Love the brace! Although all the SAAD logos are gigantic compared to most products out there, I don't really care it has a logo since it's not something that is really seen.


On that note, it is clear who should and shouldn't be addressing the public relations end of the business regardless if they are right or wrong. One can design the best things in the world and not have anyone interested if business is conducted in such manner.

Saad is an awesome guy and is a gentleman as well as everyone else at Saad Racing! He is very intelligent and knows his sh*t about cars. He has built many many many world record cars. He just doesn't have patience for un-educated people...not saying any names. A lot of people are gullible in this industry and believe a lot of things they hear even though it might not necessarily be true. He likes to educate people with true HONEST facts and people take it the wrong way. Saad has done a lot for some people on here and then they go and disrespect him. Dont get the wrong impression of Saad, if you have the chance to meet him or see his products you will be thoroughly impressed with the professionalism!

My 2 cents..

I think you're thinking of Heydin. Who had a Tiag/Silver E46 M3.

long story short your current/future customer base would appreciate a more mordern/discrete logo.. Not your current obnoxious/loud logo especially for your intake manifold! I think you would probably sell your carbon fiber manifold to every e46 turbo user out here if it was toned down dramatically.. While you believe in making the best products and backing your claims with results (which we all appreciate btw) maybe you should consider speaking with a media design company give your company a new fresh look! Of course just offering my humble opinion. I'm most likely going to pick up the brace either way!

How about this Saad, take our very cool SP logo and make the P into an R. Then you can use it for Saad Racing! Just a thought

Just to clarify, I don't work for Saad. Never have, never will.
I work for Jason at ProEFI.
Yes, ProEFI and Saad Racing are two separate companies. What a concept.

I, thankfully, no longer drive an E46 M3. But I will still be at MFest, because last year was a great time....(No thanks to you Marcus)

I'll get back to trolling though.
If any of you ever decide to buy a real car I suppose I'll see you on the Corvette Forums.

I know you've outlined that this brace helps keep the front of the diff from jumping around, but do you have any cars that have had it installed for 10's of throusands of miles. Will this help eliminate wheel hope at all and if the diff continues to move a bit could having this brace on crack the rear diff cover? Does it transfer any additional noise into the cabin?

Thanks for any additional insight

Very good questions. Have not had it installed for the miles but have run them on the fastest cars at the drag strip which is a extreme test and much harder than street driving. The rear will not move and this will help to save the cover from cracking, without it the cover will crack. Road noise should go up a little but not that noticeable.

If you want to be able to take it on and off without removing the rear end you can put a hole in the trunk the size of a quarter and we have a plug for it. But if you drop the rear end than the install is complete bolt on. Your choice.
