      It's hilarious that they thought covering the manual trans shift lever was somehow camo :laugh:

      Pleased to hear for my own selfish reasons that the 991.2 GT3X cars will be 4L+....that will...

      I would keep the S4 and start making car payments to yourself until you get the 5-6k saved up you need to buy the Mustang. Will also get you in the habit of spending that money and can you assess...

      The auto hellcat with maybe a second gear launch is very strong. I ran one the day I ran my GT3. I barely got him in the quarter when I ran an 11.3, but he was gaining fast and was nearly beside me...

      No experience with the Ecoboost Sport, but a good friend had the previous gen sport with the Mustang 3.7L. It was sort of a bizarre motor for an SUV. Weak kneed below about 3k rpm, but pulled...

      You do realize they made more than the one lemon 991 he bought, correct? Also, he's getting a 991.2, not the 991.1 like he had previously. The F8X cars are a lot of fun to drive. A little...

      If you can easily afford these cars, which you make it out to be, then the depreciation associated with either one of them shouldn't be anything that should concern you. Cars aren't great...

      See above. I have a good friend with a JGC and the shifter is recalcitrant, unintuitive, and stupid. It ends up in neutral when trying to go to park or reverse constantly. I know this was already...

      If you have decent credit, CU rates will kill any HELOC I've seen even including the ability to write it off. I'm using a HELOC to convert med school loan debt that isn't tax deductible for my income...

      Bingo. The fuel shutoff valves are finicky withe 911s. I usually have to pull the snout of the fuel nozzle back a bit for it to fill up without a decent amount of attention paid. If/when you get...

      Socket is still included with the 991 GT3 at least. It lives just in front of the master cylinder reservoir in a little plastic bin.

      The car comes with the bit that attaches to the center lock bolt. There's a locking mechanism in the center that it pushes in at the same time to allow the bolt to spin. You still have to purchase...

      There is a very big difference in being honest about the design flaws of the Mezger, and outright criticism. If I was critical of it and unhappy with it, I wouldn't have spent the better part of 20...

      Not so fast, VL. There are more maintenance requirements on the turbos, particularly the .1s than the NA equivalent. Plugs need to be changed much more frequently for instance. That is a thousand...

      The 997.1TTs are very bland stock. The 997.2TTS steps the game up. I personally don't like the center locks, because they have super lame offsets from the factory and there's no way to remedy that...
