I only buy a car about once every 12 years. First one was a 1985 Mustang SVO in 1987 with 14k miles on it. It was a baller car at the time for a 20yo GI, and started my love affair with turbos. A few years later I rode in a friend's Talon TSi AWD and I knew I needed that kind of traction so I bought a 1991 Galant VR4 in 1999. Drove that almost until I bought the 335xi this year.

First one was about 2.5 seconds faster in the 1/4 from when I started until I was done with it. Second one was 3.5 seconds faster. I'm going to have my work cut out for me on this one :-). Just set the benchmark last Saturday with a stock 13.9@98 at high elevation.

In essence, I had to push a small lever located next to the transmission forward, and the rpm range would change for the second set of gears. It raised rpms, got the turbo on boil, which allowed quicker acceleration. That car was a blast! It had a sticker on the rear hatch window that said: Don't step on the gas unless you really mean it. Priceless!
Hey everyone - new to the forum...

Ben, my first car was a ............1984 Dodge Colt Turbo, and in fact, I have located one in very good condition that I am in the process of buying from a young guy out there. Really excited about it.
