Back in the car and Pole Position impressions
If you want to appreciate a 911, just drive a Ford Explorer for 3 months and then switch over. Words can't describe the difference especially in snow with blizzaks on the 911.
The seats (Recaro Pole Positions) feel excellent, very snug in the car. Definitely a big upgrade from the stock seats (despite losing my seat heaters and the power adjustment). A problem with the seats is that my winter coat has velcro on the sleeve endings and it's always grabbing the fabric on the seats. A small annoyance but there it is.
My battery went flat just as I finished putting on my snow tires (Bridgestone Blizzak LM22s). A quick trip to Walmart and I bought a 60 amp battery charger/tester/starter. 70 bucks. 2 minutes after I got home, hooked it up and the car started fine. The charger said the battery was at 10%. After a 30 minute steady drive, I tested it again and 66%. So, it's fine now.
Anyway, I'm just happy to be able to drive the car again.
