So posting a couple of pics....

Yes, I have to run a front plate now because previous owner had holes and it appears that audi built in a nook for it anyway .

But as I was putting it on, thinking of plastidipping all chrome on front including rings and rings around fogs except for the red on the S and the mirrors and trim to see how it looks before a more permanent solution just to see how it looks. Thoughts?

My body shop client is gonna paint the red parts of the tails and ambers from front heads.

Also, got a quote on suntek tints at $185. Gotta look to see if this car has known scratching issues first. suntek from what i recall is a good brand correct?

Series of events. Basically, i realized I couldn’t drive it all year round as I am moving in a month or so and my commutes going to more than quadruple. So I decided to daily drive/winter a second car to keep the miles down on the 911. When I went and test drove a 17k 09 mini s, it was a very fun, rock solid car for the price of the 911. It made me wonder if it was worth the $1,450 a month I am paying on it.

After some soul searching and admitting that the old girl has some flaws that her age is really showing and some draw backs that are minor individual, but always in the back of my head.

The car is stressing me when I put miles on it and stresses me to leave it sit and depreciate.

Until I can afford a 911 that’s only 2-3 years old, its time to get into something young, but sporty. I am seriously leaning towards a 1m now.
