We both know you're curious as to what It's putting out, It's a question of whether you want to spend the money to find out.
No reason to spend that til next summer though. I hope to get it out once or twice more this year and then it's garage time.

I still want a '69 someday. But, as a friend of mind told me, "For the price, you cannot go faster than a C5 Vette." And he's right.

Congrats on the car. I can't stand the pop up lights on those older models though.

Honestly I'm not a huge fan of the C6's because they don't have pop up lights.

I died on my persuit of a vette // to many other expenses.

Any case I always liked the change over on the front air dam as well as adding duel roll bars.

have you thought of this trick options ??

(Installs not a big deal , and dresses the rag top up IMO)

Yes, even a 2000 would run a 2010 335i off the road.

There's a multitude of reasons why I bought it now. Primarily, my expenses will never be lower. I don't have a mortgage, I don't have a family, I don't have another debt/payment in the world outside of living expenses (rent, insurance, phone, etc.) By the time I'm done paying for this car I'll be 25. I've wanted one since I was about 5 years old, and try squeezing it into the budget when you have a mortgage, a family, and kids.


the car is fire and it sounds like your situation is manageable, congrats dude
