Hello

Hey guys,

I'm currently driving a RX-8 and a Ducati 848. I've decided to sell both and purchase a new ride. So far I have test drove the Audi TT, Audi TTs, A5, S5 and the 135i both in auto and manual. I have a scheduled test drive on a BMW M3 and TTrs later this week.

I have to say that so far the 135i is at the top of the list. I do have to say that I was much more comfortable with the manual 135 then the DCT. For some reason with the DCT I was constantly changing gears and did not have a good feel of when to shift. Although, I did find the throw pretty long on the manual, but I'm guessing that can be fixed with a short shift kit. The engine is just so smooth.

Believe it or not I actually prefer the looks of the 135i over the M3. Anyway just wanted to introduce myself and say "hi". I have already learned much from this site.

Here is a quick pic of my rides. Although not for much longer.

Welcome to 1Addicts. Even IF you don't own a car yet.

Sounds like you are a manual man. Yes, you can install a SSK (short shift kit). These cars are even more fun with a tune.

I keep telling my wife that, but she won't hear it. After my last accident, I committed to getting rid of it. I will miss the track days with her that is for sure.

Webb - Nice rides man!!
