I keep getting people in Camaro Z28's and Trans Am's wanting to race me on the highway. I drive a 330Ci, not an M3. Muscle cars need to back off and go find some other muscle car to go F with.

a 330Ci is not something to laugh at. Besides, if you didn't have a bimmer, and you saw one that looked nice with a greater chance of beating than an ///m (stock in both cases), and you had penis envy, wouldn't you want to race every 330Ci that you came across?

Ah... fast cars... Yes, at least they have speed... Since they don't have much more... Isn't that right, ClarenceT?

Not bad at all...
What's the horsepower in that?

e46 m3 has almost equal times; I got stats saying 0-60 at 4.8 with 1/4 mile in 13/5s. I'm not sure I trust these yet. They seem a tad slower than some other stats I used to swear by, but the list just got old.

And I quote....

"The SS boasts, 320-horsepower instead of 305 and the 345 pound-feet of torque instead of 335."

"The harder ride doesn't produce any squeaks or rattles is testament to the Camaro's robust structural rigidity. Even with more power, the SS model is still easy to drive, with a delightful fluid six-speed shifter that is much easier to coordinate in around town environment than is, say, a BMW 540i's six speed."

Eh'. I don't believe it, but whatever.

I'll put you on my list of people to buy cars for when I'm a multi-millionaire.
I'm glad to see that you're well rounded in many different car categories.

Try this, Turbo or supercharge your car, even better, rip the whole engine out and replace it with a gas guzzling V8 with balls out poewr, Rip out the BMW suspension and steering, Replace it with something that cant make turns for shit.

Muscle car with looks to boot!
