    987s are totally an underrated value on the used market. Enjoy the car!


    Yes, it was the Golden Gate Chapter's school. CCA schools are great for beginners and intermediate drivers because they are really well-structured and there's always an instructor in the car with you. Some of the more advanced students find the schools a bit conservative, but you'll learn to drive your car very well (and very fast) in a safe, controlled way. They are now starting to experiment with more advanced skills and exercises for the advanced group to retain some students who are going to open track days: open passing, side-by-side driving, trail braking, more advanced situational awareness, etc.

    So true. It's a miserable experience, and stopping at a stop light or driving in slow traffic is unbearable.

    this should be a fun little drive
    Audi TT RS
    the more I read about it, the more I am interested in driving one, but a 2 seater is a no go for my needs

    funny, i was thinking exactly BBS. it just seems to have such a heritage with BMW that they look like they belong together. plus their reputation for quality is huge. HRE also is tempting, because i am a SF'er after all and they are a 'bespoke' wheel manufacturer :D

    yes sir

    agreed. exotic material too (titanium), that also should appeal to a SFer
