Sorry it took so long to respond. Didn't know I had any messages.

Boo hiss to Bring A Trailer

Well, it's NOT going up on Bring a Trailer. They rejected my listing, saying a 318ti was not suitable for their audience. Remember that in case you want to sell yours.

The FPR is under the driver seat. We have a new one, but haven't put it in yet.

Don't forget--the car ran fine for 6 years BEFORE the...

My 332ti running with the Mustangs at Gateway

Here's a short video showing my 332ti chasing down a GT500 Mustang (driven by an instructor) at Gateway Motorsports track near St Louis. I was down about 200 horsepower, but the 332 stuck like ...

332ti at Autobahn June 2014

We put a Ward wing and a Motion Dynamics splitter on the 332ti, but running street tires (Potenzas). Didn't do too bad. Passed almost everybody in my ru group.

Thanks, 2101. I know of the M3 solution, but when I inquired about it, I was told that 318s have a different tank than M3s, and we need a different pump (shorter, I think), but nobody knew what...

Fuel starvation at half-tank

I searched the site, and see that the last discussion on this was in 2012, but nothing was resolved.

I get fuel starvation on the track at half a tank of gas, meaning I have to run out...

I'm guessing you don't like my entry onto the banking. That's a little tricky because of the bump--too hot in, and the back end comes around. If you have a 600hp Mustang that leaps off corners, you...

I can barely fit my fingers between the fender lip and the rear tires. Even my 235x17 street tires hit a little. How'd you get those big tires in there?

Remove rear sway bar? Horrors!

I have a 318/332ti with TC Kline double-adjustable suspension. When running against track-prepped E36 M3s, I find I can't get on the power quite as fast as they can at corner out. One suggestion was...
