      That was my car don't be jelly, and here is a video from the P/O; so if this isn't proof that the car is completely functional you must be a dunce.

      lol the car was catless in that video too

      Forget that. Catless sounds great to me. Love hearing it

      Probably loosing some time going off the road hitting the apex so hard. Be less aggressive and more graceful. Ass kicking out like it did after that one right is pushing a little hard. Great vid and driving otherwise better than I would do with rwd e36

      the only justification the people of this forum have for why NOT to go catless is that you cant see any numbers in HP gain on a dyno. The performance gain is to small to see it on a dyno but it is there non the less. I guess it would just be personal preference on noise if you want a cat or not and the people on here dont like the noise.

      I don't believe in CO2 emissions causing global warming crap, but why polute the air by running catless without any significant gains. It's totally idiotic.

      Yes i love the hill climb events because living in western PA all we have is hills to play on lol and i didnt do anything to the setup of the car since the previous owner aside from a set of polished style 5s instead of black centered ones .... also i put a difffernt muffler since the one that it had in this video was old and reallly worn out, its the same one just new

      Oh and to catless it does help in the higher rpm range witch is where your at most of the time when driving hard so it does serve a point as well as i would love summer weather all year in PA

      Yes, cats do work cleaning exhaust. This isn't the 1970's and cats aren't performance robbers they use to be. A proper highflow, metal core cat, like one from Magnaflow, makes the same power as a test pipe.

      So wait are we hating on the fact that it is catless(don't we have another thread for this?) or because it is a ruined M3(continuation of the thread that got locked?)? i'm a little confused here.

      don't you have D2 or DDM coilovers? yeah, look into something better

      you should also look into getting some wheels where you can run tires at least as wide as stock

      Yea, the car was ripped on hard before it was slammed on heavy wheels with stretched tires. Maybe you still rip on it but its obviously compromised when it comes to balls out performance. That's fine though, its your car and still a nice car regardless. And I'm in love with that video..

      First of all, not saying we shouldn't be concerned about the total amount of co2/vol in our atmosphere. It would effect mammals only, not plants. Something cold blooded cannot get cancer, like a shark, scientist have tried giving them cancer, no dice. Cancer is directly related to something warm blooded.

      A little bird told me tree's and the planet love co2.

      A little mouse told me co2 was 14 times higher in the cretaceous period, earth didn't care.

      We are currently at a concentration of 0.039% by volume. .041%/vol would only hurt us, not the planet.

      By studying the chart below, and now having this info of what humanity can withstand, it's CLEAR AND OBVIOUS that this is a perfect time for the earth to support humanity. If it naturally started to rise again, to almost any other point in history, we would either die or adapt if it happened slow enough. Co2 has almost zero correlation with global average temp. Humanity has almost zero contribution to total atmospheric levels on the big scale. Basically we couldn't pump co2 into the air fast enough, the oceans and trees pretty much absorbed it all over history, except for that .03.

      So if you are one of these tree freaks, read this from co2 wiki:

      "Plants can grow up to 50 percent faster in concentrations of 1,000 ppm CO2 when compared with ambient conditions, though this assumes no change in climate and no limitation on other nutrients.[67] Research has shown that elevated CO2 levels cause increased growth reflected in the harvestable yield of crops, with wheat, rice and soybean all showing increases in yield of 12–14% under elevated CO2 in FACE experiments.[68][69]"



      What lies before you and what lies behind you, is different than what lies to your face (tv.) Just look at their solutions. Carbon taxes total control of your modern life. Shut down industries here, which would send even more companies abroad, where there is NO co2 emission standards, co2 would rise if that happened. Electric motors GIVE POLUTION. Small particles of metal from the coils are released, theoretically causing more damage than co2 would. EVEN their solution is a FAKE. Global warming is a PROVED SCAM to further control your life. Welcome to the matrix. Unplug.

      So basically, go cat-less. It's safe, and sounds tits
