Lol. I love the car so far. I'd love to have a GT2 or GT3 but that is super out of my price range. Also were you able to find what you needed on our website with the link I had provided you?

Thanks. Wheels, exhaust, intake, and tune. Nothing to major. The suspension is already perfect but at the same time I can't stand the wheel gap, so I'm not sure if I will mess with that or not.

If i understand correctly there is euro springs that are OEM factory parts will sit a bit lower than your car and/or you can always go aftermarket. If you are getting wheels then you will need to lower the bad boy for sure. I will connect you up with one of my friend who also has a cayman s.

Thanks Raja. Haven't decided if coil overs are worth it or just go springs like H&R or something. Still trying to look into that.

This...

Even if you hit the average ownership length (used to be 5 years, not sure what it is now), that is a HUGE improvement for you and big cost savings. It won't be the final time. And there is nothing wrong with that.
