      Give me 100 lbs of 'stuff'- leather and nav. I don't need to save 0.1 second on my daily commute.

      I think the LFA was only 75-100k overpriced (unlike everyone who said it should be 150k). It was FR (less exotic) and more traditional 'looking' than the GT. The GT may be a touch overpriced, but the...

      Let me put it in a non-PC way: if you want to be the captain, go to captains school. Don't train to be a flight attendant and then expect to fly the plane. Since you don't already have an RN/LPN and...

      My dad, also 60, does well and doesn't care about cars. Mercedes has been the standard for a long time. He's had an 00 E320, a 04 E320 4matic and now a '12 E350 4matic. Comfortable, luxurious and...

      Theyre basically a regular 360 (225-235 hp) with a slightly better flowing exhaust and an electric fan to give it 10 extra hp. Most stuff is swappable but different packaging precludes all the stuff...

      I had a 5.9 from 2003-06. Bought it with 129k and sold with 170k. Put way too much money in it (headers, exhaust, cam, torque converter), dynoed a bit over 300 rwhp when I was done with it. Someone...

      Their main criticism is the sound. The main draw of the 458 over the 12C (given nearly equivalent performance) is the tame sound of the 12C compared with the crazy wail of the NA V8. Good thing there...

      You dont really consider those all separate models do you?

      I count 3: 911 (S, 4, GTS), GT3 and Turbo (+/- S, no GT2 as of now). But also count the Boxster and Cayman (so 5, if a fiesta counts, why...

      There's 300+ posts from today in the 488 thread on FChat. Most of them hate it. Redline not high enough, don't like the 911t inspired side vents. 458s could hold their value for a while.

      Just food for thought: the Enzo had 651 hp, 485 tq and weighed 1255 kg. this has more hp, tq and only weighs 75 more lbs. and will have a much better tranny. And be about $700k less too.

      Wonderful...

      Engine? no. Fuel Pump, yes. But that issue has been fixed since ~2010.

      My 08 has 70k and has had very few (<$100) issues since I got it 2 years/21k ago. And I've been tuned most of it.
