It is heavy because there is no financial incentive to save weight on the car. The Porsche is built to be a low volume sports car you can track with no work. The BMW is a nice GT meant to pick up...

WAAAAAY to slammed. Did you modify the bump stops to maintain full suspension travel or do you simply have rock hard springs that bottom out on every pothole?

Get a Honda. More reliable. Lower maintenance. Just as good if not better resale. Safer understeering handling.

It sounds like your turbos are running out of speed. You need to spin a turbo faster at higher altitude in order to make the same boost and power at a lower altitude.

If you are looking at 15K then you are going to be waiting a lot longer than a year or two. No car (not even a Kia) depreciates that fast. For a 15k SS convertible you are probably looking at 6...

Different strokes for different folks. You can't really use the extra power on the street so it is pointless to me. Maybe a few on ramps or highway pulls, that is about it. For someone like me who...

What is current weight of the vehicle? I can't imagine much more weight savings then you currently have.

Also, did you upgrade cooling? (intercooler, oil cooler radiator, etc?)

This is a problem with an engine that runs hot. My 335 does the same thing; pulls timing and restricts boost. A lot more than a 20hp less. Try probaby 50. The engine is just trying to protect...

I honestly think the 120lbs would make it worth it to buy the lighter model. For me the 18's don't do anythign but add unsprung weight and make the ride worse. The sport suspension is a debatable...

128vs135

Anyone else feel like these guys? They make some good points about having to work for your speed and the difference in price can buy some really nice tire and suspension upgrades.

I have to disagree. They are different but not worlds apart. Both feel heavy, and not what I would consider "small car handling"

No, that was the surprising thing. No rattles at all (new vs. 10k miles but still)

+1000

10k is a ton of money when comparing two cars. The better comparison is 328 vs G35 when you look at price paid. And in that case the 328 loses quite a few of those comparisons.

A sport coupe shouldn't weigh more than 3000lbs in my opinion so I am definitely with you on that point. But at least they gave the car lots of other goodies including 400+ hp.

No interest whatsoever in adding power, the car has plenty. If anything I would rather have the theoretically more rugged, less prone to overheating 330 engine (255hp).
