Not really. And that's not for any reason other than I can't be fagged.

Are you doing OK with it? I admire you for knuckling down and directing your energy into one of the more difficult qualifications.

I can assure you, as you may allready know. With advances in technology over the past few decades its most definetly not getting any easier, but I stick too it. I am however going to start an internship with BMW, that should be a treat

I've never actually done it to any of the DSM's I've owned, but from what a few good buddies of mine it makes a noticable difference. Especially at idle.

Awesome, perhaps you can get them to stop with the reverse-engineering. Thats where technology progress the wrong way. Too many examples to list, but heres one: We don't need an oil dipstick because we have a series of buttons you can push in the car that tell you the oil level in about 10 minutes of sitting there waiting after an oil change.

Then...theres iDrive...

Ok, thats my rant.
