    basically my point. All of those are fairly standard for NYC, though seeing them all in a line is not.



    Supercar heaven is summer time in London where all of the oil kings go for holiday and they bring their Veyrons, Koenigseggs, LP-670's, etc. The only car I haven't seen in London is the Zonda, though I'm sure a few are rolling around. Just go you youtube and look up something like "London 2011 Koenigseggs" or something like that, there's plenty of videos.

    ^ google Arab week London instead ;)



    It really depends on what and where you drive.

    I hate stop and go traffic in a manual, especially with a heavy clutch.

    But doing back roads in a auto is boring.



    Aren't Wald kits crazy expensive I heard a S-class bumper kit is 20k$+.

    I would go QP.

    So, maybe not the right thread or even forum, but I am looking at used Porsche 997s and some of the pricing seems to make no sense. Some of the 997.2's are cheaper than 997.1's with similar options and in some instances the 997.2's have better options (S version, etc.) and even less mileage! Are dealers just stubborn about reducing price? Even if that's the case, they clearly must accept the concept of time decay on the value of these things. So can it be assumed that a dealer is much more likely to accept a lower bid on those 997.1's? It's bewildering. Not to mention, some of these people have 997.1's priced close to Turbo territory.

    Three weeks in DC and I have seen 62 M3s, 19 Maseratis, one each DBS, DB9, and Vanquish, Ferrari 599. F355, F360, a number of Bentley CGTs, innumerable Caymans and 911s, half a dozen C63 AMGs, two SL65 AMGs, and an incredible number of '80s BMWs. Crazy place.

    Only every blue moon is there something special on the streets of Indy, which is why I enjoy visiting Chicago, NYC, DC, Phoenix, and other major cities where you're treated to an impromptu car show.

    I've sat for years in thousands of hours of traffic hell known as the 405 in LA and I think there was maybe two instances where I wished I had an automatic. Then I thought nah.

    Love the heavy clutch pedal in the m3 I can sit in traffic for hours and be entertained, today I lit a ciggy in the car bc traffic was so bad and I didn't give a fuck. This was the third time I've ever done this.

    993 is the most beautiful 911 ever.



    WTF, bottom right... is NYC lettering their streets in a ghost / horror movie font?




    You should post on the F1 thread....

    They are very popular here with blonde women of a certain age. Good car nevertheless.

    haha, my girl isn't blonde but it would be hers and I'd drive it now and again, just curious if its horrendous on gas like some of its sibling models and if its terribly small in the drivers seat.
