you know you own a REAL german car when...

hoppy once said: its not a german car unless the warning label is in german first, english second. well.. most of the labels on my bug arnt even in english actualy, i dont think any of them are in english!

when you have a 4cylinder and still blow away some of the v8 guys.(not my bug, god no! was referring to the e30 m3)


when a 70's german car can outhandle a newer corvette (real2002 said that, or what ever his screen name is.)


thats all iv got fornow.

You know it's a real German car when you have 150k on it and that's not considered high mileage.

my guess would be that ou should be driving not eating/drinking. Seems logical, but the times we live in do not let us just do one thing at a time anymore.(that sentence is fucked up)

anyways...thats my idea.
