Sign a petition for BMW Performance LSD for 335i model !

Hi,

Since a user on this forum (vgame64) will interview the BMW Performance Accessory Development Manager in a few days (more info) I tought it may be convincing if we can show that there are many people wanting a Limited Slip Differential from BMW Performance. In a previous interview with BMW Performance execs (here), the why-no-LSD answer was "lack of demand"...

Maybe the author can pass along this petition to Eric Riehle and we have a better chance to see a BMW Performance Differential for 335i...

So, if you want to contribute to this by signing the petition, please do so here:

http://www.petitiononline.com/lsd335i/petition.html

Thank you !

You know that wet roads with LSD are actually more dangerous due slides correct?

Rain?

Oh, is that why the car feels so unstable in the rain on the interstate? I always thought it was my tires. Now it seems to make sense. I couldn't figure out why it felt like I was always hydroplaning even though I had brand new tires. It is much worse now since I have a tune - didn't really feel that much loss of traction when I was stock.

same!!! omg i dont know why i feel like i hydroplane all the time when it rains. Ive never had a car do this and i was just thinking it was the RFT tires or something because they are very solid and not very soft.

In my opinion, we need about 400-500 signatures until March 16 (the interview day) in order to (hope to) have an impact. They sold about 300 or so Power Kits in USA until last month, so I would figure that 500 owners/leasers of 335i which are interested in this would be a significant "demand"...

So please forgive me if I bump this thread once a day

Bump.

Keep up the signatures. It might be in vain but it couldn't hurt to try.
