    True, except when the judge says you have to pay their medical expenses...

    Well, to finish this thread off I brought home my 2006 R52 S. loved the drive home with the top down, cool breeze and the sound of that supercharger! ImageUploadedByTapatalk1335230533.663229.jpg

    It was bound to happen. Once you are addicted you have to move on to the stronger stuff.

    Yes it will be making an appearance at MOTD.

    CAI and pulley are definitely on the short list. Probably won't happen until after MOTD though.

    Chris, contact Chad and have him do the pulley and CAI while you're at the Dragon. The Hellbender test drive after install will have you smiling for a year!

    Not true justajim. A 15% pulley CAI & exhaust are very close to what the JCW kit has. It's a very reliable boost in performance. I've had that stuff on my MINI for 100,000 miles with no problems. Must be those oil changes... ;)

    I thought he flew for a private outfit. I didn't know he was in the "Air Farce". I'm still not talking to him anymore. :D

    M.A.D. said she saw you last night. Well she figured it was you because she didn't think anyone except a new vert owner would be driving around with the top down in 50 degree weather.
