Kyle's E82 135i DCT
Gentlemen!

Without further ado - The ride thread I promised in my introduction thread.

Mini Backstory:

I had been looking for a replacement for my Revo Stage 2 2005 Audi A4 B7 2.0 TFSI 6MT for some time. With the car approaching 15 years old and with 200k km on the clock; I needed something newer, a bit more modern and quicker. I initially started to look close to home, in the VAG realm. After all, the Audi had treated me really well - giving me stellar service through thick and thin.

I am actually really impressed with the car overall and will be sad to see it go in the next few months. So many adventures and travels in the old girl...

Finding something suitable in the VAG realm proved difficult. Prices are high and while I think the cars are great, I just cannot justify spending such a large portion of my income on a car (irrespective of brand). I wanted something sporty and unique but without needing to sell my soul.
That is why when this BMW came into the picture I was positively sold! The value proposition was just too good to pass up – so much car for the money. Buying it from an enthusiast friend also made me feel more at ease about buying a used BMW (Justified or not).

The Car (which I hope will treat me as well as the Audi did)

Good question...

This is the hybrid (Stage 1) kit, so I reckon about 300 kW once all the supporting mods have been sorted out.

This will be a learning experience for me for sure, so don't quote me on that Fencelook

Sounds about right Meth injection and LPFP upgrade make a big difference.

Lovely car bud, welcome to the forum.. The 1 series coupe really looks the part, wishing you many happy miles of smiles!

Would love to see some pics of 'the old girl', I have a huge appreciation for Audi's, especially the B5, B6 and B7's.. My first car was a B6 TDI, loved the car to bits and ended up selling it to a mate (with well over 300k), so I get to see it from time to time.

@Spanky, there is only one Teutonic Three (BMW, Audi and Mercedes).. Ranked in order of my preference, haha.

Looking forward to the pics, my favourite B7 model aside from the RS4 is the DTM edition Blowheart Considered buying one, but then the 330i came first and ruined it for the other brands.. Fencelook

With regards to quoting posts, see the image below.. You just need to press that 'light bulb' and then 'quote post' under the reply box, before you type a response.

Thanks for the tip! I feel like a proper chop now - just hitting the reply on the post I wanted to quote Rofl


Good taste! I'd still love a (preferably Supercharged) B7 RS4 in my garage one day...

Thanks, brother! The spec created tension in certain areas of my trousers when I first read it.

Jokes aside, the car feels like a million bucks with all these options. Fortunately it didn't cost near that Cartel

Thanks, boet! Perhaps the RoK fever will subside and you'll rejoin the world of the impractical? Fencelook
