1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    First post quoting a post from 06 and making fun of someone wearing a helmet while on a track. :facepalm:

    Driving it back to back with my e90, I still think the M3 is the better driver's car. Lighter, more nimble, sharper,higher revving, makes nicer sounds....it's more of what you'd expect an M car to be.

    I don't know if M cars are evolving to be more like this M5 - if they are, then there's no real differentiation with AMG and they will have to build their cars faster/ more torquey, etc. to win in the marketplace, especially now that AMG has finally built cars that can turn and shift nice. I read a few comparison reviews and some hate the M5, some love it. The performance numbers on the E63 are slightly better.

    Anyway, I don't mind admitting that I loved driving the car. I haven't comparison shopped yet, but BMW has always had superior pricing to MB for similar cars. Piob may comment with greater expertise on leasing deals, but I haven't seen a fantastic deal for an MB that I can remember.

    Chris Harris did a head to head with the M5/6, E63 and some other car that wasn't an Audi RS (which it should have been).

    Finally got around to scanning a couple pictures from 2004 from Blackhawk Farms Track Day. It was mostly Lotus Elises but somehow I snuck in.

    It was an interesting color to say the least. No body panel on that car matched lol.

    Well, there's certainly precedent for that:

    They are a special car (at least the mk3...the beetles were only in central america I think so I never saw one). I probably couldn't bring myself to own one, but they are quite interesting vehicles in person. Of course they drive just like the regular vr6, but they are visually stunning.

    I used to call mine the "subtle harlequin" in respect to those. My body shop guy hated me when I bought an R32 rear bumper.

    I haven't had it for 10 years, but it got so many parking hits it was 4 different shades of black if not more.

    Very nice! I always liked the A3. I don't think we get the good ones on this side of the pond though. We always get watered down versions of every car. :brick:

    After the 20th I had a MKV GTI

    Then an 08 R

    I was a VAG nut for awhile. Nowadays I have a company hyundai :brick:
