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.

...I didn't buy one new, what was it...uh 12 years ago?. Bought a 911 instead. Although I am a seasoned fan of BMW, thought the styling of E30 M3 was sort of cheesy as compared to the M5. Oh well, I guess it was just BMW marketing for boy racers.
