Good luck with the S4 Avant. The A4 looks gorgeous in Avant form.

A friend dumped his GTR because he said he was going to lose some teeth from the harsh ride. Loved the power but he said it was a brutal ride in the city.

You have a future classic IMO with the GT3.

I've been a fan of import cars ever since my 1986 Chrysler Le Baron died. lol. I remember hitting a pothole and watch my chrome spoked hubcap spinning down the road beside me. My girlfriend was like, I think your wheel fell off. lol. My next car was a 1992 Prelude Si. I never went back to domestic. If the Focus RS was here, I'd definately be rockin that.

I always like Vettes but never pictured myself in one. I wish I had one for the track though. They are just monsters down the straight. Instructors emphasize cornerspeed but having a big ass pushrod V8 down the staights sure makes up for any slight mistakes taking a corner.

I'm still dreaming about one day having a Ferrari or Lambo. They are just way too expensive for me at this point to enjoy it. At those prices, I'll prolly be thinking about resale, mileage, depreciation, etc and not have any fun with it which is the whole point of owning it. One day maybe.

A picture of your Evo perhaps?

Thanks for the driving impressions. Congrats on the GT3, probably my favorite (besides the GT3 RS) Porsche. They are very technical drives but leave you fully connected to the driving experience. I've heard the GTR doesn't feel like you're driving it near as fast as you are. Not sure how I'd like that.

Congrats to a fellow .2 white GT3 owner! Now be sure to get rid of those orange side markers in favor of the clear Euro ones.
