    Interesting Company

    Good publicity for the GT40 with an interesting set of "peers" (I would not put a GT40 up against a Zonda but whatever) 6 ultra-rare supercars from around the world - Koenigsegg Agera R (1) - CNNMoney I thought some of the comments were hilarious, e.g.: 1) "The GT40 is an amazing car...

    Interesting new car concept from Murry

    Insulation Overkill?

    I am working to make my SPF a little more livable in the summer by cutting down on the heat and a bit of the noise. Yes, I recognize this will add weight, I am okay with that. That said, I am now concerned I may have gone overboard... I have now: - Koolmat - Second Skin Damplifier Pro -...

    Alcantara wrapped steering wheel?

    Anyone know where to get one? I would like to get a 13 or 14" moto-lite wheel wrapped in Alcantara rather than leather. My M3 has it's wheel wrapped in this stuff and I love it. Not looking to wrap my current wheel, I like options ;)

    Wheel Creek

    Local Motors

    Anyone checked out Local Motors? Interesting company, they release design competitions and then the winning design gets built. Not only that, but the way they sell the car is that you can fly out and work with the mechanics to build it over a two week period. Overall I think it sounds pretty...

    Deadbolt - A Great Invention

    I received a call today from my neighbor today to report that two a$$holes were attempting to kick in my door, an attempted robbery. Good news is that my neighbor yelled at them that the cops were on their way (they were) and that they took off. So all is well that ends well since they didn't...

    HVAC Servo's Not Working

    As I continue to debug the car I found that the servos controlling the heat, demist mix, and foot/face mix do not work, they simply do not move. The recirc does work, I can see the servo move but I identified all the other servos but those do not move. Interesting the previous owner apparently...
