Or at least save it long enough for me to get it after my 997 dies.

On a related note - I wish Ted's E39 M5 worked out for me. This fall is probably the time I will do something to replace the E38...

But back to the 911. As my car has 148k on it, I am now starting to think about how long I keep it and what I will do for a replacement. But... I think I have some time... The car runs great and does everything I ask of it.

I think the car you have is a keeper... But I am not biased at all. LOL

Reminds me of how a friend of mine managed to convince his wife that he needed to get a 911 in the first place. She got so sick of hearing about it that she was like "just buy the damn car because I dont want to hear about it anymore!"

This was about 5 years ago. He ended up buying a manual CPO 991.1 for I think around 60k (imagine that now!), and keeping it for a few years. He never really bonded with it, and ended up going back to a Miata. Now, he's over cars entirely and just into biking. Kinda crazy since this guy was more obsessed with cars than any of us!
