    A music subscription costs $10 for you get all the music you want. This costs more than just buying the car you want to drive if you are even excited by the prospect of driving a Leaf.

    I used to think people paying for music subscription services were crazy. Look at me now!

    Adding power is one thing but keeping the car cool with increased boost pressure and WOT driving is an entirely different issue. Do not skimp on cooling or your next track day or launch in summer weather may trigger a limp mode when you least expect or want it. CSF Radiators has a cooling solution for DSG equipped EA888 2.0 MKVII Golfs (GTI and R) plus the 8V Audi A3 and S3 models. Details: Reasonable pricing and easy plug and play install. Nice pieces for peace of mind.

    Incredible numbers here considering this MKV/A90 Toyota Supra is completely stock other than the EcuTek software suite paired with some ethanol. Equilibrium Tuning did the tuning work and the results are impressive. The Dyno type is a Dynocom and considering the baseline figures it does indeed read a bit high. Still, this is over 600 lb-ft of torque at the wheels as measured with a gain of 211 lb-ft of torque over stock: Peak power comes at 5200 rpm but considering the increase over stock Equilibrium Tuning is doing a great job getting everything they can from the turbo while keeping power over 500 whp to roughly 6500 rpm. EcuTek's Supra B58 software is still said to be in beta but with flex-fuel capability like this it is going to be hard to beat.

    Usually styling is an Aston Martin strong point where one does not need to modify the factory design. Well, it seems even Aston Martin finally had enough of the grill design on the new Vantage and went back to their classic style on the Vantage Roadster. Who knows what Aston Martin was thinking with the grill they launched the car with. It always made the new Aston Martin designs feel 'off' as if something was missing. Even the DBS Superleggera benefits: The most popular modification for the Vantage will likely be going to the classic grill. Judge for yourself: Original: New classic style:

    What you are looking at is a new product currently under development by TiAL Sport which will soon undergo rigorous testing. What is it? A 991.2 9A2B6 3.0 turbo inlet designed for the TiAL M660 turbocharger upgrade. This piece improves efficiency and will drop boost pressure by roughly 3-4 psi as measured at the inlet. Essentially, it amounts to less heat and more power for those running the M660 turbo upgrade. Tuners who know about the piece feel the biggest improvements over the factory design are the TiAL inlet tubes and now these turbo inlet pieces. The PorscheBoost.com Project 991.2 Carrera will soon be getting these pieces with the goal of topping 700 horsepower at the wheels. Breaking into the 7XX rwhp range with just the addition of these turbo inlets will speak volumes. Expect dyno data and an official release with pricing in the next few weeks. You will of course be able to purchase these pieces directly through the forum or by e-mailing admin@boostaddict.com

    I guess I could see some company that deals with people coming in and out (talent agency) having a fleet of cars they change but I don't see individual application making much sense. Plus Nissan would be way down the list anyway.

    When I saw $699 per month I was kinda intrigued but to get any good cars its $900 plus $100 per day for the GTR? That is crazy. I honestly don't know who would possibly want these subscription services. So many manufacturers seem to be CERTAIN that this is where the market is going but I just don't see it when the pricing is so ridiculous. I know one of the guys working on Porsche's subscription service and that I can understand a bit more because all of the cars are actually desirable and I would like the variety but still the pricing is prohibitive even for Porsche standards.

    That is lower than I thought especially for the CCX. Would be super interested to see a newer Koenigsegg Agera or Regera

    If you own a Lamborghini Urus you have several widebody kit options on the market. It seems there is a need for owners to customize their Lambo SUV and 1016 Industries has two widebody options if you have the cash. The standard widebody kit is $30,795.00. The forge carbon option is $34,795.00 or another $4k. Race Hood 2 Front Spoilers Side Skirts Rear Diffuser Roof Spoiler Trunk Spoiler Widebody Arches with Vents This is probably the best widebody execution so far for the Urus:

