      Anyone seen this yet?

      That's the main reason that after 25 years and 8 cars, I don't drive BMWs any more.

      Two of my cars were Three Series (including an E90 M3 sedan) and the other six were Five Series (one E34, three E39s including an M5, and two F10s). The last F10 was an M5 with the dual-clutch transmission. All the rest (including the 2011 550i) were manuals. Once I got over the initial "oh wow" factor of the DCT, it was just a fast automatic. Even when sitting behind almost 600 HP, it just wasn't fun. A Miata replaced the M5 in the garage. Half the weight, a quarter of the power, manual transmission, and WAY more fun.
      Current 1: 2018 Golf R, 6MT
      Current 2: 2017 Mazda Miata RF, Grand Touring, 6MT
      Previous: MkVII GTI, eight BMWs, two MkIV GTIs (both with VR6), a Mercedes, a Peugeot, a Toyota, and an Oldsmobile, all but one with manual transmissions

      Don't have the Volvo wagon anymore? You have so many build/restoration threads that it's hard to keep up

      No, I sold the Volvo because it was the most expensive car to maintain/difficult to work on of any car I've ever owned. I do miss it though because it looked amazing and was a great car when 100%.

      Sounds like me with my S6 Avant
      Not sure what I'd replace it with when it finally does give up the ghost. Always had dreams of the Golf R wagon coming here, but that 100% is never going to happen.

      Would make a pretty rad addition next to my 944, I think.

      2015 BMW M235i
      07-19-2019 08:27 AM #7300
      Been about 15 months since I sold both my 8th gen Civic Si sedan and 2000 Camaro SS. I've always loved BMW's but have never owned one. An e46 M3 was always a bucket list car for me. I have a few friends with e9x's and tried to find a 335/6spd/sport package. After looking around I couldn't find one with the colors and options I wanted. On a whim, I decided to take an M235i for a test drive and I fell in love. I know plenty of people bash the Fxx generation BMW's but I absolutely love how the car looks and it's a super comfortable and liveable daily driver. It's also my first automatic car in 13 years. I was so sick of driving the f-body in Cambridge/Boston traffic. The ZF really is pretty incredible, but I do occasionally have regrets on not getting a manual.



      I grabbed a few things on facebook marketplace and I think I'm pretty much done with it at this point. The car is plenty quick already and I do mostly city driving. I don't see the need to add any more power at this point. I ended up installing
      • Dinan exhaust
      • Dinan springs w/ their bump stops
      • 18x8.5 square VMR V703's
      • M-Performance front lip
      • Black kidney grills


      I do have a box around here somewhere with some VRSF charge pipes I picked up as preventative maintenance that I still need to install.
