Oil, nice ride. Are those 16 x 6's on the front??? Sure looks like it. Put some better rubber on the front, git rid of the 4x4 look with lowering, and it will be a night and day difference in handling.

Yeah they are 16x6's, been searching for a nice set of 16x8's for the front if you know of any. Then the lowering, I agree.

Save some $'s and go for the 17'S already, there are no many tire choices for 16's. +1 lowering it ASAP.

What's that old saying? "There is no such thing as on old 911, just a new owner." Something like that...

I am just a lurker without a 930,

but, sand_man you have WAY too much time on your hands to make an animation like that to tell people to search without actually helping.

I completely agree! However, you have to send a reminder out every now and then, that Wayne's totally awesome and most excellent party-on Porsh forum, does have advanced features like:

looks like your "set it and forget about it" tactic is leaving you with to much time on ur hands. time for a new project!

if you get bored, mine still needs some work :-) . I have only had 5 hours to work on mine in two months! i missed the cool (temp wise) part of the summer :-(

The "while you were in there's" are getting to me again. Started with a simple clutch adjust. Turned into:

Rebuilding pedal cluster (w/ bronze bushings)
Leask WUR
Leask Solenoid
Bump Steer kit
a new fuel line
etc....

I had pretty much everything done, but work is kicking my arse! Just need to find out why my clutch arm is hanging up, tune the WUR, and I am back on the road!
