Me either. Do you use an Ipod? If so (bit of a hassle) but you can set the genre of your songs to be the first letter of the artist then scroll through the genres (which would then be A-Z) to get to the artists starting with that name. I reckon I could maybe write a script to do it if anyone was interested...... I haven't tried it but it makes sense and I know others have. I can't understand why it isn't integrated with voice control so you can't just say "Bohemian Rhapsody" and the car (as it does) would say "Did you mean Bluey Swed Shooez"

yep i have taken on a few or the other way around , for some reason they plenty of cars want to race! I nearly always dont take the bait... but with the r32 i was surprised by the margin of victory as the r32 ain't slow.

one did the "i'm turning right" trick and was smashed, the beauty of the 335i is that you do not need to rev it with the amount of torque avaialble. What was better was that I was in D mode so i would have been in second gear!

If the 335i can stay with a cayman S then r32 has no chance. must be a 4 sec difference 0-100 mph. different league stuff.

But the vert is heavier, but still shouldn't be a problem.

i am not a fan of road racing - especially in built up areas, but sometimes i am an idiot! i can tell you that the 335i is not far of the pace of the RS4 too, unless the driver was clueless

Considering that my remapped 335d was able to keep with my mates new M3 up to about 100, then I am sure you would have no bother pestering an RS4

i agree, with both of you, the r32 is in a diff league, your 335i will do 0-100 in 12 something, r32 will be 15 something!!

quick car! just the way you worded it i thought the r32 beat you and i was bit miffed!

Pete - good to hear the meet went well. I think Viv would probably prefer another thread for the pics... but go on, just post a couple since I guess we probably won't hear from those who are staying over till tomorrow

Gordon, you are right, there was discussion about a seperate thread for the pics. I will leave that to Viv. It was a great afternoon, despite the weather being a bit 'showery', plenty of good pics from certain individuals with very good cameras, no doubt. I will download a couple of 'amateur' pics as soon as I have downloaded them.

Carlos, didnt disappoint!! His parting gesture was laying down 30ft of his daddys car tyre rubber in the carpark!

Pete - if the meeting was 'up here' you would have uninterrupted sunshine all afternoon!!!! (for a change!) Look forward to seeing the pics, no matter how good the quality.

Carlos must be losing it a bit, the quoted figure for tyre rubber length on the 335d is actually 42ft...must be all that oil he lost Did anyone check his dipstick today
