  1. Guys, it's not even DCT, it's a steptronic trans. True automatic with a torque converter and all. That's stupid. The bespoke engine thing doesn't bother me as much as they proved they can make a great M car without using a bespoke engine in the 1M. The S63 was a great engine in the F10 and will continue to be a great engine in the F90 and we know they left gobs of power on the table when they put it in the F10. The drivetrain seems like a good idea but i'll be interested to hear how it feels. The M5 keeps getting heavier and faster but it was never meant to be a hardcore racer. It's an executive sedan. It was made to have really nice materials, cutting edge technology and a badass engine to impress your country club friends with. I don't think the F90 is a particularly bad looking car, they definitely furthered the design language that started in the F10. If I had $150k to go spend on a daily driver this would be a serious contender. Shut up with your electric car talk you robot loving asshole!
  2. This has got to be the longest introduction thread ever.
  3. That's what I thought.
  4. Wtf is wrong with it?
  5. I've got no issue diy'ing stuff but our hardwoods are 100+ years old so i'd like to not fuck them up. That and my August/September is packed between work and 4 weddings. One guy did get back text me after I sent him pictures. $3 per sq ft to refinish the floor and it's about 500sq/ft.
  6. I'm trying to get our hardwood floors refinished but for whatever fucking reason getting someone to show up and give me quotes is like pulling fucking teeth. It shouldn't be this hard to spend money.
  7. A flex head wrench is the key there.
  8. I made it through another track day without blowing up. I started in novice again and I was quickly moved in to intermediate. The car felt great and I felt like I was in the zone all day. By the end of the day I was consistently in the low 1:30's. I did end up leaving early because the car felt a little light in the front end in my last session. When I got home I found that my FR strut bolt was loose and my strut pulled out about an inch from the knuckle! All in all it was a great day to be at Blackhawk Farms and I look forward to getting there again in September!
  9. The ever elusive V6 135i with a dual scroll turbo!
  10. Yup, that's about it. We use them at work mostly for wheels, steering knucles, wheel covers, etc. They've been able to pull through on some weird stuff though. If the counter person doesn't know what you're talking about then ask to speak with someone in commercial. Worst case scenario I know a few commercial sales managers and strategic account managers with them and I can get you in touch with someone who can help.
  11. This might sound out there but check with Advance Auto if you have one nearby. They work with a network of auto recyclers and might be able to find something for you.
  12. Why do you have rocks in your bathroom?
  13. Not to sidetrack the thread but yes. Honestly they UNDER estimate a lot of this shit. They don't take rust and wear into consideration.
  14. In contrast, r&r engine is about 28 book hours.
