    pcosta:

    997s are great driver cars. I had a 2006 997S with X51. Concerned with Porsche going full turbo I bought a 2016 911GTS, sold it with 1,100 miles and bought a 2012 997 GTS. Hidraulic Steering, Manual and fun to drive even at 40-50 miles on winding roads. Much happier ... will not sell.

    Yes, Porsche has reached diminishing returns:  bigger, fatter, faster is not needed.  The light responsive feeling of those is just fabSmiley

    Initial comments on first drive:

    1. Why did I need a GT2RS, this rig is quick!!
    2. Frank was right, the gear set is perfect!!! And what a jewel of a shifter!!!

    The vaunted RR unreliability has reared its ugly, useless head at 12,000 miles. Locks/unlocks, plenty of battery, but starter button and dash completely dead.  Luckily it happened in the driveway at home, instead of 18 miles Way Back In every day with no service.

    2019 supercharged RR doing what they do best, going to the dealer 170 miles:  windows down, sunroof open, front wheels turnedmail  Time for a Ford RaptorSmiley

    Yes, but nothing runs, when it runs, better hammer down with 4 Labs Malibu-Northern Rockies at 135-140 mph better!  With mild off road hiking at day's end too.  But I've been dreading and expecting this outcome.Smiley

    Thanks Joe,

    I'm looking at it, hard to tell if it can take the offroad sh.t but seems so, and fit 4 Labs.  I no longer do the big runs at 135-140 mph so the power differential less relevant than total reliability so I appreciate the tip

    Weird, we had two Vogues from new 2014-2018 and there were zero issues, the new G63 from 2018 however has been back to the dealer for problems twice and had the mobile Merc service out three times, mainly electric stuff in fact even now it keeps activating the tracker with a low battery even tho the battery was replaced.

    The further in, and up [7800' here], we get the colder and snowier it remains.  Here, still 8 miles from our favourite jump off, the road unlikely to be driveable until late June even with a poor snow year

    Anyone else using a Valentine and just pissed off at their sh.tty suction cups that never stick to the windshield? Total crap [PS those cups NOT attached to winshield]

    Here's my rig for the Grand Cherokee loaner.  Because.... slowing down is just not an option

    have not used the Valentine for a few years.

    back then, when it dropped off, a very tiny bit of saliva usually worked...

    I hope Mike sees this...definitely some room for improvement. Smiley

    I am still surprised Valentine doesn't put something new and more sophisticated on the market, there would be so many possibilities. Smiley I don't have a clue about radar warners though and even less clue of this business.

    The dictator of Ohio closed Mike's shop, so I can even reach them.  For the Touring, I took the vacuum cup off my Redline tuned for NZ and banded it to the Valentine.  Escort told me thee international units can't be converted to US frequencies, but their mount works.

    Oh, I've tried spit etc they just continue to fall off, especially when you need to change cars, hit bumps etc. 

    Speed traps?  No but  Sheriffs and Highway Patrol run with their radar on, and some do instant on, although they cut people a lot of slack in the Northern Rockies: I had to take a call from the surgeon about Sun Ra's eye removal, and spaced out a 45 mph at 85, and the Sheriff kindly let me slide, and of course when I went through to pick her up, I drove 45 every time in his honour.

    OK Mike,

    Here's my rig for the Touring - pulled the Redline windshield cup, since yours are so useless.  I have 4 of your units, but doubt I'll buy more.  The RedLine was better in NZ, so maybe it's better here

    I was so interested in seeing where this thread was headed and you just spoiled it.  Noticed Mike had a new device on the market and will acquire it once things return to near normal.
