Re: C&D: Corvette Grand Sport Long Term Wrap Up (40K miles)

Likewise. The most expensive thing I can see a turbo 4 banger being acceptable in is a hatchback.

Friend of mine who bought a W204 C63 AMG had a bottle of Muscle Milk and tub of hair gel shoot out from under the driver's seat the first time he used the brakes hard. :rofl2:

Turns out it was only 5x more, I thought I remembered it being higher. That being said, the Corvette is even cheaper than the pricing below indicates as it has better(more often) service intervals...

Re: C&D: Corvette Grand Sport Long Term Wrap Up (40K miles)

Maintenance costs are nice though. IIRC their last long term C7 cost ~1/10th as much to keep around as their long term Cayman/Boxster.

Ferrari has better fitment for tall people(I am 6'5") than the NSX in my experience.

Never bent a wheel in my life, but pretty much every car I've had has either had forged wheels OE or got BBS forged wheels immediately.

Re: BMW upset with E46 M3 enthusiasts

I suspect the bigger kick in the ass was NSX coming out and Ferrari realizing that they were going to go the way of the small British roadster with the Miata if they didn't improve things a bit.

Re: BMW upset with E46 M3 enthusiasts

I’ve had both the BRZ and the E36 M3, neither were sold because of their performance level.

BRZ’s EPS was numb, the clutch had zero feedback, and the general fit and finish was that of a tin can. ...

Re: Oil leak cpv

It is going to leak eventually if you don’t replace it. So do the upgrade, clean the area, see if the mess returns.
