Did Infineon again last weekend. Don't track distracted, you will spin and head to a wall. Car's okay except for the alignment being whacked.

Dropped car off at the body shop for the final touches to the exterior / fixing random **** I broke.

Then to finish the interior, get it realigned... and then real photoshoot.

Buttlift is now done. Pretty cookie cutter, but it makes me smile.


Debadged ftw.


Elected to avoid the unpainted lip, but I had to do this.


Ducktail ftw.


Auditioning some chances for the new DD... any guesses?

This is probably the ideal use for rep wheels and spare seats.

That last picture of the speedometer is most definitely a CTS-V?

...and looks like a coil pack has failed. 5 days to track time, with a subframe reinforcement in the middle. Start the clock, people.

Haven't planned that far ahead, but likely.

I'll be (hopefully not in a rental) at T-Hill 14-15th with Audi Golden Gate and T-Hill on the 23rd with NCRC.

SIGN UP. DO IT. BURN RUBBER / BANG GEARS.

So I was limping to the shop on 5 cylinders when the car started running significantly work. After barely being able to pull away from a red light (6 blocks from home), I elected to call a flat bed.

Unfortunately, I had given my tow hook to my ex when her Z4 broke down last year, and my race hook was at home with my fire suit... so I got hit with some extra fees. Suck. Also, I apparently don't carry road side assistance on my insurance... so kids, make sure you have tow and a tow hook in the car.

Car is now at the shop and will hopefully be ready on Friday.



Now let's see if the bike wants to start...
