I hope all you flat six boosted guys are doing well. I miss having my 930 for sure.

In the mean time, I bought a 2011 550i with sport package. Yep, a twin turbo V8 with 450 ft lbs of torque and 400 hp. The cool thing is that it has 450 ft lbs at 1750 rpm and its attached to an 8sp sport auto tranny. And yes, its a heavy car at 4030 lbs, but it has balls. I need to lower it to get some handling and I need to find some BIG sway bars to tame the body roll. But get this - $3000 gets you a tune that adds over 100 hp and 100 ft lbs of torque, complete with mapping to the tranny.

Anyway, I hope y'all are doing well.

Oh ya - still having discussions on what oils to use, I see....
