Look cool? OK I respect that taste are divided. For me personally this is a clear step over to the bad taste tuning. The tow hook you keep in the car for anything but track use. And even then I do question the need of mounting it before its needed... Anyway play with your tow hooks if you want! Just make other 1M look better. ;-)

Amazing. Truly amazing. Love everything about it... And the tow hook! Stop hatin' on the tow hook. When you use it just once it all becomes worth it.

Wow! If you squint you get shadows of E36 M3 in there. Love it. Sick build too.. Not sure I'd pour quite so much money into a 1M myself, but props all the same.

That wireless Akra system is slick! I didn't know you could purchase it with valves. Makes sense for a catless setup.

DO lose the tow hook to achieve visual perfection.

Powerbeast, is it possible to get some pictures for my background? I'm using a picture of the white one now (hope you don't mind). If you can 1920x1080 would be awesome! By the way, this is the best 1M I have seen. Thank you sire.

Do I dare to ask what your tuning have cost to date? I do see why as you are using it for track use. Again a job very well done.

Don't give them any crazy ideas! Soon we will see pictures of "Einser M" and "powerbeast" with tow hooks in the noose and nipples on the forum! Lets tune the driver to match the car! ;-) ;-) ;-)

PS. I will not comment on tow hooks in the future. You know my taste and I will let everyone else have theirs. Sorry was not a crusade and not here to offend the "tow hookers". ;-)

Couldn't help it!

And also a message for you; even if you think you wouldn't like piercing on nipples (or whatever) would you hold yourself getting close to one (or a pair) just because it is with a piercing? So, I stand by my analogy, like the piercing telling you the "holder/owner" is unusual therefore more interesting, not the hook itself, the tow hook gives us the same message. And we know that Powerbeast is unusual

Or we need another subject matter.

To be honest. I have actually had a piercing. In the eyebrow... Like 15 years ago. Had to remove it when I started working as it was not widely accepted at the time. Sorry if this is very OT but just had to... So guess I liked the attention of being odd also... ;-)
