    Nice cars!
  6. Carbon brakes

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Thanks guys. Let me put it this way, I'd spend an extra $10k and stick with metal brakes if I could cut 300lbs out of the car.
  7. Carbon brakes

    F10 M5 Discussion
    CCBs are a funny thing. I agree with VR00M5's assessment. However let me add my 2 cents. They are very cool. The look cool. They literally stay cooler since they resist heat better. They are cool to brag to your friends. They make you feel good just by looking at them. Yes, no brake dust...
  8. Top 10 Best BMWs of All Time

    Home Page Feature News
    Fascinating article. I enjoy reading these things and seeing what people think. I would likely make some different picks. The first thing I'd want to decide is what area of importance are we talking about: are we talking about important for performance, history, marketing, just all of the...
  9. Next M5 with AWD?

    F10 M5 Discussion
    Excellent point regarding Audi Quattro vs xDrive. My comment isn't really meant to be just comparing Quattro to xDrive, rather the whole car. Quattro might be the superior AWD system, I really don't know on that point. Its just that every Audi I've ever driven (aside from the R8 which was just...
  10. Next M5 with AWD?

    F10 M5 Discussion
    HAHA very funny. Yes its been a while for me maybe I need a forum refresher? ;) I used to be of the following mindset for BMW M cars... they MUST * Be Naturally Aspirated * Individual throttle butterflies * RWD * Stick shift * Chassis faster than the motor * 50/50 weight distribution or...
  11. Next M5 with AWD?

    F10 M5 Discussion
    I'll give you guys my opinion and that's all it is- one guy's opinion: AWD on the M5 would be a positive development. I've been a purist on this for a long time. BUT!! These cars have gotten larger and heavier and vastly more powerful. And as I understand it, BMW sees itself not just as...
  12. V10 M6 to the TT V8 M6, owners thoughts?

    F06/F12/F13 BMW M6 Discussion
    FYI on carbon brakes- be sure to avoid silicone based tire dressings like Armor All. If silicone gets into the carbon material, it loses its ability to generate friction. Also carbon brakes are more heat resistant but not as resistant to rock chips or even if you accidentally bang one when...

  18. New 2014 m5 competition

    F10 M5 Discussion
    You need to speak with the service manager about this. Personally, I would not worry too much about motor break in, but I would worry about break in of the tires and break in of the driver :) I would also suggest you follow up your discussion with the service manager in writing- it can be...
  19. Which settings do you use?

    F06/F12/F13 BMW M6 Discussion
    For me: M1= daily driving fun so Steering effort: COMFORT - I agree with your comments and I find anything more just adds unnecessary extra steering weight to already weighty steering. Shocks/springing: SPORT Again I agree with your comments here Engine Dynamics Whatever: SPORT PLUS - same...
  20. M4 vs used M6

    F06/F12/F13 BMW M6 Discussion
    Since you are leasing, ask the dealer or find out from the financial institution what the M6 lease price will be. My guess is the M6 will have less depreciation, from this point than the M3/4 have, and thus likely a lower lease payment. I thought these were trading more like 85k or so. If its...
