well, mum gets to drive the bosses ba Mk2 xr6 (non turbo) for a few days, and just went for a drive with dad (no i didnt get to drive :( )

and well, first impressions, pretty damn cosy, and well, for a NA engine, they hammer pretty well! and quite effortlessly it would seem..

anyhow just thought id share my first experience in one :D

really wouldnt mind one, even withotu turbo, but we all knwo a turbo would be better :twisted:

my mums got a bmw 528i and its got a full remus system, 9" wide tyres, k&n performance air filter(plus new piping) and it has a total bald spot... it goes from about 40-50 slow as s**t (foot flat but no feel) then from 50-80 in a nano second and 80-140 in about 4 seconds... its a real fun car as i said it just takes a bit to get going then BAM its gone....

(btw on a track dont yell at the dodgey L plater)

well it wont be a 318 as thats a 4 cly.
could be a 320,325,328 if its a e36 or if a e46 then 320 325 330,
the no after the first one is a indicator of what engine its got, eg 318 3 series 1.8 lt for the older models new one is 2ltr.
