totally off-topic, but what do you average in your M3?

Thirteen Shfifteen and haif.

Also, ONE rear Michelin Pilot Super Sport tire cost more than the used SET OF FOUR WHEELS I recently bought for the Miata.

Fortunately, I typically put less than 10k miles per year on my daily driver.

Maybe. Some fairly good work has already been done on this, however:

There'd obviously be some reverse-engineering needed to figure out the stock dash. But, again, if I were doing this, I'd probably do a parallel install.

End user tuning via ECUtek coming to BRZ... EcuTek Announce FT86 Retail Tuning Software - Scion FR-S Forum | Subaru BRZ Forum | Toyota 86 GT 86 Forum | AS1 Forum - FT86CLUB

Well then, if the same comes to NC legit-ly then that's very interesting indeed.

About time you guys showing some NC love Last time I checked in here the thread would've been set on fire and beaten to death before the 2nd page!

But mine has been top notch for a good while, finally the 2.0l bit the dust this year. Made ~350 tq before the clutches stopped keeping up.

They can be had all day for 10-12k.
