Time to buff the Miata headlights.
Took this photo before driving off the lot after it was washed and prepped for me. See anything...unusual?
It's been a long time since I drove a 986 but there's more engine noises compared to the 981, however I had the sport exhaust so that pretty much overwhelmed everything else.I had a 2008 base cayman, then a 2014 cayman s and now a 2014 base boxster.
My question is do you get the nice engines and belts sound out of the 2009 that you would from the 2008 and earlier caymans?
Before I got the boxster, i had 2009 and up in my sights. Just couldn't find one and when I did it was in the $30s.
I also think the base cars are more fun because you can keep your foot in the gas more.
Every time I've picked up a car from dealer, they do 2 things: wash it and fill up the gas tank. Seems silly to try to save $20 on their part.no, i don't (unless it's lack of a CEL or something like that); didn't see this answered yet (or i'm just blind)...
funny, you've seen my Z4C 3.0si and I was just browsing for Caymans this morning; they seem to hold their value better & are more expensive than comparable Boxsters...
well, nice pick-up OP, congrats hope to see it/you at the next TCL meet-n-drive!
Yeah, but would your finance guy say "awesome credit score, bro!" and proceed to tell me how "Porsche tires" are really expensive?! Hmmm?Shouldve bought from FJA, we will up all of our cars
i really want to own a mid-engined car at some point, and the P-twins seem to be the mo$t viable option...What made you start looking at Caymans? I remember your Z4... didn't your brakes overheat on Latigo? I need to sit inside it to see how the seats feel. The ones in the Z3 were really stiff with no support.
I can't speak for a Porsche but VWs will not let the driver over rev with DSG with factory software.Is it possible to over rev a PDK version of this?
Fun fact -I can't speak for a Porsche but VWs will not let the driver over rev with DSG with factory software.
A VW will automatically upshift at predetermined limits. I have never bought aftermarket DSG software. I assume that aftermarket software would just bounce on the rev limiter in manual mode and not allow an over rev event. The DSG will not downshift to the next gear until it determines it is safe to do so. Click all you want and downshift happen until it's safe.
An over rev event could be a concern with Kiznash's car since it's a manual. PDK not so much.
Will it? I had my truck in 2nd and I let off at 5500-5600rpm because it seemed like it definitely wasn't going to :laugh:Fun fact -
The GMT800 trucks 1999-2006 GM trucks will upshift as well.
Even if you put the column shifter in 1 or 2, if you floor it and hold RPM’s for a few seconds it’ll start shifting through the gears like you’ve got it in drive.
Makes sense, especially when they were under warranty.
Sure, it's possible, but it's unlikely. My understanding is that it will bounce off the rev limiter without up-shifting, but won't let you downshift if there aren't enough revs to do so.Is it possible to over rev a PDK version of this?
Lol tough titties to his bonus check! I'm pretty sure you got the superior automobile. Good choice I'd be lying if I said I wasn't even a tiny bit jealous - I don't commute anymore so driving is a treat for me these days, and that tdi.... She's a slug.Oh I'm pretty sure no one was disappointed. Well, except maybe the dealer GM.
