EP600 vs EP500

I have noticed that both the Bridgstone Ecopia EP600 and the EP500 are offered for the 19" wheel. I currently have the EP600 all season that came on the car but was wondering is the EP500 would offer any real difference in performance over the EP600? Has anyone tried both tires yet?

Re: Any tips instructions on removing pillar covers & headli

I removed all of that when I upholstered the headliner and the a pillars. To get the A pillar covers off you have to pop the "Airbag" emblem off and then remove the bolt underneath. After than the cover just pops off. The C pillar cover is attached the same way. To remove the sunvisors you will have...

Re: More videos reveal BMW i3’s most intimate details

How legal is such a reverse engineering? Imagine all this R&D you poured all those resources into... only to have cheap chinese knock offs and other manufacturers happily exploiting your ingenuity.

Re: Can REX be added aftermarket?

More of a hypothetical question, but let's be realistic too. Can it be done by a qualified mechanic? I.e. buy the scooter engine, installed properly, reflash the code..
