So did you actually make a post quoting me, adjust the quote, then delete it, now act like I'm making it up, or is another mod ****ing with your posts?
Are we banned?

If you are going to make up quotes by me at least make it sound like something I'd say.

Until you see it after my dog rides in the car.

Re: Looking at a 97 E36, thoughts...?

Its expensive, but if its a car thats something you'd want to build, you will literally save 25-30k over building it yourself.
If its not what you'd want to build, its not worth it. Its a very...

Re: LTW/GT front splitter users. A question about the under tray.

Buying something from a company with a reputation for mediocre communication combined with cross border shipping is a pain. Either way, its not relevant to what this thread is about at this point.

It might have something to do with the correlation between higher income levels, higher priced cars, and higher education.

The big deal is that the tax cut allowed a massive corporate buy back.
As usual, tax cuts did NOT help the average american.
