my friend just ditched his 07 woflsberg, that money pit f*&k'd him over more times than i can even count. P.O. had it pushing 15 lbs of boost. he replaced the headers about two months before he just gave up on it all together. although he still claims it was fun as hell to drive when it was in running form (which was rare)

i drove a V8 97 f150 from age 16-21, then switched to my e36......i have NOTHING to complain about in regards to fuel consumption

although i did drive my old truck the other day and i miss it sooo much, it felt like it was just chompin at the bit for me to spin the rears. but alas, not in the work parking lot

im not sure, the website has a link saying "open box & clearence" but the link only leads to a guarantee type page which says to check your speaker model page to see if they have any open box/clearence items.....but when i checked the product pages i didnt see anything pertaining to open box or clearence....gave them a call, left a message, sent an email.

i'll keep ya posted

Sama will you sell just the halos? I already have depos and don't see any reason to get another set of lights.

Well actually how much if you include the HIDs? I could use them on my "parts car"

what? is that what the m20 has?
Vano's equipped M50 uses a hot film maf sensor (as opposed to the non-vano's cars with 'hot wire' mafs), and the m20 uses a vane style afm. Not a real big disadvantage but the maf's are more precise (and more free flowing).

I know there is people who will argue that point, but from my experience thats what I have realized.
