Wow

I'm still in shock, today my dealership was giving test drives to people in a Dinan Supercharged M3. All I can say is wow.

First off, I have friends with fast cars, so I thought I knew what fast acceleration was, but the acceleration I experienced today was just completely mind boggling! 423 horsepower will do that to you.
On top of that it was fully loaded with all the Dinan parts; brakes, wheels , full suspension.
I'm still a little dazed 8 hours later.. I mean, wow.
Just thought i'd share...

The car I was in didn't have the full length intercooler or something so it only made 423, the guy who took us out said the intercooler makes another 40 horsepower.
STILL, 423 was more than enough....
