There's a price (of over a grand cdn) for Museum delivery for checking that free box on the Corvette.
I'm not sure, I'll let you know after I set up a GTAM go fund me page to help me buy one.I'm wondering (but not enough to google) if the new NSX has this system too?
If yes, that just sucks the fun right out of the testing track ride.
Enjoy your nsx Sunny!
As a new owner of a Corvette, you're entitled to a much better experience at Spring Mountain with Ron Fellows, and you get to tear up their car, instead of your own.Nice try. Those are all packages you have to pay for (and yeah, $2500 for the cheapest package.....).
Corvette has the same experience on their own track beside the plant btw........starting at $220.
I only bought it because I was too sick to ride.Why would you sell the one you have? Not a fan?
As good a reason as any. Congratulations on your recovery and hopefully you've got many years left! I'd buy the car but way out of my price range lol.I only bought it because I was too sick to ride.
The dr gave me a 50/50 chance of surviving (a short period), and I didn't want to "take it $ with me".
Well, I survived, and after 4 yrs on the sidelines, I'm (more than) ready to ride again.
And, in all honesty........riders are more fun to kill time with than high end car owners. I don't fit the bill.
But.....if I didn't like riding, or have it in my dna, this car would be a whole lot better.
Supposedly the M3's engine has a flaw where the rod bearings like to cook themselves at a very high rate. It's considered to be a pretty risky buy.looking at possibly adding a car to the garage either this year or next, have it narrowed down to either a Porsche 996, because childhood dreams, or E92 M3 because V8.
anyone own either or both and can offer a first hand opinion?
I have an E46 M3 and there was a bearing recall in the early years and I believe a recommendation to change to Castrol TWS 10w60 oil. Over 300,000 kms and going, driven all year round and nothing other than scheduled maintenance.Supposedly the M3's engine has a flaw where the rod bearings like to cook themselves at a very high rate.

I believe it's with all of the V8 M3s (not specific years) and it is a pretty well known issue. It's also not a particularly trivial process to change the bearings out, and you're buying the car assuming no current damage has already been done (causing other components to be scrapped).

From what I can tell, there was a similar issue with the early bearing design on the E9x M3. I wouldn't expect any difference in reliability after replacing them:
