Total 911 - - Living The Legend – 911 Owner Reports -

I’m in a bit of a dilemma with re­gard to the 911 at the mo­ment. I am com­mut­ing more for work, and it is no longer my pre­ferred car of choice! I am find­ing the ride is nowhere near as com­fort­able as it used to be. I don’t know whether this is due to me chang­ing my rims, as I did have my 17-inch win­ter rims on, but have switched to 18-inch. It could be is­sues with tyre pres­sures, a failed part of my sus­pen­sion or a sim­ple case of the num­ber of bumps on the road has knocked the geo out. What­ever it is, the ride qual­ity has gone down­hill, and it’s not just me be­ing grumpy, as my wife has also found it less com­fort­able than be­fore.

With my in­creased com­mute time the en­thu­si­asm to look at it is not there. So my op­tions are: swap wheels back over, re­fresh my front-top mounts, get it tracked and then see what hap­pens. The other op­tion is re­move the fac­tory Sport sus­pen­sion (MO30), and re­fresh my whole sus­pen­sion for a more com­fort­able op­tion to try and bring it back to a GT.

These are not my only op­tions: I could park it in my lock up, put the cover on and lock the door and come back to it later in the year, or re­place it with a newer model? Since I am even think­ing about these op­tions does show I have prob­a­bly fallen out of love with my car.
