    '03 Enthusiast 6 speed. It's a little tight compared to the Grand Prix I traded, but I'll get used to it. Can't wait for the weekend so I can go put some miles on it. :saweet:

    I've been venturing to Z related boards and the top speed in stock form is 157. I want to get used to it a little more and then I'm going to go to the track to see what kind of 1/4 times I can get out of it. It sure is fun to drive, I can tell you that.

    I think it would look better with a blown duel quad 454 sticking out of the hood with drag radials in the rear.

    ;) :D



    But if not, then I think that would make a shnazzy DD in stock form. ;)

    Here is a Z3 fumes
    [​IMG]



    No picknic tables going on this one. :haha:

    Here are some specs I pulled up...

    287hp @ 6200rpm
    274lbs/ft @ 4800
    3197lb curb weight
    157mph top speed in stock form
    5.4 0-60
    14.1 1/4 (some have got a 13.7 out of a stock car)

    I don't consider this thing rice. It's about as close to muscle as Japan can put out. How many Camaro's have you seen riced out? :rolleyes:

    Now I just wish my commute was longer than 15 minutes. I used to love the short drive, but now I wish it more like an hour again. :wink1:

    Nice. What is the 'Enthusiast' package? Is that the lighter version?

    Just to be lazy I copy and pasted to explain the different packages. Sorry if it's too much tech for the lounge. :rolleyes:

    Base: 3.5L V6 with 287hp/274 ft-lbs of tq., 17" rims. Only available in 6-speed MT.

    Enthusiast: Added Cruise Control, HID headlights, Aluminum pedals, Auto-dimming rearview mirror, VLSD, and TCS. Available in either 6-speed MTo r 5-speed AT.

    Performance: Adds VDC , 18" rims (18"x8" all around). Only available with 6-speed MT.

    Touring: Adds Leather seats w/ power adjustability, Bose sound system, and optional DVD Navigation. Available in either 6-speed MT or 5-speed AT.

    Track: Adds 18" Rays Track Rims (18"x8" front, 18"x8.5" rear, approx. 18.3 lbs per rim), Brembo Big Brake Kit, underbody aero kit w/ rear hatch spoiler. Only available in 6-speed MT.

    Oh, and they all weigh in around 3200 lbs.

    So far I LOVE this car other than I'm having some comfort issues with the seat. One I think I can fix pretty easily, the other I'm afraid I'm going to have to get use to. It's worth it though, this thing is SOOO much fun!
