Damn, I liked everything they did to the M3 except for those ridiculous decals they always slap on the cars, I can't stand them. If I was the owner, I'd take them off once I drive it back home :D

My friend's uncle was on that show...when they did the Escalade, they used Kaption speakers, and he's the owner of Kaption.

Car was done well (except those ugly decals)

Made me want to take a drive after watching the show...

Has anyone spotted that red M3 with the nice looking wheels? What size wheels were they, 18's?

It was awsome when she actually knew what an x-brace was and she was so excited about the racing suspension and exhaust and, the best part was when they told her they chipped the engine.....that's my type of woman........She wanted the car for the track*th-up*


King Luis: I looked up the site and there's no pictures for that show yet.....

the car was a 95 M3 john not an obd2 setup, so the chip probably did in fact make a significant difference. I watched the whole article.

Mods: from what I recall

Turner chip
Turner intake (conforti)
underdrive pulleys
Remus exhaust

Bilstein suspension with H&R race springs
x-brace
turner rear correction arms
RD strut brace
18 inch OZ wheels
Goodyear Eagle F1 tires

Ellipsoids
clears
Paint and stickers

I think that was it but anyone correct me if Im wrong

Wow, that actually was a good build. I usually can't force myself to watch more than 30 seconds of that bullshit. I remember the guy with the Spec-V, he looked so disappointed when he saw the riced-out kit they slapped on. He was tyring to hide it but it still showed. :D

KVR shows how they suck and bunch of ricers at work...

"OOOOh this is not 12.2, 12.5 or 12.7, these are 13 inches..."

Whoooop deeee fackin doooo, if they are 13 and not 12.22222 its not like it will really matter on a god damn auto m3. They sell make facking garbage, their phython calipers are garbage knock off's aswell... They might as well put some "Made In China" stickers on their products to make sure the customer understands the quality of their product line. Lets not forget drilling the blank rotors, yes they drill the blank rotors and sell them as cross drilled to the ricers in town, (my friend used to work for KVR thats how I know)

No, the best one was the first episode with teh RX-8, where the guy looked into the trunk expecting some crazy sound system and said "n-n-nitros...... greaaat.." now THAT was dissapointment.

I'm not dissing the race here, don't get me wrong. Its just the products made over there tend to lack quality :P

BTW, July 7-8-9-10-11 I'm gonna be in Toronto. :D
