That way you never get bored and can try something different depending on what you need for that particular weekend.
You're the type of guy that would rather sleep around forever instead of sticking to one gal forever

Better not leave the forums open on your computer !!!!! Hahahhaha

By the way I live in south OC, I welcome any nice roads in SD. I love going down there, the drive alone on the 5 is so scenic with the ocean to my right...

I've always liked the 997.1 GT3 cars, but feel the maintenance costs will be through the roof.

Sincerely,
Man that has done zero research.
They are actually quite reliable.

Maintenance is not too bad, but parts are more expensive. As with Bmws the dealer is a rip off. Find a good Indy.

The Achilles heel are the oem coolant pipes which can fail on all 996/997 mezger engines. The fix is replacing the plastic elbows with metal ones and pinning them. This requires engine removal at a cost of $3500.

Also, the ceramic brakes are costly to replace and most swap to steel rotors.
