Can't speak for spcmafia, but I only visited the dealer twice and both times were fairly hassle free. I doubt SoA would have sent a Master Tech to my house with a Techstream to reset the fuel gauge....

Well, it is slightly better in the 987 (if only be a few MPH).

The Performance is certainly lacking in value, but it doesn't add anything super substantial (well, maybe the LSD) that would change the impressions vs. the base for $40,000.
