Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

@terrytek Yeah he's had it for 5 months and is trying to ditch it. Somethings probably very broken.

not surprising at that millage. It will likely need a new motor at some point. 80k is the highest i would go on any m car other than the e36 m3.

Here's a pretty good read about the 'Rules of Speeding' by Alex Roy, one of the guys who held the world record for traveling from coast to coast.

 

http://www.thedrive.com/article/1054

totally agree with him. speeding is hard and not fun. But meh I don't like straight line driving anyways. 

But he did forget about mentioning the places in the middle of nowhere where there is nothing for miles and no point of going there except to have fun in a car. But at that point, you aren't speeding for time, are you? Does it even matter?

Too many zip ties to be a daily. I've got two on mine, I think 6 is the limit.

So apparently there's a second One:1 in the USA now. This one claims to be the first customer car after the debut at Monterey Car Week, but another car was also spotted stateside 3 weeks earlier.

4K goodness. IIRC this turbo GT3 Cup was pretty hairy to drive, tail out every other corner and splitting flames everywhere.

so is he probably lying if he says he just doesn't have room to park it?

don't really care much about mileage. i've seen e39 m5s go as long as 300k. i don't even plan to put that many miles on anyway.

 

not surprising at that millage. It will likely need a new motor at some point. 80k is the highest i would go on any m car other than the e36 m3. 

like i said, don't think it's gonna break down soon.

The problem i noticed with motortrend on demand is that even though i got one ep of roadkill early.. I still have to wait for a month for the next one..

And i can't even discuss the newest ep with you guys.. Since you all have to wait for it  -_-

ok i think i already said this, but why do m3s keep their value better than an m5? like a 2003 e46 m3 goes for around 18k here, but an e39 m5 goes for around 10. why
