Air bag disposal.

Does anybody know if there is a 'correct' way to dispose of a live air bag? I have the original steering wheel and air bag from my recently sold 996 (was replaced with a three-spoke some years back)....

Damon, can you let us know how to inquire about the age of the tires we're buying prior to completing the purchase on your web site?

It's good to know this is possible. But I think it's also fair...

Hear ya. But so you don't think I'm a jerk, these tires weren't on sale, and there was no disclaimer about tire age. They were also $849 landed and before installation, for 205-40 17s, which I don't...

It scared me off, unfortunately. The tires in question were Blizzaks for our Abarth, not what you'd call exotic tires. Whereas we just put new summer tires on the wife's MINI at a local retailer, and...

IIRC, the official advice is that the LN retrofit is a wear item and should be replaced at regular intervals. 50,000 miles, maybe... something like that.

Fake posts are an issue for sure, although it's debatable which way they'd swing the numbers. Otherwise, this isn't really such a bad poll. Given the 95/5 split, and assuming ownership is the only...

That 'something' isn't necessarily the product itself. Sometimes, it's a manufacturing process. These engines were hand assembled on a bench. The 996 was designed and built during a financially...

I think the picture has changed a bit since 2006. I daresay even Adrian's book would probably benefit from an update. Only now does the entire 996 fleet have enough years and miles under its belt to...
