Hello, New here.
New to this board.
I have a 2003 Z4 for the wife so I figured I would get on for me. So in Feb I bought myself a 2008 Z4M Coupe'. My first ///M car.
I have been trolling here awhile for info on F/I for the S54 but will not commit until the warranty is over.
I drive it every day and it never fails to bring a smile to my face.
Some of the posts here have been rather heated.
Hope to learn much on this board.

Ah yes, sometimes we get carried away
How did you find the board out of curiosity? It is still difficult to find through the mainstream boards.
Very nice pair you have there, beautiful coupe. We will do our best in satisfying your quest for S54 FI information. Funny that you should mention it, I have been working on an S54 FI guide that will be posted next week

I don't remember HOW I found it. It might have been on another BMW board, but don't remember.
When I just had the Zed, I did not go on any of the ///M boards. Too much info for a car I did not have... but when I decided on an ///M, well, I guess you have to expand your mind....
Most of the mods that you all E90ish guys have, I don't have. That's the breaks when you own a car that only has 1815 units made for all of North America.

You are correct on the suspension options but there are not as many as you would think for the Z4M.
But before I do anything to the car, I need three or four more track weekends to really figure out just what needs to be changed. I had a two day track event at VIR two weeks ago. My first time in the car....
I like to take an analytical approach to my modding and not just throw money/parts at a car and hope it does what I want. That way I am not disappointed and my wallet lighter for no reason..
I really liked your dissertation thread on the S54 vs. S65. Great work. I even considered stealing it (for about 2 secs) and add it to my Z4 Maintenance website....

Your DCT upgrade thread is pretty good encore.
