SHOW US SUM PICS????????????????
maybe every e-series has one and we never new it!!!
this could be big. i reckon its like a on and off button for the hidden turbo every e-series has to come on...
take the car to a drag strip, race it, and then race it again with the button pushed in. this button has made me hard....
please email me pics. and maybe even a video with you pushing the button.........

Maybe, because you were 6, you misheard.... unless of course you still are 6... which also explain why you think you can bypass the ecu...

i'd say a kill switch. The car won't go very far with a bypassed ECU

Thats been asked a few times with no answer so far.

Can I ask what logic would there be to having a police car with a kill switch?

or a police car that has a switch to bypass the ecu :shock: .

i highly doubt that any cop cars have a switch that makes them go harder.

I know the point of an immobiliser, but why would anyone bother fitting one to a cop car. If its not on duty with cops in it then its parked at the station... and I'm sure thats a hot spot for car thefts.

I think you will find, that if you flick the switch, a little LCD will pop up and give you directions to the closest donut vendor.
