Fixed (grammatically).

85% of the Japanese cars we see? The most common Japanese cars include the Camry, Civic, Accord, etc. Some (Not all) would be able to beat that car on a track. The BMW had about 180hp I believe, most of the $35,000 (Not $50,000) paid for it went towards the interior, which does look nice. From what I understand, the car had weaker low-end acceleration, but did pretty well at higher speeds (Past 50mph). I believe you that it would handle better (BMW's generally have good weight distribution).

However, for arguments sake, if you were to put it against a mid to early 1980s Ford Mustang GT, which would cost about the same, the race would be pretty close (Not sure which would win). The Mustang was also a lot cheaper new. I agree that the car was great, but maintenance on it still isn't very cheap and it's somewhat not reliable. The main benefit, that I see, to a 24 year old car is that it is done depreciating. Toyota doesn't make many racing cars, but an old Supra, from 1985 for example, could probably beat the BMW. A Nissan 240SX or Subaru Impreza, again for around the same price, would be pretty close too, with MSRPs much lower than the BMW. I don't think Mitsubishi has any cars that can compete though. There are many cars that can beat it, but it wasn't made for racing, it was made for luxury.

funny thing is, every ricer we raced on the highway (mostly nissans) and every truck (v-8 rams hemi's) always got smoked...then we got a new radio,and thats when 'the incident' happened when we went to race a honda and an impala.the impala got smoked. the car we were in (the bmw) had so much torque that the radio was sliding out of its slot. our mechanic (theo, R.I.P.) lost the peice for it, so I had to hold the radio in place, and THEN my dad beat thehonda. the car is NOT a peice of shit. funny thing is, its mostly stock. we got a performance differential in it, a K&N air filter,bilstein shocks, and racing dynamics sway bars. it is NOT a peice of sh*t beater

Your argument might be more persuasive if you used proper spelling and punctuation, and didn't finish your posts with "".

What the f*ck are you talking about? Where did I say not to type like that? Point it out. Who the f*ck do you think I am to take away anyone's rights? What I did say is that it would be much better if you typed properly, because people might actually consider reading what you spew. I think you're abusing your right to freedom of speech.
What I'm saying is that when you type like that, you seem imbecilic. There is a difference between freedom of speech and common courtesy. Also, rumour on these forums has it that every "" emoticon you use, your IQ drops 3 points. Just from this thread, you're down to the low 50's.
