210k miles on your car? :) how long have you had it?
I have had it for around 10,000 miles but the guys that use to own it is one of my best friends so i have known and see the car since new. The silver car and my black one were purchased around the same time.

What major repairs have had to be done? On 3rd timing belt yet? Anything need to be changed as of now?
Just replaced the engine about 10,000 miles ago. The stock engine lasted 200,000 miles and 180,000 of that it was over 350whp.

Correct 24 is the sweet spot for that car so down one turn on the gate we go lol. wish the motor was head studded and slightly built i would just leave the boost where it is lol.

Everyone, that was a hint hint of his black car! :)

Yeah, 24 is a little worrysome for me, 22 is my safe threshold; course you knew that for 180k miles (previous owner) that it handled 24 and driven hard haha, so I can understand why you see 24 as a good number. I can only imagine how his G8 is now! Haven't seen him in a while.
