    Soumatrix with Helix sub/DSP

    I've searched for this, and it seems to be mentioned more of a either/or type of thing. Has anyone added the Helix sub/DSP combo and upgraded to the Soumatrix speakers? I'm really pleased with my Helix for the money, but I really wished the speakers were a little more full and crisp. I don't...

    '15 Cayman S or '18 RS3

    Oh damn, I didn't realize the pricing was that much different there. I didn't realize the USD was that much higher than the CDN. My bad. Yah, that's a big chunk. I'm a Porsche fanboy, but I agree with WhiteGTI for the S 981.

    '15 Cayman S or '18 RS3

    I'm just throwing out ideas here, not trying to sway one way or another: I don't know what your dealers offer there, but a pretty good chunk can be taken off of MSRP on new Porsches (excluding special and GT cars). We've even custom ordered at 7% off. Having driven both extensively and been on...

    '15 Cayman S or '18 RS3

    The 718's are awesome. I would recommend a base Cayman 718 over a '15 or so Cayman S. Test drive them and you'll see what I mean... unless you have to have NA in the Porsche.

    '15 Cayman S or '18 RS3

    A very good point. Unless you're in a very comfortable financial position, I would not even look at modifying the Cayman. That would definitely steer towards the RS3 as well.

    '15 Cayman S or '18 RS3

    The Cayman's PDK is about as good as a gearbox can come. I'm sure the RS3 will have a good transmission (probably Audi's version of dual clutch), but I can attest to how the the Porsche's dual clutch is both on and off the track. If you're into the whole launch control thing, the Porsches also...

    ECU tune low end pull

    I know that tunes and piggybacks are discussed a whole lot, and I've done a bunch of dyno chart studying. I also know dyno charts are pretty worthless sub-2k RPM. I've tuned several cars in the past including Volvo S40, C30, Audi S4 (supercharged), Focus ST, Fiat 500L. What I'm looking for is...

    Helix programming tool; any interest?

    I had ordered one of these a while back, and I was just emailed that it was shipping out to me. Hopefully it shows up and is correct. I don't want to step on anyone's toes here, as I'm super new to the forum. But I was kicking around renting the dongle out for a small fee to recover some of my...

    Your previous rides......Share it !!

    First off, sorry for the picture sizes. My wife and I love cars, and spend a lot of our time driving, buying, trading, etc. Here's a few of our past and present rides. Traded the silver for the red: Still have this one (my wife's actually):

    2017 911 Carrera GTS Announced

    It's amazing how these have jumped in performance. I had a 991 base and loved it. At the 350 HP, it was amazingly fast. I know everyone goes back and forth with the whole mid v rear engine thing, but I love the way the newer 911's handle. We've been fortunate to drive a lot of these and I'm...
