I mean, not to blame you, but you bought a car on its second engine, that tells me the car was abused or mistreated in some way. Probably not an example to judge the rest of the read by.

I would say yes, not so much that I think the S is that much better than everything, it's that it's that much better than everything for the price. I can't see spending 2-3-4X as much as my S is...

911R is cool but does essentially nothing that the half-price GT3 Touring can't do. It's just not worth the premium.
