    Mine, and probably poo ploughs as well, have the option of automatic or manual sequential gears, both via gear stick and flappy paddle things on the steering wheel. And four changeable modes.

    How cool is that.:devil-flip:

    Yep, mine has that as well as launch control too (which I don't use). Mine doesn't lower 10mm when selecting Sport + mode though; she's already as low as she can go with the XDrive system.

    Few people around here put bits of timber behind the wheel. I think one person has a string on them as like aero chocs:D
    Some driveways are steep.

    :D
    Not very!
    In fact its quite boring pointless & a little bit cack from a real petrol head's point of view, at least that bm of yours is rear wheel drive which earns you 1 brownie point out of a possible 10 :D

    Better than front wheel drive. But you want four wheel drive to be really cool.

    "A real petrol head".

    I assume you mean someone who claims that stick shift is best, they can outbrake ABS and can drive faster with traction control switched off.

    Here, in the real world, I'll stick with my eight speed auto and heated seats.:razz:

    I should have added 'Blackbird riders who say that carb is better than FI' ............. in their minds at least.

    Meanwhile, here, in the real world.....
