My Subaru wrx was a flat. I donít remember the sound to be particularly remarkable in anyway, but sound is subjective

I love the V8 sound and a close friendís straight piped Silverado was one of my favorite sounding trucks that Iíve ever seen.

Flat 4-cylinder motors sound very different than 6s. Here's an example of a flat 6:

Well all those parts were going to be ordered. I did pay for the downpipe haha if they won't return it (and I don't see why), then I will consider it sunk cost or try to sell it here.

I am getting the most famous P-car with a turbo and an "S" The new one!

The M240i's fate will be... well, let's see.

Well this one is going to be a convertible I am just beginning the process of "figuring this all out". More than likely this will be a custom order.

Well... I am sure it is going to be a custom order. We will see. However with the level of customization Porsche offers, I won't be finding one off the lot. Or pretty damn lucky if I do. I have been educating myself on the P-car.

And yes, the M240i may remain. This car is magical. I am just so in love with it. So is the wife. It is, truly, a sweet car. Just the perfect package.
