I hear on this message board people putting in exhaust,chips, superchargers but do you even race your cars? I am a young fanactic owner of a 1998 m3 4dr 5spd and my car is all stock. I have 1,700 miles on it and i have raced many cars as the formula ram air firebird and a 93 mustang gt. My point is you guys put chargers, chips etc, but dont race your cars. That doesnt make no sense. Like last week, on a friday night I pulled out up to a 2 dr m3 around 95 yr. We were on a red light, and i punched it after the light, the old guy didn't even race me, in fact his car was a dinan m3. My comment is to all those people who dont race but have a exhaust,etc? Are u gys scarced of losing or what

Since when does "punching it at a red light" constitute racing??!?!?! Did you ever stop to think that this "old guy" may only open his car up at autocrosses, rallies or other track events where safety is paramount? People may be modifying their cars for BMW Car Club Of America sanctioned events on the weekends, not for "Formula Ram Air Firebirds" when they're "on a red light" as you so eloquently put it. "That dosen't make no sense" to me.<p><i>: I hear on this message board people putting in exhaust,chips, superchargers but do you even race your cars?

The only place to race is on the track not on the street. I give the guy you mentioned with the Dinan M3 a lot of credit because he knows he has the power to out drive you but chose not to.

On the other website (Haven), this same question was brought up? Do any adults drive M3's? Alot of people race short distances on the street, maybe the "Dinan M3 old guy" looked around and it did not look safe. Especially with a young fanatic in the other car who can't even spell the word......no telling what the fanatic-kid might do in an emergency situation at night. I can't blame the "old guy", I would probably not have raced the young fanatic either. Incidentally who's paying for the 1998 M3, sometimes that makes the difference when it is safe to race on the street?

the phrase "holier than thou"(not 'now'). How about the phrase "to each his own"...ever hear of that one? Anybody should be able to modify their car and use it as they see fit. If they're 'posers', then so be it. Yes, we know your RUF Turbo R is probably king of the hill at all the stoplights in your area, but are we supposed to be impressed???

Havn't met up with a Porshe driver yet that could keep up through more than 2 turns. Maybe because all they do is use up the tires driving fast in straight lines. My old Camaro used to do that too for about 1/10 the cost.<p><i>: I have to laugh at all of you "holier than now bmw owners" who preach racing on the track.

of damaging their "status" symbol. It is like they just bought this fabrege egg that they paid way too much for. Would you start throwing around your new fabrege egg that you just paid $10,000 for? Of course not.<p>Ok, ok, ok...apologizes to the only three road racers on this entire message board. We know this doesn't apply to you. <p>And don't give me this crap about how the rest of you auto-X and road race. Auto crossing your BMW twice does not qualify you as racer.
