thanks!

it is a cayman s.

i absolutely love it. i like that it's mid engine so it handles awesome and it's like the engine is in the backseat riding with you. you can hear all kinds of great engine noises. sometimes i just have to turn off the radio so i can enjoy it all.

i understand why it's getting such great reviews now too. it's pretty damn fast and it makes you smile all the time. 0-60 in 4.6 so it's the same or faster than some of it's 911 brothers. the power is always there too. it's very responsive and wants you to go fast. i have to hold back all the time cuz it's like a lil devil on my shoulder jumping up and down. heheh

it's my first two seater sports car though so that might be some of the fun factor? idk it just feels good, man.

not sure yet. i've been looking around and i'm leaning toward something lipless with only a few spokes that you can floss your teeth with. i saw some lambo's with something like that and i really enjoy it.

as far as other mods go; i got tints within a day of receiving it, the wheels as discussed, and partially debadging it. maybe lower but i'm not sure because i had trouble getting over some large speed bumps yesterday and that made me think abt it. other than that, i'm going to wait before i make a list because i know my addiction for mods can get out of control. lol

Lmao glad to hear you're enjoying it. As for the lowering, that would be a bitch if you're still at the same residency...those bumps blow haha.

I guess its smart to go slow...you may even sell the car by the time you start

yea, those bumps are the effing worst esp going down from the top floor. we have abt a year before we buy a place because we can't decide where we want to move. which reminds me, how do you like your neighborhood? we stayed at that resort there once and did the whale watching stuff. it was fun but seemed like an older crowd. obviously we weren't there long enough to know. i like some of the houses there.

hehe i've noticed i get the itch to change cars every two years so my mods get more and more subtle. i have some mandatory stuff that gets done right away. luckily, this car doesn't need much.

Not a problem, always here to help. And yea I just passed 100k not to long ago, and I am wanting to get some serious maintenance down, even if it does not need it just yet, my sister cant take care of a car (let alone a BMW) to save her life, so I just wanted to make sure that my E90 stays with me for some time to come. But I will probably need help.
