Yes....another BMW breakthru...using the best KKK turbos of the time (does that mean the turbos are racist? [:p])

LOL on the KKK turbos

The silver arrows C9 and C11 also used KKK turbos on the M117 and M119 engines, as did many others. But non german brands have been sporting the same, so it's not a german hate thing!

I feel so miserable without you; its almost like having you here.

RE: Look! new BMW 7series update edition

Looking at the rear of the car I fail to see how much the rear has changed. Looks the same to me [:(!]

And, regarding the face they have gone from edgy to just plain blah. Stay the course, Bangle! Personally I think the real butchery happened on the inside when they decided to do away with the driver-oriented dash and controls (you know how the center dash was angled toward the driver) and went with the double-bubble i-drive screen. I have driven one of these new 7s and I am sorry but fiddling with the i-drive is more distracting than anything else not to mention frustrating. Whatever happened to simplicity?

Tubs, it's "ergonomics", in case you still cared. What they really needed to fix was the rear, they just goofed up the front end a bit.

There is not one picture of it. KKKs have been used on race and production

cars and do not refer to a specific make or model of cars.

Here, pics...



The KKK for the 2002 that merouby referenced earlier

Since you referenced the Zonda in one of your post, you might be interested to know that the C9/C11 (pictured above) have a direct lineage relationship with the Zonda.

Yes, the Pagani is the C12, and the current one is the C12S 7.3. My friend saw one recently.
