Interesting. iDrive may have to go next. I am assuming you know your way around the track ;-)

BTW, is that also your Bentley?

That is AWESOME! What about airbag errors though? Do they still work? Someone asked earlier I don't think I saw a response.

Would you please weigh the stock seats?

the airbag sensor is on the idrive, and must be taken care of.. i am not sure on how much the stock seats weigh, i would guess around 70 pounds from lifting them, and i lift weights.. once i pick up everything i will weigh them...

Would you be able to tell me more about the airbag sensor being on the idrive? I really don't understand, I thought the sensors were on the seats.

So do your airbags work?

Those aren't speakers on the rear seat shelf.
They are the fuel relay sensor and the fuel pump (so 2 speaker-looking things total back there). Same as in previous cars.

I'm sure its faster, but what impact has it had on the balance of the car - understreer / oversteer. I'm assuming weight has shifted from 50-50 to 60-40?

welll dick/jerk

frenchboy asked me if i know my way around the track, and i have ran our track here many times, as well as racing shifter "Karts" since i was 9. so my response was to french boy that ive been at a track since i was young... i really dont give a fuk if you rae at the national level...

some people really have the nerve to come on others threads and talk about how awesome they are ("i race at the national level") and try to take a crap on others..

bro get a life, and i am sorry for spelling wrong, but seriously stfu man
