Default 991.2 GT3 Lightweight Glass from RS/T?

Hi all,

Has anyone fitted the lightweight glass from the .2 RS to a .2 GT3?

Also, is the glass the same as that fitted to the Carrera T?

Just thinking it might enhance the noise somewhat?

Suncoast sells the glass. Not sure if the price is worth it.

Probably better off spending on Magnesium wheels and ST rotors.

You also lose the rear defroster function. But if you're still interested, might as well add side ones too:

4k to save 8 sprung lbs is silly.

The OP said his primary motivation was to hear the engine better (but I guess a new exhaust is cheaper)

wait, so does this mean the RS doesn't have a rear defroster?

Gotcha. Exhaust and new rear window would help with that.
