What's up, Doba. BTW, the 19"s look sick.

I put a 3.64 on my E36 M3 (stock is 3.23). It was worth a few tenths and a couple MPH in a 1/4 mile. Then I blew the engine and put in a Euro M3 motor. Now shorter gearing really helps take advantage of 7600 RPM redline.

We should do some side-by-sides to compare straight-line speed of MT vs. DCT . . .
