New car

I think this falls under 'show and tell'. Toys. A couple of years ago I bought a BMW 328xi, all wheel drive with an eager inline 6 cylinder. It was a great car. But the more I learned about the M3 I had to have it. I sold the 328xi and bought this 08 M3. It has a 414 hp V8 with a 8300 rpm red line. A dual clutch transmission that shifts in 1/10th of a second. I won't bore you with the details but this transmission is awesome.

Here's pics and vid.

Added front shot.


Carbon leather interior trim. You can also have wood, aluminum, etc.

Hand control similar to the one in my van.


Car review video.



Transmission animation video. (no sound)

Re: New car

Took the van out to a "dry" lake last week. I was hoping it would fall of but this mud is sticking.

It's off a Super Duty pickup truck. Bought it at the dealer. This 07 van didn't come with a V10 badge at all. I wanted the badge on it. I like the thicker plastic badge, versus the thin vinyl V10 badge on vans.
