I read that even the 'corrected' cars still felt overboosted and numb. Have you driven one of each? I'd be curious if that's really the case. My experience is with an '01 that may or may not have...

The flip side to the saving money argument is that you're only young and in college once, so enjoy it while you can. A good compromise would be to spend a bit less on your car and stick the...

If you're going to get a 3-series, I'd probably not get an '01. The main reason for that is the terrible steering feel. This you might already know, but if you haven't driven one, give it a try......

Sounds like a good trip! I did the Vegas - Denver thing yesterday (in the Subaru), and had some pretty decent snow up around Vail Pass. Did you hit any of that on your way though?

Warming up the oil before changing is typically a good idea - it'll be thinner, so more will come out and it will drain more quickly.

I may be interested... can you take some photos? Would you be willing to sell without the Porsche bike attachments?

Thanks :cheers:

On my '01, the PSM button is up near the cup holders, below the vents, on the top left in the group of three buttons. It's blocked by the steering wheel while driving.

Bad picture of the buttons,...

Well, it seemed to go decently enough. They did what I asked, didn't break anything, and didn't charge too much. Great reading selection and nice variety Reid's Porsches to look at as well.

I have an '02 Elantra and an '01 Boxster at the house, so I guess I'm qualified to answer. Yes, the Elantra has very light and over-boosted power steering. This is intentional. Makes for easy...

Heh, more that you might think. You do know that in the '90s, Porsche hired Toyota to fix their inefficient production methods and help make them profitable again, right? :)

Thanks for the thread, but I did a search through there with no luck.

After talking with them on the phone a few times, I'm convinced of their competency. We'll see how it goes.

That's your issue. If it's below 45 or 50 outside, my 2.7 will break the rear 255 SP Sport Maxxs free if I go WFO while rolling in first. That shouldn't happen with 192 ft-lbs, and it has...

No problem with the oil change.

You'll want to take the back wheels off for plug access, so I'd just use the supplied jack and a jack stand and do each side separately.
