I'm sorry man I don't. And I did not really like the look on the car. I sure did like no dried on bugs and rock chips. :)

My car was pristine when I traded it. The bra helped!

At any rate I have found you all a great group, and I...

I might suggest that the new tires that the nitrogen is inside is what smoothed the ride.
For the average street driven car nitrogen is nothing more than a marketing gimmick.

As an inveterate MB fan I too like the oil extraction method that is employed. I could literally change oil and filter on my diesel MB's in a jacket and tie. No muss no fuss.

Whining about Porsche Maint. cost.

Not me, just chatted with my Toyota dealer about 90 k svc. on my 03 4runner V8 4WD.

Would you believe about a grand for 90 K svc?

At 90 K it's due for a timing belt and sparkplugs. Plus the...

There is a Porscheness to that rear view. I also loved the look of my 928 S4 from the rear.

I made the mistake of telling my wife about that feature.
