It can get even worse worse on the east coast. Dropped off a rental car in Orlando Thursday night for an overseas flight. $5.97/gallon for 87 octane was the best deal around the airport. Thought it was a mistake or something weird so drove around to a couple of other gas stations within a mile or so. Same thing. Obviously Orlando and its airport surroundings is one of the biggest tourist traps in the US and visitors done and ready to go home have the choice of paying $6/gallon to fill up before returning their rental car or pay $9/gallon to the rental car company for a partially empty tank.

Picked up a set of these on Friday - only took a year of hunting before I found a set locally!

My fav 997 wheels. Washed, prepped and ready to be mounted hopefully this week.

NIce wheels, are you adding spacers to these? If so what size?

Yup, I do plan to use spacers. My car came with the option XRP 5mm spacers from the factory, so I'll be running them in the rear. Unfortunately, at some point in the cars life the front spacers went MIA ...

My other car is in the shop, been daily driving for a few weeks and she needed a bath. First time daily driving her. What a joy even if it's not a spirited drive.

Not yet.. H&R until the shocks get loose. Then Ohlins and some other bits. Ride height is pretty good but needs dialed in.

i had eibachs installed on mine but I’d like it lower. I’ll be looking at bilsteins with pasm compatibility eventually. Anyway, great looking car.

Wild bast to work, taking the long way to work. Great morning sunrise and cool calm only disturbed by the sound of tires groaning for grip on the twisty bits
