Ahha so I was right lol, yeah I remember your video from Atco very well back in 05-06. I also wish I still had my Evo 9 till this day, but thieves are garbage.

Congrats again on the Porsche.

How do you like the PDK?? Was your M3 DCT?
How is S-PASM? I ordered PDK and S-PASM.

My EVO 9 was the 1st one to run in the 11's at the time and so many people said that it wasnt possible with just a turboback and tune but so i had to film it to prove it.

to the theives that stole your car

To be honest I went with the PDK because i liked the DCT in the M3 so much.
I drove a 7spd car to see if i wanted to switch back to a manual but the car just didnt feel as fast.

The car with S-PASM looks alot better to me because of the lowered stance. With this option iam positive that i will never touch the suspension because i really wouldnt want the car to be any lower.

Ride quality is good even in the sport plus. I have hit some bumps and dips in the road and the car handled it very well so far no issues with it.

Good to know. Our roads in Toronto are horrible, so I was a bit worried ordering Sport PASM.

I miss my Evo VIII...they were such perfect, raw cars.

I'm sure the 911 makes it easier to forget though!

I pulled the trigger on an M5 today also felt sad to part away with my 911 which I thought I'd keep for years

The Porsche 911 S is a Better BMW M3

IMO, the Porsche 911 S is the next car after owning a BMW M3. Before I bought my M3, the only car left on the list to compare with was the 911 S. But for me, $125K was more car I could afford.

You did the right thing.

Enjoy it!

Test drove a base 991 convertible the other day while my Cayman was getting new rear tires. Handled great, very nice inside. Currently, 2 yr residuals on the 991 are so good that the monthly may be about the same as a Cayman S that lists for $20k, less, will have to see if that trend continues when my lease is up next year.
