my mate used to drive an excel holy shit that thing was a tup of crap

it only had 3 gears i think, or was it four? but two of the gears didn't work properly and he had to skip them haha....his was 'fooly sick mate' with kit/rims/exhuast/custom interior/stereo worth more than the car etc etc we all know the type glad he got rid of that car it was so shit

and no i dun care if someone gave me an excel to drive for free or i had to save up and buy a 320 for $60k i still wouldn't touch it, no matter what petrol made it slower or faster or whatever

no no no no no, you and dave can stay... but anyone that doesn't have anything to contribute, or is just here to tell us they think they know all, can leave

LOL wtf? 3 gears? how the hell is that even possible! even my crappy old spare car has 5... but mine is red, so it goes faster!

nice to see you would rather a 320 then an excel... a very wise choice!

LOL I wish I'd never mentioned that I couldn't keep up with an Excel now. Maybe I should have said 116i ;-)

As for later comments, yep, I regretted spending over $60k on something that has 110Kw but felt like it had about 80. Rather than loosing yet more doh on selling it for something with a bit more poke, I got desparate and started looking at chipping and petrol octane became apparent as being a big factor after I was forced to put 95 octane in it, causing it to be a slug. After thinking about that I slapped myself and decided it is like flogging a dead horse and so it's up for sale :-)

Alternatively I could put rocket fuel in it :-)

wow, you must be stupid... i don't buy cars because of what i will be able to sell them for, i buy em cos i like em... if i sell it for $2 later, i don't care, as long as i really had fun with, and loved the car...

and you of all people shouldn't be talking about not being very smart
