Nice! I am an Acura fan as well - in my student years I drove a 1991 Legend - was a fantastic car (I still see people upgrade them). Mine was 4-door, so not the uber cool coupe pictured below.

My girlfriend's father drove an early-nineties Acura Legend for over ten years! He was in PE and could have purchased any car he wanted, but he loved that car.

GREAT CAR!


How do you like this car? I've been back and forth about getting a 1 series for a while...

Seems like the perfect balance between style, class, and fun!



I'm with you... I LOVE the 1 series. BMW is about to build the "M" version, so if you get one, with until 2013.

Mercedes Benz, C320. Lowered; 19" Foose Staggered Wheels, Black on Black, the works in the inside. Preety much sick, It has california plates on it, so when I move for the MBA program it should stand out even more!

Great car, high maintenance.

97 Jetta GLX VR6. Clean. light bolt-on mods. Nothing ricer retarded or loud. OEM+ is the theme =)

vwvortex addict here so...going to h20 international this year if i can pull off this gmat in time... (for those of you into the euro/vw/audi scene....)

just rebuilt the VR6 engine a year ago. All new chains, guides, tensioner, valves, port&polish, head & block work. Just at 20K on it right now. Drives great.

- H&R Ultra-low coils w/ helper springs
- Auto-tech Magnaflow 2.5" Catback exhaust (not a far can)
- H&R front 15mm and rear 20mm spacers (stanced)
- Vento/Euro-spec OEM lip spoiler (German's get all the good stuff)
- Black Forest Industries badgless grill
- Euro-spec OEM fogs
- Euro-spec OEM clear e-code headlights
- DG short shifter
- Euro switch
- Turn2 intake + K&N cone filter

other stuff can't really think of it right now. just trying to keep it clean & fresh. my favorite generation of vw's out there - best mix of old and new skool.

Planning on getting a set of cams, maybe from either schrick or auto-tech - something with high lift and low duration. probably favoring like 264 or 268 degree for some offset idling characteristics but doesn't affect driveability with good mid and high end RPM bandwidth. I drive like a grandma, shifting right at 3K RPM and babying this car everywhere but who said you gotta drive the hell out of every car you own :-D


here's the ride.

hmm... well after college i drove my sister's ford 95.. then got a honda accord 03 in 05 after getting my first FT job. Its got ~90k miles now and got 2 accidents under the belt - both not my fault though.
1. blame on ambulance - it parked in front of my lot so i had to come back to repark later, got my shoes wet in the rain and slipped while parking and hit a pole... 2k damage
2. driving in the snow.. hit a pothole or something that tore my tire - went a 180 with driver side hitting the guardrail - probably wouldve been a lot worse if there was a car next to me :/ 3k damage...

I would love to get a Mercedes or BMW though... of course the poor man's mercedes (c class)

Right. No way, it wasn't your fault. If no ambulance, if no rain... if no pothole, if not snow...
If you didn't have a car you wouldn't have had any accidents, any repairs to do...
