    When I first started going to Spain back in the mid-'60s, I had never smoked. I was appalled that in the small villages, people were still cooking over wood fires [like in Colonial Williamsburg]. The old men could not afford "good" [red] tobacco, so they smoked black [aka pipe] tobacco and rolled their own...no lighters or matches, just a rope with a flint striker to get a spark. I have no idea what the lung cancer rates are/were in Spain.

    I sponsor the Cigar Salon at MOTD NOT because I am gung-ho on smoking, but because it offers those who do smoke a "safe haven" [somewhere to kick back, smoke and not be criticized] after the Welcome Dinner and after a long day of driving, so to speak. People who do not smoke do not have to attend, but the people who do attend, are usually smokers or do not mind the secondhand smoke. The number of cigarette smokers who attend usually appalls me, however. That's THEIR choice, not mine. You already know what mine is and, until I quit or die, it will never be cigarettes.

    Life itself is a risk...everyday. We make our own decisions about taking risks...some are calculated but many more are like playing Russian Roulette...games of chance, luck, fate...whatever.

    Secondhand smoke, radon, carbon monoxide, radium contamination, herbicides, etc. High speed driving in a controlled setting like a track versus high speed driving like a lunatic on a public highway. Risky business, at best.
    Take your pick.

    Don't think anyone is-was telling you what to do. I only took issue with your not inhaling comment. You sounded sort of Presidential. :D

    You will NEVER see ME inhale a cigar. Some do, though. In fact, when I visited the Camacho ranch in 2009 with a group of other cigar smokers, the owner, Christian Eiroa, told me it is the ONLY way to really appreciate a cigar. Well, I guess that I shall never "really" appreciate them. I just puff them and exhale.... The cigars I like, I continue to buy. The rest, I give away.

    Be careful...

    "I didn't inhale" can lead to "I never had sex with that woman".

    I'm ok with F56 owners smoking. They all should.

    Ok so after all that BS, the best exhaust for an R53 is a Milltek.

    The best reasonably priced exhaust, yes. The best overall would be something custom with Coastfab, but you have sell organs to get one.

    It's not a party until someone gets hurt, and it's not a thread until it's been hijacked.

    I didn't read the whole thread, but let the record show that I'm hurt.

    Thanks for the tip on Mad Hatter. I suspected something was wrong with my exhaust when the note changed [thanks speed bump] - they found a leak in the Exhaust Flex Pipe. Replaced it and welded a burnt [Purple] 3.5" Angle Double Wall Muffler Tip I previously purchased for $100.
