Chips can only do so much on naturally aspirated cars. From the stock s500 experience I have (20hp at the crank improvement isn't really that much), I doubt that it's actually fast off the line, despite how it looks. They're dogs under 20mph.

If you had some low pro, wide 18s or bigger with performance rubber, then I'd be impressed. Sorry man.
The spec sheet reads VERY nicely tho. Was the transission programmed more agressively too?
skinny 16 inch wheels? What are you talking about? I have the fattest tires of all time and I burn and churn them like fire wood. What makes you think I can't burn rubber on a LIGHT alloy 18'' rim with rubber band tires pushing massive torque. haha.

Like I said buddy boy...give me the wheels. I'll show you a smoke show any day. I had 20'' chrome rims on my 7er when I first got it. 265/30/20 Toyo Proxes. I burned them up so bad, the wire from inside of the wheel started to show. Blew out on me over in Virginia Beach on First Colonial, I pulled into the WAWA on the corner.

Toyo proxes are garbage. My 328i could light em up. Talk to me about burnouts when you get some sticky tires.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not discrediting your car. I'm just saying lighting up tires doesn't really mean jack to me when they're not super sticky rubber.

i clock in at 10:30. 12:15 is when I shall smoke my co-worker and take his mortgage money home so I can buy my M6 wheels for sure now and go to JB's Gallery of Girls. get off at 5 n the evening.
Thats a good day.
See a bad day would be...
I oversleep, show up for work late as usual. 12:15 rolls around, I lose the race. Now i'm dead for sure. I clean out my cubical and say so long to work for 1 month!!! I start my 7er and drive home on E. Get home and get murdered by a crazed woman. Now, we're behind in bills. The wife is coming home everyday pissed and I have to listen to her talk trash.

OR.
Call off the race and spare us both a hard life.


NAHHHHHH!! lol.
race on!

For anyone that wanted to know...here is my wife (the dark angel)lol. There is the Honda she is so much into. Aftermarket headlights, aftermarket tails, I believe they are 17 inch mugen wheels. She has air bags on it (notice it is stupidly sitting low in the front and very high in the back). It is an engine driven compressor, 2.5 gallon tank custom in the trunk. Exhaust...and a custom vtec v6 turbocharged "crap" engine IMO and plenty other modifications. She is in the Military and is currently an E5 Sgt. in the army.

Say hello and goodbye everybody! You won't see her again unless you see her on the road.

Now i'm going to bed, because my head is starting to hurt.

Driving around in the hooptie Rav4 today, luckily it passed inspection. Don't want any nasty road treatment materials getting stuck to the M.

I need to sell this RAV though, been looking at E46s possibly or even e90's as the prices have come down a lot. Though she still likes small SUVs.
