    Oh snap! looks like 550 has some competition this month....Gonna have to give the win to the Ciel here for its lack of tacky ricer lights in the grill. Sorry and thanks for playing.

    Re: STS-V Car of the Month: August

    still wouldn't wear the submariner... i just don't do watches.

    i was just trying to make the point that both the ricer and 550's had the same thing done to them

    sure one is nicer than the other (both the car in total, and the lit+painted intercooler job)
    but they're both painted intercoolers with lights

    i was also pointing out that my personal preference is to not wear watches
    (personally, i actually like how the painted and lit intercooler looks)

    Well if comments like this aren't immature then I don't know what is. Congrats on completely missing the point by the way. And for clarification, there were less 2G GSX's produced than our STS-V's and I had more money in that car than the MSRP on the V, but I really don't see how that matters.

    Obviously 550 has decided that he is a 'pioneering' member of this forum and that he feels a need to win praise for the modifications that he has made to his vehicle. I am sure that every single person that saw his car parked in front of that bar was amazed by his rocket-science-like abilities to extract a few more horsepower from his motor and add some lights on the exterior.

    550, the fact is that you have done some good modifications to your car and it does look nice. I don't have anything against the intercooler lights, its just not what I would do on a car as classy as the V. However, you have not revinvented the wheel or even done anything that someone else hasn't done before (point of the sprayed intercooler which I did 5 years ago and I copied off someone else) so your arrogance is unjustified IMO. That 'ricer' I posted the picture of made 500hp/liter and posted a 9.89 sec 1/4 mile time. I built that car myself, starting by gutting it down to the chasis and working my way out. I built the motor, the fuel system, the turbo system, etc. I was proud of my accomplishment and I had 3 years of blood, sweat and tears in it...but the fact was that I didn't invent anything that I did. And so I never expected anyone to pat me on the back and say your the man...unless your inventing the first nuclear powered car have some modesty.

    I know Chris. I was just geeking out..... I have a watch fetish. I have 6 right now and only wish I could afford the Submariner. I have an Invicta that looks just like the submariner because that is as close as I will probably get to it.

    OK, now i'm having deja vu - did this watch conversation already happen a few months ago?

    Re: STS-V Car of the Month: August

    I will have some better pics of the v by the end of the week when I get back home. I have some very cool ones at home. And I will get all my new dyno videos and road videos up on YouTube when I get home. So every one can hear the snakebite at a full cry. thanks Ryan I'm not listing my mods most know what they are and 550 will just say his are better any way.

    Woodward dream cruise was a great success - check the woodward thread in the CTS-V and V2 forum. Me and Gizmo even got to hang out for a few hours!
