      Nice score.

      I will most definitely keep an eye on this build.

      Cheers

      Honestly, we could use a thread on highest options as a percentage of base price.

      OP, BTW, love love love your threads.

      I've seen Porsche options go above $150k. Just in options. For example there's that one '89 930 slantnose cabriolet that wasn't delivered until '91 or '92 and had an as delivered price aound $300k.

      Then there are the 6 '95 993 turbo cabriolets, stuff like that.

      I'm sure you love your family and children but they'd have to be in full hazmat suits to even sit in the car.

      re: TE's is an excellent choice.

      E88s on a wagon would be wild as well.

      Fantastic garage! I love hot rod wagons. They’re the ultimate Q ships.

      Have to admit I'm also considering these as I have a good relationship with BC Forged.

      Those would be killer.

      I feel like the TD06 is a bit edgier looking, while the TD02 spokes have some curves to them from certain angles.

      The TD06 would be my pick.

      Td06, my top choice from them too. Downside is harder to clean them and brakes but since I am going with 20's, might not be too bad.

      Small price to pay.

      Some additional fluffy or long/soft bristle car wash brushes would help with a lot of that too. You can find some that are great for getting into wheels.

      No, ugh, gross.

      There is something so taboo about seeing TE-37s on European cars. It seems wrong but it just looks so right. TE-37s are a timeless design and would look stunning on your wagon.

      Agree, sort of. I don't know if I could do it.

      If I was going to a mesh wheel it would be BBS. I might consider BCF in a two piece, but not in a monoblock. Probably HRE for monoblock.

      Ordered H&R front springs and rear lowering links. Hoping I can install everything this weekend.

      All the whiteness of the wheels and the fender badges with the yellow from the caliper... perfection. Any chance of swapping the amber reflector for clear?

      Perfect height.

      Is the rear suspension the Airmatic, in which case the lowering links simply recenter the height sensors?

      Correct on rear.

      I plan to change those amber reflectors eventually.

      Normally amber reflectors don't bother me too much, but yikes that one is bad. It doesn't even follow the body lines
