damn Al ... 14.86 ... you've been practising eh. I still can't drive for shizz.

About the trip, I was thinking of taking Dundas from 403 to bronte rd to miss the rush hour traffic in oakville area. Probably save 30 mins. I'd like to get there early too.

i'm storing the car until spring in hopes of getting more $...

As for Oct 11, i'll be there if the weather cooperates.

e46_lover E36/7 is the chassis code for the Z series BMW line-up. I just include the ///M to denote the model. Therefore ///M E36/7 = ///MZ3 or ///M Roadster. Hope that helps.

the 14.86 i have no idea but that night the car was flying i got it two times around the same time. but it was cool outside 12 degrees only. plus i was racing this guy who works with me in his jetta 1.8T chipped. the sound of that car is sweet. he was right beside me all the way. he might have even won if he new how to launch better.

and about the trip i was even thinking going on the 407 but i don't know how many people would be even willing to pay the extra few bucks to get there faster. i now there is now an exit from the 407 on the 403 where the QEW and the 403 splid but i'm not sure if the 407 also exits on the QEW after the qew and 403 split hope u know what i mean hehehe

I got a chuckle out of this thread, as on Saturday I just test drove the RSX and then the RSX typeS. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about and find out, having seen how fast the older type R's were on the track. Two very different machines.

The RSX is a bore, nothing special at all, nicely finished but okay looks, again a little closer to average. Then I took out the type S, leaving Sherway Acura, up the West Mall to Bloor, onto the 427 south and off at Cawthra and back. Now this car had had it's first oil change so I was okay to get up to the 8,000 redline.

On the side streets, shifting before 6,000 this car is no different than the regular RSX, then stay in it above 6000rpm and wow, this thing total changes character. Pulls very strong. Once you get past the hesitation of not shifting too early this is a very nice package. The stiffer springs and shocks work very nice and provide a very nice ride as your speed increases. On the 427 south, I shifted from 4th to 5th at 180kmph, before traffic and the fear of a cop had me slow down. Don't forget this car still had 2 gears left, and I have no doubt the top speed of 150miles is bang on. Price on this car $31K, which makes it a pretty solid car to start with. Combined with the aftermarket on this car. Will make for some very fast track cars. And having been on the track with a Mugan massaged RSX Type S at Fabi and Nelson, very little could keep up.

Would I buy one. I doubt it, mostly because I love Rear wheel drive, but this would be a nice Front driver if I wanted to go that route again.
Cheers

RSX?

You know... I was reading this thread and I was thinking to myself.... how can you compare a car that is made from recycled PEPSI cans (RSX and all hondas/acuras) to a vehicle that is designed for safety, luxury, sport handling, and power... how can you compare the two?

Who really cares how fast the RSX is...... let see that RSX get into a collision at 120km/h vs. any BMW... ya.... see you at the RSX drivers funeral!

A little story to back up my mouth.... a friend of mine had purchased the new 745i and was pulling out of a plaza @ Jane and #7.... he was on the phone and him and the passenger were yapping.... a MAC truck came as he pulled out, because he was not watching, and smacked into him @ a police and driver proven 95/100 km/h.... my friend woke up in the ambulance and asked the medic what had happened.... the medic was freaking out, as he did not know how my freind came out with only a small bump on his forhead from the accident and the passenger only had a cut/gash on his arm from the broken glass.... the medic said that the car was about the same size as a civic hatch back....


In short... you get what you pay for!


Mike.
