I'm not, my current ride already has a LSD. But I'm hoping the 1/3 will get one too, even if tremendously overpriced via the Performance Parts catalog.

If so, they might actually be cheaper than the brochure lists as there shouldn't be a currency exchange involved.

Why stupid? I think it's brilliant.

A *performance* steering wheel should have Alcantara because it's a lot grippier than leather, absorbs sweat, adheres better to gloves etc. in other words, way better on track.

I guess the new performance catalog poseur steering wheel could have silky tri-color stitched leather...

We can assume that the Black-Lines will be different than these, as BMW refers to these lights as White-Lines in the F10 5-series accessories catalog:

Any one know if the LCI performance diffuser is currently available? And, will it fit the pre-LCI Mtech bumper? Thanks.

It should fit the Mtech bumper, but so far it hasn't shown up on the OEM parts sites (Tischer, etc.).

That's really tacky. I guess if there are more gadgets that have nothing to do with driving, people will eventually forget about the hpfp issue and just use the gadgets even if the cars don't drive properly.
