what are you talking about performance and comfort? there are several cars that come
stock that can be easily changed to 350+ HP. i have rode in several 350+ HP cars and
they have all of the comfort and performance. the new C5 corvettes come with about 345
HP stock and it is real easy to bump them up to 400+ HP. they are comfortable and
nothing is sacrificed. some mercedes and the new jaguar come with over 300HP and they
can also be bumped to over 350+ HP easy with no sacrifice in the ride at all. isn't the
cadillac norstar a 300HP engine and that also can be bumped up to 350+ HP with no
sacrifice in the ride at all. if you want the comfort keep your gas foot off the floor
next time you are in a 350+ HP car. my mustang is about 350HP and i have all of the
comfort in the world and yes i do take it on vacation. and i know allot of other people
that take there "high performance" cars on vacation.

i am not picking a fight i am just stating my opinion about this post and i bet this
post wont make it past the moderators.

P.S. i can still hear my sound system when i drive my car and it is over 350 HP

Subject: Question Re: Taillight Mod

Options would include (without drilling exterior assembly:)

1) Slim LED assembly that attaches to side mirror assembly at 
your prefered location with doublestock dable. Wire can then be 
run into housing or along side of housing. LED's are super 
bright yellow / orange. These run about $50+ Check EBAY.

2) LED Mirror signals. This involves removing factory mirror 
glass and replacing with aftermarket mirror with LED's mounted 
behind mirror. $75+ Check JC Whitney oe EBAY.

When I ordered new tires from Tirerack.com they just slapped a 
shipping label on the tire itself and then wrapped tape around the 
tire and the label so it wouldn't peel off. They had two tires 
strapped together. UPS will accept it this way.
