RWD may well be bloody brilliant, but it depends on the overall package as well as the application.

Like I said - I really wanted to love my F80, but it was a badly flawed package in my opinion.

I sold my 2018 M3 about 6 weeks ago. My advice would be to not bother getting into M ownership, at least if you value feedback and communication over numb raw effortless performance (in the dry).

I registered my interest a few weeks ago with local Toyota dealer and had a good couple of email chats with sales guy, saying that I'd need a decent test drive to decide whether I was interested or...

It was a great forum in yesteryear. Faceache et al are mostly responsible for this and other forum's huge drop in activity. And that's a shame because by its very nature all social media are...

Headlight bulb upgrade to hi-luminosity LED H4

As we all know from experience, the Evo 5 and 6 headlights are really very poor. At least, compared to contemporary cars, they really are very dull by comparison.
I don't know whether this is...

LANCER badge

I also don't think I updated about the LANCER badge that I broke quite a while back.

Both the L and the R were snapped off of the ends, courtesy of me being a ham-fisted moron drying the car with...

Bonnet Heat Mat Rescue/Refurb

I haven't updated on what I did with the under bonnet heat shield yet, so here's how I rescued the floppy frayed and layer-separated fibreglass matting.

Originally, I simply use some wide...

Oil change day yesterday.

I love seeing fresh golden oil on the dipstick afterwards.

More comparisons

While we had the 993, we also had the 986 Boxster S alongside it. It was the perfect counterfoil to judge their respective handling traits, because one was so well sorted and the other made you work...

993 Prices, LOL

Well, yeah...

In 2004 I sold my Carrera S into the trade for £28k. It had 72k miles on it at the time.
I saw MY OLD CAR for sale last year.

For £75k

Damn.

One more thing to add - and that is heel & toe downshifting. This was a very important skill in keeping the 993 balanced into the corners.

Like I said - it was a demanding chassis, but one which...

All the above is a pretty long-winded explanation of how an old 911 is driven best around a bend.
It deserves to be pretty long-winded, though, because it does take a bit of deliberate analysis to...

I probably ought to say what cars I'd owned and driven prior to the 993, for context.

I mentioned the FTO in a previous post. About 6 or so months after getting the Boxster S, I swapped the FTO...

993 Carrera S

The 993 is an old car. I don't mean old as in the year it was made - early to late 90s, my old one being a 1998 car - but the 993 platform was a version of the same chassis of 20 years previous,...
