Haha, plans for downpipe and catback?

How is it compared to your old svt vs stock sonic 1.4T?

We should run before mods and after. I'm curious how they do lol

Hell yeah Mike! Now I can ride in it and feel what it'll be like the way I want it to be! Also as others have stated, plans for DP and exhaust?

I don't plan on removing either catalytic converter anytime soon. I'll prolly do a cat back but I'm not sure when. The system I want isn't available for purchase yet anyway.

I like it so much more than my old SVT.

Should be very fun still Mike. Any suspension plans? (I'm assuming you'll end up pretty low...)

Also the next M3 will only come in a sedan, and no manual option?

Slower? Equal? Faster? That's what I'm wondering. Driveabilty doesn't really count since two diff cars.

Also aku, what's $1k miles.

I heard that the new M5 coming out is the last M5 that will have a proper 3 pedal manual option but that all the M3's will always have a proper 3 Pedal option... But I don't remember where I heard that from.

Typing > Me. That's what it was.


Also just laid out my list of parts that I want to get on the G before (or shortly after) the start of the 2013 season. My wallet already hurts.

Haha, I dont think it even has 150 miles. I prolly won't install the kit til after 500 miles at least. Plus the car has to go back to the dealer to have some scratches repaired so I don't want that stuff on there while the dealer is doing work.

I'm excited for the tune, the car is kind of hard to drive tbh. It's just way different than the Focus. Getting take off down is becoming a bit of a challenge. The tune makes the throttle plates open 1:1 so it's suppose to improve take off greatly.

No suspension plans as of now. I love love love low cars this one however is going to have the stock suspension for a while if not forever. If I get a higher paying job though ya never know.
