If it's the M5, yes. Standard 5 series, may be not. Not for 60 L.. Buy the Cayman S or 911 stock for that.

You say things like "thats a secret" and you say there are less car enthusiasts? If you really are one then you should share what you know as long as you are not harming anyone.

Besides, you still haven't told us which cars you have "experienced yourself" that are here after bypassing the law. Asking people to visit some state is not really practical you know .

Saif, I presume it was, tearing up and down Reclamation today, a couple of hours ago in his GT500. That thing sounds brilliant. Could hear it all the way to my balcony!!

Great choice. The upgrade from a GT to a GTX1 is the price of a new Shelby GT500 ~ $50k.

Well If I were Saif, I would've put my money on a Roush rather than the Shelby GT500...At least Roush did the suspension and brakes...The Shelby still has the live axel, and at that power bump over stock I would say it's a health risk!

Exactly! My first question was how much does Roush cost? Anyways, great looking car. It doesnt matter as Shelby GT500 is also too much for the streets of Mumbai, leave alone Roush!

Roush packages are like a 25k premium on the Mustang's price.

cost is obviously not a factor here...He probably was not aware of Roush. by the way, the Roush mustang is less powerful than the Shelby...The Shelby has a larger blower. So the Roush looses in a straight line. But they've done the suspension and the brakes, which means the car can turn.

My uncle has a white Mustang GTin Cali, it's his weekend car. The power in a straight line is great, just don't try to turn it!!!

NOTE: In the last pic, the Mustang, F-350, and Honda Odyssey belong to my uncle, The Galant is my Brother's [It pushes a little over 250hp at wheels] [Oh and my house is in Pic 2]

Sweet Mustang DocG. All it needs is some racing stripes. They look damn good on a white car. Blue ones perhaps?

yeah, they might probably give you an estimate of 10L for an oil service.

Well the whole point of the car in white was to have it understated...Racing stripes don't really help a car look sedate
In fact those 19" American Racing [I think] were slapped on there by my brother who borrows this car quite often. Though the rims on my bro's Bishi are killer 19" AR...
I have a pic of my unc's mini somewhere on my comp, will hunt for that, also we got a 330 there, but it was bought after I left, so don't have any pics of that, will get more this summer hopefully. there are plans of adding a vert to the stable...

yes that's an El Camino, belongs to my neighbour...it's a project car, and he's sticking a Chevy LS2 in it...it should push some serious power after that!
