If the 3-series convertible is a Cabrio, shouldn't the 1-series vert be Cabrito?

His wife, who is in the bed, responds....

"That`s not a pig, it`s a sheep !"

"I wasn`t talking to you" he responded.

Oh Bob, no, just no. I laughed and now I have to go repent.

Not to get off-topic, but did the headers finally cure your lack-of-power problem?

Oh heavens yes! Check out the vids on my youtube page. My car is an animal. 0-60 in 5.6 sec (crude testing method, but somewhere in the 5s, before I was in the 8s), beat a 2009 Mustang GT in a drag race to 80mph, traction control lights o-plenty in 2nd gear now, and just an amazing sound!

I don't remember if I said it here or on ZHPMafia, but the car has a lot of E36 M3 rawness to it which I love, the 3.46 diff has really come into it's own and become noticeable, and it just revs and revs and revs.

And to those who want to say "it isn't an animal", I understand it isn't an M5, or an M3 or whatever. But I challenge you to find a 182cu in motor that can move a 3300lb car with the swiftness this one does.

I haven't had the rematch with the 323 yet, my bro in law drove my car and doesn't see the need. It would be a blood bath.
