OUCH, headache!!
My head is killing me, back of the head, leftside. (No, I did not get donkey punched...)

Jeff mailed me yesterday, yadda yadda some blablabla, blah yadda yadda bla!
Also, I know a set of 15X11 and 15x9 Fuchs for sale, locally. partnumbers of the rears check out, the two front wheels have a different no. than I would expect.
I asked for a price, but he wouldn't give me one, he's letting the auction run.... He says he's not an expert and has no idea what they're worth. He does know they're rare....
I'm keeping my eyes open, not that I really need them but if I can get them cheap.... who knows.

And also: GOODMORNING GUYS!

Hmm.... Sleep wrong? Hard pillow? Blod clot?


Morning.... 15x9 and 15x11... Those would look like sex under a 944... if they'd even fit...

Again, nice talking with you Sidney. I was being ushered out as they had to lock the lab I was in up and I didn't have my keys, but I'll call you again sometime when I iron out more details.

Sounds good.... I'm anxious.... Even though I don't have much time either in these next few weeks...

Dad and I will start arguing over a paint scheme soon... Part of me says gulf... Part of me says a nice white with some subtle stripes ala Martini....

I'm thinking the 944 would need fender flares for those beasts....

Something like this, I suppose. (but this one actually is a 924 GTR)

Morning, guys.

I have a slightly neurotic tech question for you guys. Out of laziness and the fact that I only drove my 85 Carrera some 1500 miles last summer, I skipped the oil change. Since then she has been hibernating the last six months. Now I have the yearly MOT this week and I have negotiated a valve check with a Porsche tech in about a month (obviously with an oil change).

I want to drive her this coming month before the valve job. Should I:

1. Change the oil this week and fill her up with some cheap stuff to avoid driving with two and a half years of old oil for a month and then change for a better quality at the valve job, or

2. Just drive this month with the old oil (SWEPCO 306)?

I know, how neurotic is that..

Change the oil.

BUT NEVER WITH CHEAP STUFF, YOU DOOFUS!!

Oil is the blood of your car, do not use lesser quality.

And Marcus, please, an oil change is as difficult as filling it up at the gas station....
Get a big enough recipient, unscrew 2 bolts, drain oil, screw in two bolts, fill with new oil.
It is that easy.
Also, you could change the oil filter, to be sure.
Next step is doing your own valves....

Thanks, G.

You know I have done all the service on my car so far myself, including valve adjustments. This time I feel too lazy and decided to let my friend do it. The oil and filter will naturally be changed when he does the valves, but as I said that is not for a month or so. As I want to drive the car in the meantime, I was thinking that its better to put in some fresh oil than to drive with the old one, but that I could save my money for a good oil until the valve change.

If you plan on replacing it before the valve adjustments, you might as well use good quality oil...

No worries, G. They are rudimentary at best.

morning fellas.

thanks for ratting out my planned betrayal to the air-cooled brotherhood, G.

We'll see what happens. the car has been picked up and I plan on driving it a couple of times before I do anything rash. I have found a bunch of nice GT3's for sale CHEAP though...

Oh, and congrats on surpassing 10,000!!

If I could find that perfect 2004 GT3 for around 50 large I would be at my bank asking for a loan. I try hard to not go looking. I really like being debt free.
