I've been meaning to get Full Spectrum Warrior for the xbox, I hear it's great but haven't tried it myself.

NFS Underground is crap, but looks pretty.
Unreal 2 is alright I guess.

FarCry is meant to be the dogs gonads.

I'd get FarCry, infact I am! Tommorow!

Underground was actually one of the better racers i've played on PC. Doesnt hold the candle to PGR2 on xbox though. Far Cry was OK, but aside from the graphics..it was just meh. c'mon ppl recomend more games!

Try Chronicles of Riddick for XBOX, it is really fun IMO. My favorite thing to do, is to grab the guards gun, and force him to shoot himself in the face. It is really gritty and mature though. Probably the one game I wouldn't let my little brother play. LOL it was more graphic than the movie, and a lot better too. Seriously, it is worth a shot. I like it better than Far Cry.

Does the speedo go up to 180mph? I know M5 speedo goes up to 180mph not sure about M3 though.

M-cars are seriously nice machines.
I'd love an Audi RS6 though.
Big, quick, and comfortable.

No better way to travel at 200mph.
Audi GMBH has had a stock RS6 doing 216mph on a test track!

How cool is that, apart from they said you can actually watch the fuel gauge go down in real time.

I have most of the gumball vids they are funny.
A F360 my bosses sons got one of those I had a quick drive of it, he's also got a brand new Bentley Arnage and a 911 Turbo.

The 911 is amazingly quick it just keeps gripping.
