    ...Drove a F56 with some mods on it today...and...I liked it!

    We put a Milltek in a 6 speed F56 with a JB+ and a swaybar, and it was a pretty sweet ride: fast, nimble, quick in the corners. The soul is still there, underneath the lipsticked pig.

    The tips look nice.

    Here's the whole system:

    Let's have a talk, folks.

    Every family has one. We love them even though they are well you know. We still invite them to the reunions. We can talk about them but others can't. It's just part of it.

    Our brother The F searies. :D

    Eric are you drinking Philadeplhia pubic water again?

    Next you are going to tell us you 911 is done and you are going to trade it in on a Pontiac Aztek so you can go racing again. :lol:

    Truthfully - if the driving experience was good enough I could overlook the ugliness - It'd need a real LSD and the JCW kit in black with wider wheels - but I doubt I would be as attached as I am to the R53.

    Ediff has always been a nonstarter for me.

    Eric if you keep this up Dave may not come see you any more. But maybe that's your strategy.

    Philly Pubic water? Does that go with a Philly Crotchcheese-steak sandwich?

    I'll pass on both of those, thank you....

    Looks a whole lot better than the front end.

    I actually quite like the rest of the car.

    I'm fine with Dave never coming to see me as long as he has somebody bring me occasional examples of his wife's cooking (how he ever tricked her into marrying him, I'll never know).:D

    I agree. It's the only part that I'll never grow to accept.

    Eric, how did the exhaust sound? Not too loud, nice tone?


    Oh that's funny. I think with that comparison I dislike the front end less now. :D

    Change is inevitable...

    We can either accept the F- series and learn what they have got, or abandon the cars we love.

    Good to hear it was an impressive experience.
