Awesome car, Brian! It's almost as nice as my BLACK 930! LOL (just kidding). No really, great color and great stance.

After you have figured out where your oil leak(s) are and have repaired them...And have had some time to enjoy your ride, there are a couple of other oil lines you should make a note of. The ones that lead to your cam covers at each rear side of the engine...And the worst oil line of all! The dreaded one that starts at the top front of the engine (just right of center a 6"-8" back from where the engine meets the tranny) as a banjo where an oil sending unit is and leads across the top of the crankcase down to the turbo. The metal banjo unit leads to a 14"-18" steel line that leads into a rubber line over the rear left cylinder somewhere before leading down to the turbo. If this is leaking, you must take off your IC and parts beneath your IC to get to the line. If you ever have to take this one out, I suggest loosening both ends completely, and then pulling it through from the back left. You will have to bend the steel line and probably cut the rubber line to get it out. Replace with a SS braided line using the stock end fittings. FYI, replacing all your stock lines with SS braided ones using the metal fittings that came off your stock hoses, will probably be a lot cheaper than buying the stock ones. Good luck and have fun!
