    My car lives in a heated garage with a soft floor finish, spoilt car, well was the M3 is in there at the moment, don't drive the 911 anymore not for about a month, I drive the E92 everywhere now, I'm loving the auto box in my old age and the 30 mpg plus 370 bhp.

    It's not the gearbox it's the engine
    I've driven lots of autos and all bar 2 were shit, it's the torque from the engine that makes it good, I've never driven a petrol engine with a good relationship with an auto box and that includes massive V8 AMG Mercs

    Yeah it's just an awesome engine that does it for me, stick that gearbox on a M3 engine and it'd be shit

    Only just seen this @m44lee , the GT3 wheels are hard to come by, expect tatty ones with no tyres to set you back £1600 to £1800, a good set with good tyre around £3000
