Oh, please. I didn't mean I could win a world championship with an hour of instruction. Not sure why certain people want to interpret it that way.

I mean I could use an hour one-on-one with a...

Oh, no doubt, Otherwise you're teaching yourself. t but I feel that all it would take would be one hour of instruction from an expert and then LOTS of practice and I'd be so much better off.

I agree with the assessment. I'm quite positive I won't destroy the car because I will take instruction for the course and keep ramping it up until I scare myself a couple of times. Then back off,...

Thinking about a Track Day

My dealership has set me up for a track day before but I haven't opted in. After this winter, I just feel like it's time to let 'er rip. I don't care if I have to drive a '94 Camry at this point if...

You can buy the kit from Suncoast.

DO NOT create a FrankenPorsche. We love our cars and will do a lot of sh*t to them. But there is a tipping point. You need to stay away from major drivetrain "upgrades". If you don't like what you...

Nice. I am not in driving mode here in Chicago. I wait for roads to be salt-free, 40F or so so I have braking, and take a good run to get everything up to temp. Otherwise it has to sit. In colder...

Seat Cover/Upholstery Replacement?

My drivers seat has a bit of a "shiny" look. Driver(s) sliding in and out. I'd like to rejuvenate it a bit to look like the passenger side (which looks new) and I am not sure what my options are.

Same thing here. Just it back from my PDK replacement. I had CPO coverage. The service advisor told me that my out of pocket would have been $22,000 otherwise.

33k on the odometer.

Had same issue.
Full fuel tank. Warmer temps. A bumpy road to "break it loose". Then it's a miserable squeaking that goes on no matter what road you drive on.

It fixes itself with less fuel and a...
