lol, you got more than you paid for!

a little off topic, but i told a guy i work with (owns an RSX, and said his car could hang with mine) that it wouldn't even be a competition, because i have more pistons in one brake caliper, than he had in his engine.

Neither does mine, but in Europe it states we're actually driving an M3: see picture below.

My Swedish version actually don't say V8 and don't say M3 in that section. So I guess the translator did know something about the car... ;-) Where you European English version says M3 mine says BMW 1-serie M Coup.

I had to open the manual to check again to be sure... ;-)

The 1M has single piston calipers.
