Goodyear F1 GS-D3 265/35/18 rear tires

They are great in the rain, but unusable in the ice / snow.

Don't bother researching further. I have those same Goodyear F1 tires on my car, and while they are great tires (I like them much more than my original Pirellis), they no longer make them in Boxster wheel sizes.

Cheetah,

How do you like your Borla?

P.S. Somehow I find myself wanting a green GT3

He didn't. It's either an aftermarket bumper, OEM european bumper or a really good bondo job.
