You raced him? And of course when you raced him you did so on a sanctioned track and not on the street, right? Unless this is a simple case of the pot calling the kettle black.

So where did this race take place, on a track or on the street?

awww the 500 benz very sweet, sleek looking car. I think that would be better than "pimping" out your ride, but on the other hand it cost alot. Newyorker is right about no one really cares if you make your car look flashy. Most nice cars that i've seen are stock with new paint and some tints perhaps new wheels if it flows well. On another note I don't think its called class. Just seems like your trying to rub your money in other peoples faces.

Okay, I keep seeing "500 Benz"...

WHAT 500 MB are you talking about. There is no "500 benz" as a single car. Merecedes first and formost breaks down their cars by class (E Class, S class, ML class, SLK class etc...), then by engine size (350 = about 3.5L, 500 = about 5.0L). So when you say "500 benz" you are referring to no specific MB. In fact they have a SL 500, S 500, E 500, CLS 500, CL 500, CLK 500, R500 and G500. Try and be more specific!

Are you set on being a boy racer? To hobo....yes we raced on the street at 10:30PM with noone around. Today I ran against a newer integra behind my school in this big parking lot (nissan knows what im talking about). I had a girl in my car (about 150lbs) and a stock motor. He was runing an LS coupe 5 speed with an aem intake and full exhaust. Lets just say, that the gap was only a carlength when he won....matter of fact i dont know how to express this, but his tail was lined up with my nose.

I like custom cars, but they dont really impress people much, because sometimes they are so overdone, you cant even tell what car it is in the first place. I would suggest something more luxury. Save around 4000 dollars for a nice set of rims (and please to god invest in anti-theft locks because otherwise they WILL get stolen), tint the windows, and get a system going. Once again its your money and thats that. If I ever got the srt-4 I want, I wouldnt kit it, only do performance.

So you want speed? In that case get one of these
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Dodge...01 4073QQrdZ1
For 15k its already upgraded, and 04 was the best year. Then for the rest, you can do whatever you want. It already has an intake, and I tihnk an exhaust. Looks great, etc.etc.

Really? Look again. It sounds like a dumptruck? Its the fastest car you can buy new for under 20k. It keeps up with the WRX and probbably the TT as well. Shut your mouth if you dont know what to say.

So get the 2004. 230 horsepower, 250 torque, 5-speed, looks amazing, and weighs in at 2900lbs. Do the math. Its lightining fast. For the remaining money you can get it to 300 horsepower, and 310 (ish) torque and outrun any stock STi
