    enjoy it while you have it. Once we're in Iran and gas is $9.07 a gallon, that car will be a cool looking lawn ornament.

    I drive a Honda Jazz, not flash but a very nice drive. Goes, turns and stops where and when I want it to I'm a happy driver.

    When I'm talking about tint I'm not talking about 35% tint, more like limo tint from the b piller and back.

    I'm not talking about OZ, Ronal etc. as they aren't cheap by any means (at least not in europe), I'm talking about those where you can get 4 19" tires and 4 wheels for a 1000$ or less.

    Ronal and BBS makes a lot of the original oem wheels for VW, Audi, MB and BMW etc. the wheels on the Mk5 GTi are made by Ronal for example and a lot of audis wheels like speedlines are made by BBS, so I'm not surprised that a lot of the smaller tuner wheels are made by them as well.

    Zender are cult wheels for vw fans now and actually goes for a good bit of money.




    The ring is a officially a toll road, which is why you can drive there without a race license etc. and I highly doubt they will be doing ANY expansions within the next 10+ years, as they were very close to going bankrupt last year (or they actually did) due to some insane projects f.ex. a roller coaster going trough a building, which only drove once, as it would ruin the building due to the shaking etc.

    I love when people post the same pic of their cars multiple times in a desperate attempt to attention whore.

    In my mind, Vipers have not aged well. I think I got over their looks when I was 13.

    Enjoy it though.

    The early Viper GTS really reminds me of the Michael Keaton bat mobile.

    BMWs and Porsches playing at the Ring --- probably a test day for the manufacturers:

    The white M3s with the Motorsport stripes are the current Ring Taxis.

    I think the Viper is one of the best looking modern sports to come out of America. Same with the 98-02 Trans Am WS6.

    Trans Am? The car with the ugly nostrils? The ZR1 so much better looking.

    The 4th Gen Trans Am has a soft spot in my heart. We had a 97 WS6, with LT1 and 6 Speed. It was the first sport/muscle car my parents bought while I was young. It was bored into a 383 Stroker with LT4 cam and a bunch of other stuff. It was a very quick car. I bought a 98 Trans Am WS6 when I turned 18, because I could and parents said I could not have one... Both the cars where white with black interior. I loved the very intimidating look of the 98 WS6... Not going to deny, both these cars where a POS.

    I'm rarely this jealous. Was it as awesome as I imagine?
    Many congratulations -- Vipers always catch my eye.


    Him and half the people with cool cars in this thread. That would make me regret the M Coupe instead of an Exige, I'll tell you that!
