  1. Re: Mustang Lassoed - Pass the Cayman, Get a Ticket

    Yes, aggressive lane change but even worse is the complete lack of situational awareness. It looks like he never slowed until the cop pulled out. What's the point of 10+ over anyway, especially in...

    Re: 981 Tinted Tail lights/GTS difference

    Same here on my white BS. I actually received the Euro version and got amber indicators. Still plug and play, I think they look better than the red indicator.
