well, sorry to dissapoint all of you, but its a volvo

i know i know.. i hate the mentality somewhat too..oh his parents jsut gave him there old volvo

but, my dads friends father has a lightpressure (non-R) turbocharged xc wagon that i could get for under kbb value i think it has around 120k on it

its no horrible looking either, i could get it tinted up and make it mad hot.

also, it would be like the ultimate sleeper, cause i know a kid (18 or 19) that works for a guy that specializes in volvo's he modded the shit out of his old volvo...turbocharged it, blow off valves, the whole shizzle, so he said he could help me get it going real fast real cheap

its not a bmw, but i think for now it will do.. i will most definetly be buying a bmw 3 series when i have the cash though.

if i get it ima still post here :P cause even though its not a bmw i can learn alot from peoples experiences with their cars and jsut about cars in general by being active in these forums

the quality is very good on the car i love the paint because unlike the bmw water based paint this doesnt chip as easily and it looks more richh

i like the power of the TT engine ohh man once the twin turbos come online you hav to hold on to something tight

its a neat car but only for family use like going into mountainous areas and the beach stuff like that thats why my parents bought it

like i mentioned before its an awesome long distance cruiser

still theres nothing like a bimmer

I have a buddy with a 740 that he has spent a great deal of time on. Last 1/4 mile run, he had an ET of 14.0. For a 4 cyl, four door grocery getter, that ain't bad!

Of course, it sounded like a tractor at idle. Turbo, decent I/C, megasquirt'n'spark, and so forth.
