My Ride: 2011 BMW 135i
British Racing Green (or whatever the color code is) is one of the best colors on a 911

Absolutely agree. Precision IS the word. It's funny, too because I have a lot of friends who are like "oh yeah I want a 911 so bad" and I ask them, Have you ever driven one? "No"....

It blows me away because to be honest, I don't think the 911 is for everyone. It is very demanding. My car, being a 6MT with the factory short throw kit, PCCB's and tight fitting Adaptive Sport Seats make for one HELL of a ride that I KNOW that MANY of my friends couldn't handle day to day... not to mention the speed factor.

btw- I have seen those pics before when you showed me, but it didn't hurt to look again. What a ride

Thank you so much for the compliment! I am sorry though, I wont say how much on a public forum.

Here's a few pics of my old Z4M Coupe. '07 Alpine White/Imola Red, Loaded to the gills










too bad the Porsche wasn't the same color combo as your z

I'm kinda torn between a P-car and a lotus for my next one.

As awesome as the Z4 M Coupe was, it was tough as a daily driver for 3.5 years. The Porsche feels so much more relaxing in comparison. Demanding, yes, but it doesn't feel like a chore.

Pics were for M3Inline6, his request. Admittedly I was conflicted posting them in your thread. Feels kind of insulting to do that, sorry.

definitely will do when I get a little more serious (about a year when I get back in the states).

How different? Both designed to be auto-cross monsters, no? Granted lotus is lighter weight w/ smaller engine.

this is what I was talking about in my above post. why do you want a 993? Because its the last of the air cooled porsches? You like the way it looks? Until you drive one, you'll never really know.

People tell me they want a 993 all the time and can't justify why other than the fact that it's "cool"..... I am not trying to be harsh but just hoping you see my point

ok... I get that you're not tryin to be harsh... but when you say "2 totally different rides man" I expect at least SOME elaboration. You've obviously got more experience (since you can even comment on the comparison)... TELL ME. don't just gimme this ambiguous "you just don't understand" BS.
