    I want to throw my two cents in also. I stopped by Sheen's today to leave some drool on his garage floor. I did just that after a snapped a couple pics. WOW...nice ride!

    Not bad. So what kind of snow tires are you getting? :laugh:


    I think I still prefer the look of the 996 over the current 997 911's.

    These cars have pretty normal ground clearance for being a high performance sports car.

    Gorgeous.

    First to-do item: Paint front "lip" body-color. It helps A LOT.

    UGH, Sheen you rotten bastard. Last time I talked to you you said, and I quote "I don't know, we'll see if I can swing it, with the money I got from the STi I might pick up another Legacy or something."

    Then this thread surfaces.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Come on now, Eli. The clear side markers were here before the car!

    Bumperettes and front lip will be painted next Spring. Still undecided on rear spoiler (want to balance out the front end weight reduction), rear wiper delete, (hellaflush :rolleyes:) wheels, and overall aesthetics... but I have all winter to think about that.

    I still want a legacy wagon or obs wagon. Probably next fall or when the exploder explodes. Whichever comes first.

    Solid power band and linear power delivery, but it's slow in a straight line.



    My favorite angle:

    stooopid cat jumps in every picture... better than foot pics lol

    stuck with stock size 295/30/18, 225/40/18 since upsizing to gt2 spec would negate the 6lb per corner weight loss from the aftermarket wheels and the only decent
    tires in that size are Kumho XS... meh.

    I might buy a spare set of oversized matching fronts in 255/40/18... gotta wait till next year's tax return money comes tho lol

    :laugh: yea, it is a violent, angry car with 0 leg bolstering. Maybe once warranty runs out... Dunno if I wanna give up the nice lazyboy seats for a couple autoxs and track days a year tho.

    too slow and too quiet lol 420ish. I think they make 350-375awhp stock. With a flash they seem to typically make 400-425whp and 475-500wtq depending on the tuner and dyno. Stock clutch starts going around 500wtq, so upgraded turbos won't happen until I can afford to do clutch at the same time :rolleyes:

    I still prefer bacon, but this should help:

    hoping it warms up soon so I can install this along with new plugs and coilpacks.
