Driving in to work this am, I had a silver BMW 335 pull up next to me, but it looked different. It was brand new, it had a rear lip kit and a diffuser sorta in the middle and a different front end. Looked closer and it was a 335is. Is that new deal for 2011 or something? Looked great except wheels looked small and plain. Maybe I am used to seeing Beemers car...

So 4.6L V8 used S197 or new 3.7 V6. Brian is not allowed to answer because I know he will say neither.

I like when they are driving the mini coopers through the tunnels and then ramp them out into the water way!

I'll be unable to attend as it's "stand around in a heated building for two hours and have dinner" to get awards for "standing around outside all day, and racing for 6 minutes" DMVR SCCA banquet.

Well, then I'd get the new V6, but thats just me. With a supercharger, it will be sweet. I just hate the older mustangs. There is a 4.6 V8 supercharged at some local dealer here if you look in the sunday paper -low miles. Claims to have 8k in upgrades. May have been toyota.

Read up on the allotment of them - its going to be very difficult to get one for retail. Apparently, Laguna Spec is about 48K, but given lack of availability, they will be going for mid 50's thanks to dealer shennanigans. I havent used the word shennanigans in a while... lol

Brian you used to drive a Pontiac, it does not get any more mullet then that.

Nice EVO X GSR, if I still had my LGT this would have been a nice ride.

I dig the new Leguna Stangs. KC saw the supercharge GT at Toyota of DM
http://toyotadm.com/Des-Moines-Iowa/...k-Car/4262459/

Not sure I would step into a modded car without knowing the history, who knows what you are walking into. It would be fun to test drive though. I have hopped off the Mustang wagon for now. Tried to trade of my C5 for a C6 yesterday at Willis. But after they appraised my car and it was 4k less then I felt it should be (because I knew they would low ball) hid did try to bargain or ask what I wanted the difference to be just gave me my keys and essentially walked away.
