    Hello, love the diy and want to give it a shot. I was wondering if you could forward to me the PDF template for the 997 grill. My email is [email protected]

    Great work!

    I haven't had any unexpected maintenance on my car (knock on wood) but then again it is not a daily driver for me. I think most 997 owners are unlikely to put more than 5k miles per year. You can check Pelican parts to give you and idea of what brake pads, rotors and other basic maintenance items will cost. I'd say the brake parts are about 50-70% more expensive than what you'd pay on a BMW. Nothing besides the IMS to look out for on the early 997.1 cars.

    Frankly I'm wondering if a 911 is that much more than a BMW 335 in maintenance. I'm willing to do all of the mentioned work above on my potential 997. At this point I think it's all hype when people claim they are so expensive. Because I heard the same thing about BMWs and only had 1 major issue up to 130k miles.

    Besides the IMS issues, what else do you recommend I look out for?
    Basically, any issues, repairs, unexpected maintenance on yours? If so, how much did it cost, and I assume you went to an Indy shop if you couldn't do it yourself.

    Thanks, Hank

    You have the same mindset that I do regarding repairs and expenses. I've been in a 335 for about 5 years and only had one major repair bill at $1k for waterpump and t-stat, which to me after research was the best price, etc.
    I do my own oil changes brakes, pads, spark plugs ($75 via amazon BMW part number) coils are around $300. Changing a belt is no big deal, window regulators, lights, filters, you know. I'm good at finding and pricing out parts.

    See other email....(limited characters...)

    Thanks for your posting about the broker. Would you mind providing his contact information?

    I attached it with more than just 2 zip ties. see my other video of where I attached the others. When you push out the center vertical piece you will see that there are small holes under the vertical slats in the middle, you can use that as a securing spot to thread the zip ties through and it will be invisible. I sent you the template to your email

    Hello, can you please send me the template for the radiator grill cover? I like your DIY and I am about to try too. One question, how did the mesh hold up to time and highway speed with only two zip ties? If it's easier, here is my email address: [email protected]. Thank you!!

    To be honest with you I don't know what drone sounds like so I couldn't tell you. It sounds good and there isn't anything that bothers me so I assume it's no drone. I have a 2009 C2S so its the same engine as yours. It's not loud at low rpms but gets a nice sound above 3,500 rpm

    You had a post about getting the gundo hack recently. Just wondering what P-car you have?? I have a '10 C4S and am looking at doing the gundo soon. Any drone? Or is it too early to tell?
