You missed the point. It does not matter to me how much the new buyer paid for the car, I know the maximum price he could have paid (dealer sticker as shown the day after I traded in) as well as the...

It is white, pristine, about 10kmi and from the San Jose, CA area, in the last 6 weeks. PM the last four digits of VIN. I am curious to know how much you ended up paying since I hard time to get...

Does anyone have a picture of the unit (before being installed)? $350 seems outrageously expensive but if it's full of electronics or firmware then that might be justified.

While going downhill and slowing I also downshift and rarely brake (unless I am racing). That way when I accelerate again I am in the right gear. So I am indeed saving the brakes and perhaps the...

I am still waiting for a GS-F to appear... In the meanwhile, if the GS had the F transmission, even with 300 HP, I think I would appreciate it way more. I tried all GS before I got my F (and actually...

The advantage of having such a big engine with a relatively low red line means it should be, per definition, way more reliable that those smaller engines that scream to 8K RPM or breathe through very...

I solved that exact same problem with JIC FLT TAR (installed 9 mo ago) and I am happy with them. Also in the bay area and roads here are terrible. Good luck.

I don't recall a $20K difference between the F and the M3 but the latter is definitely more expensive, like most German cars, all overpriced. The same could be said about Ferrari, Lambo, etc, all...

You had one rim replaced though? Can you take pictures of the fixed area? Are you happy with color matching, etc? Thx.

C'est etonnant qu'il y ait de telles differences entre SP95 et SP95-10, je ne le crois pas vraiment. En Californie 91 est le max qu'on trouve. Il faudra se mettre a l'anglais gege, sans cela 99% de...
