      Majority?

      I think you need to recount what models in the US are based on VW models.
    2. I think Tesla helps all automakers at this point...

      I think Tesla helps all automakers at this point more than it hurts them. They're not taking a meaningful number of sales from anyone and they're doing a great job of making EV's "cool" and...
    3. Exactly. And I agree with you that people will...

      Exactly. And I agree with you that people will still be trying to get one hand over fist.

      Is it "hate" to point that out as no other automaker pulls those kinds of shenanigans?
    4. That's entirely different. For one, they are...

      That's entirely different. For one, they are legally required to list the "as shown" price, and for two the lower price model would actually be available.
    5. I get that, I just don't like the marketing...

      I get that, I just don't like the marketing tactic. They keep pumping the price point (and yes, some of it is media hype) but they know darn well they aren't going to launch at that price point. It...

      Eh, I think officially calling it "Signature" or "Founder" series is just marketing at this point.

      He has already said they will only be making high featured expensive versions first to recoup...

      My mistake, though a harmless oversight in this context.




      Which is what I said, this includes F250, F350, Dodge 2500 and 3500, Silverado 2500, 3500 etc.

      These are the commonly (illegally)...
    8. It's still ambiguous if this bill applies to...

      It's still ambiguous if this bill applies to light duty vehicles too (and is buried in a Heavy Duty bill for obscurity) or if it genuinely just applies to 3/4 ton and up trucks.

      Reputable sources...

      We had some discussion on this a few pages back - the EPA's "heavy duty" classification is different than the DOT's meaning this bill includes 3/4 and 1 ton pickups too, and that's likely the focus...

      I think the cert is going to follow the VIN making these OK.
    11. Not so fast. Either SEMA is completely wrong or...

      Not so fast. Either SEMA is completely wrong or there are implications in there for real racecars. It seems like they might be trying to slip it under the radar, hence hiding it in the "heavy duty"...
    12. And dey got GUNS! :eek:

      And dey got GUNS! :eek:

      Ah, that detail could change things. EPA classification brings HD down to the 3/4 and 1 ton ranks.

      So it could be outlawing "off-road only" parts for...
    14. Yeah, but HD only applies to class 7 and up. ...

      Yeah, but HD only applies to class 7 and up. Nobody would call that a "racecar".

      The HD classification doesn't match any of the press released on this at all.

      I could be wrong, but I don't buy...

      If that was true, that point probably would have come up when SEMA met with the EPA.
    16. Actually heavy duty vehicles makes no sense. DOT...

      Actually heavy duty vehicles makes no sense. DOT already enforces modifications to HD vehicles.

      I'm 99% sure this is a light duty vehicle issue.
    17. Bringing it over with the facelift.

      Bringing it over with the facelift.
    18. Absolutely. Actually it's more of a...

      Absolutely.

      Actually it's more of a clarification. It's already illegal for road use under the CAA. This just prevents selling it as a racing or off road product.
    19. I have no idea if/how they would enforce it. ...

      I have no idea if/how they would enforce it.

      To answer your question, it's to close the loophole. It's to stop tuning at the source. I find it hard to believe they can't make something stick to...

      You're in the wrong spot - you need to be reading the bottom of page 862.
