    Ownership Verified: Away with the GTI, in with the red and black replacements!

    So, a little update: The original rims are now used for the winter tires and I wanted 19" wheel for summer. The 2 series is a bit restricted in terms of wheels but I found a few options. Unfortunately I wasn't too fond of the too dark z-performance 01 and the VMR 710s had a problem with...

    Ownership Verified: BMW M235i - A BRZ/GT86 for fat/old people.

    Well, I obviously approve. I would recommend the performance exhaust. Maybe also bigger wheels, lower it and throw spacers on it ;-) guess I should update my thread with the little things I changed...

    Ringmeet MMXV August 7th-9th 2015: Planning thread

    Dunno if I've been in here before... But again: Won't be able to do Ringmeet this year. Seems I'm very bad at picking dates for my summer holiday. Gonna be in Kenia with the GF for 2 weeks around that date.

    Haha, now that is hillarious. I think the other thread was more than a year old, so that was before my move back home...

    I really like your car! Your Buddy has A? Plates and you have M?, you can't be far from Eggenfelden or where I work, Garching a.d. Alz. But then I think we have talked about that in some other thread...

    Ownership Verified: BMW 220 M Sport w/M135 exhaust, CF parts

    I think I know that guy from 2ertalk.de ;-) Too low, IMHO, but then I have a bad back ;-) But back on topic: Congrats and 2 Series FTW!!! Those Carbon bits seem really well made. Great contrast with the white car. On my black one, the effect would be lost, I reckon.

    Thx, guys! The more I look at it, the more I just wanna leave it be. Now my main Problem is: What to do with Winter Tires. I run it all year round, and in Germany you need Winter Tires. I was thinking of using the 18" Standard Rims as wheels for Winter Tires and get some 19" M Performance for...

    Thx guys. As I said earlier, I wanted to do a little Vid, especially with sound from the exhaust. Today I had some time, so here we go: In the third cut you can here wheh the second valve opens, thats when I go into sport mode. Rest is in Sport or Sport+. The scenery is in there so that it...

    Well, it turns out the thing can be practical as well. I know, its no Superb or Eclass station wagon, but still: Also, you can see at the very bottom, I modded it a bit. MPerformance Diffusor (matte black for now. Thoughts? Paint it?) and MPerformance Exhaust. It now sounds how I think it...

    I just rewatched that ep with my GF! I'm in no way super experienced on anything other than a road bicycle, but I'd take :clarkson: any day ;-) //edit: I got that wrong, but then he fell over in both things a lot. I was thinking about the Vietnam show... I see. Over here everything can be...

    I didn't get the radar cruise control and collison warning and lane assist and stuff, but the Connected Drive thing is great. The real time traffic has already helped me out a couple of times. But off course it works best in an area where a lot of current BMWs are (all BMWs made in the last 3...

    I second that. I really liked the DSG in the GTI and thought it was a fast implementation. At least compared to the 7 speed DSG in my buddys A5 3.0 TDI. But going back and forth with the ZF8 Speed, The BMWs Autobox is way faster and weirdly it also seems more direct. Its that or the 126 horses...

    I think its actually faster, at least in terms of acceleration. 0-100 kph 4.8sec instead of 5.0. Dunno about the 0-200 kph, though. Supposedly its 17.xx sec. Thx, but thats all GoPro Studio ;-) Anyway, I just finished cleaning and waxing it, so I took some more pics. I still quite like...
