Many people here have been trying hard to make clear that the stereotype of the street and or red light racing M3 driver isn't true (no more). We almost were to believe we succeeded in doing so and now somebody comes along who's proudly telling about his victory #1.

Hopefully this thread comes to an end soon.

I put it in the Politics/Religion section because those are endless argument sections, and you can say the same thing about this topic. It is like debating abortion for instance. You have people on both sides of the coin who will never convince the other that he/she is wrong but tries anyways, and you have people who don't care going in and still don't care after hearing everyone else. End Rant.

I briefly played with the MDM mode going onto highways (2nd gear rolling on the throttle while making the hard turn to get on the on-ramp), and I found that it will let you get some good oversteer before kicking in. That said, when it kicks it, it is pretty obstructive. I like it for that because it saves me, but I can see where it would definitely hurt a good driver on the track.

Here are more that fit that mold:

6MT vs. M-DCT
Sedan vs. Coupe
AW vs. JB
etc.

As you can see, debatable topic != religion/politics, even though probably a lot of folks are tired of those debates. But surely there will be debates on a forum, and they are usually not going to sway anyone, but that doesn't mean they are OT.

What about religion, south? Are you trying to say that politics is better?

I was trying to say that color choice is not a matter of religion.
