      I have the Z3 rack in my E36 and I looove it.

      So why not sell your E30 M3 for big $$$ and use the proceeds to find a clean non-M E30 and swap in an S50/2?

      Clearly, you have money to blow on making this car exactly what you want it to be. I say go for it, but I personally would be thrilled even with the M50 in there now. :thumbup:

      Great looking car. It fixes one of my only qualms with the E30 M3: the engine. Let's be honest: the S14 is too high-maintenance, too expensive, and makes too little torque. It was practically thrown...

      I think that, to some extent, the goal posts have been moved by the Focus ST and Fiesta ST. If those cars did not exist and VW followed up the Mk6 with the Mk7, our frame of reference would still be...

      They do have a point in that VW's suspension setups tend to err on the side of stability and understeer versus, for example, the Fiesta ST with it's immediate turn-in and looser rear end. Personally,...

      As with every previous generation of R, it's a Haldex-based setup. Because it has no center differential, most of the time well over 50% the power is going to the front wheels (EDIT: Or maybe not?)....

      There are quite a few on the Mk6 R sub-forum here that picked up their Golf R after owning faster/more expensive cars. I know of one 60 year-old guy in particular.

      I'm amazed the plaid cargo shorts didn't tip off the Ferrari dealer that these American bros are not to be entrusted with such a car.

      I tend to like rooting for underdogs, I'm glad Buick is doing well. But I'd still never buy one (then again, I'd probably never buy anything made by GM). But I wonder how long this resurgence can...

      My family's Camry experience was notably different from what seems to be the norm. Our expectations were high, but not unreasonably given the car's reputation.

      It was a beige 1996 2.2 LE automatic...

      So I pretty much hate GM cars. However, I sat in one at this year's auto show and was impressed. Proper black interior, clearly laid-out instrumentation, great seats and seating position, and a...

      I'm sympathetic to the cause of the Si. It won't be long now before we can't buy a light-ish, naturally aspirated sporting car with a traditional LSD*. That being said, the Si coupe looks like...

      Seriously, just sell your Passat and go get a newer 5-door GTI with DSG. Two birds, one stone.

      Thanks for your input. I drove the 8th Si waaay back when they were new and came away with more positive feelings than when I drove the S2k. Perhaps it just comes down to expectations. But I was...

      Okay, so your input here is valuable to me: I definitely took it to redline. Would I hate an 8th generation Si? Because I drove one of those once and I remember the top-end rush feeling more...

      My experience test driving an S2000 was similar. I went in expecting to love it. I've never driven a car that makes so much sound and fury to go so slowly...except maybe my parents' old Dodge Caravan...
