History Bought the car in May 2010, bought it from a retired engineer who only drove it about 2000 miles in the 2.5 years he owned it. The carfax looked good, it drove well, was nice and quiet, had some decent mods so I decided to plunge into the TT/AWD world.

Since owning it I have put a LOT of street miles on it, drove to NG and back four times (5k+ round trip), performed at mostly all the NG events even. I get 24-26 mpg @ 80 mph, not bad!

My main goal is to build a well performing 3/S that doesnt have a mod list longer than I can remember. Upgrading suspension and brakes and becoming a better driver are more important to me than crazy engine mods. I beat much more heavily modded cars at the NG events due to simply having experience and a decent setup.

I have been to a dragstrip and the best run has been a 12.98@ 106 mph

I autocross it 8-10 times a year, it does well but not exemplary, its a fast pig, but still a pig.

I have been to about a dozen lapping days at my local tracks. Look up Pacific Raceways and The Ridge Motorsports park. I have a bunch of videos of me at the Ridge in my 3000, check them out! Search for 93rt's channel in youtube.

Havent had any real problems with the car in the 75k miles since I have owned it.

I won best overall at NG15.

Dyno'd 262 whp on Von's heartbreaker, he said add 14% for a comparable dynojet number (i was a tiny bit faster than another 9b car in 3 roll races in a row and he dynod 311). This was on the 9b's, the 13t's at the same boost have probably 20-60 more HP. I roll raced a 71 duster and smeared him pretty bad and he traps 108.
