New C63 Coupe can do 0-100 in 3.7 sec. M3 Killer?

Guarantee that thing will get schooled on the track. AMG cars are becoming the equivalent of muscle cars; all straight line power.

Last 2 years he's had numerous Porsches (Caymann, Cayenne, 911 Turbo and GT3RS), Merc C63, Nissan GTR, BMW 7, X6, 335.

Classic was the 7 series he traded it before he even put a tank of fuel in! He also went from Porsche to Nissan GTR and back to Porsche.

He's never had an M3 though...

Nuts when I write it down.

Currently he has Porsche GT3RS, Porsche Cayenne, BMW 335 Convertible.

He has a model of all the cars he's has had over the past 5 years or so - it's bloody insane - works minis, Lancer Evos, 996 GT3RS and 997 GT3RS you name it...

He pays to hire race tracks for a day where all the staff race (guys, girls car nuts and non car nuts) it's pretty bloody cool.

He does think I am insane with all the work and $ I am putting into my car! The stock car you can buy for $40,000 AUD and I've spend another $60,000+ on mods... I will never get my money back (unless I sell in parts and then I still wont) BUT THEN I THINK I'd rather be committed to my car and not drop $20k + every time I trade... PLUS my car is a one of a kind, personal reflection.

That said Porsche are pretty cool in that they have the best resale of any car maker and there parts are actually pretty reasonable. PLUS first service at 30,000ks reliable as can be...

No Sir - Let me help you as you are in the Australian section and are well out of your league.

0-100 refers to km/h when talking around here - I was simply fixxing my mistake by accounting for the extra 2.14 miles which make it the conversion for acceleration from 0-60 mph to 0-100 km/h.

We use the metric system, much like the rest of the world.

Get with the times and context.

No need for solving.
- Named also Chris

In red are the countries of the world NOT using the metric system.

Pisser - I will tell my boss. He will get a kick out of that.

I work for a company that designs and manufactures denim jeans and other garments for MYER, Target etc.

So I'm "in the ragtrade" - we have a great time. Twice a year we do a world trip buying samples in cities like LA, London, Tokyo, Amsterdam.

It is hard work sometimes but we really have a good time. It's a great vibe at our company.

Wherever I can I get to meet with my favorite suppliers, a couple of trips ago I went out to EUROPEAN AUTO SORCE in Santa Clara Los Angeles... It was really great to meet the owner Tom and the crew and see their set-up. They are one of the best suppliers around. In London I do plan to visit CA Automotive (they are a couple of hours out of London I understand) - probably the best tuner/supplier in the UK. I was supposed to hook up with the Vorsteiner sales rep when I was in LA last time but that fell through as he had resigned 2 days before I got to LA.

It needed to be done.

American ignorance and bravado has passed annoying along time ago.
