  1. The hood and front bumper on my 2002 Targa was painted by the previous owner. Perfect color match but surfaces could have been prepped better. Some people wouldn't notice the imperfections but they stick out to me. Definitely won't harm resale value. Because if it's done right they shouldn't be able to tell it was done. If I ever do mine I'll consider trying that new 3M spray on.
  2. I wash mine in freezing temps but nothing below 25 degrees and only when I'm able to park it in direct sunlight to make sure it has a chance to drip dry without freezing me out of it.
  3. I ran Blizzak LM 22's on my Honda S2000 and while yes it could get thru snow it certainly didn't inspire any degree of confidence. Switched out to Blizzak WS 60's made ALL the difference. Like a tractor in snow but the tradeoff was pretty poor in dry conditions whereas the LM22's were quite good on dry pavement.
  4. Have about 68k on my 2002 Targa. Had 62k when I purchased it back in April. I plan for this to be pretty much my daily driver 8 months out of the year and seeing I average about 18,000 miles a year, my Porsche will see 8-10k of that. Should have 100k plus in no time. Original clutch, IMS and RMS but plan to have all that taken care of next spring.
