  1. I'd open up your following distance, and even if someone does slide in front of you, filling the gap, the most you're gonna lose is a microsecond or two when you continue to maintain the proper distance. Considering the consequences otherwise, microseconds are cheap.
  2. That was my "problem"; I couldn't keep the thing in the garage! But keep driving it: the harder the better.
  3. What would it do for a normally aspirated '06-'07 C2S with a manual trans?
  4. According to the link, it looks to me like its features are good only for a PDK equipped car, unless it includes Sport Mode mapping.
  5. Everybody thinks I'm nuts, but if the DMV re-instates my license (I have a hearing coming up next Friday 10 Sept), I wanna get another C2S. The cause of the blackouts was actually a mini-stroke, and if I continue to take the prescribed dosages of Dilantin plus 81mg aspirin daily, I'll be OK. I haven't had another episode since the crash 8 July. My question is: what exactly is the Sports Chrono Package, and is it of any real value? In my search for a suitable '06 replacement, nearly every prospect has the option. My late C2S didn't have it, and frankly, I didn't miss it.
  6. It helps too, to assure the car is level, both laterally and longitudinally. Unfortunately, the car's fuel tank is small, and they use lots of the stuff. You'll get a feel of what constitutes a good fill over time.
  7. I'll wait for the evaluations of my neurologist and the DMV, before I decide. Thanks for your opinion.
  8. Lovely videos, but I'm poor and simply cannot afford a 997.2! And I loved wringing out my C2S manually and doing a little tap-dance on the pedals as I heel-toe-double-clutched my way thru a road much like that in the video. By the way, I called my car The Little Green Monster for the wonderful noises it made going up thru a canyon. It's gonna be tough finding a replacement.
  9. Just got a very decent offer from the ins co. Think I'll start looking for an '06 C2S like Phil suggested. I got lotsa time to find the right one.
  10. Hmm, untamed beast. . . I kinda like the sound of that. . .
  11. Just thinking about a turbo myself to replace my poor totaled C2S, but it would have to be an '05 or older to fit my budget. How are they like to drive compared to a normally aspirated C2S? I'd drive one myself, but the DMV won't let me behind the wheel for another 2-3 months.
  12. Still awaiting word from my insurer re payout and settlement. In the meantime, I'm exploring another possibilty suggested by the body shop: installing a "clip" or a complete front end assy from another C2S; providing they can even find a suitable one. Before everyone runs screaming for the exits at the mere mention of the word, does anyone have any real experience with this kind of repair? Thanks.
  13. These are TOYS--and brutal ones at that--not investments. Those low mileage ones are likely from owners who realized just HOW brutal! And unless you're gonna use your GT3 for competition events, those pricey yaller PCCB's are overkill. But when you find what you're looking for, I'm gonna be extremely jealous!
  14. Phil, I was just thinking about a turbo myself to eventually replace my poor totaled C2S, but an '05 or a 996TT would be better suited to my budget. From reading numerous posts re IMS ssues, the 3.6 turbos seem to be free of that problem. How pronounced is the 'turbo lag'? And do they make the same wonderful deep-chested noises as the big 3.8? I'd go out and drive one myself, but the DMV won't let me do so for another 3 mos.
  15. Just now got back from my doc's and a blood test. I'm seeing him again in 3 wks, and I'll ask him then about Carbatol (sounds suspiciously to me like an injector cleaner ;), so it just might work better for car nuts). I've had no problems however with dilantin absorption, but it's nice to know I'm not alone.
  16. I'll not get my hopes up just yet, after all, these guys are the same outfit that had my car trucked to a salvage/auction yard w/o my permission. Thanks for the well wishes Phil.
  17. I expect a call today. Pretty sure they're supposed to pay me retail value, which is about $ 52K according to KBB, and that's what I originally paid for it a year and a half ago. If that's what the payout will be, I'll take it.
  18. I'm gonna explore all my options re total loss payout vs repair before making my decision. I have one hole card; my insurance co trucked my car off to a salvage yard prematurely and without my permission. I figure they now owe me at least a coupla days to make up my mind.
  19. I fully understand that, but I can't afford another 997C2S. I'm gonna accompany my body shop guy to the yard this PM, and see what he says. We both can be very frank with each other. After I trashed the rt frt wheel/tire and suspension in the AARRGGH incident, I had a 4-wheel alignment done with all angles set to spec, and the car never handled better.
  20. There is a possibility that if my body shop guy says it's repairable, the ins co will let me have the hulk, less the salvage value, and if there's enough $$ left over, I'll have it hauled over to his shop for repair. He said that with some expensive cars, it's quite do-able, and that I might even come out ahead. Watch this space.
  21. Bad news: It's a total. Thanks to all for the replies.
  22. As long as my dilantin blood levels are within the normal range, I'm OK (they were a bit low at the time and my dosage has since been increased), but I understand your point; the last thing I want is to hurt anybody. That's also the reason why my license was suspended for 3 months and yes, that'll be a tough decision I'll have to make if my driving privileges are restored.
