  1. Glad to hear this! Always good to have you posting here. What's your feeling about Gatewood sticking with us too?
  2. Cool story. I always liked the 944 turbo for reasons I don't really understand.
  3. So sad to hear this news. He and Scott Weiland were my favorites of that generation and we've now lost both in a short time.
  4. Thanks. It's definitely easy to get car poor, that's for sure. Luckily I paid the car off a few years ago so I don't feel as bad about modding it. It's somewhat of a sleeper which I like. Flies under the radar a lot of times. The exhaust is loud and so are the turbos and blow off valve so if you pay attention to it you'll know ti's not stock. The challenge is figuring out if the car has just an exhaust on it or a lot more. I like the M roadsters, those are fun cars. I have a friend who has one with some bolt ons and uses it as his track car. I've been in it for a couple sessions around Road Atlanta and it's a really fun car. If I ever buy a new BMW I will definitely be doing European delivery. My friend did it when he bought his M4 and highly recommended it. They rented a different BMW while there and drove the Nurburgring which sounds amazing, I think BMW wouldn't sign off on letting them take one of their cars on the track or something like that. Don't remember the specifics but they had to rent a separate car for that. I've been looking at doing the M driving school in SC or doing the Porsche one now that they've moved to Atlanta. My brother and I visited Italy a few years ago and we took a tour of the Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Pagani factories which was awesome. I rented a Ferrari 458 Italia outside of the factory and was blasting up and down the roads which was really cool to do in Italy. The co-driver didn't realize that I knew how to activate launch control so when he was telling me where to go I launched it and went tearing out of the parking lot. He wasn't very happy with me. They had a go-pro mounted in the back window so that you can buy the video of your drive and at one point he had his hands together in prayer asking me to slow down haha. I was going about 130mph at the time and they'll let you go fast in the straights but always get on you to take the corners really slow. The tune that I have in my car automatically switches the DSC off and puts it into DTC mode which is what happens if you just push the button instead of holding it down. This allows you to be a bit more aggressive and spin the tires in a straight line but if you start to get sideways it will bring you back in line. I almost never drive on the street with all the electronics switched off, that's saved for the race track. I find the DSC to be overly intrusive especially now that the car has an LSD in the rear to help with traction in both a straight line and the corners.
  5. Thanks for the advice. I never did buy a bike so my biggest problem now is sticky summer tires and the occasional ice in Atlanta.
  6. Thanks for sharing @I_M4_AU I'm a bit younger than you it sounds like so I've only owned 3 cars so far. Although, I've been interested in anything fast ever since I was a kid. I've also never owned an automatic which seems to be a rare streak these days. First car was a 1998 VW GTI. Nothing special there. Slow as crap but a lot of fun in the corners. It had a few mods like intake, exhaust, chip, and short shifter. It still only made about 140hp on a good day. Passed that along to my brother when I went to college and he blew up the transmission. Second car was a 2006 Mazda 6s hatch with a V6 and 5 speed. Needed something reliable since the VW wasn't, and I needed more space to haul my stuff from Northern VA to Auburn. Pretty fun car for what it was and it had decent power. I added an intake, stiffer springs and shocks, rear sway bar so I could kick the back end around a bit more, and electronic exhaust cut outs to open it up when I wanted to open it up and dump straight from the headers. Handled decently well and was quick enough to keep up with most of my friends. That car also saved my life when I was t-boned and the car was totaled. All of the impact was taken in the drivers front side and I was knocked unconscious, still don't remember parts of that evening. The officer that responded said that after watching the crash on a red light camera he was surprised that I walked away without any major injuries. This was about 6 months after I had graduated and I had saved up enough to buy a motorcycle, I was just waiting for it to warm up for me to start learning. I had second thoughts on the bike after that wreck so I bought a fun car instead. Third car is also my current ride and is definitely the most fun car I've owned. 2008 BMW 135i with an extensive mod list. RB Turbos, JB4 piggy back with custom back end flash, Walbro 450 fuel pump, BMS intake, RB turbo inlets, Riss Racing 3" exhaust, VRSF 3" catless downpipes, VRSF 7" intercooler, BMS meth injection, clutch type LSD, Spec stage 2+ clutch and single mass flywheel, KW v2 coilovers, 1M front bumper, carbon fiber rear lip spoiler, and Apex forged wheels. There's always somebody out there with deeper pockets and a faster car, but I don't run in to too many that can out run this car. I've outrun a few exotics and the owners usually aren't happy about losing to a 1 series.
  7. Do we have 5 star heart?
  8. Who did UGA pull the scholly from?
  9. Great news! Thanks!
  10. Any word on Devan Barrett? I know @WarDamnEagleWDE had said he was worried if Clemson came calling.
  11. J&M still has them. I stopped in a couple months ago during a football weekend and remember seeing it.
  12. Here is the article tgr4lfe was referencing, I work for a software company in the wireless industry so we've been following closely. It's amazing that something like this happened, such a disaster. We won't even allow a Note 7 through our doors. In fact the DOT went as far as banning them from all commercial flights, you may now be prosecuted for boarding an airplane with one. There are a few other things we're keeping an eye out on: 1. We're expecting this mistake to cost Samsung their entire global Q4 profits. Keep in mind how large and diversified Samsung is. Most people think of them as cell phones, televisions, and other consumer electronics. Most overlook their other businesses such as medical devices, biotech drugs, life insurance, solar panels, and hell they even build ships! 2. Samsung is known as having a higher than average employee suicide rate. We probably won't be able to gather any real data here, but I won't be surprised if we hear something about an increase. 3. This is presenting a great opportunity for the Google Pixel. Google will pounce on this in Q4 and has a large possible market to capture next week when this device launches. I'm personally a fan of the iPhone, but for those that weren't impressed by the iPhone 7 the Pixel is looking very attractive right about now.
  13. My current favorites are Power and Ray Donovan. Power is really good if you like the gang/underworld type of shows. It focuses on two best friends and their drug network, the drama, and violence that comes with it. Ray Donovan is basically about a guy that is paid to "fix" problems for people. Think early seasons of Scandal, but more violence and less politics. I'm also going to binge watch Narcos season 2 sometime soon. Ballers is good but I'm just getting into it. If you haven't seen all of the seasons go back and watch Sons of Anarchy.
  14. Business
  15. NOOO!! My favorite spot in Auburn! Price's catered Camp War Eagle for me as a prospective student and was my first introduction to real southern BBQ since I am from the DC suburbs. Since then it has been my favorite spot, I used to eat there at least once a week during my undergrad years. None of the others ever tasted as good to me. I'm seriously considering making the drive from Atlanta to eat there one last time.
