Notice you have a Boxster as well...I had a '97, one of the first delivered in Austin back then. Great car, just too small for me. Should have kept my '90 944S2 Cabrio.

Yeah toyota of boerne is awesome when it comes to warranty. Its actually a subaru engine with toyota direct injection and valve timing, FA20 is the engine code. The boxster is the wifes but its so fun to drive, i took it to harris hill a couple of times all ready its more enjoyable than the M3 even though the M is faster.

Here are some lap times comparing the cars @ H2R:

M3 STOCK on Hankook v12's: 1:29.9
Boxster-S PDK stock: 1:31.3
FR-S (boltons, full suspension, cage, aero, bbk, slicks): 1:27.1
l 2014 F31 328d X-drive M-sport l 2014 F30 328d M-Sport l BMW F-800 GSA l 1997 E-420 Sport l 2014 Touareg Tdi Armoured Level B5 l
M2 on order

Compensating a heavy car with horsepower is like giving an alcoholic cocaine to sober him up...
