A very good bang for the buck. I'm mounting these on my new wheels actually. Seth had a set of these I believe and said they were a bit loud.

Vs says that it's the hpfp. The code was low charge air. Since the fuel is low it's retarding (der der) everything thus why I get into Seth mode (limp mode). I knew I shouldn't of replaced the original. Goddamn. I replaced a perfectly good pump to get the free software update so the injectors wouldn't misfire and now I got a shitty one. Fuck me

Looking on tirerack now, it's nuts that the OEM runflats cost more than Hoosier R comps.

Gary I had the Hankooks on my 335i and thought they were excellent tires, regardless of price. They are very quiet, not loud, never heard that one. They are a tad less stable in turn in response compared to the Conti Contact 2's. which are more rigid in the sidewalls, but also wear much faster than the Hankooks. I would not hesitate buying them again, for track or street, I ran the hell of them at Autobahn no issues, and some big road trips in mountains pushing to limits.

For the money, they are a steal, you blow the rears and replace em for the price of 1 tire of other makes. I put 13K on em and they were wearing great though, besides the inside edge of the rears of course.

I kept 36 front and 34 rear in em around town, 38 all in winter for pot holes, and 40 at the track once warmed up.

6. Always, always, always contact WSTO first for every potential purchase. If they donít have it, they know where to get it.
7. Vasillov is a lying braggart.
8. If you look down your nose at us and the way we act the way Vasil did on 2/4/11 you are free to leave. No one is forcing you to participate. Donít let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

my biggest complaint with the V12's wasn't grip, it was comfort. with my drop and wheels, it felt like I was permanently driving on a brick paved road

I don't mind rougher riding tires as long as they don't crash terribly over potholes/road imperfections like the RFTs do.

when you guys started modding your cars did you just accept that every $ you put it into it is never going to be recouped and selling the car in the future is going to be more difficult?

i think i just accepted that fact and i'm going to pull the trigger. right now i only have tints lol but i feel like i'm about to go crazy. i started a list of mods i'm thinking about and it's already >$8k.

may the mods begin!

The Hankooks were smoother than the Conti Contacts, felt great on highways and country roads, 100% better than the RFT, OMG those sucked in the city.

In regards to the mods, I think it all depends on what you do, how you do it, and what quality it is. I only added spoilers and aluminum pedals, which helped sell the car in the end.

well any money spent on a car is lost cash. However, you can pull most the mods off, sell those to get 20-50% of your cash back then sell the car for its normal fmv.
