Not that it isn't still the individuals fault if he rear ends her...but I like how you've come up with an inventive way of how women can make driving more challenging. Kudos!

Truth be told, I can pretty much twist anything to be a little jab, just to play in your mind a little more, for it is a wonderful place to play.

But I actually agree with you here...a downshift can be useful if driving stick, but it really doesn't scrub off a whole lot of speed, so only useful if you are slightly in excess of the grace zone.

If you are really speeding, throw out the anchor and hope that the cop wasn't doing radar and doesn't have a reading. Or assumes you are really quite sorry and will be a model citizen from now on and doesn't invite you to a little roadside conversation about bad habits acquired and the consequences of such.
My young Padawans, don't you have Anti-Dive/Anti-Squat suspension geometry? Indeed you BMW owners do. The dynamic mass transfer is absorbed and the energy used to keep the vehicle level. You may be heading to the dashboard until you automatic tensioners do their job but your nose is not heading towards the ground. Disclaimer: If your maintenance is up to nick and you keep your ride to BMW specs.

Failing that, kill the ICE and switch to electric to go by in stealth mode. #i8Life

And how does that make you feel? And more importantly, what are you going to do about it?

I'm well! My daughter was in SoCal for 3 weeks and I missed here greatly. She's back now and just started the semester for law school.

Business is GREAT. A 1.5 year project is finally nearing closure and it may be much more profitable than the projections lead us to believe. As you well know, it's usually the other way around!!!

I fully understand the holiday morning confusion!! When I was in school, just figured each day had the same name: HoliDAY. The details didn't matter!!

I'm glad all is well, milady!!

Nope! The front suspension of an e9x does not have anti-dive geometry...thankfully.

Less brake dive does not mean it has positive anti-dive. I bet you a cup of tea at my place that it's neutral at the most.
