But it still begs the question whether the 10k price difference is justified in the upgraded factory parts vs. aftermarket overhaul... either way it's a cool ride.

Terry - I did A LOT of research recently on this model year as I had a line on one via my brother in law with 80K on the clock for $22K (skirt kitted, etc, etc). The potential problems were scary, so say the least.

After doing all that research, I dropped the idea and went with the Z4...
