Into speed and fast bikes so do we all have fast cars or do we save it for 2 wheels?

I drive a 2002 BMW M5, it comes out the factory with 400bhp and tops 180 mph once the limiter, set at 155 in the factory, is removed.




They were designed and built in germany and tested at the Nurburg ring and said to lap in under 9 minutes.




So what have you all??? Supercar or Supershopping car. Winker

My bruv and I came up behind one of those down in Devon last year, He was on his 10r and me on my 9. All I can say is F*$K can they shift!!! We were all doing naughty speeds before we overtook him. I was MEGA surprised at how bloody quick he took off when he decided to play. :prayer:

If he'd had just a second more I'm not sure we'd have got anywhere near him. Embarassed








We did tho...... :goodman:

Bugger me he was fast, but I bet we surprised him as much as he did us, remember the look on his face as I went past, it was like 'how the hell can he do that to me'...........it's a 10R...

DAZK, the other mad thing is that the E39 M5 is capable of over 175mph with the limiters took off. HELLRAIZING... Vomit

I've got a Renault Laguna estate for my sins. It's not actually a bad car to drive and you can get a lot of stuff in it, I fetched a 7'6" wide roller shutter door back from Essex in it the other week.

SWMBO has the the fun car, an MX-5.

I'm about to start restoring my 1978 VX490 (the 2.3 5 speed one) and after that I have a 1972 Scimitar GTE to sort out, and gazillion other projects in between.

Got a 52 plate Passat and a V reg Clio for the missus. I'm a piso get at the best of times and always try to get my fuel average up. Breaks my heart if I can't do more than 40 MPG on a trip.



Don't bother me when on the 10

This little ozone destroyer is heading your way. Rick Brett picked it up last week. Should be filling your air with the sweet smell of bean oil.
