The Myth of the "Real M Car"

The 1M was named that way because the M1 name is reserved for a different car. That is all.

The new generation of M5/6, E/CLS/S63 and RS6/7 are absolute weapons, with a remap and exhaust they get 700hp.

Hey Froggy

 

In the last 5 minutes I passed 2 zhps on the road. lol Plus I saw an 05 zhp convertible with hard top in that funky dark blue $10k. 109k miles although that is understandable on a 9-10 year old car.  Thought you might like to know

Sweet. Not looking for a convertible as I don't like them. Thanks for looking out!

Ran into a blacked out 458 today. Also got pulled over again and got a warning plain.gif Jesus.

How did you get the warning?

Was doing 27 or so in 20 and the cop told me to slow down and wrote me a warning.

I got so fucking lucky. Two tickets in less than a week? Phew.
post #12684 of 15724
he must have been quite bored to stop you for going 27mph.
post #12685 of 15724
prob just his appearance behind the wheel
post #12686 of 15724
Yeah. I was seriously face palming in the car while waiting for him to write me the ticket. The number of cops around lately has increased so much lately and I see people getting pulled over every single day. It's insane.

I guess my car is an easy target too because it starts to get noticeably loud at 4k rpm and the IB paint can stand out a lot when it's sunny. Car was washed recently too.

I really got lucky though. Whew.

In other news, apparently the ticket I got earlier will be easy to dismiss in court. The cop wrote down the wrong speed limit. He wrote that I was doing 60 in a 25 when the limit is really 35. Also, he didn't write how he got to that speed of 60 (I definitely was not going 60, he just guesstimated). Nothing about pacing.

Cop buddy of cab driver says he's he's heard of the guy who ticketed me and said he was an idiot for messing up the ticket so badly. Apparently I can get this easily dismissed in court by my self because no ones going to want to argue over a ticket with so many holes. We'll see about that. I might still hire an attorney and also see if the fine can be reduced.

Edit: GreenFrog, a wild lvl 2 hater has appeared! What will you do?

Greenfrog where are you located? It differs wildly depending on the state you're in. In Florida, for example, tickets are easy to beat. In NC it's a whole different story

Got caught in 3 automated speed traps with in a week every time doing 3mph over, which resulted in a 3x100$.
post #12689 of 15724
nasty in the US or Maryland at least the traps don't activate till you are 12mph over the posted speed limit.

Montgomery County has put in so many of those speed cameras within the last year it isn't funny.  DC has a bunch of new ones put in within the last 2 months as well.
