In Reply to: FIXIT DAY? posted by alex on February 11, 2000 at 23:07:31:
I drive 96 Z3 with 1.9l and haven't beaten ANYONE yet! Haven't tried either. I work for Ford Motor Co. love their cars (own two) but also fell in love with the looks of my BMW Z3. I mean it's turqouise..how can that be raced??.Seriously I'm here for the great info, help and FRIENDLY banter on the cars we LOVE. Some controversy is welcome BUT we all need to know when it's going a little to far. Yours is not the only case were it may have gone to far. Your welcome here as far as I'm concerned and only wish I got to meet you at the Fixit day in PA. I was there and it was a great day because of the people.
: I was at your "fixit" day whatever that means. I was not on the list or in your club, the man who deals with the Dinan Upgrades at Daniels knows how much i love cars and sugested that i stop by and see what was going on. I came later in the day remember one guy had a silver m raodster with hard top, air intake, and new stereo. Anyway my brother mentioned he wanted to bring his s2000 along for the next z3 ride in ny, he will be happy to let any of you take it out for a spin. People we all have something in common in that we understand the fun in driving a roadster. My future liscense plate will be "SUV SUX" although my father will probably run me over when his ML55 finanly gets delivered (problem in painting). Opinions have been expressed that have been personal in nature and that is becuase the 1.9 was personally very disapointing to me. I only fully realized how much so after i had the chance to drive an M roadster at the meadowlands event, and after purchasing my new 6 cylinder Z3. Maybe I would have put up such a fight in defense when i had my 1.9. I just thought that this board cause use more car talk. I come hear looking for more than "leather armrests" and "what size tires should i buy?". If this is to be a true car forum i think we should discuss cars, their strengths and their weeknesses. It upsets when i see posts about 1.9 drivers claiming they beat an M roadtser, or a corvette in the infamous "twisties". That is the reak flame posts. Its also sad that someone like myself who has access to both s2000 and z3 can not make an honest evaluation of the two without being labelled a "rice-boy" by a lady who doesnt even own a z3 yet! I posted my pics because the claims that i have a honda civic where too much to handle, i wil try better in the past to link them to one page. Hope we can put our egos aside and misinformed opinions about cars we have never driven aside. If all you know is armrests thats cool, just dont argue performance and use "becuase" as your basis thank you....
