Friend I am FAR from flaming you. That has become my top "to purchase" list.

I think it's the performance bargain of the decade, and will undoubtedly become a collector item.

Couldnt agree more. My bimmer is just my DD. My passion is all cars, and started with mustangs as I owned my first one at 15. I had a Competition Orange SVT Focus that I was having fun with as a DD before this 325, but wouldnt hesitate to sell all my toys for another Comp Orange SVT

They fit good. I just cut the mid pipe to accommodate for the long tube part and then used clamps that came with it.

And now, for something completely different........

My wife is a menace to automobiles.

I had to take her to a doctors appointment this morning,
and when we got back she took the van to work the rest of the day. 5 minutes
later she called from the post office. The van was running rough, missing
real bad (it was fine 10 minutes before when i drove it). I took my truck (which was working fine, too) and dropped it off for her to use while I
struggled to get the van home to work on it. I was no sooner back home than she
called again. The truck won't crank. I drove our old, beat up standby Geo to
the post office. Sure enough, the engine in the Blazer spins over but won't
fire. I have no clue what's wrong with it, nor what's wrong with the van. I am TIRED of working on vehicles I hate!
This bites.

Ken
