enjoyed my time here but, somewhat unexpectedly, heading back to Porsche country.
When they came out, I tried hard to buy a GT4 with zero success with no availability and/or $15-$20k ADM’s, but stumbled into a pristine 4000 mile 2016 example, thus a trade.
Gotta remember where I stored the gold chains and a couple old Eurotrash outfits.:like:

Watch out for cracked shock towers. It’s a problem with them.
^This.
Does this not give you pause for getting into a GT4?
I’m hearing Porsche is not warranting this default??
At least Ford is replacing Voodoos with oil consumption.

Yeah, it seems that most of that stems from 2 primary causes, hitting something fairly substantial and mostly related to aggressive spring replacement, particularly sets with helper springs.

^Good to hear.
So if your car has stock suspension, this won’t be a potential issue?
Looking forward to hearing driving impressions.
Congrats!
