I made a parts run on my DR on Friday and ended up taking the long way there and back. :D

Can't help you on the Voyager, but I've been pretty pleased with my Vapor, except for the ambient air temperature sensor, which is apparently included for entertainment purposes only.

That'll be fun. I've got an '87 944S and absolutely love the chassis, but I wouldn't miss the limp-wristed, leaky engine all that much. Got a build thread somewhere?

Nice! That's a heck of a deal for a low mileage '99 SE. That's not all that much more than I have into my '96, and the '99 starts out with the better suspension, too.
