Guess we will see how the German taxi's go. If they are anything like ours they should have hit 300,000kms some time in 2003.

Get a test drive in both, you may like the experience of a GT better than a F6 (even knowing they are slightly faster stock). I did.

If you're buying new, the BOSS315 has an even better delivery of power.

They (the 290's) apparently go bit better (espeically) down low with a tune, frees up the torque limitation, and removes the throttle lag.
