Damn that was my guess but I wasn't sure if the supercharger was a M62.

Great, Pinky influenced him. Pinky sold the SSEi for a BMW remember? Now Petey sees and Petey does. MIni Cooper is owned by BMW (see the similarities yet?) and Petey has a SSEi (see it yet?) Hmmm....

Like I told Pinky, whatever you want to do, do it.

Oh, yes, indeed...
They're also just about the safest car around. In spite of their small size, they are every bit as strong as the H-body, if not stronger.

I might be getting it sooner, I just had the bearings crap out in my */c, so it'* a brick. AND I don't have credit now because my parents didn't sell the truck like they said the did, so idk. I'm really pissed right now. Someone cheer me up
