If you breakdown without a cell phone, or where there is no service you can walk to the nearest call box to get help. Alot of roads in California out in the desert where there is no cell phone service has these.

I'm going to be down there tomorrow for work... in El Cajon. Not sure if I can meet up depending if I am with my boss or not.

I easily kept up with the m3 and NSX, my car is dead even to the m3 in a run 60-90. Then I start to take off 90+. AND I'm sure I'd take it in a launch. Twisties the m3 probably has an advantage but I kept up easily, we were going fast but not insane on the twisties. My ESP definitely kicked off once or twice.

During the run the NSX and e46 M3 took turns leading the group. I showed up late and stayed behind, they had both been on the mountain before. I never lost sight of them through the turns. The NSX has 290hp, and the guy driving the m3 said he easily pulled on it. So I'm sure I would too

Don't Cali cars need a front plate?

those cars probably took it easy on you man. the guy in the M3 probably was just toying with you and his tires might have been bald. you could probably take him in a launch but at 60+mph he would pull away.
dude those M346 look so much more badas s than the current ones stock for stock. oh btw that guys tire must have looked like this:

damn hatin... just playing haha. yeah i find it a little hard to believe that an m3 couldnt pull on an a4 without serious handling modifications in the turns those cars are just so damn balanced with there wide body ishness, tires wheels ect.

Fuckin EH! Wish we had em up here... If we drive in the Canadian Desert here ( Merritt - Oliver etc Hwy 97) its no mans land. If your car catches on fire then grab your shit walk back bout 300 ft and watch er burn!

Well we never went past 90 on the canyon itself. That was no issue keeping up.

But over 90mph+ I take him with my gtrs setup.

As for cornering mods, I have hankook ventus v12s. The bmw was running PS2s which were bald in the back. I have H&R S4 Coilovers, hotchki's front and rear sway bars, perrin front sway bar end links, upgraded rear metal end links, purems front strut bar.

^^^^^^

nice dude sounds like your car handles niiiicee. just curious im running the same tires. What size are you running and what psi have u found to work the best for handling/tire wear? I have 36 front and 39 rear right now but thats because i have the stock rear sway bar. Im running 235/40/18 and just felt like running anything lower than that and you kinda feel like the sidewall is sort of weak...

I was gonna call Bs, but you seem to have a well sorted out car. How much WHP are u putting down 2 be pulling on M3's? A few friends through the years have had em, both in SMG and 6spd and a basic OTS GTRS tune from someone short of uni or eurodyne isn't gonna keep up with the M3 after 60. Those cars love high speed.

Great pics! However, I will have to call BS on everything just because of this one pic. Unless the NSX driver has arms that are longer than his legs there is no way he could pull off a passenger mirror shot. With a passenger in the nsx and being able to still hang with m3's and big turbo A4s just imagine what the guy could do without him. I'm thinking the ranking is NSX > A4 > M3.

Besides, if you look at the m3 driver. Well... you decide

At least the other two look cool
