    Just watched this a few hours ago, great to see Jethro working with MT, although he’s certainly a step above anyone else they’ve ever hired recently, one might say MT might constrain him. Since launch it’s been clear that at least in terms of engineering, the CTS-V is nearly perfect. I’ve never heard anything but praise for the way it drives, especially around a track. However, it’s quite far behind (as tends to be the case) in terms of luxury, tech, interior, etc. And that’s one of the primary differentiator for these cars vs. something smaller or cheaper, not just the performance. The new E Class is such a quantum leap for this segment, just like the S-Class was when it was launched in 2013, everything else is just sort of...inadequate. Even the new 5 series seems to be a bit behind, as the new 7 is vs. the S. MB is just on another level from everyone else, and it shows. And to boot, their cars are even reliable now. Their slogan is in full effect, it seems. This E63 has the Edition One package, you can tell by the stitching & the paint and a few other things. You can buy an almost fully-loaded car for about 135k or so, still a lot more than the CTS-V but closer than this particular example is for what it’s worth. The E63 and CTS-V will probably be worth about the same after 12 months & 24 months, but after that the CTS will probably continue to fall more sharply. In perctange terms the AMG will beat you up badly but if you can afford it...eff it. It’s defintely worth the extra money, I think. The CTS will be easy to get more power out of, but I think we’re already seeing the AMG is too. And, the gearbox in the AMG seems to be light years ahead. I was always laughing out loud when GM tried to claim that this particular implementation of the ZF 8 speed would be “better than PDK” - not a hope in hell. It’s not even close, it just physically cannot be. You can even hear that it’s slower in the new M5 vs. the old DCT...moving to a torque converter just forces you to give up that razor-sharp response. Overall, the V is the better deal, but I’ve heard from some who own them and “regular” CTSs (which have the same interior basically) that some trim is already showing its age and wearing heavily. That’s just unacceptable in a six-figure car, especially when it starts off barely keeping up with the rest of the segment. Sure, it’s cheaper. And the money is well spent on the drivetrain, chassis, brakes, and general level of engineering. But you don’t buy this car to hot-lap around Big buy it to drive every day for 3-5 years, or more. And as always, the MB is just better at that. It’s an 8/10ths scale S63, and that’s about as good as anyone can ask for in regards to a car that you can buy for anything like “reasonable” money.

    It is the Lightning Network, it is an off-chain payment network. Said to significantly lower transfer fees and speed. There has been some successful tests done on the testnet recently. You will now see a lot of fud about the Lightning Network. It makes forks like Bitcoin Cash useless. BTC miners will be against it as well, it will lower congestion and fees, which is where they make money. It can also help decentralize BTC, LN nodes will be run staked with capital. The nodes will collect fees, much less than current on chain BTC fees. So new players will coming with capital and runs LN nodes. Miners will lose some of their power. Now, it needs to work in real time...for that all to come true.

    It went to $9k flat. Don't know why I didn't pull the trigger but no point crying about it now. There are some developments apparently coming for Bitcoin. What, why, and how I don't know.

    It dipped to 9k? I guess I missed that. Also, I have no idea what Lightning is. But I've read somewhere that Bitcoin doesn't have some features other coins do. So that might be one of them?

    Why all of these home built M3 wagons of all a sudden? Who knows but while BMW does not seem to think there is a market guys are building their own versions. The other day BimmerBoost shared an E91 M3 wagon with an S65 V8 but this is an F81 with the S55 twin turbo 3.0 I6. Which one do you prefer? It's hard to choose but it is not hard to admit this is an awesome build. Considering just how awesome it is, where are more details? All we have are a few photos and some minor details. Apparently SMV Repair in the UK did the work: Looks like the car was tuned by BimmerBoost vendor Evolve Automotive. Time for some videos of this beast in action!

    Any of you guys mining what pools do you find most profitable? Going to experiment single pool vs miningpoolhub profit switching and autoexchange vs nicehash. Some people say they make 10-20% more with nicehash and the other half say the opposite. Terry@BMS ?

    The JRZ's sound awesome but... 7k? That's more than double everyone else.
