Miles apparently has all the tools we'll need.

I'd love to see that Merc someday. I built a Tamiya model of a DTM car that was nearly identical back in the 90s. I'm currently unemployed too, though hopefully not much longer so, if you need someone to come over and break stuff to keep it off the road longer, let me know.

I'd LOVE to see my 330 engine on a stand too!
lol

Yes, and I totally imagine you living off your own money.

It has nice Recaro seats, a Brembo BBK, LSD, adjustable dampers, and an engine that pumps out an insane amount of power.


Sort of want...
I'd be happy with the Boss 302 Laguna Seca

I'd easily do so. New M3, oh wait, I mean M4, is heavy, ugly, and slow.

The E90 M3 is a nice car because it has the functionality of a sedan, but also does well in racing applications. The E55/E63, not so much. However, if what you're looking for is a sleeper, I'd probably take an E55/E63, too.

Yea, the GT500 would kill an M3 in just about any situation, I'd say.

I don't know how the quality of the car is, though. When the new Mustangs first came out (06?) my friend's dad bought a new GT. It was a fast car, but it was jerky and the interior felt cheap. I'm sure they have improved since then, though.

That feel when you put the car in 1st when parking and then forget when turning it back on and you release the clutch and stall the shit out of it.

I am talking about the E9x M3, which I quite like. The New F30 M3 is retarded.

If I would take the GT500 over an E9X M3, I would obviously take one over the F30 M3, too lol.

E9x M3 is pretty lame. You said it has done well in racing, but what example has a anything close to a stock M3 done well in racing?

LOL, if you say so...

You haven't delivered anything. Motor oil doesn't count, particularly when it's the wrong kind.

How do you know this?
