That's why you always have to be aware of what's around you: ahead and behind. Always assume the car in the next lane is a moron.

I don't have a big problem with people pushing well beyond the speed limit. Just don't do it in traffic or with passengers.

I personally can't stand it when I get a ticket going 85 and the 19 giant SUV's surrounding me are doing 82.

Yeah that bugs me too. Pretty hard to go too fast for conditions in an m3. Compared to some beater who has the pedal on the floor to get it to go 65 and its ready to fall into pieces. Practice based liscensing should be allowed. Better drivers proven by testing get extra right!

I love the rest of the GT-R's shape but not the front end.
I feel the same way about the new Audi RS5. It has one BIG GIANT grill that makes the front end look hideous, IMO, but the rest of the car is fantastic.
The GT-R's performance can't be denied. It's a monster

Been there! 1991 trip from Frankfurt to Berlin, I almost ran up a Trabbi's ass on the Autobahn! I only had a VW GTI back then. Can totally relate.

I was just looking at our schedule for calling people out on their BS and I thought I was on for today. Was there a revision? I know I missed that update in June and I still feel silly about it.

+1! and the car has only 25 miles on it! Thing is, would you still buy a brand new car, if you know that someone did 140mph in it? The salesman should be fired, to say the least.

I never said the m3 was light. For the record, my car weighed in at 3500 lbs when it was corner balanced. I don't think id get a sense of satisfaction passing cars all day in an awd car full of computer assisted corrections. I'm glad it satisfies you. Just means you bought the right car for you. I take pride in knowing I did most of the work myself even if I'm the slowest in the group.

I would. It's a car. It's made for that. I test drove the shit out of my car on the test drive.

Be prepared for the sausage fest onslaught you get in a GTR. Every person age 12-60 with a swinging dick will be harassing you anytime you stop (that includes stop lights). Atleast in the M3 1/10 is a good looking woman.

This is very true. My experience exactly. You don't even have to be parked to have dudes hanging out their windows to get a look or take a pic.
