This is your opinion and your money, so this is not personal. But, I just don't agree with this logic anymore. My third car is a 2008 Honda Pilot. It' a POS (not a Honda fan at all), but it's paid...

First off, a crack can form and you easily may not have noticed. Never go to the dealer for a windshield replacement. As far as your insurance, I have no ida why they are telling you this. I have...

I used to experience this more in my 335. Less so now in my 911. Now those silly little sentras and VW's like to check out my car.

Bottom line, just ignore them. Being stupid and possibly...

Early 40's. US Military. Owned my 335 M sport at 40.

4 BMWs now and just moved into a 911 Carrera 4S. Decided it was time to buy what I always wanted.

I guess the question is why? I think you would best be served by upgrading to high quality tires. Increasing size won't necessarily help performance and you are subject to rub and possible damage.

Good choice. I agree, no skulls. Looks silly. At least look for an '09 or later. Highly recommend you try for the competition package.

It's personal taste, but I've never been a fan of all black. Seems best suited for Chargers, Civics, or Tahoes with 22" wheels.
