911s evoke emotion, it's why we love them. But a drawback is it rouses the animal spirits in nearby drivers, so you get the racers and M3/M5 drivers wanting to compete. And then there's the baseline fact that people are crazy, which doesn't help.

What's the difference between a porcupine and a Porsche?

The porcupine has pricks on the outside.

Thanks for the care package, man! It wasn't necessary, but it's appreciated.

I've already applied one of the caliper stickers to my phone case. Yes, I'm a tool.

Glad you got it. Not sure if you have Advance Auto Parts in your area, but the same group owns Car Quest. You may be able to use that gift card online too. Cheers!!!

Anybody got a couple of these bolts? They are used to lock the rear seats.

One consideration: graphite is electrically conductive. Most likely a non-issue, but I prefer to use dry silicon spray when electronics/electrical is involved.

Don't lube external latches with WD, ,etc. Use graphite powder. Doesn't attract grime and dirt like liquid lubricants would.
