    Originally Full Race priced this turbo upgrade for the BMW S55 higher but competition pushed the price down to $3999. At that price point with no core exchange this bolt in hybrid upgrade becomes more attractive to BMW F80 M3 and BMW F82 M4 owners. Features: Performance-optimized Billet compressor wheel with latest generation blade aero A direct bolt-on replacement; all connections to the vehicle utilize OE inlet and outlet to retain factory intake plumbing and exhaust routing. Manufactured with 100% brand-new OEM components – Not remanufactured and no core charge Ready to install out of the box, with pre-set electronic wastegate Step-Gap oil seal on Turbine side Multipad Thrust Bearing Assembly Watercooled Center Section That all sounds nice, what kind of power are we talking? 672 rwhp: Nice numbers on E85 but the supporting modifications are not stated. Definitely an option to consider.

    Anyone on this board who believes they have insight into USA/DPRK are facing cognitive dissonance. At this point in the conversation what source of data can be trusted?

    And? LOL ok so that's it, no more meetings or discussions? It's a wrap? What are you talking about? South Korea wants our troops to leave and they should take over their own security interests. It isn't in our interest to remain in Korea forever. Just like it isn't in our interest to police the Middle East. You just said fought three wars to keep peace... that doesn't make any sense. Trump is showing he isn't their enemy and willing to negotiate. He isn't just ignoring them or hoping this goes away on its own. He is making more progress than any US president. Treat them with some respect and attempt to improve the lives of everyone on the peninsula. What's your strategy? Ignore him so he screams louder and does more tests?

    Giving up his nukes wasn't a part of this meeting. He is just supposed to give them up instantly? It's a peace process. It won't be accomplished overnight. This was a great step forward. Whether you like it or not he is the leader of North Korea. What would you do? Ignore him until his nuclear arsenal is ready to go? Last I checked I remember Churchill and Roosevelt meeting with Stalin. Did they give the USSR legitimacy? Why was that ok?

    Here it is, the even sharper Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO. What is the difference between the PRO and the standard R? The PRO gets revised aerodynamics, suspension, and more lightweight carbon fiber pieces. Engine output remains the same. What do these differences add up to? Six seconds on the Nurburgring. The PRO laps the Nurburgring in 7:04.6. This is an AMG GT for the most serious of track junkies. Only 750 will be made and if you were meant to have one your Mercedes-AMG rep likely already contacted you about it. The number of units coming to the USA is not specified. Mercedes-Benz USA announced pricing today for the new Mercedes- AMG GT R PRO, an exclusive model from the high-performance AMG GT family. Starting from $199,650*, the GT R PRO is limited to 750 units globally and features further-honed driving dynamics, specifically tuned for the racetrack. Drawing on experience gained from the triumphant motorsport successes of the AMG GT3 and GT4 racing cars, the Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO features a new adjustable coil-over suspension, lightweight construction with carbon fiber components, unique race-inspired design and functional aerodynamic enhancements. These improvements enabled AMG GT3 racing driver Maro Engel to complete a circuit of the Nürburgring North Loop in exactly 7.04.632 minutes while driving the new AMG GT R PRO. This bettered the previous time set by the AMG GT R by approximately six seconds, and demonstrates the great potential of AMG's current flagship GT. Unique performance and design highlights of the new AMG GT R PRO include: AMG RIDE CONTROL coil-over suspension with manual damping adjustment, allowing for precise tuning of spring rate, rebound and compression. This fine-tuning is possible via permanently installed adjustment wheels on the damper, providing optimal adjustment of the suspension setup to suit specific tracks or personal preference. Enlarged carbon fiber front splitter with aluminum supports, aerodynamic carbon fiber 'flics' on the front bumper, functional aerodynamic 'gills' in the front fenders, and an adjustable front axle carbon fiber sway bar. All of these components work together to improve front-axle downforce. Newly redesigned carbon fiber roof with lowered center section, matte carbon fiber crossbar and interior trim, carbon fiber side skirt inserts, carbon fiber rear diffuser, carbon ceramic brakes, carbon fiber side mirror housings and a fixed rear spoiler in carbon fiber. Exclusive and color-coordinated race-inspired exterior accent stripes. Gloss Light Green stripes when combined with Selenite Grey Magno exterior, or stripes in Matte Dark Grey with all other exterior colors. The unique accent stripes can also be omitted, if desired. In addition to the GT R PRO's exclusive new performance features and unique design, it also shares new features recently introduced across the refreshed 2020 AMG GT lineup. 2020 AMG GT Updates The new Mercedes-AMG GT models include a new dynamic side skirt, a new diffuser insert in the rear bumper, and a revised double-round tailpipe design. The AMG GT C models also receive a new rear diffuser, as well as a new double-trapezoid tailpipe design lending an even sportier look. The new light signature of the LED High Performance headlights emulates that of the new AMG GT 4-door Coupe and reinforces the overall AMG GT family connection. In addition to the already standard rear-view camera, a standard front camera has been added to aid in parking and low speed maneuvers. Updates to the new GT interior are even more impressive. The standard new 12.3" digital instrument cluster and larger 10.25" multimedia display enhance both the look and functionality of the interior. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also included as standard. The center console design now features innovative touch display buttons, presented for the first time in the AMG GT 4- Door Coupe. A new touchpad option also offers a new way to interact with the multimedia interface. The new AMG Performance steering wheels place an emphasis on driving dyanmics, and also integrate touch control buttons to control and navigate the instrument cluster and multimedia center displays. All models also receive the AMG steering wheel controls standard, consisting of a round control knob with an integrated display below the right-hand steering wheel spoke, and two display buttons below the left-hand steering wheel spoke. AMG Dynamic Select can be controlled via the right-hand control knob, and the selected setting will be shown in the integrated color LCD display. With exclusive design details, race-bred engineering, and track-tuned performance enhancements, the AMG GT R PRO reinforces AMG's brand promise of "Driving Performance." The AMG GT R PRO will be available in U.S. dealers by late 2019. Key data at a glance: 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO MSRP $199,650* Engine Handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo Displacement (cc) 3,982 Drive Config. Rear-Wheel Drive Performance 577 hp @ 6,250 rpm 516 lb-ft @ 2,100 - 5,500 rpm Transmission AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed 0-60 mph (sec) 3.5 Top speed (mph) 198 Availability Late 2019 *Prices exclude $995 destination and delivery charge.

