I am in the same boat as most of these responses. I for one couldn't afford to drive what I choose to drive if I paid someone to work on it. In most cases fixing a car is like an on/off switch. The fix either works or it doesn't. If you need to change a water pump in a 996 for instance, the pump will either work and not leak, or it will be immediately apparent that something is wrong, and you need to fix it. Same with most other jobs. There is a lot to be said about fine tuning, but for the most part I figure that I can turn a wrench and read a Bentley manual just as well as the next guy. Also, having explicit forum instructions from former DIYers is always helpful.

I enjoy wrenching on my car, and it is always a bit of an adrenalin rush starting the car for the first time after you have spent time doing major surgery on a motor, haha.
