I do not doubt it. I never assumed you were actually parking like that. Sorry if it sounded like that.

Oh, all good! I didn't think you meant it negatively anyways.

I posted some of these in the VS-Forged group buy thread, but I love the new look so much I had to post here too.
iPhone photos of a dirty car in the rain, but... the new stance and 21" wheels are exactly what I was looking for.





I am very pleased with the wheels, and love the larger tires in the rear.
Many thanks to unhingd for putting together the group buy for these wheels

Nice shots. Hope you had the parking brake on! Hate to see you become a "U-Boat Commander".

Not sure we have an active "spotted in pop culture" post, but there's always the internet movie database for cars: https://www.imcdb.org/

Anyhoo... spotted a lovely R in the show "Sneaky Pete", episode 5 or 6 or so. It's all about conmen, cons, etc.... it's a fine show.

Also, OT commentary about something I just realized. One of my favorite films of all time (as well as the holy grail Morricone score) was Dangeriabolik.
For all the years I watched, I had never consciously noted the rip roarin' e-types Diabolik drove (Two!). If you've never seen the film, do yourself a favor and do so.

With the wider tires there is a chance... I would have to take a 100' run at it though.

I originally saw this film when I was a kid in Micronesia with subtitles, was looking for if for years but couldn't remember the name then about a year or so ago I ran into it again. Got a huge kick out of watching it again. Had to buy the DVD, it was kind of problematic to find. Often thought it would be fun to try and build an XKE like the James Bond AM (given Bond was originally supposed to be in an E-Type but they didn't have a car for the movie and so the got an AM). Anyway thanks for posting, was fun to see this when I got to the airport this morning.

EJag66 No 'go-faster' stripes on the centre line of the FT ?

btw : love the looks of the orange coupe ; it keeps the Britisch Heritage tradition of marking its turf...

My son proposed an RS also, as its only half the price of the P300 and incredabilly fast.

But it did not fit in my boyhood dream of once owning a Jaguar coupe...

Sorry, I should've put what the old car was.

I had a 2013 Focus St (stage 3 full bolt ons). I was considering upgrading to an RS but I felt it was going to be too similar to the ST so I went with the F Type R

Well, no matter what, you had your fun I guess. Many speeding tickets or 'reckless driving' citations ? Here the police goes ape when you spin your wheels at a traffick light : "reckless driving" .. ..idiots.

I do miss driving a manual car. Much more engaging than an automatic. Funny enough, the only ticket I ever got was for having an aftermarket exhaust because I downshift as a cop was driving past. The car in front of me was going too slow and I didn't want to cut off the cop...

I wasn't aware aftermarket Exhausts weren't allowed in Florida. It wasnt a cheap ticket either... $125 I think. Really?

Fines from € 100 to € 1000 or up to € 4000 if they take you to court. Revoking license up to 6 months, even if you are stationary...

Do you guys have organized events where you can push your cars?
For instance, in Texas we have what is called the "Texas Mile" a few times a year. It's all organized, safe and a great way to try your car flat out to the limit. It's also a fantastic event for all car nuts as you can see all brands actually doing what they were designed for.
Both cars and drivers have to pass inspection prior to being admitted to the starting line.
