That seems to be as low any of the top brands can get with a quality product. Low 20's. Very consistent between all of them which makes the 16.3 lb number look a bit curious.

Are you saying OEM 19' Porsche turbo wheels at 16.3 lbs? I didn't think TireRack sold OEM Porsche wheels. Maybe they do now. I just checked and couldn't find any. So what specific wheels did you buy?...

Looks really good based on the pictures so far. No side pictures though so hard to tell if you've added spacers already. Lowering tends to tuck the wheels into the well which is easily fixed with...

You pegged my body weight at 198 lbs.but I'm 6'3", not 6'6" and I say it again, the buckets fit me like a glove, literally. No, they're not plushy or anything close to a luxurious experience but...

16.3 lbs sounds crazy low. Never saw that number for a forged Porsche wheel, stock or after market. I don't think that's right. My 19/12" rear Forgelines are right around 20 lbs and are considered...

Check on the price with a $500 deductible if you didn't already. I say this since I just bought a Platinum policy for my 2011 GTS from Mike. He told me Fidelity had recently made some "adjustments"...

Impossible to give you good advice based on what you've said so far in my opinion. If you need to get out of your AMG lease next April you're almost a year away from trigger point. If I was in your...

Great explanation. Thank you. And I agree that a PPI is not the holy grail. Obvious defects are missed all the time so I think the best bet is to find a shop with a solid reputation or better yet,...

Couldn't agree more. Had a 1970 911T many moons ago and just did regular maint. on it over about 20,000 miles as I recall it. On my third 997 now and the most reliable cars I've owned. Yes, the PDK...

Such a subjective item. I like a thick, grippy leather wheel so this wouldn't work for me. But since you're considering it I wonder how this 1970's type wood wheel with Italian undertones will look...

Starting with the positive. I agree with those who like the 19" wheels better than the previous 20's. Much better, both in looks and proportion to the car. As for the engine, you're not describing...

I see what you're saying but the cost of replacing an engine is about the same whether it's a $50K or a $100K 911. So for me, I wouldn't try to save $300 on a PPI because the BAT car had 100...
