I passed him at 110 while he was going 100 on a curve.


Wait, I mean .

Romeo, you should just pick up all of this guy's oil and you'll have oil for a top off and oil for your next oil change, all for a decent price: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=983928

My Ride: is totaled
i like the apex arc-8 as well
i thought about buying the wheels that are local to me down here
$1000 for set of 4, brand new, never been mounted
anthracite finish
but everyone said my car would need more aggressive mods to pull it off
plus it would cost me $1500+ after tires (even with my two fronts getting the warranty credit)

Anthracite would not be good for your car in its current state.

but i want itttttttttttttttt

oh well
i'm quite happy with my last minute pickup on those style 197's
and saving money since the guy has 4 tires in good condition
although they're the bridgestone RFT
i can live with them for now since they'll save me several hundred dollars
