From the complaints dept:Good question! I could be wrong about this, it wouldn't be the first time, but it's my opinion that, no matter how expensive it may be, no one in Africa is hungry enough to eat a car.Have a great day,MM
Why choose when you can have both for $10k?
I buy Michelins in bulk (not really, but we do get huge discounts now). We use as many as some dealers sell in a year. When I have to use Pirellis I die a little bit inside.
There's a disparity between price guides, NADA says $12k and the Haggerty guide says $8,500 (the dealer had it listed at $11,500 but hadn't been able to move it for months), so we split the difference. Cosmetically it's a peach, easily an 8/10, but mechanically it does have a few niggles, such as; a leaky rear seal (barely leaks), weak clutch, and a sticky thermostat, but that's par for any manual over 20 years old. Someone's already put a decent amount of money into it....
Okay, fine, enjoy. I simply know that with 8GB of RAM I can't run Chrome with 15-20 tabs open and Adobe PS at the same time without a good deal of page swapping going on, and even with a SSD the slowdown is noticeable. My point is I refuse to buy such an obviously limited machine off the bat, at the very least it should come with 16GB on-board (it doesn't take any more room on the PCB), if there's no way to expand it. This is clearly a case where the accountants are...
I overpaid a little, book value is $8500 and I paid an even 10k, but you just don't see unmolested Z32 turbos in this condition anymore (this one has 98k miles on it) due to the fact you could tune turbo output with a basic OBD1 scanner, a PC, and a flathead screwdriver. `91 is especially attractive because it's the lightest year, due to not having very much in the way of safety equipment, powered seats, etc..
It's a `91, and it is very clean.
Oh, I forgot, what would I buy for 10Gs? Yep, a `91 TT Z. Soak it in. In fact, I did buy it, just today. I ran down to the lot where it was, bought it, and brought it back in time for the competition. I'm not officially involved, but I want to see how it competes with $7k in upgrades.
Did you know that Wilson Audio engineers will come out to your house and design a custom subwoofer setup? The room (man cave) is 42'x28'x12' and they said they can fully pressurize it.
Right now, but not being able to upgrade beyond that limits the lifespan of the notebook, severely. Who knows what demands new software will have 18 months from now?
