        I really like the new BBS wheels, I'd love to have some of those, finally they're making a new wheel. I love the pic of the M3 and the F1.

          Is Mayfair considered to be a part of London? Reason I ask is because I was in London a couple of weeks ago and saw a McLaren dealership in Park Lane, right down the street from the brand new Marriott that I was staying in. Park Lane seems to be London's version of an exotic-car dealership street as they had a Porsche dealer, a Jag dealer exclusively selling their R cars, and a few others I can't remember. When I was there I also saw this guy in a Murcielago absolutely tearing through town, which is something I have yet to see in the Suburbs of D.C. where there are a few running around. Needless to say it was very cool, both the trip and the automobiles I saw when I was there.

            Hot shit.. but damn if i had an F1 I'd so be installing LM air dam/wing/wheels like right away. Plus bigger brakes, and an LM motor (gotta have 8500rpm). Hey if you can afford an F1, you can afford to mod it :evil:

              Alex, the guy has three. That 94, a 96, and an LM. That one is just his "road McLaren."

                Chris, are you kidding? 3??? Damn! I'd have to have an LM, and he's got an LM and two more, that's nuts!

                  It's insane. They don't belong to Will Turner, but one of his drivers. The owner is originally from England, where the other two are kept, as the OBDI 94 was the easiest to Americanize. There was a writeup recently on the guy in Roundell, but I think I tossed the issue. :(

                    Chris, i wasn't aware that there was sucha a thing as OBDI on the F1 motor. Are you sure about that? The US modifications didn't mess with the motor..

                      Hmmm. I'm not really in the know, but my previous post was a direct quote from Will himself - 96+ cars are OBDII, as (I thought) are all street-legal 96+ automobiles in America. The McLaren is no different, and that 94 even had the same diagnostic pot as any 94 BMW. Doug pointed it out and we laughed about it.

                          Heh. I even have it in one of the pics:

                          What I wouldn't kill to plug my Peake code reader into that every now and then. Not to mention that any time there is a fault, you just connect a line to the onboard modem and the car will talk directly to McLaren technicians. What a car.

                            I read that article in Roundell and a company here I think specially Americanized the car for him. I think the one that he has over here is a 94 or something before they had OBII because they couldn't put OBII in it.
