      too bad GT2s are almost triple that still
      the GT3s are pretty close to the turbos in price IIRC.

      Also are the 40 Jahre editions if anyone cares about that..

      LA freeway corner wars (new reality TV series coming soon!) are no joke. Being Russian will help, but I fear in order to even get started out there Vad will likely need to make a deal with a pimp (no, not that kind of pimp...).

      Vad's sort of like TCL's resident stripper. He's just a huge tease that never actually does anything.

      nadaguides tells me the 2004 GT3 is around 20k more than that same year's turbo, so about 30%



      maybe in a few years...

      I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.

      That's not true.






      He sold a street legal, federalized R30 Skyline




      Semi redeemed himself by buying a rusty Nigerian E30 M3 and is now registered.

      Really?

      My credit union was all over my 150k mile 1998 4runner and gave me a great rate.

      (For the Financial Loungers out there... My money does me more good in the bank so I financed half of the truck)

      996's are cheap. They are the least liked newer generation cars. As a result many are relatively dirt cheap. I saw one today for $22K, but I loathe them so much $15K is too much.

      I thought that too and I bought a 2001 C4 with 65K on the clock 4 years ago. I owned it for 5 weeks before the IMS bolt let loose and my engine ate itself: $12.5K for the remanufactured engine. If the update kit's $2K, it's definitely cheap insurance.
