Thank you for the compliments on the collection. It's a labor of love!

I haven't tracked any of my cars yet. I stick to autocrosses. Mess up at an autocross and you hit a cone. Mess up at a track and you hit a wall.

Thank you for the compliments! I do need to use the e55 more. It's the only fun car where if a group of friends want a test ride, I can take them all at once.

When I first got my Boxster and my aunt and cousins wanted a ride, it took me almost 2 hours to give them rides one-by-one. I didn't realize this disadvantage of 2 seater cars. I'm glad my whole extended family didn't want a ride or I would still be driving them around right now.

Hi Samir,

You are really great. Your photographs are beautiful. Nice feast for the eyes. Really your entry to the forum fills up the gap with many colours.

You've got some killer cars! Love the RS6 and the BMW. A buddy of mine from Germany has an ARS exhaust on his coupe and it's sick.
Bah, I missed your previous reply completely!
There are tons of GT3RSs out in ATL, so it's hard to keep track of who's driving what and with the paint to sample option on the '09 RS, spotting a real one has gotten more difficult.

Thanks for the compliments! My RS6 is tuned by ABT, the German tuning house - 505hp at the crank. The Bimmer has a Vishnu ECU - 340hp at the wheels. Pics of my rides are on my garage page.

Be sure to drop a line whenever you're in ATL. I know some nice Boxster owners who would be glad to help you out with tuning the car.

Thank you Navan. It's great to be here. Team BHP fills a big gap for me too. I've always wanted to be a part of the scene in the motherland, and now I can be.

Yeah, now that the real gt3rs's are here, the previous imports just blend in.

I noticed. The RS6 is a BEAST.

Will do. A friend of mine lives there and we may do something together for the holidays.
