yeah at 1 time I saw it. but never really looked at it.

oh, and about the shift, I'll let you do the comparison, like i said before, i really didn't notice THAT much of a deference in M mode.

And here's a not-so-old video. Modest performance. Crazy to think there are n54's that do it 4 seconds less!

Hey Dan,

so what is the right way to do 60 - 130? In this video he starts at 50 WOT. Is that the right way? Thus you are WOT at 60?

That's a good question and I don't really know the answer. I thought it was a flying 60-130. If one were to go WOT at 60, spool and other factors play a part. I figured the idea of 60-130 test is to simply show the fastest possible acceleration. Thus, I started at 50mph with the car in D mode. In fact, I think I was in 6th gear. I then went WOT and let the car select the right gear.

Again, is it right? Dunno. But let's figure it out and do a little fun comparison. I'm down to meet as well but there are challenges to that as seen yesterday. We can always do our own videos and compare the speed difference.

Lastly, it was nice meeting up yesterday. Enjoying the coding and the flash. I think I will want the amber delete. Feel stupid for not doing it at the time. Still want to drive the car more before commenting on the Alpina flash. It's interesting for sure.

Well, normally I am very busy but since I'm on vacation, I've had a little extra time. Besides, I really wanted the flash/code so it only made sense to hang out with Vince a little longer.

Yes, we do need to catch up. Been a long time my friend. I need to come to your store finally!

Doing some research and it appears starting at 50 mph in 3rd gear is what some folks with our platform is doing. lets do that. try to find a good flat road, though we can't verify just not go on a downhill. LOL..

not too sure about FSD, read some good and bad about it. might as well go with Koni adjustable so you can tailor it to the best ride you prefer.

bavauto has them on sale, $127 each shock. pretty good deal to me. trust me, with the dampening adjustable it makes the ride so much better. you can stiffen or soften up if you ever don't like the floaty or bouncy ride.

yea dsbj, i was reading either we have to take the stud out, or the rotor out to do handbrake adjustment. sucks! my handbrake leveler needed to be pulled pretty high so just wanna adjust it.

i got a problem with my car, so i decided to wash to engine bay, i didnt soak it, just rinsed it, and then when i drove it, it started shaking, then a check engine light came on. so to make the explanation short, i changed the spark plugs and checked if coils were wet, they seamed fine, so then it would not shake under acceleration, but still it occasionally shes, or misfires, like the rpms bounce and a shake, then its fine, also just right now the light went off, but it still feels like its in limp mode, it still revs to redline and everything, just it feels hesitant. what could it be? where can i check the codes if any are left stored. Last time i filed up shell premium fuel, so fuel is good. I just dont get it, id rinse my honda engine bay and drove that car hard and never had a problem except when i was out of gas and did a hard corner, then light came on and after a lil went off.
