Acura CL-S, modified/blown
BMW E46 M3
M-B CLK55 AMG
Found out the Acura tranny can't tolerate much power. SCRATCH ONE.
Just saw the price of M-B -- 67.5k! The added 18.5k for more power insults my sensibilities. SCRATCH ANOTHER.
I had decided to get the smg, but it won't be available in U.S. this year, or who knows when. Only the 6 sp. will come in for the 1st year according to dlr.
SOLUTION: Tomorrow, or Wed., I will order TWO, one of each. When/if the smg arrives next year I'll trade or keep what I have.
