I have noticed that most BMW owners will feel most comfortable in a Audi product if they decide to switch... not sure why as most performance Audis are awd... maybe the styling works or maybe it's the cockpit feel and appearance. I've had both but have also thought about MB... something keeps me from switching, I dunno if its the old man stereotype or just the styling but the new CLS 53 is fire.

BTW, nice hulk... i am keeping my eye out on a Panda SS daytona to co exist with my Sub date... somehow I think I will be waiting a while lol.

Most of the good counterfeiters have bought and studied the real thing and then get to making them. They know exactly what the differences are, and they dont go on to car forums to find the differences....
ok.

I just do not feel good driving AMG. Its not fun how M model is. With AMG, I feel you have to calm and fast. With M, its wild and fast

Good luck on Daytona SS. Very hard to find them though.

Mostly took this to try the portrait mode of my new Samsung Note 9. Still have the XS Max but wanted to try Android for a change as I got bored of the iPhone.

How? The coke bezel fits without modification? So a pepsi insert would fit too? And you put anti-reflection coating on a genuine watch?

the 16750 and 16710 are the same case. So a GMT bezel fits on the explorer. Any of the 16710 inserts will fit in the 16710 bezel.

AR coated crystals are the shit. Much better than the OEM glaretastic crystals

That's beyond cool. I always wanted the PAN-AM pepsi (which is more than I will likely make in my life and impossible to find) due to the contrast of the white face and red/blue bezel...so that would actually be the perfect workaround!

doesn't the explorer II have a 42mm case? and the 40mm coke bezel fits on it?
