I'm always looking for cool car videos online. I don't care whether or not it's an SLK video. I just like to see cars moving fast. That said, I wanted to start a thread where we can post your favorite car videos. Race, rally, street, track, whatever... Let's just get them in one spot for all to admire.
Here's a start:

997 GT3, nice driving skills:


Totally illegal, totally wreckless, but entertaining (since no one was hurt)

Carlsson SLK

Here's one of my favorites. I'm sure some of you have seen this one before. It's a test drive of the BMW 335i coupe. This car is VERY toss-able around the corners. I like the SLKs' exhaust note much more than the 335i though. Enjoy..

The GT3 is a sweet looking car, would love to be able to drift thru every corner like he did on twisty roads, would be extremely fun.

I heard the new 335i can get an additional 40-50hp with just a reflashed, and can be easily modded for alot of hp. So it's a bargain compared to the new M3 which is rumored to be around $70K out the door with options.

Yes thanks to the Turbo the 335i Sports, you can get 50-75 hp with Just an Ecu upgrade, Air Intake System and a Full Exhaust.

But At the End you want the M3 probably for its 8,500 rev limiter, 400hp out of the box and a V8.

Ive driven a couple of Mseries Bimmers and what I liked about them is the top end, Seriously an M6 can outblow many Ferrari's and Lamborghini's Specifically Gallardo at topspeed if the top speed governor is removed.

I dislike the rev engine I feel you need to push it hard so it could go maybe I am used to a 5.4 V8 that has as much or slightly less torque.

I also wonder if the 335i chassis was built to handle all this extra hp and torque from aftermarket upgrades. Remember the chassis/torque issues they had with the first couple of production years of the E46?
