What happens to your BMW when you're not "Keepin' it Real!"...(pics)
So I was online looking for parts for my 318i and the seller of the poor 98 318i said some kid rebadged it and tried to keep up with Cayenne (400 HP). Poor kid thought the M3 badge added HP to his 4banger.
I guess the kid didn't know what he was doing when he fishtailed and spun outta control at a turn(from the pics I can see it had to be the bald-ass tires )
now I hear he takes the bus to school..
Umnitza now provides a mechanic to install all parts ordered right in the box! It's their new "Total customer service program" that will eliminate all the haters and keep incompetents from breaking **** and blaming the vendor! When you are all set simply call INS and they will pick him up free of charge.
that's what he gets for putting an ///M badge on a 318
yeah and showing off....
last night I raced a E39 (2002 or 2003) 530i on the way home. It was this jamaican kid and we were coming down Atlantic Ave. I knew his car had more power but we were playing cat and mouse in mild traffic at night on an very dark industrial road with overhead railroad tracks and more potholes that swizz cheese9its a main truck route thru Brooklyn). I actually beat him, not by driving faster or having a fast car, but by driving smarter plus my new bilsten sports shocks are awesome for handling tight turns and squeezing in between slow cars.
His car was lowered it seemed and he was avoiding potholes and manhole covers. I never noticed the E39 body is way too big and clumsy (relative to my E36 body) to manuver thru traffic at high speeds. Anyway I won and I didn't even need an M3 or a M3 badge!

A 318i does have the power to get the back end to wander out. I am not sure if you can do it with a stock suspension. But if I enter a 90 degree right hander hard on the brakes at about 40 (going in not sustained) in 2nd then go right over to the gas, I can get the back end to slide out in a very controlable manner. But I think it is only because of the extra force put on my tires from my suspension mods, with a little help from the engine. But it only does it whilst accelerating.
I also almost posted my first response on bimmerwerkz... then I was like WTF? I already posted that. I need to stick to one forum. This is getting confusing...
