Nope, Carrera S is "narrow body". Pristine 993 costs MORE than a 996...

I don't plan on getting NAV, iDrive, comfort access...really annoying to me. NAV = super overpriced for $2500? My $300 Garmin does a better job. I had BMW's NAV in my Z4 and it was crap.

Have my wife pick the color? What are you crazy? Where's your manhood?

You know, I LOVE the new car smell... Which is why I never bought a used car before (except my first college car). BUT, Griot's sells the new car smell... and it's pretty darn good.
