On a unrelated topic; I was wondering this morning on my drive in as I passed Northland VW "I wonder what pylon is doing with his Flames bug now that we've been swept?"

Hahaha that thing is awesome, pylon. I totally would have bought it if I were you, too. Then I would have regretted buying something that looks so lame.

I feel like you need to wear black socks, sandals, white shorts and a Hawaiian shirt when you drive this thing.


PM Dion, I reckon he has some...

Only give away is the dual exhaust with bumper flair and the little vents on the fenders. How many kms? Looks sub 50k.

The vents ? on the fenders are old Buick symbols. Four vents means top of the line (Roadmaster back in the day). Three vents mean its more of a plain jane and maybe smaller.

The base Allure doesn't have those vs. this hopped up model. I was speaking strictly about the things that give it away as a sleeper that car folks would potentially notice. I didn't realize they were a Buick design throwback, makes sense now that I think of the GNX ect.

Someone managed a real life need for speed hot pursuit in a stolen brand new lime green 911 turbo today. They even evaded Hawcs chasing them north of the city. Obviously the chase was called off for safety reasons when the idiot went 200+.

This could go into the "Watches you wear" thread or this thread, but technically I'm not wearing it; the car is.

Many Mercedes-Benz cars have an analog clock in the center stack. For the regular production models, this is a silver-on-white clock with silver hands and indices, and a small Mercedes star on the white dial. (It looks like this.) When the headlamps come on, the dial glows a luminescent green.

AMG models get a special touch here; their clocks are made by IWC. (Normal | Illuminated) And model for model, it is a direct swap to replace your non-AMG clock with the AMG version. Dealers charge an arm and a leg for the damn thing, I got one in pristine condition off eBay for a fraction of the dealer price.

Most pointless 'upgrade' ever? Maybe. In my defense, I'm a watch guy, how can I not go for that?

Car gets chipped in a couple weeks.

It was probably a combination of the the Ventiports on the fender and the rear bumper displaying the dual exhaust pipes.
- V6 models only had three Ventiports per side, but the V8 had four per side
- The regular top-of-the-line CXS (before you got to the 'Super') also had dual exhaust for its V6, but the rear exits were simple turn-down pipes.


Supers are sneaky as hell. Nice pickup!

Small touches like that are some of my favourite upgrades to see/do. Going to look awesome
