    Unfortunately Lexus doesn't make a fast car, and hasn't since LFA. I'd rather have this, for the same money, or 10-20k less.



    THe above picture is an accurate representation of Race mode on the QV. Awesome car. I did 10 hot laps in one, back to back with a M3 and the QV is on a different level. 4 door Ferrari. Pre Owned with 10k miles for 50k, will be hard to beat.

    I've got a 14 C2S that I took on trade for my 991.2 Turbo, for sale, 76k (wholesale). I've also got a 87 930 Turbo, I am about to sell. I rarely have personal cars. I kept a Audi R8 for a long time, because prepaid maint and warranty.

    I'm thinking about a S8 for my next daily. They are in the 50s now. That Giulia is sweet, but I like my sedans comfy.

    Is the Toyota/Suby/Scion GT-86 the new 944?

    RWD, 4pot boxer, great handling, fun to drive...?
    Pretty much. In a lot of ways it feels similar on the road too.

    Only problem with the brz is no turbo. I have never driven one, but supposedly a great little car.
    Yeah at that weight it's a GT not a sports car. No turbo in the BRZ isn't a problem at all, heck I've been driving one for over 2 years and still have a valid license It's actually not too difficult or expensive to add one if you need the extra kick. Personally I think I'd go with an electric supercharger rather than turbo. You should try to get out and wring one out for a few hours, it really is a bunch of fun.

    But will it self destruct for no reason in a way that only an Alfa could?

    C'mon over to the right coast and we'll go for a ride. We have some prime twisties to wring a car out on. Bring yours because I've never had a chance to give a 944 a proper shakedown. I'm game whenever you're ready.

    I have a broken/missing bleeder valve on one of my brakes. I know that nothing ceramic is cheap, but this may be....maybe not. Is this something that I can fix myself, or do I need to bring it in? Will it be expensive?

    Rennlist ftw, great resource for stuff like that. Part is likely on PelicanParts. Don't forget to top off the fluid afterwards.

    Not a "missing" bleeder or your brake fluid would be missing, as well. Most likely a snapped one...but that caliper looks way to new to have a rust frozen bleeder. Some knucklehead mechanic snap it and didn't tell you?

    Put it on a bench and try to tap it out, but I've never had luck with tapping out that small of a diameter. You will need a decent machinist's drill press to do a proper job of it. I've heard some have had luck welding a little nib onto to broken part and turning it out...but that depends on what metal the bleeder is made from.

    Take it to a machinist before you order a new caliper...he may be able to get it out for
    cheaper than a caliper.

    Nice wheel, btw. What sled is it off of?

    I'm fascinated by the classic lines of the Maserati Sebring Series 2.

    Both members of the "I wish I was an Aston Martin DB3" club. The 410 SA falls somewhere around the 330 GT on the list of ugliest Ferraris.

    I guess you forgot about the 456



    The 410 SA looks more like a DB5
