    Hello there. I am the owner of a 1974 Alfa GTV that was owned by a gentleman named Wann Richter. In doing some research on Mr Richter, I came upon your name and wanted to reach out to you and see if you were familiar with this GTV while Mr. Richter owned it. I am aware of Wann's untimely passing several decades ago and offer you my belated condolences. If you have any relevant history on the car, or just wanted to share a story, or 2 about the GTV, please call me at 805-680-0642, or email me at photogguy805@aol.com. Thank you in advance and I hope this note finds you well. -Mike-

    Hi Dan,

    I think I had seen in a prior post that you had installed LED front bumper lights. Would you mind telling me what brand you purchased, and where I might find them?

    Thanks,
    Geoffrey

    It's quite possible that I was on State Street that day. I hope you enjoyed your time in town!

    We visited Santa Barbara September 21 for the Avon cancer walk and I believe I saw your car on state street while we were having lunch. Fantastic....

    Ronmart--the car is nearly at 70,000 miles! Perhaps I will hit that this week. Doing fairly well. The leather is holding up pretty well. It's nothing like the leather from years ago but it's not too bad. I have a little discoloration on one part of the steering wheel, and a reasonable amount of wrinkles on the left seat bolster. I think if I treated that area it would be fine again. Still on original spark plugs!

    Just saw your post to my TPMS question - it's cool to see you are still driving your Cab - I remember very clearly when you ordered it!

    How many miles do you have on it these days?

    I'm at around 31k miles and <knock on wood> I've only had to do oil changes and a couple very minor warranty items. I'm still on original brakes and clutch too despite a series of track visits too!

    My big expense has been tires and now potentially this TPMS issue, but otherwise it's been great.

    I'm wondering how your natural leather has held up! I've been very happy with my full leather option, but I'm a leather junkie so i've been curious about your leather over the long haul. Worth the money? I had Nappa leather on my 2000 Mercedes for 11.5 years before I sold it and it was wonderful - worth every penny!

    Edgy: Just a note of thanks for your post back in 3/16/09 regarding the serpentine belt and pulleys which I printed out and took to my OP . They had replaced the serpentine belt previouslyu under warranty but there was a recurrent "hollow pulley" sound when the engine was cold (went away when engine warmed up). After showing your post information, they disassembled the air box and belt and found one of the pulleys noisey. They replaced all 3 plastic pulleys and installed new serpentine belt and the car runs better than it ever has. Thanks again for this valuable information.

    All the best,
    Dave

    P.S. While car was in shop I test drove the 991S. Nice car but I found it over the top in terms of luxury, comfort, and numbness in contrast to my '07 C4S. Didn't like the PDK (boring) compared to my M/T. So I remain a 997 stalwart devotee ;-)

    Ken,

    I'm sure the manual is simply trying to cover all the bases. Every clutch seems a little different to me, and you simply have to adjust yourself to what it takes to move the clutch disc off the pressure plate.

    Best of luck for that new Boxster buyer!

    Hi Dan,
    Sorry, got another question for you. (probably not worthy of a group discussion)
    A friend just bought a 2012 Boxster S. In the manual, it states the cluch should be "fully" depressed upon each change of gears. As a result, my buddy depresses the cluch to the floor on every gear change. Frankly I've never done this. On the Carrera, less than 1/2 cluch depression allows you to shift cleanly, and thats what I've been doing. Is the manual way overstating.... or am I doing some damage?
    I've had manual transmissions in some form or another all my life and I've never depressed the cluch to the floor to shift. ??? I did however read it right out of the Boxster Manuel.

    Thanks Ken
