"belittling all 2.8 owners for the percieved actions of a few is equally rude."
I didn't belittle ALL 2.8 owners, that is why I said they were the exception not the rule. During the time frame this occured I'm not sure 2.3s were even available yet so they had to be 2.8s as they weren't Ms.
"1.9s are often under attack"
Yes, they are and for no good reason. They are fantastic cars with decent straight line speed and fantastic cornering and braking. Just like traditional sports cars.
You haven't on the receiving end of:
saying 'Nice Car' to a fellow Z3er and gotten the response back of:
'Bet you wished your bought a six.'
It just gets old after awhile. Sorry if I was venting.
"There will ALWAYS be someone who is faster than you"
That is the first rule of racing which I've mentioned many times here.
" the only thing that counts is if you got what you wanted, for youself."
"who was very happy to have Shawn's magic 1.9 join the 2.8 Shag armada on the ride home from HC99"
And we had a blast being there... don't recall the 'snail' holding anyone back either. ;)
Now if the roads would just clear up and the sun would come out we could forget about all this and go on a DRIVE!
