I think you have already convinced yourself to buy the RX-7. Are you planning on keeping your Boxster, also? Are you sure that your finances can handle two exotic, but old cars?

Are rear brake pad dampers required?

What size Torx bit

I am getting ready to do a brake job and found that my torx bits only go up to size T50 - too small. Will probably need T55, T60, or T70. I am guessing T60. Does...

Trade it in. The small difference you'll get for selling it yourself ($12K - maybe) or trade in ($10K) is probably not worth your effort. A Porsche is a specialty car and finding that 1 person in...

That is why I use clear fishing line to tie them to the rollbar. I just hope I never lose the centerpiece, since it is only held on by two clips. I hear the windscreen setup is quite expensive.
