Re: WHERE ARE ALL THE S/C M5's?

i've been wondering when the dinan cars will be hitting the streets.
We've heard from Rob, i think i'd heard that Abdulla will have his car this coming week. Not sure if the the other car is out of AA yet.

I've also heard that dinan has a list of people, yet i haven't heard of anyone on this board.

Well as for an update on the cars that left www.Discovery-Automotive.com.

Rob has been driving his, he told me the story of how he has to fire her up and get out of the neighborhood ASAP so as not to awaken or upset them. He then shared of a rode trip to Dallas he made not long ago......as I recall he said that it was a 12 hour round trip. He also said that he had no problems until the next morning when he fired her up and got an SES light....not supercharger related, apparently something to do with the vent system on his gas tank. A problem that he shared that he has had many times ... As for Abdulla's, well I fly out in a few hours to had him the keys in Bahrain........

Now to Bloch's M5 and it leaving AA, I understand that it left and within only a few days the car was returned to AA with the clutch destroyed. At the moment I think that it remains idle at AA while Bloch deals with various people to see who might be willing to pay to replace this clutch....... this seems weird that he should go through 2 clutches in so few miles....... I drove her well over a thousand miles, numerous dyno pulls and never a sign of a problem..... oh well.

And then lastly, I have just completed another supercharged Z8 and she will be delivered to her excited owner shortly after my return from Bahrain.

Take care

I am anxious, nervous, and excited all wrapped in a very tight package at the moment. As for the travel time, thanks for reminding me……… and then I will be turning around and doing it all over again.

Abdulla, I am very excited for you and looking forward to spending a few days with you and your friends.

In 9 hours I will be heading towards the plane to begin the trip….see you soon.

Interesting... two destroyed clutches with little driving? From different companies... different installers... at that point, one has to look at the person behind the wheel. Smells like abuse or just not knowing how to drive stick that well.

Glad to hear things are going well with Rob's car. Hopefully Abdulla's goes as smoothly.

Re: WHERE ARE ALL THE S/C M5's?

Guys (Rob here...over at josh's house right now)

My car is running pretty good...had some fuel tank vent issues right now. Not to be hiding anything, im still working with bill to get rid of a cold start issue that creeps in now an again more than likely due to the capacity of my cats.

other than that...thats about it. Ive been kinda visiting the board lately but not posting as ive had alot of personal issues that need to be resolved first and formost.

1/2 of the Southern Renegades....

I just love the smell of JP-5 in the morning
