I think it would be a good run...I pulled on a buddy of mines 95m3 by a good bit when we ran from about 20-85ish...i wanna run a s52 m3 or something but never seem to get around anything other than 318s or 325/328s and its not even close.

Time is something like 10-9 seconds with a lot of wheel hop and I had to let off in first, I think I can get it down to 7-8 if I can stay on the power with good tires

Amazon seller Cmple.

Karl, material & construction isn't nearly as important in digital formats as old analog cables. If they last a year I'll be happy as hell, cuz all that's less than one HDMI cable at the store.

Fuel rail isn't that bad. Wiper motor was probably the worst part, right?

First thing I did when I got it home was take the rack off the Rover.

My plan is to use it

It came with a bike attachment which i intend to use (on the runway we use for auto x a bike would come in handy)

and i want to find a basket for it, then i have a e36 pickup truck pretty much lol.

My old jetta seen sheets of plywood on its rack

and me and my friend rob just used his rack to bring home a full size toyota bumper from the junk yard with his cressida.

I like that as long as i have straps, i can haul a whole lotta sh*t

I don't doubt the capability. I moved more than one couch with the Yakima roof rack I had on my Maxima. Leaving them on is usually annoying though due to drag.
