Welcome !! Your ride sounds great ! ;)

BMWFatherFigure 10-06-2012 08:07 PM

I take it with your obvious iq and vehicle sympathy you are a Comissioned Officer.

SlippyE34 10-06-2012 08:11 PM

Actually i am a NCO. But what do you mean by my obvious IQ? Can you actually speak to my intelligence based upon a burnout video?

SlippyE34 10-06-2012 08:13 PM

But it makes sense, you go by bmw father figure, thanks dad

BMWFatherFigure 10-06-2012 09:15 PM

Only trying to guide, son, only trying to guide.:thumbup:

SlippyE34 10-06-2012 09:35 PM

Ok a can agree with that sense of humor. We all love cars, therefore we all love burnouts

M540FELLA 10-06-2012 10:54 PM

Yay another Msport owner! Welcome Slippy, now we've got 3. You,me, and Gixxerboy.

Slippy, I have an idea you might actually go for. Do another burnout for us, but this time, have your video cam securely strapped to your bonnet, right behind the emblem such that hopefully we can still see in in the foreground. The tremendous acceleration ought to look spectacular.

It won't be as good if you put your cam in the cabin with you.

Apologies, I'm not a big fan of burnouts, so I'll have to live vicariously through you, if you don't mind, that is. ;)

M540FELLA 10-07-2012 12:19 AM

Oh he's got other vids on his youtube, He's actually pretty innovative with how he mounts his phone. And brave too, there's one where he duct taped it to his rear bumper.

BMWFatherFigure 10-07-2012 12:32 AM

As a Polic Dispatcher and ex Traffic Officer I'm no fan of burnouts either. Out here we impound cars for 1 month for driver conduct like that and THEN you go to court.

Then I'll be expecting to see a hood mounted burnout anytime soon !

SlippyE34 10-07-2012 04:44 AM

Wind noise would be a problem with the cam on the hood, unless i created a cone to go infront of the phone to create a vacuum effect.

Why don't you do two videos, one with the cone and one without? I think the combination of wind noise and engine roar would be interesting to here either way.

Go slippy !!

Lighten up. Who or what is the guy hurting on a deserted road? I suppose I am jailable for my sig pic on another deserted road?

"conduct like that" seriously? Maybe not for me in my BMW but, when I rolled the 525hp 464 Buick, it was hard not to leave trails like that:D

Here, the highest trained, the State Patrol, go to school for like six months. They come out experts in law, high speed driving, marksmanship and have also been indoctrinated to believe that they know what is best for others. That sir is a travesty, a major dis-service to the taxpayers who hire these folks for what turns out to be tantamount to a daily shakedown. It hasn't been about public saftey for decades, it has become about revenue, and it makes me sick.

SlippyE34 10-07-2012 09:37 AM

Post edited pics and another video added.

I don't think father figure was being critical at all frankly.

But anyway, why are you so bothered? The bill of rights and the constitution has been flushed down the toilet for years and all of america just looks the other way. People have become soft. Watch Jesse Ventura's and Ron Paul's videos on youtube.

I think alot of people are afraid to have fun these days, then they develope jealousy and distaste for those who do nothing other than have fun, i am the latter and i always make anything i do worth while.

I don't think father figure is against you having fun at all...

SlippyE34 10-07-2012 11:01 AM

Not speaking of anyone in particular, just saying, alot of people in my life try to say im irresponsible because i have fun

The car is absolutely beautiful, but I see a new clutch, guibo, subframe bushings, rear brakes, and tires in your near future. :thumbup:

BMWFatherFigure 10-07-2012 04:53 PM

Car looks like a stunner. +1 on Radian. If you must have 'fun' like that do it on a Drag Strip. Lets just say SlippyE34 won't be getting keys to any of my rides any time soon.......

robertobaggio20 10-07-2012 08:17 PM

Would you consider smoking your rims ? It would make your car look really wild. Please check these out :

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=650354

Of course the look would be completed by getting smoked front grills as well....wild !! And still considered sane for the E34.

SlippyE34 10-07-2012 08:22 PM

Yeah I have considered plasti dipping them. Just need to find a solid 4 hours of time I can spend prepping them.
