Ricebox vs. Krautbox



There is also Pastabox (Italian). What about British, what should we call them? Also, maybe we should call Japanese cars "Bentobox" instead, and maybe German cars should Bratwurstbox!

that civic is a beast plain and simple, and the m6 is no sports car.

m6 is overweight, overpriced.. a ford gt500 basically puts out the same performance for $50k compared to the m6 at $110k.. so you're paying $60k for a bmw badge and a nicer interior... the gt500 beats the m6 external styling wise hands down..

At the end of the day, if I wanted some style, that civic isn't it. Nothing but a nasty garage queen, and pointless to the majority!

Why cant people appreciate a fast clean civic?....The guy could have got an e46 m3 for the same price but he decided to go with a fast civic. On top of that the man can drive...you can tell by the way he shifts.

I got news for you, anybody can buy, and shift a civic. I'd go post over at the club-civic, if you want people to care, more then they can, or will here.

Haha at the glowing muffler. Are you kidding me? It's NOT glowing y'all. It's a canister style muffler and the light is hitting it perfectly to shine it up, particularly due to the HIDs of the M6.

Geez, think of exactly how hot things would have to be for a muffler to glow. DP's? Yes. Headers? Yes. A muffler 8 feet away, um, NO. His whole bumper would have melted off long ago.

I agree I've taken reading off modified Porsche turbo's which have direct turbo to exhaust/ muffler set ups. At its highest the turbo read 1200 F the cat read 600 before, and 300 after.

By the time the exhaust gets to the muffler can there's no way it's going to make it glow, also for reference this turbo was running 1.5 bar compared to the civic running .9

1.0 bar = 15psi


man I miss working on Porsches sometimes...
