looks real nice but i would be somewhat concerned with carbon monoxide creeping in the underbody as it has no place to escape.
dont idle to long with it for safety sake

i wish it came out the sides. that may be a future mod. the tip doesn't go straight it's now angled down and an extention welded on to make it point straight down to the ground.

Cool. I may have to give it a try. My hole back there is about half again as big as it should be. And the tip on my muffler still carries some of the melted plastic.

I'm not sure James. The debadging and now the visual lack of a tailpipe - it almost looks naked and hasn't reached pubity yet. I'll have to look at it for a while and really decide. However, youi've clearly created a sense of balance between the rather visually standout interior compared to a visually simplified exterior. Keep it up. The sky is the limit. BTW - Did you see this article about the fact that when all is factored in, the xB is the most fuel efficient car on the road - interesting

thanks guys. alan that article was very interesting. i had no idea that the phaeton was that expensive. someone in my neighborhood has one i always wondered what the heck it was. as for the car looking naked just wait until i'm done with the hatch!!!:eek: also my new wing is on so it shouldn't look as naked now either.
