Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

Found something I don't like about LED headlights....... I was driving home last night in our X3 and it was very cold and light snow. Normally the headlight are great and the high beams through far. I noticed that everything seemed diffused. I pulled into a gas station and the headlights were iced o...

Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

Hard to see in the pic but are those pink calibers or just red ones that have been overheated? "Tasteful" very "tasteful" indeed. Yes, pink/magenta/purple calibers, and no, not from being overheated. Someone actually intentionally made them that color. Despite all of the other m...

Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

My left ear is collateral damage from years of abuse, mostly from crappy venues in the 90's and gun ranges. I finished off the right ear shooting my 50-cal black-powder pistol...my noise-cancelling headphones crapped out right before I fired a round. I couldn't hear out of that ear for days and it'...

Re: Garmin Catalyst

I got a Garmin Catalyst a few months ago. If you don't know, it's for track driving. Supposedly it identifies areas where you can improve your driving in real time, and can communicate them to you via voice over a bluetooth connection. It has other features too. Because it divides the track into sm...

Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

Speaking of my esteemed San Diego brethren, I am currently sitting at the San Diego Region PCA concours. Gorgeous backdrop for the event. Typically beautiful San Diego weather. A lot of very nice cars, and a few spectacular ones. Even in the parking lot. I was hoping they would be selling SDRPCA t-...

Re: rack'm!

Damn, it's a good thing you didn't buy a Boxste'. sddefault.jpg I never watched this show, but did they really call a Boxster a chick car? I mean, its a convertible I guess. There are a lot of other ones they could have chosen like a Miata. On a related note, the oldest is two years away from her l...

Re: Macan Without a Sunroof

Frankly I don't give a rats ass for a sunroof. I virtually never use a sunroof, other than to pop it open on a hot day to let the hot air out. Loved my 986 and rag tops are different . My 996 Targa is basically a big sunroof and a $15k repair if it breaks. I can't remember the last time I actually o...

Re: Don't Feel Bad About Checking Parts Prices

Ive been buying form Gaudin for years. They typically have the lowest $$ for genuine Porsche parts anywhere. Yea, if a a small order for low cost parts, the shipping cost can eat into the savings FCP does have one really good perk. Unless it has changed, everything comes with lifetime warranty and f...
