments on.

Re: M240i feels unsettled on overtaking?

I give up - whats "RSFB" ? Rear sub frame bushing During the brief time I owned my 135i coupe I couldn't get over how unsettled the rear felt on anything other than smooth roads. Just felt like the entire rear assembly was not fully attached to the car. Seems to gel with the OPs experience and sgb2...

War and Peace on your driving style aside... squishy standard non-M RSFB will not help.

Re: Anyone know this car? - v1.1

Looking good Arnie, great idea and I'm sure you'll get lots of business!

Have you considered a multi-buy deal? like four full checks for £30 or similar?

Asking selfishly really as I'm going to be looking for a car after xmas and will likely have 3-4 I'm interested in!

Re: (Another) M Performance LSD post and thank you forum!

It is? Fair enough. The description you gave sounded very much like the effect of adding a front LSD to a four wheel drive/front wheel drive car insofar as when you apply power, your line tightens rather than widens(understeer). That's certainly been my experience of adding a front LSD to a car.
