I'm sold... I've always felt the 'M4X is lighter' arguement was hype. I have never heard a 6 cyl swapped member say... 'man I wish I kept that light M4x!'

Hosting a forum like this is not free. is one of the best BMW forums on the web because it is member supported, not vendor supported. The cost to become a Supporter is a nominal $10.00... A YEAR! DO IT! NOW! ALL NEW!
