Congratulations and Welcome!

I would welcome reading a review comparing your previous E46 vs your E92.

Kind regards,

Chris

Chris, totally different cars, my E46 had coilovers so the difference in the ride is very noticeable. The E92 feels like a much heavier car, reminds me of my ol' 85 M635csi... Much more comfortable than the E46 but somehow doesn't feel as quick in the first two gears, I'm getting a feel for it so the jury is still out although I suspect the comfy ride gives you a false feeling of not going so quick when in fact is hauling a.. Another thing is getting used to the higher RPM's in 6 gear when doing 90 mph or more. It does have a nice engine growl since the car came with an aftermarket exhaust. Currently running a Turner Motorsports pulley but I couldn't tell you that I've experience a difference between OEM and this one since this is the first one I drove, pretty sure there is given Turner's reputation... Definitely planning on babying this car since it is not my daily driver...
