Default What did you do to your 996TT today?

So I've been reading this thread on the 997 section,where folks are describing what they did to their 997's on a particular day. From just admiring the car in their garage after washing it to upgrades,mods,regular maintenance or an interesting/funny episode that happened with them and their cars.
I wanted to contribute too,only the problem is I don't own a 997,I own a 996TT.
So I was wondering,why not have something like that here?
Pics welcome.

I'll start first:
I had a set of 4 Michelin PS 2's installed at the dealer and a much needed wheel alignment. All to the cost of 2K!
Ouch!

new clutch slave/ accumulator and pss9's from my shop done 2 days ago, 4k
wash and wax by me, cost was time and some elbow grease.
driving my favorite twisty road, blowing out the winter doldrums and getting it dirty again, priceless.

Installed new front rotors and pads - bedded them in on Sunday.

Brought to indy shop to find and repair a small power steering leak on Monday (car is still there!) <totally unrelated to brake job>

I've been a busy beaver,

- I exchanged my front PCCB rotors and pads for steel GT3 components.
- I added metal grills to the intakes of the front bumper as protection for the radiators

I rolled over to 33,333 miles just as I got home last night. 4k miles since early December.
Topped of the fuel tank and cleaned the massive bug guts off the front window. They sure do make a mess at high speed!

Washed the car past Sat, used a glass cleaner yesterday called Invisible Glass by Stoner. Used it for the first time, wow what a nice job with no streaking.! Trivial I know but hey you asked! LOL!

Did the interior(Metropol blue) nice and shiny using Meguiar leather cleaner and conditioner. I've used it first time,pretty cool stuff. Anyone else used it?
Dealer warned me not to use Armorall.

Drove to a Botanical Garden and was looking to the farthest most isolated parking spot available when the Parking Lot Security van showed up and asked me to park close to the entrance on the grass,next to a Corvette and telling me I can leave 10 feet of space between them!
Talk about privileges of having a Porsche.
Made me very happy!

I loaded driver side door box with 40 moods cigars for upcoming road trip to Germany. Difficult to find decent cigars in Deutchland.
