I know right haha. Even the sound of a German v8 is different and sounds better in my opinion!

I have a 2000 e38 (740il sport) amazing car I love the sound how I handles, cruises around the city. Also for a heavy car I get decent MPG. Any work done to your car motor wise?

Not really I had the cats taken off a couple days ago as I'm gettin like 20 mpg now even in the city and highway is like 25. It added a good bit of power once I get over forty I can feel its gotten faster. Other than that nothin yet. I needs get my oil leak fixed and a new speed sensor. Then I'm gonna get a cold air intake and a couple other things. You got anything done to yours motor wise?

I have a cold intake. Cats gutted and I had one of my car nut friends mess with the fuel mapping. Turned up the pis on the fuel pump for a little more power. Other then that nothing. Been looking at pro chargers for it.

Nice nice, I can't wait to start pourin money into mine! I really wanna get a track suspension too. Idk if its illegal but I highly doubt it is. But my year car you can't put a chip or programmer in it from what I've heard cause the computer is set to block them. So I want to figure out is someone would be able to reprogram my computer so my car will let me use one!
