      First oil change yesterday. I decided to do it somewhat impetuously, so I dropped by the Porsche stealership for the parts. My goodness, $50 for an oil filter insert, two rubber grommets, and a...

      Ha, that's a great question. I think I'll update the M3 thread here in just a bit. It had an issue that is sort-of fixed. Took 30 days in the shop, 99.9% of which it simply sat out back of the...

      Shined it all up yesterday afternoon for the Cars and Coffee this morning. Weather was perfect. The car looks great. That Opticoat pro system really is something else. Everybody always thinks it is...

      Yep, both manifolds fed into one collector and into the turbo. Both banks were utilized. There was a crappy Saab turbo V6 that made no more power than a naturally aspirated 3L of the day. It had a...

      Pulled off at a scenic overlook while the cars cooled we watched a caravan of newish Ferraris tear past. Then a very old gentleman wheeled into the parking by himself...

      There is very little sound piped into the cabin of the F8X. I have the exhaust flaps on my F80 disabled and the exhaust sounds glorious. The exhaust with the flaps open is downright LOUD. I have...

      A less than 30 year old friend of mine has one of these things. Ridiculous, though the styling is a bit more sedate in person than they would appear in pictures. They also are a bit svelter without...

      I suppose it depends on each person's circumstances. I've never carried a monthly credit card balance in my life. I don't have college debt, but I do have debt from med school (which isn't really...

      As is usual, in real life you strive to land between the people saying "you should spend 100k on a car," and the loons saying "OMG, a single guy only making 100k a year?!?! You are poor! You can't...

      Yep, where I used to live was in the foothills of the Appalachians. Not only that, I lived on one of the best driver's roads in the city (and coincidentally enough the same road that Barber...

      Nissan has found the price limit of the GT-R. Turns out that it is around 85-90k for the Premium and around 95k or so for the Black editions. They simply don't sell worth a crap above those prices....

      I think part of it is that I'm just not a Porsche guy. I don't get all starry eye'd thinking about them, and I don't think I'm special because I own one. Most people who are rabid about them are...

      I have crystalline on the M3. Absolutely love it. It has a bit of a blue hue from the outside at certain light angles but the heat rejection is amazing. I did 40% sides and 70% windscreen. Haven't...

      No. The tip of the injector is now sitting in the combustion chamber and is exposed to the full brunt of each combustion event. The fuel pressures are also thousands of PSI, not 60-75 psi like a...
