There's no status in "smoking" anyone. Are you 12?

So you think because your E90 is an M sport, that qualifies it to be a status car?

Sir, your E90 is old news now wether it be a LCI or Pre LCI.

Call me when you get a F10 or the F30 eventually..

Let's hope he's got some new material. Or else he's going to commit the ultimate sin, the only one for which this thread can still get you banned. He's going to be boring.

Lousy! Still skim ice on the pool cover every morning, though the Koi pond is thoroughly melted. Black snowy residue where the winter plowing piles were.
Cold and rainy every other day. Perfect Saab weather. The 335, not so much.

Very true, it has been a horrible spring so far around here. Not to even mention the winter we had.

I am looking forward to this weekend.

The P Zero tires were brand new (that morning), and the ambient temps were cold. Heat is the big enemy at that speed, not centrifugal force, so I was hardly worried.*

The story runs on Autoblog this Friday.

And your not even a bad looking guy. Yea I really hate you.

On a side note, with speed ratings, do you think they are just conservative? So speed rating Y may be for 186mph, but that's conservative where there is a nice buffing pad?

Here's your makeup class.

Emission starts perfect thread for his Autoblog Annex. No one wants to talk about cars.
BJ 1.0 returns. Sounds just like old BJ. Needs new material.
Andyffer returns. Sounds just like his parents. Needs new material.
Cwinter returns. Sounds like he's still not getting enough sleep. Parents' needs immaterial.
DSX still needs a life.

LA finally warming up...70's....perfect HPFP repair weather. Fixed TODAY! No more Nissan Sentra rental (an incentive from my dealer after I told them that my lease is running out soon). I'll return the favor.

Bimmerfest may be at the forefront of a new social trend:

(Out of touch with) reality shows.

Unfortunately the season began with reruns.

That is what happens when you have no life like I do not and you watch every single car review on youtube.
