That's a wonderful looking Z. Tasteful wheels! Do you have SpeedBleeders installed on your brakes?

Thanks. I was taking a gamble buying the wheels online without seeing in person. But I really like them.

As for bleeders, I've been using a vacuum system. It's done a good job, but not sure if it's making a complete seal around the bleeder valve. Might have to go the old school route and enlist the help of a pedal pusher.

Plus owning a lambo has always been a boyhood dream
It is incredibly how awesome the GranTurismos sound at idle. Congrats on the Lam too!

The overall quality of Maserati products has me on the fence about buying one. They sure look & sound cool.

Elys and I test drove a used Aston Martin Rapide on Saturday. I think that'll be our next car. Just wicked in every sense.

Very nice! I just picked up a used R8 (v8). We are actually using it for our business or I would have gone M6V10.

Wow, those are cool. A buddy had the V10 M5 in a manual. That car like 8 mpg city at best.

I know I am not the only one who'd like to see some pictures of your new ride!

What kind of business necessitates having an R8? Are you fabricating a new exhaust in that picture? How long does it take to remove the back bumper section?

I have a side business that caters to the gun industry and the car is good eye candy for visual marketing posts.

As for the exhaust, it was a purchased unit from a company called Avior (titanium). That is just a picture of the install. The place where I took it had it for 7 hours for just the install (which was the same timeframe the Audi Dealership quoted, same price too).

Does Audi offer an OEM gun holster? I know BMW has them for HK's and some other guns.

Yes, they are outfitted for police cars in Europe. Just like you'd see on a Crown Vic or something...
