Re: M2 Competition

It's not 51/49. And yes I forgot about the big bodies. Point still stands.

Re: M2 Competition

I sincerely doubt the most forward weight biased M car ever is at a handling parity with a mid-engine boxer layout.

Re: The Winner of the Best Mexican Restaurant in America Doesn't go to Chipotle

Not quite nationwide. Taco Time is awesome though. The fast food taco equivalent of Chik-fil-A imo.

Re: The 100k-ish "ballpark" Weekend Car

Would be more fair to the comparison imo. 991 GT3's are roughly new R8 RWS money.

Chose the R8 but I'm also considering the Boxster Spyder and 991 GTS.

Re: My M3 is a stolen car? I need HELP

Thanks. I'm a little surprised the cop's VIN reader doesn't talk to all the modules. Seems like an important step to take before seizing someone's car 2 years after it was registered.

Re: My M3 is a stolen car? I need HELP

Do you see any way for the dealer key activation to have caused a stolen VIN to pop up at emissions testing? Seems like there is some connection there given he had plugged in for emissions before...

What is the dealer process for activating a key? Would the ecu, assuming the ecu vin doesn't match the chassis vin, accept a key that was activated using the chassis vin? Is it possible to disable...

Re: Porsche builds brand new 993 Turbo S for 70th Anniversary

The late model Ford GT's are a re-envisioning of the old car, and don't compete with Ford's other offerings. Would Porsche's target market be ok with a re-envisioned 993, or would they still prefer...

Re: Porsche builds brand new 993 Turbo S for 70th Anniversary

Probably too much redesign and certification required to sell them new again vs restoring an existing chassis.

Re: What's your verdict on the exterior styling of the 2019 BMW Z4?

I think it's the reference pic for the MM grille. Some pics have more of a mesh look than others. Not sure what was original equipment.

Front is pretty bad except for the fog light areas. Rest of the car looks ok.

Should have had them in 2011. They weren't a novelty then. Lexus was offering them in the IS models in 2006.

Re: My M5 deaded itself today

$10k isn't that bad for the v10 gamble imo (assuming you have time to DIY stuff like the alternator), if he gets 20k miles out of it before it blows up it would be worth it
Showing results 1 to 100 of 5000
