    Re: New York Auto Show Impressions

    Great pictures Wonderbar.

    I went to the show.  I am always disappointed that NYC Auto Show does not attract everyone's best.  No Ferrari, no Lamborghini, none of the after-market companies.  I was really hoping to see RUF.

    Some of my impressions.  The Mclaren looks much nice in the flesh than it does on paper.  I think it will look best in dark colors.

    I really liked the new BMW 6 series 4 door (actually the new 2 door is much nicer than the series it replaced)

    Spent some time in the truck session.  I love the Ford Raptor - I think it will shortly become my summer fun vehicle.

    Good looking 20" rims:new york auto show 2012 and  memorial 050.jpg

    How small are those calipers???


    Thanks for the pictures!


    All parts of the brakes are too small! Calipers, discs, this just looks silly!

    The unpleasant trend of rims getting bigger and bigger makes brakes, which are fine with 18" wheels, look like girlie brakes. Smiley


    I agree with you. The 991 with 19" wheels looks very adequate and much nicer than the 991S with the 20".

    At least on the Boxster you are not obliged to go for this large diameter.

    We have to get used to this new aesthetic, a motorcycle-like relationship between wheel and brake diameters...

    An 84 hour endurance race won with a Sportomatic! angry

    For the under 30 folks, that's like an automatic transmission's torque converter attached to a manual 4 speed.

    It certainly prevents any single driver in the line up from "frying" the clutch. sad

    An item on my bucket list, still need to get first hand experience.

    Never. Either smaller rims or PCCB/CCM for me. Smiley
