None of the local dealers here in the Bay Area would do one for me either, but there are indy shops that can do them. And the dealer will usually be willing to at least run an overrev report.

It still gives you the option to decide whether the asking price is worth it to you for a configurable allocation. It's a no cost option to purchase a car. How is that a bad thing? How are you...

Good on you for sticking to the need for a PPI. I agree, anyone who won't allow the car to get checked out at the buyer's expense is questionable.

I had an Audi dealer tell me that yearsback, I.e., that the State was mandating they install the front plate mount before it leaves the dealership or they would get fined. No exceptions, yada yada. ...

The R's grill is different, but I thought of doing something similar. My concerns are a) it'll disrupt flow to the radiator and b) if it moves at all it'll scratch up the grill. I have a tow hook...

Strangely, most of the reviewers are preferring the GT3 RS to the GT2 RS.

My point being, NA is only a dead end due to regulatory pressures, not due to any inherent flaw. For many, it still...

How can a red light camera give you a no front plate ticket? I thought they picked up the front plate.

Agreed. The 911 body style doesn't lend itself to a good Cabriolet design, much less a Speedster. Looks like two cars slapped together in the middle, and one has too much junk in the trunk. Like...

Awesome wheels and color. I'd do the chrome tips with that window trim. PDCC is awesome, but not a necessity. I'd spend money on PCCB before PDCC, though I'd probably do both, myself.

The 718 is its own car. Only connection to the 981 is that they’re both mid engine sports cars with a generally similar body style.

Can’t see the build, but my advice is do the five spokes, PCCB and PDCC.
