I go to the club often with the 7 which is lowered in the front by about 1.5 inch, no problems at all. Off course take it slow. Also let me know if you want to do the dual exhaust conversion.

The stage 1 makes the car very quick 4.3 0-60, from 5.0 stock. Now that stage 2 is installed it shows that it was kinda sluggish out of the hole with stage 1. I believe stage 2 takes it to 503hp/ 580lb ft. I have not tested 0-60 yet but it breaks loose in first and second gear now and pulls much harder. Well worth the $500 extra.

I was very happy to be in the B7 so I could get away from the Jets that day as fast as possible. At least they redeemed themselves (somewhat) against Buffalo. Are you a season ticket holder?

I am, plan on selling tickets for remaining games. I am in the nose bleeds, so not trying to deal with that wind when it is cold. How about you?

I'm in he Coaches club, so I don't have to worry about the breeze. I'll make the next game, but I gave the Giants game away as it's xmas eve. Maybe I'll see you at the one of the home playoff games....LOL....like that would ever happen.

I park in the Green lot E next to the stadium. If I'm going to be sitting in a car for up to two hours each way, might as well be an Alpina.

We paid $13K each for the PSL....supposedly they are going for 425K. We'll see. the $700 ticket price is simply a rip off.
