Ah, the Exige. A good friend has a 260 R - all carbon fiber, really a track car. It's so low-slung that I can't see into the damned thing, let alone get into it.

Great points - the big issue is taking all that power and getting it to the ground. That's why launch control has become such a big feature in the really high-powered cars. At the Porsche Sport...

Anyone can go "fast" today. I've seen plenty of Hyundai Elantra drivers show their willingness to travel at triple-digit speeds, usually where it's not advisable. So for me it's correlation, not...

I think these renders look much better than the previous "spy shots". The M-Sport treatment helps, but those headlight covers, ugh. FWIW, I would be perfectly happy trading BO for BW. Bowers and...

Here, here! I have never been convinced that the advantages of RFT outweigh the negatives or the cost. If the damage is in the sidewall, that FR feature is worth squat. Even my 911 came with a...

Pelican Parts is an incredible resource, especially if you are a 911 owner.

Not sure I agree here - my work blackberry works fine with emails and messages, and I get around 150 / day. I just have the system read them to me if I'm underway. Very handy.

My 2011 has it. Pisses me off, but I just started touching the back door to lock. The small time it takes to get there is apparently the same as the delay.

I think it should be fixed, too. This is...

Same problem happened to me, it's documented in another thread. They had to re-do to the whole SIB to get the BMW Apps / Connected Drive portion to work.

Good luck!

Another who drives both, and unless the person didn't know how to drive what they had, they weren't threatened in the least. Love my 535, but it's no match for the 911 in the twisties.
