^Thank you sir
I was going to go all out on the M3 and then the next day I sat at Active Autowerke's and found out how much there exhaust was and I sat to myself thinking, "why am I going to spend all this money to only go marginally faster?"

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Wake up folks this a rigged game by the government and the oil companies. Oil went to $101/barrel (55 gallons)and the pump price $3.55 to $4.07 per gallon, now flash back to July Aug 2008. -Oil peaked at $147/barrel and the price at the pump was $3.67 per gallon. Basically in 2008, the taxes, refining, delivery costs, wholsaler fees and profits cost $1.00 per gallon over the crude cost. Now ask yourself this why is the the price of gasoline today is as high as it was in 2008, when the cost per gallon of crude today is 68% of what it was in 2008. Basically our federal, state and local governments has added almost a 32% tax increase sine 2009. Based on actual costs, if you still gave the governments and companies the same $1.00 markup, the price of gas today should be $2.87 not almost $4.00 per gallon. It’s time to write the president,m congress and gas company and tell them enough is enough unless the real intent is to nationalize America!
