does any american car truly make a car designed to compete besides the ats though?

it seems to be a foreign car game.

The mustang is the only other possible car that would be in the same 'class' in terms of sporty car, but obviously is lacking on the luxury side and plus no sedan option so I doubt it really counts..

ATS is the only 'merica option for sport luxury sedan

I set my back pack on the passenger seat of Mark's Audi A4 and the seat belt chime went off.

He also sets his speedometer to chime when you go over 75 mph. I didn't know how to disable it....

Edit: Mark is seriously considering the ATS as his next company car!

press/hold the CHECK button until you see the mph with a slash through it pop up on the dash.

at least thats how you do it on Courtneys B7

edit:

"Press the CHECK button for at least 1 second when the vehicle is moving at a speed above 3 MPH. The display will show the warning symbol crossed through to confirm that the speed limit has been cleared"


and re-enabling it happens the exact same way so you can turn it back on after your done having fun with it to re enable it you have to be going the speed you want it to be set at. sometimes I set Courtneys super low when I give it back to her lol

I could, wonder what that will do with the new airbag sensors that adjust based on weight, etc. I know Roush and Recaro both have to recalibrate when changes are made to a seat.

I'm not sure? on focus we did it was like 05 and i dont think air bags were touched. When pricing out for lincoln with cloth seats i wasnt told anything about air bags either. i knew cps(chicago parts and sound) would still package for $450ish in lincoln.


Also not for power but lincoln mks is compared to cadilac

It looks like I'm keeping the car for a while longer, but next time I make it down that way we can discuss it.
