Greetings everyone,

James from Houston, TX here. I'm picking up my car on Wednesday from the dealer - a 2017 black Abarth with the Brembo brakes and Recaro seats. Really looking forward to the car.

I'm previously a VW/Audi guy before a brief 2-year Subaru BRZ stint. I work for a cloud-computing security company, but used to work at a Euro shop rebuilding engines for BMW, VW, Audi, Mercedes... I'm very technical and have done most everything in regards to vehicles - save rebuilding transmissions.

After lots of cars with emissions deletes, tunes, drastic suspension changes, one with a large aftermarket turbo setup, and everything in-between I'm ready to go a more streamlined route.

Looking forward to being part of the community and hope I can contribute - please feel free to reach out for anything!

Thanks - James
