What are your impressions after a few months of living the dream? Still worth it? Jones-ing for more? Do tell...:cool:
I think the car is perfect now. All who drive it are all smiles. Probably many faster cars out there, but this one is a special balance of fast and beautiful at the same time. Just love it!

And the sound is awesome. I like to drive through the downtown in our small town and hear the jet fighter sound bounce off the buildings of the urban canyon and watch the heads turn wondering if the Blue Angles are loose on the town!

Hey man where did you get the intake manifold badge?

That badge is custom made. The design is based off of the logo used at Wookies In The Woods several years ago. It's a dragon head merged with the .:R32 logo. I worked with a machine shop close to home and had them digitize the design, machine it and get it painted. It was a personal pet project of the owner of the shop and very difficult to machine the fine details. She worked on it in her spare time. It took two years to get it right. I had them make two, just in case one didn't turn out. Well they both did turn out nice and I ended up putting the "spare" up for the raffle at Wookies In The Woods a few years back. The spare has some screws added to the corners so it's a little bit different. A gentleman from TX got the "spare" from the raffle, so there are actually two of these that are similar but different...

Mine,



And the "spare"
