Unmolested '92 except for exhaust, 300 factory hp. '80 work in progress, a little over 400 cammed up hp. Breaks traction way too easily but sure does sound good.

Always liked the looks of the C4 vettes, back when I was shopping around for a fun car looked at 2 for sale but both had auto trans and I wanted manual.

Is yours an N55 or N54? Before the M2, I had an '07 335i with all the mods on an N54. So far, on the M2, I've done the BootMod3 tune, Pure Turbo, Downpipe, & FMIC. It doesn't have as much power as the N54, but the platform as a whole is significantly faster on the track - better suspension, better brakes, better cooling, and better aero.

Does not really fit in with the rest! I enjoy driving this as much as I would a Porsche or something else. My daily driver is a highlander.

Its a 1989 F250 with 7.3 idi turbo diesel. 5 speed manual. Iíve done all the suspension and steering, new interior with a ton of added sound deadening material.

n54
so far the Power seems limitless. I am not going to be able to keep tires on it now. Run out of asphalt in seconds. No sense in going higher

i read the Great things about M2. I like the size and they write that they capture the spirit of the earlier mís

She is a 2013 model with the 444-hp, maybe a few more now . As far as I know there is only 1 other Boss in the OBX and it is black, so I should be easy to spot. The new 2019 Bullitt Mustangs are very sweet! I haven't seen one in person yet though.

Nothing special but its clean and a hell of a lot quieter. The seat is from a junkyard, out of a 96' F150. I did not like the idea of my head contacting the rear glass if I ever got hit from behind. Not pictured I got a bunch of foam up under the dash too and I re-did the seals between the shifter/ 4x4 shifter and the interior. I also fixed the crank windows.. .new speakers... the list goes on and on. Injection pump is out now for a custom rebuild so it can pump more fuel. I replaced the clutch and flywheel as well. In the process of installing a boost gauge and EGT.

That's really awesome! 20 years with the same daily! How many miles on her?

I had a 1998 Camaro V6, T-Tops I loved from 2002-2006
2004 GTO LS1/ 6 Speed from 2006-2016
2001 Corvette for a year (circa 2017)
All were Red!

I'd love to get into a C6 Auto (Grand Sport?) next and hopefully as a forever car.

I drove a wide variety of bimmers especially at the driving school performance center . The M2 is far and away the most fun car I have driven . I got second place out of 30 people on the timed lap in the M2 . What a rocket those cars are . Bad ass ride

My last Porsche; I'm getting too old to drop in and climb out of it anymore, but the hardtop convertible makes it an all-weather fun car.
