Looks like JonnyDrift has solved one the dilemmas we always encounter. He has solved the old "downpipe rubbing" problem by substituting an up-pipe. God bless German Engineering.

Seconded. And I call first time he gets into the throttle. Like the very first time going around whatever a block looks like in Germany.

Well I do, especially carwise. The scene is full of those idiots and it's sad. And Trump hates germany because we don't buy Chevrolets

In other news, the car is for sale:

https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-...47895-216-2658

The advert basically says "car is fucked up, no exhaust, I mounted a turbo and a fuel pump"
