I was riding alongside one of those cars one day and the driver kept getting on the gas and immediately backing all the way off. Its was making a ton of snap crackling pop noises on decel.
Nice looking car though.

He turned on the Dynamic Exhaust. Those zany Jaguar engineers set up Dynamic exhaust so that it opens the butterfly valves in the exhaust to make more noise and adds a little gas and changes some of the engine settings when you let off the gas to get that crackling pop. It's addictive.

You can drive around in quiet mode.

I didn't think it was a nice sound at all. That sort of thing is weird though. I always hated Harley guys who would rev their bike under a bridge and through tunnels and such. But then one day I rented a Harley and I found I was doing all that obnoxious stuff also. I learned I was just as big an assholle as everyone else

Those Jags have an exhaust note that just sounds fucking awesome in today's age of "everything must be so quiet that we're going to play artificial engine noise through your speakers to make up for the lack of rumble coming from your pipes".

Also got some Mother VLR. This stuff works great for interiors: no slick oily feeling, no glossy fake shine, cleans and dries easily and evenly.

The downfall is it smells like a pool locker room. Any one have any better suggestions or good suggestions for car fragrances?

PS: there’s a 7 flags car wash in Martinez. $6.00 for 20 minutes and it has everything from pressure washer, brush, soap, etc. easily best $6 car wash around.

I thought the gray box at the left end of it looked familiar though I've never seen an actuator connected to so much spaghetti before.

Definitely a little messy. Tough to tell, but I think it's a six function with position feedback. The hard part will be the missing controller, so you can remove that gray box and connect the hoses to one of those hand lever manifolds you see on tractors/forklifts, or see what's in the box and try to emulate whatever signal the servos/valves require. I'd really like to try and do the latter.

That's one of the big ways my inner 5 year old convinced me to buy the car.

Which engine does your new ride have?

Thats the sort of car I'd be interested in if I were in the market. The grand touring machines make much more sense in the real world over a sports car IMO.
