Why are Porsche's the answer you ask? Because they pay you to mod them!

I bought an eBay Dino wheel and a CL Dino adapter for less than $50 total with shipping.

I just sold the original leather wheel on eBay for $212.50!!! Plus shipping!

If you think that's good, wait until I sell the factory Sport Seats that are being replaced by the $250 specials + $50 mounts from turboswede...

Working down? I only paid $2000 for the car to begin with!

I just totaled up my receipts, and even with buying new R-S3's I'm under the challenge budget (and rules)! Maybe I oughtta ship the stupid thing to Florida (yeah right, it would lose everything except maybe top half of the field in AX).
