    Had the M8 as a dd for a month last summer, it’s an absolute monster when you floor it. On the verge of intimidating but lots of fun. Would probably still go for the 850, bit more civilised/suited for our European roads and still packing a serious punch. 

    Thank you Sr. SpudGun,

    That sounds perfect, I think I'll seek the ceramic brakes then, maybe they're superfluous....  but sounds like I might need themSmiley

    One upmanship -- Ceramics in PORSCHE country are yellow calipers --- in BMW country, they're GOLDkiss

    Nothing to write home about in looks, but...  0-60 in 2.5 seconds at 4400 lbs is rather impressive.

    Classy spec 👌🏼, interested in your feedback...

    Will do!  Should be highly amusing... maybe winter tires too.

    This purchase was interesting as the first cracks in the car markets appeared:  $10k under for a brand new 2023.  Simultaneously, I moved my 2022 turbo S with 2200 miles for $43k over, so they're still strong if not higher than 6 months ago.

    We may start to see some values this year.

     


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Very sharp spec! Shades of Grey/silver over tan/brown are always my favorite combo.

    German dealer over here offered me a BMW M4 Convertible with 12% discount, the M8 Convertible with 16% discount and even the new M3 CS I ordered with 5% discount (without me even asking SmileySmiley).
    Mercedes? 3% for the SL63 AMG but only because I am a "good" customer (had three AMG Mercedes in the past 36 months). BMW dealers here are still generous but not for long: BMW, Mercedes and VW will switch to a different dealer/manufacturer franchise model, where the orders are basically made through the manufacturer and the dealers are only the ones who deliver and take care of the cars. Meaning: No discounts anymore. Smiley Not sure how this system will be received here in Germany, I think many customers will switch to different manufacturers, unless of course the others start to use the same model. 

    I wonder what would happen if BMW, Mercedes and Co. would introduce the same system in the USA? Dealers wouldn't be amused I guess. 

    You made the right decision for your needs, Watt. Congratulations. Very nice and fast car and very reliable as well from what I heard. SmileySmiley

    Interesting RC.  We've had such a hot market virtually everything has been over window for a couple years, and dealers were proud of the selves for staying at window.  My second TRX, which I ordered in December is the first window car I've seen.  Pistas were over 100, etc last year.

    HaHa,

    Country living!  We have 300 gallons of Super premium ethanol free, and red diesel conveniently located by the barn.  The ethanol free premium is .50 per gallon cheaper at home than at the 2 stations we have in town.  The custom designed fuel truck that delivers is amazing, he can mix 5 different fuels on site.

    I’m surprised you’re not vertically integrated with a few oil wells and refinery somewhere back in the woods.

    Haha,

    The Rockies are pretty self sufficient with substantial oil and gas production, and our own refineries in SLC and Casper:

    HaHa,

    Who knows what surprises will come to pass!  The 80' semi got close to the property in 8 new inches, and the 4wd of the mighty M8 came the rest.

    While my new hip is healing, I'll look for snows.

    Why be tied to silly rules and a brand?  More fun to go on your Ferrari binge.... and just stop.  And go on an other, and another.....Smiley

    -----------

    Another 2 feet yesterday, we've had about 15' fall so far -- it's been a very good winter.  As the hip heals and the narcotics end, I'll jump on the ToolCat and move the excess white stuff; some prudent delay. as narcotics and new construction equipment tend to clash.Smiley

    BTW, the white "smoke" on the ridge in the background is an avalanche starting; we've been listening to Boom after Boom as they crash down - why we're in BoomBoom CountrySmiley

    Thank you Pilot.  RC doesn't like the snow, he thinks sand is better.

    Sun Ra has taken the most interesting movie, here are some stills from it....  Hark, what do I see?
