My project car right now is an 1984 DeTomaso Pantera GTs. Just finishing the cosmetic work but the American V8 they came with is builtproof and the car is much much much cheaper to drive and maintain than an other italian exotic (Lambo, Ferrari, etc) so you can actually enjoy it. Fast and fantastic sounding.

So yes, taken in whole, i do drive the perfect car(s). I have a vehicle for any need that may come up. One car cannot do everything you want and to try is ridiculous.
UH-OH

I caught you in a lie.

This is why what you drive makes a difference. Because you own a 335i.

These quotes below are from "superstock" himself in the E90/E91/E92/E93 forum.

A 335 sedan with wider rear summer tires and an auto (no other mods) was in the mid 13's with no problem.

Of course just jamming on the accelerator is a lot easier than actually shifting. Which is why most drag racers go for automatics of course.

FYI:While 12.9 seems fast, a C5 automatic Corvetter with just a catback can run 12.8 all day. BMW is still not a drag car and never will be.(Hopefully)

I knew you were just another jealous 335i owner.
