yeah if your thinking about running a turbo at least have 8-10 grand before you start, or you can go the NA way and spend thousands of dollars like me :)

tisk tisk...
cmon kids, lets not get too upset.
Someone just called me a retard..imagine how my feelings would've hurt if i was a retard?
i suggest we stick to giving car advice.
I hereby swear and affirm that i regret making references to penises
and gutless wonders who shake like dogs s**t razor blades at the thought of driving with no insurance.

regards,

fharkov.(wink)

Miss Lippy, the part of the story I don't like, is that the boy stops looking for his dog after an hour. He just sits on his porch like a goon, he didn't put up posters or anything. That boy's gotta think "You got a pet, you got a responsibility! You can't just look for an hour and call it quits. So you get your a** out there and you find that f**k' dog!"

You may think your a good driver, wait till you get out there on the road, its not yourself you need to worry about, its all the other d***heads out there on the road who either don't know the road rules or just choose to ignore them. I think someone said this already, you learn something new everyday, im learning everytime i get behind the wheel. As far as turboing your XF, you'll probably end up pranging it somehow, most P platers have an accident of some sort after they get their license, drive for a couple of years then think about some serious mods. Thats my 2 cents

Allright, another 15 year old Superhero! God help you! we were all invincible on the road at one stage! Then ya have an accedent! You wake up f**k quickly. I know I did when that truck ran into the side of the Ute I was drivin. Both I, and My GF of the time were like to get out with out any injuries! Do what I did mate, f**k around with a junker on your P's, and then get your self somthin nice!

3 years ago, I didnt picture me driving what I am driving now! And I am actually getting a turbo myself in a couple of months but I am only gonna run low boost on the streets and save the engine (Yes Engine) for the strip and the dyno!

haha, i'm back! :)

after much insult i have decided to sell my xf......

first off, me " ricing " my xf even though i wasnt, was gay,

xf's are so called trouble.

the car is older than me,

i "cant handle the big 6"

i should "learn to drive first"

my "pockets" arent deep enough to afford a turbo,

and it seems like some people think im better off with a f**k moped.
