That's not far from the truth. Kalim showed me his wheel bearing, we looked at rick's parts and giggled a little, and Kalim saw my surprise parts that my sales representative added in as a gift.

Ymmv.
The Khumos have been nice on both my van and the 996. Not the best for performance, but they work fine for daily drivers.

Cliffs: Miles, Kalim and roughly a dozen people I dont know were there and it was cold. Sweet Alpina 8 series, couple e30s, several e36 and 8-10 e46s.

On the ride home I passed some dude in a lowered and chromed out e36 and then moments later he shot by doing like 120 and weaving like a madman. At this point it was time for bed.

Sidenote: blue bbs installed and window reg fixed with help of mkodama. Son asked me this morning: "where is your robot friend?" Per my intimation that Mires build battlebots. From hereon out Mkodama known to me as "robot friend." Also, does anyone know how to make a picture into a massive vinyl wrap? Please advise.

On the drive to Milpitas, a Golf R started toying with me but they were driven like an asshat so I ignored them for the most past. Then on the drive home I was toying with a Fox body Mustang and also a C55 AMG.
You were toying with them?

On the positive side, I got to enjoy the inside of Dru's interior which was very soft and warm.

2 Porsche 997 GT3
1 Porsche 997 GT3RS
1 Nissan GTR
1 G-wagon with polizei vinyls and safari rack on the top
1 Audi R8 V10
dozens of E46 M3s
a few oddballs like a really clean S50 swapped E30, 4 nice E36 M3s, a 2002tii, Kalim's ketchup sedan, and some Z4 coupes.
wow I missed out big time...

The Mustang wasn't very fast and they kept trying to pass in the slow lane only to get stuck behind slower traffic.

The C55 blew past me doing ~100 mph then backed off and I hung with them for a couple miles.
