Thats a pretty common design for the bmw strut bars. it allows the bar to be removed easily so that its out of the way for working on the engine (not as much of an issue on the focus)

Given that front strut bars dont do anything but provide an arm rest for the person working under the hood i'd say thats just as good as any other.

New Cadillac ATS. Car and driver finally drove all models, waiting for the first drive to come out with the 2.0T, but in the overview it sounds like 0-60 in high 5s, and same mileage as the base ATS, so 22city/33hwy? RWD M6 sports sedan?

Morning all.

Went racing yesterday.. Was fun

Didn't drive G cuz of tires situation but Eric (fiesta driver) had a good idea of me just swapping the front tires on the front rims so the corded sides are on the inside and I should be able to at least safely drive around on the streets and what not.

Also Aumick with the angry STI is switching to 18x10's with 285's square and he's letting me use up the rest of his 255's on the 18x9's that he has. So I may be ordering extended lugs and spacers so those wheels fit my car. Going to test fit a wheel next weekend and see if I can get away with out it but we'll see. Eitherway It sounds like I have slicks I can use for the rest of this season.

Also also I drove a Supercharged Mini S in RTF yesderday and managed 4th in class out of 18 drivers. Not bad for never driving a mini before.
