      clean other than the midwing and the oem exhaust tips that stick out too much.

      however, to each their own.

      To each their own. I certainly appreciate the effort, but it's not for me.

      if he would take off the tips, change the frikken wing(which is supposed to add 10hp) and put the stock grill back on, it would look good. other than that, it doesnt look too bad.

      Midwing, eyelids, grill dislike.

      Under the hood , but too much bling with all the brushed aluminum bits.

      This is the guy too a few issues ago in European Car that had a blurb in the letters to the editor. I 'd then too.

      What's Mogul racing brake fluid?

      I remember that midwing from way back when the original owner posted pics of it.
      Didn't much care for it then, still don't much care for it now.

      the only reason i would ever consider driving with that wing is if i felt like i wanted to pretend to be a jet fighter or on those star wars hoverjetbike things.

      Its funny how folks pile in the Hate Fest online when they probably wouldn't say those things to the guys face at a meet.

      The internetz... log in and become an ass.



      OP,

      Sweet car.

      I wish I had a Supercharged R.

      You all do realize that members are directly responsible for the quality of Autobiography features, don't you? If you aren't happy with what you are seeing, "build" something you'd like to see featured and submit the Q&A and photos to the staff. If we spent half the time being constructive that we spend pissing and moaning, maybe the dark clouds wouldn't linger overhead.

      If you don't have anything to submit, then the best I can offer is that you should push others to submit theirs if you are so adamant about it. Otherwise, it's just foolish to sit and complain.
