I just got a set of the new Koni Special Active shocks. They are amazing, absorbing all the little nooks and crannies on the road, but firm up tightly upon going into the corners. Dollar for dollar,...

I'll have to go through the previous service records, but the clutch was done by the previous owner at 110K KM. I do not believe any mounts were changed. Add insult to injury, the IMS was not done,...

If you do get it, do share pictures!

That's a good question, but the honest answer is I don't know, and "just because."

I recently replaced the shocks and figured maybe time to replace the transmission and motor mounts to revitalize...

I think you can find some nicely sorted 986 Boxsters within that price range. Do you have a preference for an S or non-S model? I can't speak for which is the better model to buy so some of the...

$200 for a rebuilt alternator is not a bad price at all.

For those who are handy, you can buy an alternator rebuild kit and do it yourself and have a lot of money leftover.

Despite them telling me that I'm not allowed to ship the tires/wheels, the rep told me that I had to make sure the wheels wouldn't slide around during transport. Luckily, I was...

Very nice! I, too, shoot with a Nikon D300S. Except I have a nifty fifty. 18-55 stock lens was broken ages ago. I'll have to look into that lens. Thanks for sharing! :)
