OK here's the deal I know my bimmers are superior in many ways to my friends collection of civic hybrids, but will my m3 be able to beat them in the quarter mile when it is finished? I know I could get him on the freeway,or track, because my 635 can keep up with him above about 100. Well these civics run in the high 13's, are there any e30's running in the low 14's or 13's here? Heard of any better?

P.S. don't give me the bimmer isn't a drag car schpeel, I know some of you have had to go to the strip at one time or another!

I used to be into it but it got boring. And the thing is...something like a gutted 68 VW BUG w/turbo porsche engine and wheelie bar can run 8'-9's and blow your doors off and that guy probably didn't have to spend as much money. Hell, he could replace the whole car for $500.
