Joel, hello again. I have several updates and one question.RMS was just replaced for a third time. My dealer was very nice about it and said thay just got a new part from Porsche for this. The last one was only waeping and was found during a DE inspection - by the dealer no less.Clutch replaced while tranny was out. Worn most likely by me. I don''t mind the RMS problem since I can get free labor on the clutch when they replace it.Intermediate shaft leaking and new seal put in.Question: Michelin PS tires (225x40x18 and 285x30x18) are on back order and only available to dealers from Tire Rack. This will be my fourth set. Can you recommend any particular Porsche approved tire for dual use street and DE? I''ve got options of Conti SC N2, Bridgestone SO2A N2, or Pirelli Rosso Assy N4. Maybe it doesn''t make any difference since I go through them so fast. I''d love to have a separate set for DE but I''m not close to anyone who could transport them for me. I don''t think I can use a trailer like I''ve seen on older 911''s.Thanks again
