Why were the rubber bumpers so fat on US 911s? Are your drivers much worse than Europeans? Not just IMO, it's a really ugly part of the car , so I trust you can make it disappear!

Does the words 'Government Regulations' ring a bell.

yep , I know why the styling was changed against Porsche's wishes but do the fat bumperettes really give more protection than the narrow hipped Euro ones? Esp as you have the bumper shocks and all? Reminds me of what they did to the poor old MG in the 70s.
And btw nice vid MW! Interesting that there are no speed cams in your neighbourhood. Guess the cops are dealing with violent real crime like we see on TV.

8 mile high speed run through the Downtown LA Districts, all the way to the Music Center, and only one Cop? Magnus, it must have been Sunday morning at 5:00am! I live at the north end of the Santa Monica Mountains. If I did a lap around my roads at 56 mph for 300 meters I'd be pulled over and on my face with the cuffs on!

Very cool, at least to somebody who grew up close to there. Thanks

Great video and great car of course! You should pick up the suction cup mount if you don't already have it. You can mount it to any exterior body panel for some very cool exterior shots.
I use it on my boat with waves crashing on top of it with no problems.

Imagine in a modern 911 how fast you would have to go to have that much fun!

Thanks for the video!

Hey, HLS and other departments will NOT like those pics ... they will drag all occupants to the GitMO immediately with bag over the head and then do this

Don't believe for a minute that Magnus is out of control ... on the track... he's completely IN control.
