Actually, not the most offensive I've ever seen: that prize goes to the 105 series GTV someone had done this too.

Usually I can live with the Itasha thing, but there are limits.

Well, Lamborghini was a tractor maker before Ferrari told him to go stuff himself.

To be fair, Lamborghini once made an SUV before... and it was kind of epic.

Though, admittedly, probably better for being utter madness at the time, rather than sound marketing.

Yeah lol. There was one comment that said something like: "If they hit a bump and those doors close, that guy is going to have his brain sucked out his ass."

Ferro: Could someone explain to me why Q-Branch has a nearly fifty-thousand Euro transaction to their account? Or why Allison McDonnell and Fiona Loreto are absent from the compound for the next 72 hours?

Heinrich: I heard the two of them babbling about acquiring something for 'evaluation purposes' involving 'shredding tyres' and 'obscene American horsepower'. They booked a flight to Detroit last night and left this morning.

Ferro: I see no one at all heeded my request to keep those two separated.

Valentina: (turning a worried expression toward her handler) So, papa... why again are you driving a modern car? Don't you know that our enemies might be able to do the same things I can do?

Giancarlo: Don't worry, baby girl... First thing I did after buying the Fiesta was to modify the ECU and all the other on-board systems. Ford's Sync isn't all that interesting, anyway. Oh, and I removed the tire pressure monitors from the wheels as well, just for good measure.

Valentina: I noticed that much already. But... um... don't you think we should at least tell the others to do the same? I know I'm not supposed to monitor them, but I always feel strange when I can detect their cars when I walk by.

Giancarlo: ...You do remember that you're not supposed to spy on the other handlers, right?

Valentina: I... S-sorry papa! I-I didn't m-mean... I c-can't help it t-that... (violent retching, followed by a thud as she collapses to the ground)

Giancarlo: (sighing) Well, there goes another set of clothing. Guess it's a good thing Priscilla loves shopping for her.

Monty: *with a sigh* Remind me to double check the Bluetooth is locked down next we're in Rome will you?

I presume Valentina can do Bluetooth as well?

...and I'm sure there has to be a way of spoofing those keyless entry/start transponders (dislike those things, I like a bit of positive feedback to know the car is locked) without having to re-key a fob directly from the OBD port.

As an aside: tyre pressure monitors work on measuring the disparity between wheel speeds rather than directly on air pressure. A flat tyre has a smaller rolling radius than a fully inflated one, and thus will have to spin faster at the same road speed compared to its fellows, which is what the monitor measures... which is why, in order for it to work, you have to check the tyres first and set it so it has baseline to measure from. It uses the same set of hardwired sensors that also do things like traction/stability control, ABS, cruise control, etc, which would make it very difficult to disable them without removing all the others (and which is also why, when one gets a flutter, the whole dash lights up like a Christmas tree).

At least, that's how it is for BMW (1-series coupe, Australian market), mileage with other manufacturers/locales may vary.

Hm. A handler's choice of a high-performance car, either for pursuit or evasion, becomes nothing but vanity if his cyborg is capable of turning off the bad guys' engines - or shifting their transmissions into reverse at eighty miles per hour - just by thinking about it, wouldn't you say?

Regarding modern cars' tire pressure monitors, they can be used actively hack a target's car or passively track their car. Indeed, I (plan to) have Valentina do exactly such a thing in a later chapter in my story.

Also, a handy video doing the same thing (though with unfortunately bad audio in this episode):

Huh... that's a very different (and more advanced) system to what I'm used. As described before, that runs off the wheel rotational sensors and is hardwired into the car (and just lets you know if one tyre has lost pressure).

I do note the one described here is a US mandated system so, if you were planning to use it in Europe, I would double check it's standard there as well... or at least fitted to whichever vehicle you were planning on having Valentina hack (or, I guess, invoke artistic license). It's certainly not something I'm used to seeing here, even on new cars and, doing a bit of reading, only really seems to be sold after-market... mostly for 4x4 enthusiasts.

Lets be honest here: picking a high-performance/specialist car, no matter how many real-world excuses are made, is always going to have a hint of vanity involved at any level.  Razz 

Fortunately for the Padania (and the chance to have exciting car chases), I suspect Valentina's the only one so far with the requisite EW capability.

Kisk and I saw it while we were catching lunch.  Lambos are cool. Seahawks are cool. Lambos in Seahawks livery?  Not cool.

I distinctly recall seeing a sports car (either a Lambo or a Ferrari; probably the latter) regularly occupying a reserved parking spot in one of the older shopping malls in my hometown. It was probably owned by one of the mall's bosses or something.

I think my initial reaction was "What dumb-ass would buy a sports car and drive it here (the Philippines) when our roads are holey and not a single driver on the street gives a flying fuck?"

My next reaction was to fight down the temptation to ruin the finish with a coin Razz

I'll take a picture of it the next time I run across it.

Speaking of hacking cars, for those who missed it:
Hackers Remotely Kill a Jeep on the Highway

Fortunately for Fiat Chrysler, the pair in question gave the ethical heads up and due duration for a patch to be released (and the car company listened unlike, say, Seagate) before announcing their zero day. In the long run, this is probably actually a good thing for Fiat Chrysler. If they play their cards right, they've got a bit of a head start over an industry that really doesn't seem all that savvy on the electronic security front.

I presume the yellow banding designates a practice round, else I doubt someone would be standing two feet from it to snap a picture. LaughingLaughing

Eh...no, it means the exact opposite.

At least that's true with US munitions (ex-weapons loader here, USAF).
There's numerous colors to indicate the explosive yield but yellow is a live round...practice munitions would be marked with blue.

It is indeed a live round. The picture, I believe, was actually taken in Syria.

Gawd. Should have remembered that 'dummy/practice' banding is blue. Senility creeping in, no doubt.

The guy was still a nutcase for getting that close to it, tho.

That guy is lucky beyond all belief. I wonder where that picture was taken though (in other words, who owns that mortar bomb).

I've also just realised that's a DB5 parked behind.
