    A very good friend of mine has an employee whose father in law....I know, I know it's one of THOSE stories..
    but to finish the story. My friends employee's father in law finally took possession of his new PCP Cat just
    a month ago. I had hoped to see the car very soon at one of our weekend "car guys" get togethers.

    My friend and I spoke on the phone last night when he wanted to ask how things are going with my car and
    the slipped crank pulley. I filled him in and then he told me that the one month old cat lost control in a curve
    and slammed into a tree. No one hurt, except the cat but it sounds like a pretty bad crash. The fact that no one
    was hurt along with the wreck a few weeks ago in Puerto Rico (car appears to have rolled) is good news to
    me as far as the survivability of these cars. I hate for anyone to crash but I'm happy when a bad crash ends
    with minor or zero injuries.

    There's one less cat in the world now but there's a hot motor for a project car!!!

    Sounds just like how the first Sublime was crashed an hour after the guy left the dealer

    As long as no one was hurt that's all it matters.

    A car can be replaced/rebuilt

    RIP fellow PCP Challenger. I nearly wrecked mine on the way home from the dealer. I gave it 75% gas at 60 MPH on a mildly crowded expressway with 10 miles on the ODO and 32 degrees outside. It went completely sideways and traction control saved my bacon. I have yet to give it full throttle since.

    Do you have a A8?
    I'm really curious as to how a A8 drives because by the sound of everyone who has one it makes my M6 sound somewhat tame.
