  1. I bought the Pioneer AVH-3400 NEX because I have the GT3 console delete in my car. It’s easy enough to put the screen down when you need to access the HVAC controls. I have a power amp and a custom ported speaker built into the spare. It sounds great. Nice to have a solid in-car Bluetooth phone solution and navigation as well. It only falls down on AM reception.
  2. The USA Soccer team was robbed in that game with Slovenia!

  3. I am the second owner of my 2002 996 Carrera Cabriolet. I bought it used as an uncertified car from a Porsche dealer in New Jersey with 25K on the odometer. It had a clean CarFax and I have only had a few problems - the worst being a cracked coolant tank and a clutch replacement at 33K (I blame the original owner/lessee as I have never killed a clutch). I knew about the RMS issue and have been reading about the IMS issue in 996/997 engines of this vintage. The RMS installed by the dealer during the clutch job is the upgraded unit and I had my service advisor check the work order for the job - which shows the upgraded bolt for the IMS being installed at the same time. I now have a little over 35K on the car and the only issue is a rattle at start-up on the left side of the car. The dealership checked it out but said that there was nothing wrong. Based on what I've read on the PCA tech site and here that can be either loose exhaust/cat baffles or - in one post - a noise made by the IMS. What are the odds that I still need to worry about an IMS failure on this engine?
