I have owned an integraand two predlude si's. Then i saw the light and purchased an e30 318is, and now an e30 m3, and each time i got a car that was a little better than the previous, until the m3. My 2.5l is a giant leap over the 318 m42 motor, but only a little better handling. Its amazing how 15 year old design still can hold its own or beat anything under $30k for 2000 model year. I have not attended any legal drags and i really refuse (impounded car and $1000+ in fines = no thank you)to stoplight race so i cannot account for any rice boy drool on my car or motor but i am sure one trip to Sac. Raceway for some fun runs in the 1/4 mi. will solve that.

Just wondering if any of you are acquianted with any rice-boys. There is a guy that live next door to me, nice guy, owns a Civic hatchback, slightly riced. He was looking under the hood of my M3 and commented, "Man, that's a big engine." But he then proceeded to tell me I should remove the airbox and put in a "hi-flow" system. I guess they're used to small, peaky HP engines that need all the help they can get.

My brother was reading a "Sport Compact Car" magazine. He said that all these new ricers still compare their performance to the original M3!! 12 years old, and they still use it as their benchmark.
