There isnt many places in WA ( Seattle, Everett, Linwood, Shorline, etc..) that you can really stretch your cars legs. <p>I used to live in Everett off the Boeing fwy. Doug, aint much use having a radar detector there. The sensors on the doors make it crazy just like you said. I just put mine in the golve box and besides... the bloody traffic is everywhere.

Doug,<p>Have you been up Hwy 99 ( Evergreen hwy) through Edmonds yet around 5 pm? I know for which you speak! <p>Nother thing. Will "R" Calipers fit in the standard 850T5 rims? ( I have a 97 855T5 with 16" rims) I would like to get a set if they do. I know that most of the pegs or volans come 17". I can't afford Stoptechs or Porche calipers and rotors yet.

The stock 850s I have seen have four piston calipers in front. They are painted or powder coated grey or metalic grey with the R painted on them. Those are the calipers that I am talking about.<p>Doug you got the all mighty Stoptechs on your car. Ifn I had them I would not even have mentioned the calipers I have. My child support dictates what mods go on my car. That is an option that I may be able to use for me, an inexpensive alternitive.<p>Your car looks grate btw. I am still breathing hard for your dyno slip too!