    The N Koreans have been trying to improve their international image for decades and meeting with the US brings him legitimacy with other world leaders. Both Kim jong-un’s father and grandfather wanted Summits with our country. Now Jong-Un has no reason to negotiate anything else because they’ve gotten what they want without giving up anything. As far as our policy goes, we want them to eliminate nukes but the N. Koreans want US troops to leave the Korean Peninsula. In other words, they want complete capitulation of US interests in the Pacific. No way that should ever be on the table after we fought 3 wars there over the last 75 years to keep the peace. We sure as hell shouldn’t give that up. So what is Trump negotiating? Like I said they aren’t giving up the nukes and we already have sanctioned their regime for the past 25 years. What’s the strategy? Another year of sanctions isn’t going to break them.

    Right because dictators are all about good PR and winning over domestic media and voters. lol At the end of the day there are limited good options. The best one IMHO is to maintain a friendly dialogue while reinforcing our position that nukes need to be removed. They have enough traditional weapons to kill millions as is if they wanted. Economic isolation like we're pursing is an act of war and a gun to their head.

    From the side and from behind it looks awesome. The front however (IMO) is really, really ugly. Just like with the modern Continental or Bentayga models, these headlights just make it look like a sad deep sea creature. I get it that they want to have a continuation with the previous models and some sort of heritage design, but if heritage means ugly it's better to ditch it. I know a few people who said they'd never buy a Bentayga because it looks so awful.

    As I stated initially. It’s good PR for the dictator. He’s not giving up his nukes though. And we aren’t holding a gun to his head. Any attack on N Korea will end in all out war. N. Korea will Nuke S. Korea and Japan which is a global catastrophe. This is exactly why the foreign policy community is against our president meeting with Kim; it only gives the communist dictatorship legitimacy to be on the same stage as the president of the USA

    Pandering to the dictator while simultaneously holding a gun to his head is an effective negotiating tactic. The Clippers (yes, the crappy JV Los Angeles team) landed Both Kawhi and Paul George so I learned this last week anything is possible!

    It sure took the N55 a long time to get going but now we are seeing more cars in the 10's and some impressive results. This F22 M235i is the BigBoost Turbo shop car and it is putting up impressive dragstrip results to match its dyno output. 130.90 in the 1/4 mile is a milestone for the N55 platform and the fastest pass to date: This was achieved in 2000+ DA so there is still room to improve especially with that 60 foot time. What mods you ask? BigBoost Stage 3.3 turbo upgrade, full bolt ons, port injection, and an upgraded LPFP (low pressure fuel pump). Expect more details to be posted by @Juan@BigBoost-Billet Congratulations on the world record!

    If it was irrelevant why was it such a big deal especially to the North Koreans? It was a massive step and gesture.
