A bit of parking lot porn I came across this morning on my way into work.

 

 

 

R8 GT and a 612.

 

I'll take the Audi, thanks.

Well yeah, 612 values are practically in freefall now. The R8 really is a sweet driving car.

Got this yesterday, 2012 Golf R:



Big boy tuning, with details at each step, will begin tomorrow. We're going to see what this thing can do, and at what price points. So far I really like it, it's like a baby A45 AMG.

Why? I don't plan for anyone to ever ride in the back seat. This is going to be a track toy.

Check out the APR tunes, that is pretty much what everyone has had the most success with. You're pretty limited on what turbo's you can run in the MkVI's because there are only like 3-5 tunes out there.

2013 Porsche 981 Boxster - white with navy top/interior.  Sadly, if I had waited another model year, I could have overpaid for a Burmeister audio system instead of the Bose.  The sound is pretty good though.

 

With the global warming going on, its been one of the coolest springs here on the Gulf Coast, and the top has pretty much been down since I picked it up in December, except for rain.  The top goes up/down at speeds up to 30 some odd mph, so I will keep the top down even on questionable days.

We do our own work in-house, but from the looks of it, all we'll need to bother with is software, intake, and exhaust. That and some new Michelin Pilot SS meats. The stock Bosch turbo and IC looks to be good for nearly 400bhp, if we have heat issues we can always get something bigger.

You will definitely push that turbo way past its efficiency range (heat) at 400 chp if it doesn't choke out by then. Those cars are torque monsters on stock turbos though which is really what is fun and useful at the track. Any plans for weight loss/suspension? Getting rid of that stock suspension for some adjustable Konis (my experiences with Bilstein have all left me frustrated so far in terms of longevity and customer service) and some coil springs will do that car SO MUCH good.

Software is what I was referring to. I'll be interested to see what you do with it. Here's a pic of my MKVI GTI:

 

It has been my first "newer" car and I don't really enjoy it that much. I'll be trying to sell it next summer once my project car is on the road.

Im gonna go ghetto style and test drive one of the new Coopers (with no intention of buying biggrin.gif) to see if the newest version really did improve.

What failed on them?
