Speaking in acronyms is pretty cool, but what's even cooler is referring to various option packages, features, or colors by their respective manufacturing code. When you see that, you know they're a true enthusiast.

CA is Comfort Access.
PDC is Park Distance Control
MPK (or MPPK) is M-Performance Power Kit
MPE is M-Performance Exhaust.
N55 is the Engine for the 35i vehicles.
EBII is Estoril Blue II Paint.
BMS is Burger MotorSports.
JB4 is a specific Engine tune.
DP is DownPipe.
EWG is Electronic Waste Gate.
IMO is 'In My Opinion'

Those are all the things I've learn in the past 8 months. Feel free to post any others you don't know!

PCD? Performance Center Delivery?

ED (not the one that requires the little EBII pill) is European Delivery



We should all just start spewing every acronym we can come up with. In all seriousness, I find learning all of the little acronyms that go with specific boards a daunting process. Was recently over at FlyerTalk for some Delta questions and it was like they were speaking a different language. When I'm in my BMW safe zone it just makes skimming the boards that much easier.
