Stock 6 speed n54 owner needed.

Hey guys, I am looking for something a bit strange.

I would like another owner/driver of a well maintaned factory stock n54 335 6 speed to come and test drive my car.

I dont feel like it performs exactly like it should... and I would really like a second opinion from someone who is familiar with the driving dynamics of the car.

Im in the san fernando valley.

Thanks in advance.

That is a bit odd but unfortunately I have a 328i so I wouldn't be able to compare. im hoping you only do this for your car and not for your wife. Lol jk dude

Yes, please describe what you think is wrong. Is it the suspension or drivetrain in question?

We should be able to help you.

I remember test driving a 6spd N54 and it drove like crap (under powered). Probably software related?

HAHA., I just moved back to socal from the bay area.. should have posted this 3 months ago.

Id rather not say what my thoughts on the car are.. I am looking for an un-guided and un-biased opinion of how the car drives/performs from someone who is familiar with a stock vehicle. Otherwise.. I would just go find a stock car thats for sale and test drive it.

EJB... i wouldn't ask you to change maps or anything... as long as you know what the car "should" feel like... I would love to meet up and get your thoughts. I work in Encino until 6-7 every day this week, and live in Chatsworth.

Ill PM you my number and lets see if we can set something up... Thanks

I live in west covina, I know these cars inside out. If you are in the area, you can test drive mine and see if you feel any difference.

thanks guys

sean, I may contact you.

As I mentioned to NoTempo in an email... the car is going into the body shop tomorrow to get a new hood.

Some pillick decided to try to steal my OEM M3 high kick spoiler... cracked it, and then pile drived my hood out of frustration.

ill get back to you guys when i have the car out of the shop.

BTW... if anyone knows of an OEM hood for an e92 that has no dents... id be interested in purchasing it.

Visit IKonic AG in LA. I see a lot of 6spd 335's when I visit the shop so I'm sure they can help you out.
