I have been eyeing one of these for a while now, but proved hard to find with a clutch..Finally found one! All wheel drive, good old fashion manual transmission, targa top and new twin turbo motor for a lot more mid-range torque :clap:

drymounting beautiful car. I'm obsessed with the new Targas. Congrats.

Here's my wife's new ride. Picked it up last Saturday. It was supposed to have the black diamond cut wheels on it, so we have to go get them put on later this week.

Was it a M5 or an M4? I meant to ask that same thing.

It was an M4......I wasn't a fan of the artificial exhaust note on the M4 and I also wanted a manual....M4 definitely has a bit more power, but the smile factor that the Targa produces while driving wins!

Rockbridge, I don’t know how to drive manual, but I feel like you should teach me in that car. What’s the worst that happens??

Doubt I would put that thing on, but it is an awesome vehicle! Was this the one you were talking about where the dude selling it had disappeared?

Same type of truck, but got this from another guy.
I do a lot of single day trips up the bush, so this awning will make cooking etc a lot easier

Good stuff.
I see myself installing it when going camping and then taking it off after, depending on how painful it is to install it.
I do a lot of day trips to the bush as well. I don't cook there though, but take some food with me and I am usually far away from the vehicle during the day. I drive a 4Runner for that purpose, but definitely would not mind getting a Land Cruiser like that. I would probably feel bad driving where I go though since it would end being all scratched up in no time :lol:
Also our bush is mostly walk in. Can't find any decent photos at the moment, but here are some examples.
