BioHaz, don't worry, you guys are welcome here. I'm actually pretty interested to see what you guys have got going on, Ill drop by 2G now and then.

Josh, man, ignore dsmownsdtm. Actually, just put him on your ignore list and you won't even see posts from him. Except for him and Sloww, these guys are cool. I was looking around their forums a bit, they aren't as bad as you think....lol. Give 'em a chance, all the rest of the guys who posted in this thread came with an olive branch in hand buddy.

LunarFX.....Damn...that's nuts. Same with me in the Supra, if I had hit something like that, bye bye FMIC. Actually, this car it'd be a disaster too, it's lowered pretty good. BTW, you don't have to leave, apologize for some of the rough welcomings here...haha.

Oh, and thanks, I posted in the thread about us Bimmer guys on 2G forums, pretty good welcome so far, so thanks for that.

Thanks E36. We are a peaceful lot. No worries, though, we won't trash the place too bad, lol

I do have a question for you though, E36...is that you in the photo? My girlfriend thinks she's hot, lol

Cool. Thanks for dropping by

And no, not me, that's my girlfriend. Tell your girlfriend I agree, she is pretty darn hot. Even better if I posted the rest of her.....which I *won't* be doing....lol. But just for the heck of it, here's a picture of me n her.... (The Bimmer guys have already seen it, this is just for you DSM'ers)

LOL, yeah, she only has to do that 2 hrs/week. At first she didn't want to, but she likes kids and it makes kids happy so she actually got to enjoying it. I'd hate it, but that's just me. The first time I saw her in that I nearly fell over laughing.

And Conehead, I'm not sure what you mean by "illegal" parts. Stolen? Or just not up to emissions and all that. Because technically any modification to the intake system (ie. Turbo) would be illegal. Same with no cat, etc.

My engine bay, a few months ago, a little has changed now but I don't have any up to date pics:


Not much is stock there... and most of it wouldn't be "street legal". And there are definitely people running a lot more then I am, even on Team-2g. I'm a pretty basic setup, just a little shiny.

Mate, not implying that at all. In Aust everything that can be fitted to a motor vehicle MUST have an A.S. (Australian Standards) certification number.

Its a way for the Govt. to regulate what can be added to car etc. The Govt wants to keep modified cars to a certain kw/weight ratio. Its to stop kids from getting a bog Hyundai and turning it into an unsafe 500hp car.

These laws dosnt impead the importation of properly designed performance vehicles.

Heaps of imported crap that dosnt meet A.S. standards is imported from Japan and such places. I will admit that these parts do provide a greater performance boost, but are not certified as Australian Standard. These are the types of mods that police target here.

Its more common for 'ricer' cars to have these mods than say a BMW or other Euopean cars.

It should be noted that police arnt trying to be the 'fun stoppers' but have to draw a line at some stage to keep the fine balance of safety and fun.

Once again, please dont think I was flaming DSM drivers. Each to there own I think

This one guy I met had a DSM puting out around 450hp.. It was crazy cause it was totally stock aside from tints and the exhaust on the outside..

You guys like the VR4 at all?? I've always been more a fan of that.

I don't see how someone was pushing 450 with tint and exhaust. The internals on that engine had to have been done or something. As for the VR-4 question, I had a 3000GT VR-4. It's a fun car to drive, gets crappy mileage, and weaighs way too much. Handling was terrific, pick up was ok, and top speed was absolutely sick. Buying parts for it was like buying parts for a bimmer though. They are very pretty cars though. Sinister, yet sexy at the same time. It's kind of like a snake, in that they are beautiful, but deadly.

Lol no thats all it had on the outside so i'd never have guessed how crazy the engine on it was. Had a huge twin turbo set up. And a ton of other stuff.

Yeah I love the 3000GT. Almost purchased a friends GT GT but got this instead. (That thing ate trans's.. he was on his 3rd..)

I would have loved to have seen a TT setup on an Eclipse. Never have seen that.

That's the reason I got rid of my 3000GT. 94,000 miles it ate the tranny, and I couldn't afford to get a new one at the time.

But he was following me back to the city from a company outing at a lake and I watched him literally run over a full size dog(we think it was a chow mix/mutt) at about 60mph. It looked like a massive vaccuum cleaner from my rear view mirrors! Needless to say, he made out with just a broken grille, corner light, cobwebbed front bumper, and a dead dog. If that was me, I literally wouldn't have been able to make it home, with the FMIC being a dead-on target. BMW owned that puppy, and definitely made out better than I would have in my DSM.

Thanks everyone for the welcome, but I'll leave you guys alone from here on.
Thats kind of a messed up endorsement. But Ill take it.

We aren't harming anyone, and if one of your moderators asks us to please move along we'll be happy to do so. We weren't the ones bashing BMW's, nor have we in any way violated the forum rules(Yes, I read those too). So you don't like cross-platform debates? This isn't a debate anymore. There was trouble to begin with, but it has been squashed, so please don't revive it to soothe your pride, or make yourself feel special. We are just here to learn about your cars and to educate about ours. If that bothers you, I'm sorry for you. You can never know too much.
nah, im not flaming you guys who have been being respectful and great about things, and i totally agree that we all should do the same. sorry, that was a late post and just after i read something that kinda made me like "oh you gotta be kidding" when this kid was bashing our rides. i know DSM is freaking quick and great to mod...got no problems with that...main point is, i was just getting a little irked because i love BMWs to the absolute max...and i dont want anything thats not German or BMW-fitted on my car. I guess you could say that i care about the sanctity of these cars, and when the forum seemed to be flooded by DSM (which, in reality is a platform i just plain dont like at all), i got a bit mad. but now when i realize it, you guys are just gearheads like us and love your rides as much as we do...sorry for a bit of lashing...and also, this is the only time i will ever be really serious, 'festers....lol. normally i would never pour my heart out like this...id much prefer to be random and joking. think of me as 5/8ths vornado
