What do you drive? I'm fairly certain it's not a new 3 series.

Does what I drive have anything to do with his ignorant comment? I'm not the one throwing out ignorant comments about cars I apparently know nothing about.

I wasn't aware that the pre-req of putting a d-bag in their place was to make sure you are driving a vehicle with a higher NADA book value.

Sure what he said was stupid but what you said was stupid as well. 2 wrongs don't make a right.

You can't really bag on a guy that has a nicer car regardless of how spec'd out it is. Most purists will say a BMW is a BMW no matter what options it has.

different strokes for different folks. You still didn't need to sink to his level.

The stock compression on the 4V 4.6 is too high to run big boost. On top of that, the suspension sucks and needs a lot of work to be decent. And it's still a land boat

Mazda MX-6
Here's a car that came out riding on the success of the RX-7. I believe it was the first car built together with Ford as it rode on a Ford Probe chassis. However, everything about it was better than the Probe especially its far superior interior and optional 200hp KLZE engine (had to import these, but a easy swap). Still looks great on the road and dirt cheap compared to most other used Japanese sports cars.
