Re: My 2nd e46 M3 stint is over

I'm afraid no car is ever a keeper for me, but who knows. I really want a 991 GT3, and the GT4 is just a stepping stone. If it was up to me, I'd get the GT3 now, but I have to look out for the wife...

I was thinking the exact same thing. Epoxy or concrete staying just doesn't hold up, and I am not confident those plastic tiles would either. That is not a bad idea at all. looks good.

That is no kidding. Even at PCA autocross, they do a better tech inspection. Track-day organizers are getting sloppy/lazy.

I thought the opposite was the case, that they are marked down. As I wrote, I have no idea if the price is a good deal, jus that the car would be a choice.

This is a 2017, with 6700 mile and they are asking $65k. Not entirely sure that is a great deal? Need to do more research and probably can work them on price, if I wanted the car.

I believe the old saying is that it is more fun to go fast in a slow car, then to go slow in a fast car. But you are correct, it needs to have a little getty up to make it really enjoyable.
