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.
