Interesting they didnt have taller diffs available, for a bit more punch off the line.


Have seen golden bonnet stars and boot badges on cars and just thought it was people runing their cars.

Absolutely! Tacky, tasteless, cheapening. Makes a Benz look like a genitally-challenged hoon's Honda!

Whats a "Gleason-Torsen" diff?  I would LOVE a 3.06 dif in my car - sounds perfect combination of off the line sprint speed and highway cruising!
