WOW Huge power. My 335i felt brutal with 'only' 425 ft/lbs due to the power coming in so low down. How do you find it in wet conditions?

While i am a petrol fan a couple of things to consider

Modern High performance petrols often require 98RON+ which negates the petrol vs diesel fuel cost. Infact in my area V power is more than diesel by about 1-2ppl.

My last 3 petrols have always been run on Vpower.

Fuelling up every couple of days is no fun at all and for some reason Vpower pumps seem to run at half speed, so i feel like i waste about 6-8mins of my life every 2 days in a fuel station.

But then i put the key in wake up the engine and all is forgotten
