I think the classic "911" badge looks clean:

I should've been less cynical. I hate it more on cars like BMWs and Teslas which don't have cluttered logos. I'll give the Porsche guys a pass in retrospect smile.gif - especially because it's a factory option and not a dental floss option.

All the Europeans offer it as a factory option.

So how much was this used camshaft you have been told you can put in using the current bearings, lifters, valves without opening the engine? - valvetrain components wear together. Do it right. Or eff up your engine.
Apexi,HKS,Greddy,Haltech. All have an ecu solution for you. With the jdm companies having offices stateside. (Except Apexi, but meh. Good products)

 

Why the preference for a piggyback vs a standalone? Or are all of those stand alones as well. Honestly, all everyone talks about in US miata forums is the megasquirt, which can be had for about 800 or so new.

Did not know that. BMW did not for any Euro Delivery, but they were US spec cars. Again, I shouldn't have been cynical across the board. But if you badge delete a Tesla 70D or a 328i - it's pretty obvious what the car is. Please delete the brand stuff as well.

When I'm driving behind a badge delete 328i or something that still has the manufacturer's logos on, I find it really pathetic.

Porsche does tend to clutter things up, but offer a factory option. I think they're the only ones in the US outside of the other super car companies.

My cynical nature is why I couldn't be the primary host of our show. I'd basically pitch BMW M cars, Teslas, and McLarens (maybe a Porsche here and there) until I was insufferable and was fired tongue.gif.

Its illegal to fully de-badge cars here, as parking warden need to be able to tell what car it is.

i don't see the issue whatsoever with debadged vehicles. putting fake badges on, however, is a special kind of stupid.

Broke off the car's Lightning connector and it got stuck in my phone. Second time in a month of owning the car. I guess it's a penalty for having this thing. I wasn't even racing anything but kinda punched it. It's not a badly designed holder either.

Tweezers got the piece out of the lightning port. Guessing Tesla will do another 'courtesy service' and give me a free lunch.

That post is just going to be HRoi or GF fodder. Lucky Edmorel doesn't read this thread.

With the 8 version of their software, I think the Tesla S ludy cars would kill the M4 on a track. Super impressive as a 2200kg family sedan. And the M4 is a somewhat quick thing. I've been amazed for the past week plus.

Not sure how the handling and brake cooling compare in the cars. I haven't heard much about teslas other than straight line and the fact that they handle well for how heavy they are.

Ed was just over in the dinner thread telling us about figging with ginger root.

There's not much to hide the weight. However it's nuts fast and fun even in turns. It's incredibly neutral / doesn't understeer and probably has the best traction control I've ever seen. Not nearly as theatrical as the fancy RWD cars, but amazing fun. v8.x is a total game changer.

Also, I don't have a ton of money. Just work hard and spend it on the things I care about.
