Why Theia at a price point of $1000+ is not cost effective.

If I was to even think about pony cars I would go Dodge... It's like we're opposites clearly when it comes to cars Jon...

I like to tinker... It's what I do... An engine isn't going to stay stock if it's a fun car for me... I've built old Nissan's and Mazda's... I've done my fair share with camaro's in my high school years... No thanks... If I'm putting the time into it I want something lower to the ground. If I bought I a 991 I would still want to tinker...

Thing is if you mod, things are going to break... And that's no different with x brand over y brand...

Same goes with my computers and electronics...

I think you are reading too much into what I was saying - I was speaking very narrowly for on-track performance and reliability, not what I would prefer to own or tinker with.

Interesting side discussion, however, more on topic...
Take my money and ship Theia Serial # 0000001 directly to my home address for complete evaluation. ;)
I will post here the cost effective value according to me.
No one will ever need to know more than that.:p

Want to know what's even more cost effective? Going the speed limit! Boom, now you never have to worry about a speeding ticket ever again.

The rest of us who drive quickly will spend our money the way we feel the need to in order to have the best protection for us.
Where can a buy this “going the speed limit” and how much ?

If you allow a cop to sneak up on you and pace you at 100+ then you earned your ticket. Anyone gaining on you from behind at that speed is suspect. If you don't see them your situational awareness is lacking. This is one of the advantages of running 105 vs 85. You'll have very few vehicles approaching from behind at 105 and every one of them must be identified even if it means slowing for a bit. This way you can avoid the pace and possibly pick up a rabbit.

This is very effective tactic

one of my friends actually uses this

he drives at 200kmh on the highway. Other ppl have called him in and a cop has pulled him over up to the road but he either gets no ticket or beats the tickets he gets

I will say there is one tactic that a person can get nailed

Sure it is cost effective - for me. I'll get enjoyment out of it. Way less likely to get a ticket. Way less vehicle false alerts. Less complaining from the 'boss' over in the passenger seat. If its not you 'cup of tea' don't buy it. Take care Spin

We were discussing cars in general at a dealer i do some work for. Woman was in with a bad ass wrangler. I've always liked gm cars and jeeps. For cars, all i liked were pontiacs and cadillacs, vettes about it for a bowtie, would like a c5 at some point in my life. Remember when that came out back in the day. If I was to get an suv truck, be a tahoe, escalade, or silverado.

But yeah, in discussion I said that I've owned 3 pontiacs, on the 2nd cadillac, and one jeep. Always liked pontiac and wish they didn't quit the line- gto's firebirds, grand prix's, awesome cars. One of the guys says to me, you know what pontiac stands for? I'm from a small town, heard it a couple times back in the day. Girl with the jeep asked what it was, with work and people around, someone said to just google it later if she really wanted to know.
