    40 something???

    Hell I'm 50-something, and nothing has fallen off yet. Enjoy.

    Re: Got My S. Too Bad I'm 40-something

    Glad to hear you are really enjoying it! Yes, head and shoulders above the M3 in precision and feedback. But, I can imagine more -- am already thinking about the upcoming GT3, Turbo, or at least stiffer springs, exhaust, headers,etc. It is definitely a vehicle that sneaks up on you, the power is so linear. I'm the kind that is always looking for something even better, but this thing is so freakin' perfect.

    I am 65 and the fun is still there for me, too.

    Re: 40 something???

    Yeah, age is a mental thing. My original intention fellas, was to say that the car is more than enough fun and has more than enough HP for the streets than anybody over 40 could reasonably ask for (presumably when you reach 40 your road ethics and risk-assessment skills vastly improve). My younger cousins say 355 HP is for wussies!

    Re: 40 something???

    MMD,

    Congratulations! Your chronological age may be >40, but you'll feel like a kid tooling around in the 911. Wait until you drive a 997TT...

    Re: Got My S. Too Bad I'm 40-something

    MMD,
    Would love to see other pics of your car .

    ps: Glad you like the speed shine.

    ... though it sounds like you're ready for a Benz or maybe a Lexus.



    LOL! Yeah, I thought of that, ha! Nah, not yet at least, but I tell ya, as many already know, this 997/S is an intense car to drive. I can imagine it becoming too much (for routine use) when we're "X" years (you fill in the "X") and older.



    MMD, don't worry, that will not happen. A relative of mine nears 70 years and still uses a 911 as a daily driver
    He had more than 30 Porsches in his life and the only thing that he changed a few years ago was the he changed from a manual to a tip. Hmm, and now he regrets not having switched to a tip earlier
