Shockingly, nobody has released a tune or piggyback for the BMW 2.0L Turbo diesel I-4 yet. Thinking about possibly leasing one since NYC just put up like 200 speed cameras and the 750 HATES doing 30mph (lost like 3 mpg in the past 3 days).

Not sure yet. I'm pushing a Bill of Rights violation to try to get out of a ticket (6th Amendment. How can I confront my accuser if my accuser is a camera?), so if that works, screw it, I don't gotta do 30. If it doesn't then I gotta do something.

I don't have immediate plans either. Can't believe a freaking 4 cylinder 3 series gets to $63,000, and thats not even loaded with everything. BMW needs to start including more stuff as standard and not charging extra. $550 for metallic paint, $1350 for leather seats, $950 for leather dashboard, $250 for an iPhone hookup, $450 for an alarm. Come on! I can get this stuff standard elsewhere for half the price!

The 335 goes even higher. Speced out an M Sport with AWD and got it to $72k! Bet an M3 would top $90,000. Its all the stupid options. Everything costs extra. And of course, I'm spoiled, so I want almost everything. :|

crazy.

Seeing Chrysler step into the luxo-super sedan market (Charger HellCat) is gonna put the Germans on notice with their pricing.

I already asked SRT about the Charger Hellcat. They blew the biggest chance they had. Its gonna be rear drive only. That car needs AWD in the worst possible way. Instead, 707hp up in a cloud of smoke.

if they get the active handling/traction stuff down, offer some form of magnetic ride, it might be pretty sweet.

Jury is out on how the Hellcats will hold up in the real world, but it will make for some good comparos :)

Nah, read the Motor Trend review of the Chally Hellcat. 1st gear is unusable, which kills the performance. They were in the high 11's with it at 125mph starting in second (with the ZF 8 speed). The motor needs a proper AWD system to get the power down. Otherwise, its just another GT500 or Supra MKIV. Dyno Queens.
