I'd like to get new wheels at some point but that's all as I like the originality of the car. I lucked out as I live about an hour from the nearest dealer and in an area that doesn't seem to have a lot of older european cars but there's a guy literally 5 miles from me that is from europe, he trained as a Porsche mechanic and then moved to Canada to be the mechanic for Porsche racing in the Can Am series I believe. They guy is a genius and all he works on is Porsche. Enjoy your bug, they are a great car.
Which Fister? Stage 2 or 3? I want to upgrade to a Faster stage 2..... just want to make sure it doesn't make the car sound like a kids Honda.

Lol. The kids always say my M is my girlfriend. They were teasing me saying I don't love my girlfriend since I got my new girlfriend. I laughed, told them I had a mistress..... a 25 year old mistress. Hey, if you're going to have a mistress....

The 997's are beautiful cars. Great value buy right now but they go like crazy. Not going wrong with any 911.

Stage 2, it sounds really good in my opinion. Nice and throaty and nice rumble. I think its the way a Porsche should sound.

And you get to say "Fister" when you're talking about your exhaust.....it never gets old.

Oh boy.... We really do. Which one is the "right" one? To be honest I'm liking the BBS e80 in silver too.

I took a quick video of my Bug idling if that helps. The video doesn't really do the sound justice but I think it'll give you an idea.
