My 1989 Honda civic vs the M3

I have a 1989 Honda Civic thats an absolute jewel! I love the civic it has 38 mpg and top speed of 67mph. I can sometimes get it up to 72mph while going downhill. I have a stock engine, stock rims, stock tires and rims. It was $400 when i bought it last year. I also put 2 18" subs in the back. I wanted to know if the M3 can beat it in a race because this car is quick! Most the time i don"t have to push it to get it started.

This is a link of the photo of the car tell me what you think or any tips for performance.

You picked wrong car to compare. Your Civic is in the range of Ferrari or something like that. Go visit other forums and surprise them.

I wish I still had my 88 Tercel. Standard transmission. 13" wheels. You tapped the volume knob to make it louder and tapped it again to make it softer - it just knew me so well.

Try putting car into neutral when you go downhill. You should get more than 72mph. Civic has always been my dream car that I have yet to fulfill. Lucky you.

If that indeed is a G-Power 600hp M3, then the Civic would blow away a 997TT

I miss my turboed Integra. Boosted at 18psi on a T3/T04E, it gave sport bikes a run for their money on the highway. Yeah sure it looked like crap, but I loved the sound. I still can't decide if the sound of my V8M with Agency Power exhaust is better than 18psi turbo spool on a small Honda.

Loved both cars.

This thread still sucks though.

Top speed of 67 mph? Dude, your car has some serious mechanical issues.
