so very very very early this morning i was coming home, being an ass and taking my feelings out with my driving. anyway...I stopped at a stop sign and some truck pulled up next to me. Since i pulled up to the sign sreeching im sure they were like wtf?
Revved it to 3000 and slipped the clutch flawlessly...was at 35 before i even got across the small intersection. Guess my 318 has more balls then i thought.
either way..had to share my perfect launch experience. I usually wouldnt do that..but was in the mood i guess.
i then almost ran the next stop sign(a block later) and slammed the brakes like never before. she stopped on a dime.
We all get the urge...Saturday early morning...nothing to do till noon... BMW FTW

Hell yea the little m42 is great! You want some real stopping power get some hawk hp+ on it and be prepared to go through the windows!!!! I have them on now they are ment to be my track pads but I haven't gotten a replacement, once you forget about the horribly loud noise they make (goes away when they are properly heated up, unfortunatly in the city they dont get much of a chance).
Cels, just get to know the car go out and stomp it.

talking of launching reminds of an incident few weeks ago, I had taken my wife to work and was driving home around 8.15 in the evening.
I noticed a taxi in my rear view riding my bumper, now I'm on a dual carriageway (2 lane highway) with a speed limit of 40mph and this guy in the taxi is trying to push me, we come to a set of traffic signals they are at red , so i'm thinking i got to lose this guy, the lights go green, i stomp on the gas, and in about 8 seconds Im doin 65mph and the taxi is rapidly dissapearing in my rear view.
What got me is, I didnt know my car was capable of accelerating so damn fast, i was amazed, and very happy, for a 318 tourer she can sure as hell shift.
