I beleive he has the N55 in his 335 wich is an inline 6 with one turbo, thus the reason I am talking about 1 downpipe only and not 2.

I'm not a douche actually, and I dislike that you think that as I am in no way attacking you are whatever, simply discussing cars. And if there was any confusion, then I am sorry for that.

To me, I simply thought an exhaust meant simply the catback as it is what I usually hear. I never heard a downpipe was principaly a downpipe.

But it is all good, and sorry for all the confusion.

i am unsure about the newer 335i's they now have a twin clutch auto like ours so with the extra power they will likely win.
Hmmm... Fool must not know how to drive. I killed many cars with my 335, even when it was stock.

yep...

the lack of knowledge about other cars, and no consideration for shitty drivers or guys "not trying" in their cars worth 2x as much as ours, is just too funny in this sub-forum. A stage II GTI can beat anything, mang!!! LOL.. good grief, it just gets ridiculous in here.

I don't see how more expensive = faster.

I wouldn't be surprised if you had your "PNR=past notable rides" list on your door, so you don't feel ashamed being seen in a cheap ass GTI.

Sorry had to say it

hp and torque is objective - something you can't dispute with regard to fact.

"breathing better" is subjective, something you can't necessarily prove to someone else unless its also supported by facts, such as increased hp and tq, to which we know is a fairly minimal increase on stage 2 compared to stage 1 tune and intake upgrade.

Use logic in your arguments, it goes a long way.

As for expense - i didn't mean in relation to performance, I meant in relation to guys with $40K+ cars who do not want to A. wreck their car racing you, or B. get a speeding ticket while racing you. Many of those guys (at least in the US) don't necessarily "street race" and if they do, it lasts about 2 seconds. Most vette owners here don't even drive AT the fucking speed limit, lol.

Damn you are fast.

Well it's probably different in the US then, everyone who is into cars would race you here, no matter what car they drive, i had a guy in a recent style M3 try to race me before lol, but he probably didn't know much about cars, i am sure.

I wouldn't run anyone unless the give a sign or something and if someone is toying you it should be pretty obvious!

Haha, yeah man, that's hysterical.... Wow. Nice edit, lolz yourself..

I'm not ashamed at all of the GTI, but I am aware of this thing called 'reality'. As for the past rides, I love cars and I love talking about them and giving advice on purchasing, etc. Every car has pros and cons, its not just about speed and it says something that I'm back in a GTI and love it actually, when I could be in other 'more expensive' or 'faster' cars.

I tried to imagine it and i though it would be amusing haha

honetsly, i don't think i would be pleased with a GTI after driving these cars, specially, i am sure you didn't keep them stock, but everyone have their reasons.

heck i think i will be very picky choosing my next car after being spoiled by a tuned GTI.

Yep, I'm almost 31, two young kids, 40+ mile commute every day, and I try to hit the road course a handful of times a year, so for me, the GTI does it all and does a great job at it.

That makes sense, i hope my future wife will help me enjoy my hobby and let me go through some nice cars.



Now all you need is stage 2 tune and you have yourself a rocket hatchback.

Haha, we'll see! I don't want it much louder than it is right now. And yeah, the wife is typically pretty cool, which will help when I go shopping for an Elise, S2K, SLK55 AMG, or Cayman S in a few years

Easy:
Most likely the most reliable of the group
Cheap
Handles well

But most likely it will be the Elise, which has a Toyota engine.
