Great, now Tyler hates all of us because we told him the truth

I wonder if reverse psychology would work here. Hmmmm...

Hey Tyler, you really shouldn't buy those OEM wheels.

I have a b5 s4 and it's such a love/hate relationship. It's a perpetual game of whack a mole - fix one problem and 2 arise. SMH

I'll drive up to him in LA next time around and will definitely invite Jawknee to the photoshoot up at ACH!

No other interior bits yet, although I liked 1killercls idea of getting CF replacement trim and get rid of the wood

A euro plate?!

Nice, do you have auto or 6 speed? Any pictures?

I haven't encountered the hate part of the relationship, but the love part sure is in full swing .

As some of you have already read on the interwebz, I took the car on a hard 250 mile drive yesterday with my local car club. Temps reached 95f+ (sometimes 104f) heat, we climbed roughly 5,000FT, turbos were seeing 15psi every corner ... car didn't feel bothered at all. Oil temps were around 225f - 245f, coolant gauge never went over 1/2 way. I was thinking, if the ETH FO were to have unforseen issue(s), yesterday would have been the day.

Nice! Good to see she made it with out an issue. It's sounding more and more like you got yourself the opposite of a lemon... I wonder if it's due to all the maintenance that was done to the car before you bought it, or if it truly is a lucky hit on a solid car.

I'd say the car was treated well for it's 15 years on earth considering it still has the original turbos / clutch.

Very satisfied with my purchase so far!

You know what they say, all jokes have a sense of truth

But really, I do hope your car makes it up safe & sound. Limp mode is dangerous as hell.

I've seen some recent pics from Jin, I'm sure it's fine

id love to get behind the wheel of one. Maybe it's time I go test driving...

Speaking of the new wonderful bowel movements, the new 340i (335i replacement, also .. I'm imagine the same powertrain as the 435i?) is no joke. Insane linear power ...

I got first hand experience how quick they are on yesterday's drive ... my car would creep on it at 15psi, but as we got towards the upper end of the rev range he left me .

Probably because his car is 15 years and 100k miles newer? I'm sure a few ponies have escaped your engine bay over the years.
