I bought some of these to extract my phone from between my seat and the transmission tunnel.

Speaking nonsense to a Therapist cost money but Forums are free and you even get responses. Win win for Ludwig.

But therapy sometimes helps. So far he has just kept getting worse.

Let's review.

I mentioned I bought a set of ETorx, since they are pretty rare to see on cars.
Several people tell me they see Torx all the time, and that I am an idiot.
I tell these people I said E-Torx, not Torx. They literally do not know the difference.
I show proof of my German car, but it's dismissed as elaborate fakery via a fantasy detailing business.
Conclusion: Ludwig is a troll.

Oh, and you have people here who jack cars by the pinch weld,
think that tracking a car involves bending body panels and hard launches,
modding cars increases value of cars,
dealerships have great prices on parts.

This place is like an alternate reality of rampant ignorance.
It actually makes sense that I am an idiot.

I'm glad we can both agree on one thing. But please explain that whole thing about "driving at redline"... was it a split second or continuously driving at redline for more than 10-20 seconds at a time? I'm supremely perplexed by this.

Several people tell me they see Torx all the time, and that I am an idiot. Both accurate
I tell these people I said E-Torx, not Torx. They literally do not know the difference. We are all well aware of the difference and there were even examples show.
I show proof of my German car, but it's dismissed as elaborate fakery via a fantasy detailing business. [B]Showed "proof" of A German car. I provided equally viable evidence of my supermodel wife [B]
Conclusion: Ludwig is a troll. Again accurate

modding cars increases value of cars,

How is it even possible that you believe every single other person is wrong and dumb and you are correct?

Edit: what I'm trying to get at is, why all the hate?
Seemed like a pretty reasonable topic. I love buying new tools.

The Ludwig dude comes off harsh but from what I've read he has made pretty good sense. everyone else seems too upset at being called out on their "home turf" on the interwebs. Idk why he is still posting here though lol who cares

Not true at all, sir. Some of us just have cars on their minds regardless of where they are/what they're doing. Since when can't car enthusiasts browse forums during their boring day jobs?
