Prime example of ignorance, I have both import and American sports cars and like different aspects of each. You should broaden your knowledge young grasshopper.
I drive a 07 Honda Accord V6 Coupe 6 speed and a 2002 Trans Am WS6. Not too much broader than that. Souping up an economy car is retarded.

That's funny you drive a Trans Am. I took one of those down the other day in my '10 BMW 135i. The look on the guys face after getting a beat down from a STOCK I6 with twins was priceless. It's possible it was the look of ignorance though...

Properly driven, the LS1 TA(98-02) can run 13.0 in stock trim. What does the BMW run in the 1/4?

The best I've seen in person was a [email protected] 106 with a DA of 255 in a stock auto. Buuuuut for about 1500 and you have over 450hp 450tq. More than enough to spank most of what you run into on the street.

That's funny because I'm actually getting ready to trade the Accord for a 135i.

Most stock T/A's are quicker but that little Beemer rips pretty good. I'm running 12.5's with just a tune, air intake and exhaust.

You're gunna LOVE the 135i. I had a 335 coupe and the 135 handles so much better. It's like a go cart on rails. It's crisp and does exactly what you want it to do. Floor it and hang on cuz it'll get to 60 in a heartbeat. Push it further and you'll soon be at the 155mph (130 conv) limiter before you know it. Not that I have ever been there :hey:

Last month we went looking at the 335i and I loved it, but the wife thought it was a bit big feeling. The salesman got us to try the 135i with the M Sport package. I was in awe with the little car. I was a little leary on the 1 series at first because of it being the entry level car, but damn. I think it's more driver oriented than the 3. It's like they have the 3 series built for fatter people like what Honda did to the Accord.

Honestly you'll never feel the size difference unless you're a passenger in the back. It is VERY cramped. The feel up front is exactly the same as a 3 series. Unless you have had a 3, the look inside is the same. I notice a few subtle changes from the 3 in order to get costs down. But it is a little rocket car:)
