It depends what you mean by performance. At the limit they are more efficient but for day-to-day driving I think the steptronic can hold its own. I haven't driven a DSG equipped car but I have tested...

It would be feasible if you had Ed China doing the swap free of charge. The 240Z is born of a different time where electronic integration of the transmission was a Sci-Fi concept. Most practical way...

The reliability of a Boxster varies with model and year. The 986 was designed during a difficult financial period for Porsche and it shows. I believe reliability improved greatly with the 987.

Yes it is very goofy looking, attracts even more attention than the Z4 :D. It is supremely comfortable, so much so my regular hybrid bike has been collecting dust. Handles trails like a champ!

Yes, it takes up most of the trunk though there still is plenty of room to stuff loose items in the corners. The bike fits in very easily too. One last obvious advantage is that there is no exposed...

If dirt is in the well area and it is not moving, I'd rather not disturb it unless I am sure I can get it all out.

I'd be nervous about debris that I've loosened by air blowing up through the drains. There is no guarantee you'll get everything out of the top area since you can't really get into it.

How was the condition of the top drain hole? I'm curious whether there was large debris or fine dirt.

Apart from the unsprung weight savings there is an extra 0.5 inches of tire cushioning which should make a very noticeable difference.

The method in the video relies on the power of the vacuum to pull down dirt from the top hole.

I had a 428i loaner for a couple of weeks earlier this year. The Potenza S001 225/45R18 RFT's it had were not terrible. I'm not sure if it was the tires or the suspension setup that made them livable.
