Christmas gift to my car...

 By: vitalsigns : January 2nd, 2021-10:56
Looking forward to getting these on the vehicle. Install scheduled for Monday.

Ohlins Road & Track DFV coilovers. Should be a very noticeable improvement, and ratchet up the fun factor.


That is some really serious hardware πŸ‘

BMW E90 M3. Had it for many years, but just cannot bear to sell it.

A V8 M3 cannot be replaced with anything

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : January 2nd, 2021-13:14
I am keeping my 14-year old RS4 for the same reason. It rides on KW V3 coilovers.

Very nice. V8s unite! We are of like mind, for sure.

 By: vitalsigns : January 2nd, 2021-14:39
And I have heard many good things about the KW V3 coilovers, also a popular suspension for the E9X M3.

My dynosaur is 6-speed manual

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : January 2nd, 2021-15:22
Is yours a manual or DCT?

Old Picture

A 6-speed endangered species. A wonderful car you have. I have the DCT which pairs very nicely with BMW’s S65 engine.

Nothing wrong with DCT πŸ‘

LOL! DYNOsaur! My first time reading that one! Nice RS4. That's a serious piece of kit!

Beautiful machine. I have a 2006 E55 AMG. It's automatic, not manual (almost all AMGs for USA market are automatics). While it's not a perfect machine; steering ratio is slow (I prefer a faster ratio so less turning the wheel), steering feel is lacking, brake pedal feel is lacking (but very powerful brakes from 8 piston front calipers), suspension is too firm (and for this much firmness, I expect less body roll), and the transmission is a little slow to shift... It overall has a wonderful charm as a very prodigious and thirsty highway cruiser. I'd drive it down to LA more often, but there are just too many fuel stops!

I was hoping someone would catch that... LOL!

It's one way to differentiate the dinosaur from our cars.

The RS4 is definitely a great DYNOsaur!

Excellent! A keeper, and a car from a bygone era, alas...

Bygone era indeed.

 By: vitalsigns : January 2nd, 2021-14:41
I feel like I should be referring to 30 or 50 years ago using that terminology, even if the E9X M3 platform was retired only in 2013. But it is accurate. Very few naturally aspirated high performance cars being made now, the GT3 being one of the few remaining stalwarts.

Ah! My other soon to become a dynosaur...

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : January 2nd, 2021-15:26
Unless Ted makes me trade it in for a Subaru...πŸ˜‚

Ooof. Amazing car. I will have myself a GT3 someday. Is that the 991?

 By: vitalsigns : January 2nd, 2021-15:34

It's a 2018 "991.2" GT3 Touring which only came with a manual.

So nice! Highly collectible, and I’m sure extremely rewarding to drive.

It sure is but the RS4 puts a bigger grin on my face...😁

Really? That surprises me. What about the RS4 compared to the GT3 does that?

 By: vitalsigns : January 2nd, 2021-16:10

Because it's more fluid in every way

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : January 2nd, 2021-16:17
Torque at any RPM, gear selector goes where you point it without hesitation, sounds like a million bucks and the KW does a lot of magic to the car. Just an all-around versatile performer whereas the GT3 requires a lot more concentration for every move you make. Not a bad thing but for street use, the RS4 wins. The GT3 is dialed-in for mostly track use and I quit going there years ago but still do canyon runs. Both great cars in their own different ways but if I had to keep one, it would not be the Porsche.

Makes sense. Overall driving experience certainly trumps specifications.

 By: vitalsigns : January 2nd, 2021-17:24
I have the same feeling comparing newer, faster cars versus older but more engaging slower cars.

Very true but our V8's are no slouch either.

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : January 2nd, 2021-17:53

That’s what I mean. For example, last gen M3 (2013-2019) is less engaging overall than the prior V8 generation, even if less fast.
