Re: What's in your toolbag?

Triple square's are kind of a must for working on VAG products... Almost every seat base is held down with them. And while I love quality tools and would love the Hazet's, my $20 set of triple squares from Amazon has held up fine.... https://www.amazon.com/Neiko-10056A-Triple-Square-10-Piece/dp/B004...

Nicely done.

I have lots of tools and equipment, but a metal lathe isn't one of them.

Re: Panamera Buyer's Guide - Your Input Needed!

Gen 1 Turbo Panny's are available for silly cheap money, well at least compared to their original sticker price! They drive great, are fairly practical, highly reliable without any IMSB-esque weaknesses to speak of, often were owned by cost-no-object owners who had their detailer come to clean their...

OK, the 991 forum is dead, so how about kicking it off... I'm a current 996 Turbo owner. Love it, but always looking for the 'next' Porsche. 997 Turbo is one of the leading contenders, but I'm also intrigued about the possibility of picking up a 991.2 base. I love forced induction, and while much of...
