      He has an 07, so first gen water pump and T stat. They drop like flies between 50 and 75k.

      Haha, common problem is common ;) 1000 bucks if you take it to an indy sounds about right. You can do it yourself for about half that. 1500 is very high. Never had an issue with the water pump on...

      Much better look for sure. The turbo twists just look right on the 996s. That in contrast with the factory wheels on my car which I don't care for at all.

      First of all, the price is nuts. I sold this for 24k a year ago. 09 335 coupe 6MT with M tech package and most options. 43k on the ODO, no issues at all. Came with wheels, JB4, and intercooler as...

      Haha, no worries man. We are all talking about M3 and M4s. That's the point of the thread :)

      Because I have a retina MBP that doesn't play very nicely with the dongle through the adapter needed, and frankly the coding can be a bit fussy and brick the vehicle. The plug wasn't hard to get to,...

      Figured I would update this thread. The car is doing really well. I just crossed 10k miles today. Other than the driveshaft thing, the car has been flawless. No other issues. Fuel economy has...

      Thanks bud, it is a blast :) Now that the weather has improved, the car can actually hold traction in second gear once I have a little heat in the tires. With traction, the turbos come on like a...

      Haha, sounds like misery. I decided to pass on converting my system to the GT2 hydraulics while the motor and trans were out for everything else. I haven't had any problems, and if that day comes,...

      I financed 80% of the M3 at less than 2% and with an aggressive repayment timeline because I wanted to, and at that time I needed to keep funds in place for moving and a bunch of other crap. It is...

      Not possible, period. The HPFP will not allow anything over about 650-700 whp at MOST. Add in any amount of ethanol and the power potential drops like a rock.

      It is amusing to me when bespoke fancy people put "a lot" of thought and work into something that ends up looking like what any 3rd grader would do given the same canvas.

      My cousin had a white 993 C2S that I got to put through its paces and while the car looked amazing, it did nothing for me beyond that. I was thoroughly underwhelmed. Throw in the questionable at best...

      No V6, it isn't a twin turbo either...the N55 is a "twin power" or twin scroll single turbo. BMW also beat them to market with the "unique" vacuum actuated wastegates by 8 years. Finally, the M3's...

      Looks aside, my brother has owned 3 generations of Viper with the latest being a 2014 TA. The new Viper is a far, far, FAR better car than either of the earlier ones ('09 and '99) could have ever...

      Not sure if it's the same for the Boxsters but my 997 literally chewed the inner half inch of my rear tires off down to the steel belts with a rear camber of -2.2 in 5k miles. An alignment fixed all...

      One of my partners at work daily drives his 06 C2S. It has 160k on it. It's been through a few water pumps and the interior looks a bit tired but otherwise it is mechanically sound and only put him...

      Haha, what exactly is "much better" about it? The PCM and climate control panel are different and appear more resilient. The seats, door cards, dash, etc are all the same.

      I think the build...
