I don't know what it is about Mike Tyson memes, let alone just saying this out-loud, but I like it.



And thanks J!

I appreciate the kind words my friend.

Here's a few pictures I snapped before heading into work after a quick interior / exterior detail.

As far as driving impressions, it couldn't be any more opposite than my S2000 (which is why I absolutely love it so far).

The steering is a bit numb, shifter throws are long, it's extremely quiet, has ungodly torque for a small tune with no breather mods, tons of room, comfortable seats (back seat ), timeless lines and of course fog lights, luxury

I know I won't stfu about the torque, but I've never had a turbo car... Let alone a car with 2. You can pass people like they're standing still in every gear as long as you're between 3-5k. Boost tapers off at 5k and boost drops to around 10-11psi.

I do like the wood though...I like how it's a natural element in such a precision and cold machine. Leave it!

Thanks, man...I appreciate that. I do love my cars. I just want all a da cars!

Chad, I know it, man...I never get the vanity plates, just the specialized ones.

Is it real wood or plastic? If it's real, might be cool to just sand off the clear coat and finish with a matte coat. Would look sweet that way.

Tons of aftermarket stuff for these cars. I would go carbon fiber with his interior.

Stock wheels were 17 x 7.5s and these are 18x8.5s, didnt check the full tire specs but I know they're 235 all around.

I may hit up Jin to get the headliner done

The wood trim is plastic but it doesn't really bother me that much

Any money going into this thing will be preemptive maintenance / more power. Exhaust / breather mods will be first

May want to get on Audizine and ask around. I have the S suspension package on my b7 and it sits a tiny bit lower on 17x8 stock wheels.

Thing is, I need the suspension this high

As it sits right now (4x4), it scrapes on my driveway with my S parked in the garage - entry way is super narrow.

Gotta figure out a plan with that one

Would be a nice road trip up to LA and you'd get a cool photo shoot out of it!

Just make sure your AAA membership is paid up in case you need a tow to get the rest of the way there.

He needs the premium with 250 miles tow. The stardard 50 miles 3 times a year might not be enough for him

Looking forward to the shoot!

I'm going to recoop costs a bit, register the car, and get the headliner done in the next couple of weeks.

Stay tuned!