    Not sure how I make up driving a Porsche PDK and GM Corvette auto back to back: https://www.boostaddict.com/content.php?8486-BoostAddict-Comparison-2017-Porsche-911-Carrera-(991-2)-vs-2017-Chevrolet-Corvette-Z06 And? That makes the automatic superior somehow? Based on what? They're very similar: https://www.boostaddict.com/content.php?4559-GM-claims-their-upcoming-C7-Z06-8L90-8-speed-automatic-shifts-faster-than-the-Porsche-PDK-dual-clutch-but-can-it If it's a transaxle design it has to sit further back. Auto or DCT, doesn't matter. The C8 despite being heavier is putting up quicker times than the C7 how? Oh... the DCT. It's physically impossible for the 10-speed to shift faster as it isn't already in the next gear like a dual clutch is. Also, where is your proof? You're just talking. Where is anything that shows the shift speed for the auto is quicker because to this date I haven't seen it. Good. Enough of GM being cheap. Shifts smoother how? I certainly felt the PDK shifting more precisely and smoother. I have a DCT from 2008 with literally 11 modes. LOL the automatic logic in the Corvette is terrible. It would do its own thing instead of doing what I wanted it to do. Requires more service why? Many DCT's are lifetime for the car. More likely to fail based on what? More ratios do not mean a car is faster. It certainly will mean plenty of highway ratios for better MPG though. Still, there isn't some magical advantage in the number of gear ratios an automatic has. You can have 10-speed DCT's too. You provided no evidence to support anything you stated and simply said some guy at GM thinks the auto is better so it must be so. The GT500 and new Corvette are better cars than any Mustang or Corvette previously with an automatic. They finally got with the times and spent some money.

    Got an allocation for Van Winkle from Total Wine. Unfortunately I didn't get the 15y nor the 20/23 but the 10. While it's not the same goodness as the 15 but i was shocked after blind tasting them, I would pick W.B. Saffell which has more depth in the pallet and more floral on the nose. Thanks to the tip from Fred Minnick, one of the judges from San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Sucks for the guys keep buying Van Winkle 10 at $699 retail price. As posted a few threads above, if you could find W.B. Saffell, which is $50 or lesser for 350ml at local stores, highly recommended. After all when Pappy got 99 points at Beverage Tasting Institute's panel, Julian III bought the juice from Wild Turkey which was also acquired from Old Boone. So, if next year I will win the allocation again, i will pass unless it's a 15y so I could compare again. Can't wait! Cheers!

    BMW is going to stretch the 8-series platform to as many variants as they can. That is the game today and this is the 'four-door' coupe version of the 8-Series or the G16 chassis. It certainly looks great as a four-door but the already heavy platform gains weight. Fortunately it offers stout powerplants with the N63TU3 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 powering the M850i version. The motor is underrated and responds very well to tuning. Well, the big boat hustles. 100-200 kph in 9.07 stock is respectable: As is the 11.86 1/4 mile ET (although no trap speed shared): This car is not a tuning value just yet but used examples will no doubt take a big hit and at that point an M850i Gran Coupe with a tune will be very appealing.

    Have you ever thought of subscribing to Nissan to try out all their cars? It is doubtful there are many people clamoring for this. Nissan is offering to tiers at $699 per month and $899 per month that will let you sample the brand's cars (after you pay the $495 activation fee). For $699 choosing from the Altima, Rogue, Pathfinder and Frontier is not all that exciting. For $899 you get the Maxima, Murano, Armada, Titan, 370Z, Leaf Plus and GT-R. The GT-R will run you an extra $100 per day with a seven day maximum. That means if you use the full week the service now runs you $1600 a month. Central Houston Nissan is debuting the service. Our feeling? No thanks.

    Another 800+ wheel horsepower S55 this time powered by VTT (Vargas Turbo Technologies) GC turbochargers. This is an F82 M4 that is using a JB4 stack meaning a BEF (back end flash) in concert with the BMS piggyback. Unfortunately, the full graph was not posted: The peak figures of 812 horsepower and 728 lb-ft of torque at the wheels sure are strong though. What else can we tell you? Not much. The motor specs (built? crank hub mods?) were not shared but it has upgraded cooling and intake mods. Edit, built motor:
