Not sure why my videos are still in "youtube edit lala land" but they are pretty choppy still. They don't appear this way when I recorded them, so be patient I guess. I took another video this morning. Cold start, approximately 0C temp. Tried to hold phone same as whitecat. Here it is. I think mine is a little more "rattly" still.

And yes, the engine bay is disgusting. It's way down the list for things to do. It'll get cleaned at some point. Likely in the summer months when it's a bit warmer.

Don't Amsoil salesmen have territories that you are infringing upon?
What has me perplexed is beamertruck stated he "needs to increase his Amsol sales to pay his tuition", yet in the past few weeks he has stated he owns........

1) X5 4.4i

2) E60 V10 (sold)

3) E36 M3

4) Audi A6

5) Lamborgini Gallardo

6) Challanger SRT8

7) '80 Ferrari F40 (thought '87 was the first production year)

8) Merc GL

9) Ford Raptor

10) F350 6.4L twin turbo

11) Freightliner Classic (custom painted)

Seems he should be able to sell a vehicle or two to finance his studies.

I noticed this as well, seems we might to have Scooby Doo get to the bottom of this. The Gallardo comment really perplexed me, because I do recall him saying becoming an Amsoil dealer was helping get through engineering school I think?

I do use amsoil to help pay my tuition, i actually do make a decent amount just dont really talk to much bout it. I actually do alot of sales of Amsoil, usually product sells itself, most people tho dont know about it which is why i promote it quite a bit. I drive a truck, do plowing, auto repair and a few other things which is where the money for these cars and such comes from. I dont spend money unless i know i can get a return on investment which is why i didnt sponsor right away and am only paying partial to start. Also alot of vehicles i own or have owned i usually get a great deal on and then flip for profit. You guys probably think im crooked or whatever, but i pride myself on being honest with customers and making sure theyre satisfied, ive done alot of buy backs and refunds just so the customer can be happy and because of that they come back. For auto repair, i will sometimes fix things just for cost of parts just so i recieve their continued business. I appologize guys, il keep it straight from here on. Btw RB i wasnt able to order the strps, hopefully il get to it tonight.

BTW the GL is sold, the ferrari is an 88, i thought i mentioned that, both the F40 and the E36 are actually shared between me and my cousin, theyre mostly his but i put 1/3 down on the purchase and i do the repairs and maintenance. You forgot the 1970 chevelle btw, oh and the A6 is my dads, i do use it on occasion.

Thank you for clarifying. I'm well aware that you can buy less than A+ condition exotics for a song if you know how to repair and can flip for a profit, the Gallardo doesn't really faze me because if you bought it salvaged and rebuilt it you probably got it for $25k up front as an example.

Either way, way too many toys for me to fix, "aint nobody got time for that"

The gallardo rear ended someone, needed some body work, frame was good just scratched up. They never reported it so i fixed it up and its still got a clean title and runs strong! I do have a tendency to sometimes leave out important details. My fault, il also quit the sales pitching, hopefully regain some support here.

Acknowledging it is hard to include all the details, a detail that should not have been included is---my--(what ever vehicle referenced) when it is not yours or has been sold.

Good luck establishing credibility. From my perspective it is going to be a daunting task, especially when you are the only member that I have ever seen advertise a product or service in their signature.

Dont think theres a rule preventing Vendors from putting their products in their signature, so dont know ehat your going on about now. Also im pretty sure this threads about LVPs request for idle videos so lets try to stay on topic there, anything off topic should be discussed in the lounge i think or in a different thread.
