Beyond that, keeping a momentum car for the track makes one a better driver in the end.

But yeah, if you live your life a quarter mile at a time, have the money for a kickin system in your hidden nitrous turbo omg FD, N/A is misguided.

Just poor, learning, and like curves... and still going turbo. Look in my build thread for the first piece of ARTech work done for me. :P
Well, if i had it to do again, i would have kept this na for the track, and bought a nb to turbo and drive on the street.

Don't have 150,000$ to throw at a shop like that guy did. :P

Happy with a 1991 318i. Chip, springs, shocks, sways, RE-11's and some 15x7 tire rack wheels is enough for it. No more messing with it... keep it reliable... *continues to murmur leave it alone to self*
