Default My GT3 :-)

Hi,
just wanted to share a photo of my car.
Coming from the .1 canít say much at the moment as the engine is still not seeing much revs. I try to keep it below 5-6k rpm. It pulls stronger than .1 but it might be well the low outside temperature. -2C -0C.
The interior is extended leather with silver stitches, carbon trims and yellow seat belts. Sport bucket seats.

It all looks perfectly as I wanted. PCM is not as nice as iDrive with BMWs but apple car play does the job well.

The only let down is the steering wheel. Itís nicely thicker and smaller but the bridges at 9 and 3 oíclock is a fcking disaster. You canít wrap your hands nicely at that position which is a shame.

Overall I am totally happy with some options that I was not sure if they would work out:
-black LEDs
-satin aluminum wheels - with pccb they look really nice
-standard extended leather with carbon trim - I was afraid it would turn out too dark.

The reason why the steering wheel is not thicker like your BMW's wheel is that the GT3 steering wheel is designed to be gripped with gloves on.

I installed a racing (Sparco) steering wheel in my last car and it was thinner (and smaller in diameter) just like the wheel in the GT3's.

Thanks for all good words.

I will post interior pictures later on as I am leaving now for 3 weeks and had no time to shoot some nice ones.

The stickers are aftermarket. I paid 500EUR once already for original ones and can't justice to pay that much again. Besides I think there is no OEM available colour that I wanted (matte) and with this colour combination neither. They either come all red or black.

My next step is to put NO tires all 4 corners and check how in fact this car is faster compared to .1 on a track that I know quite well.
