Does your car have DCT? If so how do you like it? Is it ever jerky or not engage gears smoothly, like from a stop?

I've driven one. It drives better than anything BMW makes that doesn't come with an //M badge. As you say, it gets lousy MPG and you don't get a car that's as fast in a straight line as the M3,...

Beautiful 997.

I test drove an '09 997.2 C2S PDK recently. It was at a Carmax of all places. If it weren't for the fact it was green on tan I might have gotten weak in the knees and sat down in...

Given the age and mileage of your car and the fact you keep getting repeated overheat warnings, I'd swap out the water pump ASAP.

Doesn't sound particularly inspiring to me. If this is something that truly concerns you, go to your nearest Porsche dealer and find a 911 with the sport exhaust (PSE) option.

I still don't agree with you. The exhaust sound of a 4-cylinder sounds nothing like that of a 6-cylinder, whether it be a V6 Infiniti, an Inline-6 BMW or a flat-6 pcar. That being said, perhaps the...

This would never fly. The M3/M4 is $70K+ even with a bare minimum of options. Add $15K and this car is priced out of the market. It's unfortunate the material quality of the F30/F80 has taken a...

How's your 981 holding up? Any issues? Did you go with PDK or manual? I'm trying to verify the following statement: "There is no substitute." :)
