Yeah, I know I have problems and am obsessed with this weight thing. The chances are I'm going to give up and end up trading my M in for an 07 GT3 in 2-3 years.

keep up the fight!! I would say keep the M as your DD & get the GT3 too for your track fix, that is if you can swing it & get another spot for the GT3 or get a storeage garage...

The scary thing is that I've thought of doing exactly that. I could do it, but not the best way to tie up your cash. There is the crashing and burning housing market, and I've been waiting patiently on the sidelines to make my move...

That's an urban legend about Titanium. There is no problem with Titanium in cold climates with salt and snow. The problem with some titanium systems is high heat. If a systems is not welded or designed correct it will crack under high temps. Both GMC and Porsche have Titanium OEM exhaust systems.

Thanks Dave.....those were actually the first videos I had taken w/ the POV & honestly I was really surprise how well they came out...I also took a video w/ music LOUD driving around town & the music isn't distorted like it usually is when taking vids w/ a camera....I was going to get the GO PRO but it can only take a 2gb SD card & thats way too little when you needs hours of footage...plus my other use is that I'm going to be using it as a HEADCAM when I'm on my bikes/skydiving/snowboarding/mountain biking....

do you have the burnt tips and if you do, do you think it compliments the IB well? I'm kinda obsessed with amuse's tips with the predominant purple and blue. I'm a little hesitant with the hints of orange and yellow for the VRS.
