Either way, I said I wanted a nice daily driver, so I don't plan on launching this this hard to begin with. I usually do all my "runs" on a "closed course"........ The A4....now THAT'S built to launch. lol

Not one person's tranny has been shredded yet. Also Shiv's car is one of the highest powered 335's out there and is perfectly fine.

E92 M3's number is the same as expected. mid 4.0's 0-60 and high 12.0's 1/4mile. 235's on the rear for 135i has got be a mis-print since a lowly 330i with 225hp has 245 at the rear. The proper rear tire size of a PROcede 135i, should be around 285.

With the amount of money that people on here are talking about spending on engine mods, custom tunes, aftermarket I/C's, TBE's and yet you are all just going to give up on the tire issue? your body shop is your friend, find a good one that knows what they are doing and they can do fender extensions that you would swear were the way the car was made

Man. What do you guys plan on doing for maintenance and warranty service? All your inspections come due really fast the first 20k miles.

Nor any BMW's to be quite honest. Cept maybe the M6 (). These cars are built for speed, but not in straight line. The straight line speed just happens to be a by product of the way BMW designs their cars. :roundel:
