  1. I am starting to get bored of the Nebulas, but don't know what to replace them with.
  2. If you had BBS DTMs I'd be driving to your place to trade lol.
  3. Looking great, love seeing other people 3D printing bits for their P80s. Is there a reason for the right angle bump in the printed housing where it meets the airbox? I'd want to smooth that out if possible. EDIT: Appears to be for the mounting bracket. I'm sure it'd be strong enough with that clearanced to make a perfectly smooth routing.
  4. That's an old school TME bar.
  5. You can, I've got a new set with bolts sitting on my shelf waiting for my other rear bumper to get painted.
  6. Been loving your build, such a clean car and fast too. I just got a resin printer, so let me know if you need anything aesthetic printed at very high resolution.
  7. Paint the top/sides red and leave the underside carbon.
  8. New alternator, cabin and engine air filter, and faulty door lock actuator replaced with JY unit (door microswitch failed) for the Saffron R. JY door lock actuator was pulled from a 98 V70 T5 with cloth seats but a factory autodimming rear view mirror; might've pulled that. Finally charges the battery and engages the alarm.
  9. You're welcome for ragging on you constantly.
  10. Have you tried the oil pump seal? It's right in the area you're discussing and I've heard of them leaking before.
  11. Good eye, they're closely related. Alan has since sold, just the CAAD 12 Disc now.
  12. Rob, got any 3D printers at your work? Once the roads are cleaned from salt and the Saff R is out, I could model something up pretty easily.
  13. If I lived near you I'd slap that thought out of your head using the black wing.
  14. I've got a V70XC rear bumper stashed on the side to go on too.
  15. It wouldn't be bastardized if you painted the rear spoiler red like a decade ago.
  16. Make sure that the added heat from the HID bulbs cannot burn the chrome of the halogen projector. I had that happen with ABMs (which are obviously worse quality than OEM Porsche), but the light output now is pitiful. What about a bi-xenon retrofit? I absolutely love mine in the Saff R. So much light, especially high beams.
  17. Check the door speakers or dash tweeters, I believe center channel was only installed if the Dynaudio kit was added.
  18. I thought he was finishing university back when VS was at it's peak. What a geezer.
  19. Yeah I went off the deep end last year too. Quick update, my last city beater (Velosport Courier) died at the hands of a 2015 Corolla that pulled out in front of me, cutting me off at 30km/h and sent me into the quarter panel and airborne when the wheel taco'd. However, I came out with a few medium bruises and $650 towards a replacement steed. So I bought a 1986 Alan Record. OG aluminum race bike, screwed and glued tubing and then I went all minimal designer on it (as I do). Replaced all brake cables, big clean, new brake hoods, tires, tubes, Brooks Cambium C15, etc... It's currently for sale if anyone's interested. It's a 56. Last year I began really riding with some of my friends and realized a 35 year old ride couldn't keep up. In came a 2019 Cannondale Caad 12 105 disc. Have since done a few minor things like replace the saddle because I hated the Prologo on it, but just ridden the damn thing. Local park (Gatineau Park in Quebec) was closed to cars all summer long by a local council (as a test) and became a bicycle playground. Hoping they do it again next year.
  20. We keep getting snow then crazy mild spells that melt it all; and repeat. One fucked up winter so far.
