All the kids at my school with civics all street race and brag about how they beat a [insert car name here] the other night.
Funny thing is is that over half of them have autos.
I wanna teach them a lesson or two with the 328i but sadly they race at like 3 in the morning -.-

And I'm sure none of them have turbos installed, so they're bragging about 140hp of fury or less... That is less horsepower than is required solely to spin the supercharger on the new GT500.

I love this guy bahahahahah who needs a turbo when you can turn an old snowboard upside down and use 2x6's to make a "spoiler" not even going to call it a rear diffuser spray paint it black and attach it to said notorious ricer mobile

Nice!

Do you have more pictures of your car in different light settings? I'm trying to decide on a color for my E36 and Mauritius is one of my top choices. It's just hard to chose from simply seeing pics online.

No offense to Chip, but the paint on his car is far from new-looking. I've seen it in person, anyway.
