The question that made me laugh most was (posted on this forum):

"How do I detune an M3 so my parents will agree to buy me one?"

swamp, you have hurt my feelings.

My comments were actually a joke on me but you plainly didn't get my British humour.

Let me explain.

Why so many modes in Drivelogic?

I said this at the start and later changed my mind after sampling the M-DCT.

Why the Quad pipes not two at either side?

Actually that's one I have always wondered about but never asked anyone.

Why the steering wheel so thick?

I use to think this until I got to drive the E92 and it felt great.

Why make iDrive so difficult to understand and use?

There's a new version on it's way I am missing out by roughly a month, most unhappy about that.

Why does the indicators not work like other cars?

They are odd now aren't they.

Why make so many M models?

More a dig at Audi for not making enough RS models.

Why only N/A engines and why so little torque?

Very topical at the moment, Porsche 997 thread and the possibility that BMW might switch to turbos on future M cars.




Swamp, honest I am not a baddie.

I think they're great. Always hated that snap-out sound of ordinary indicators.


Best regards, south

I have only had a very brief time with the system and found it odd, maybe with more time I will appreciate it more.

P.S.
Any idea on the quad pipes, I personally don't believe that BS quote for the reason.

Yup, I misunderstood. Nice self deprecating humor. Keep it up.

You should try it sometimes and stop taking yourself so seriously.

"Now whose stupid" is just improper use the the queen's language. It should be "Now who is stupid?"
