    Sure. Um. My car ROCKS!!! :lol:

    Well, actually it's a VW so it's a total piece of crap, but it's a highly entertaining piece of crap. 2004 VW R32.

    Ya well I wish I had a car. I would love an R32. I think you should get it re flashed, haha. My dad got like a 15hour free trial of it to try and see if it smoothed out the turbo lag, on his 1.8t. It did a little but he said it wasn't worth the $500 to keep it. They just plug a laptop in and reflash it, they also get power output charts, like from a dyno run. I believe it bumped it from 180hp to 220hp, but I could be wrong.

    I like to think that my car is kinda interesting.

    It's a well modified 1999 Grand Prix GTP. It doesn't do too bad for a 4-door grocery getter with a police radar and GPS verified top speed of 162MPH, 12.7 seconds at 107mph with slicks and 13.2 at 105mph on street tires in the 1/4 mile (I have well over 200 track slips that are 13.9 and quicker). It dynoed a little over 390hp at the front wheels two years ago.

    My favorite aspect of the car? Driving at a steady 70mph on the highway, it gets consistent 38-39mpg and 20mpg in the city as long as I don't honk on the gas pedal (at the track my readout shows 5mpg... lol). Not bad for a car that can carry 5 people and 2 weeks of groceries... and it does it all on 87 octane and is my daily driver winter and summer.

    This is a small banner I made with some pics I took of my car on a hot summers day the first year I had it (which was last year, come to think of it)

    It's a 1997 BMW 320i touring, totally unmodified enginewise but still quite fun to drive :)
