Thanks for the info, Al. I don't really care what Porsche owners think (I am one already lol ,maybe real Speedster owners are different). I just want a fun car that satisfies may boyhood fantasies. As for the emblems, It is a replica and I would never deny that, it would be for my own need to get it as close to the original as possible that I would apply them. For a mechanic I will look around, Pfaff Reserve (who I got the car from and I have a pretty good relationship with, as they service my McLaren and I sold my Ferrari to them), said they would be happy to service the car but they would charge quit a bit. I will look for an independent mechanic in the meantime.
