Next sighting will be this weekend: Josh driving his 90 through SoHo naked, 'cept for his new dress shoes, 'cause he hit 7000. Seven more to go, Josh. Weren't you supposed to do a lap dance or something?

C'mon guys, help him out. Someone else call him "idiotic" or some s--t ...

They're not just shoes... They're hooker pumps... The stilettos were getting stuck in the floor mats...

nice looking white Defender in Madison WI this morning around 8:30am, Beltline & Mineral Point headed towards Middleton. Only saw it from behind so I couldn't tell if it was a 110 or 90...haven't seen one around Madison before...

One of my colleagues saw Doug's 130 near NapTown. After he gave me the description I was certain it must have been him. He knows I own a 2A so he thought it was me at first.

Yep. Was there with the 130. Not many 130's on 12.50 35's around. Had Tony's Customs exhaust in Glen Burnie install a straight pipe on it while there. No appreciable sound difference but certainly seems to breath better.

Interesting...'jefferson' used them for his 90 not long ago, and I was planning to have them work the exhaust on my 90 in the near future as well. I've heard their prices are reasonable, and they do the work while you wait?

Is there nobody in Northern Va? I need some work done on mine as well but would rather stay on this side of the DMZ.

Doug, my 300 is fitted with a straight pipe where the center resonator was. You don't hear much in the cabin, but when you're driving next to a wall or a fence w/ windows open, under load and the sound bounces off......or you let somebody drive it and listen to it when you're outside, it's definately louder for sure! Only when under load though and it's definately not anywhere near obnoxious levels.

Yep. Tony has three guys and himself. They knock it out while you wait. They did my green 110, the black disco, and now the 130. On the back side of an industrial park and always busy. One of those "local knowledge" things. Straight pipe was $225 2.5 pipe with no really restrictive bends, the do what you ask them to do. Re-used the factory flange that bolts to the downpipe. Always happy when I leave there. Took about an hour

yeah been there done that. This was on a 130- no resonator or muffler now. The exhaust is far enough away from the passenger cabin that the tone is minimally different. Keep in mind this is on a truck running 12.5 x 35's so tire noise is greater than engine/exhaust. I had some others stand and listen and its no where near as obnoxious as what many are running on their nas 90's. The turbo vanes pretty much quiets down the exhaust note and then 12 feet of pipe cures the rest. @ idle it is no louder than my brothers td5 with stock exhaust. Definately improved low rpm torque

Was it catch and release, or did you take it home?

One of my friends from HS lived in that house up on the hill behind there - spent a lot of time in that field in 1988 and 1989.. One of the biggest private lots in Annandale.

Just now passed a nice looking ROW white 110 on Queens Blvd in NYC, heading east. Anyone here? Must be the only time I've wanted my MTA express bus to slow down so that I could get a better look. :-)
