A poser among you!

I will admit and bare my soul that I am a Crossfire owner and am here to learn.

Please be gentle? At least I'm honest.

I don't think you're a poser unless you put MB and AMG badges on it...

Welcome from Canada.

No worries about being a poser. I'm sure there are some members that don't even own a car

Dear Sir,

I'm a pretty senior member on the crossfireforum.org and I chastise daily for unresearched queries. Drives me nuts!
I taught my chidren not to enter a room and scream questions and I have a problem with adults that do this same thing.

I'm researching what brake caliper upgrades I can do on my N/A Crossy, and will read for days before I ask any questions.

And Thanks for the welcome!

My best friend's wife drives a Z4. I can barely fit in it, but on my few short drives I was unimpressed with the power and feel of it.

Right now, Crossfires are #1 bang for the buck. Find one with low miles and a warranty then buy the MaxCare from Chrysler (7/70 ~ $1400) B-to-B.

I prefer Blaze Red Roadsters!

please notice it says IF YOU HAVEN'T. Not that you didn't. And we don't know your experience, unless you inform us as you did. And I welcome all new members with the same blurb, to search, and place and contribute $. Take care.

Not sure if that all works in the UK and cost is a major factor, but she likes them.
