Looks awesome! Can't wait to hear your impressions of it compared to your other white GT3.

Did about 400 Km's today. 200 of them in rain. Car feels solid and very planted - not as nervous as my 2007 GT3. On the other hand my 997 have much more aggresive wheel setup.
I'm amazed how comfortable the car is, thinking about the chassi. Pressed the firmer damping setting and forgot about doing that...

I really like sound the car makes when throttle is "gently-fast" pressed. I guess it is the intake that makes the sound. It is a very low frequency sound, not much revs.

The engine feels totally different from the Mezger engine. Going to be interesting to hit full revs.

Stayed below 5000 rpm

During the weekend it is getting Xpel. So no more driving until next week.

Picked up car after it has gotten Xpel.
Drove about 400 km's. Still under 5000 rpm.

Noted that the dashboard is reflected in the left mirror - weird. (Night driving).

Not sure if the LED's are terrific or just OK.

Difficult to reverse with precision - And not being able to do it with open door is stupid.



Finally home:

What do you mean by dash board reflective in left mirror and reverse with precision?

I see light from the dashboard reflecting
in the left hand outside mirror.
I'll see if I can get a picture of it.
Actually when looking at how the mirror and the dash are located I would suggest that it is impossible to happen. Maybe the light reflects in the steering wheel and then to the outside mirror.


Since there is no creep in the PDK-S it is difficult to move the car inch by inch. For me it is more like foot by foot. But... I have not gotten used to the car yet so I hope this will improve for me.

I haven't noticed any reflections but the hand brake and no creep is just useless and annoying. The car gets a bit smoother or you learn to deal with it or both but yeah, without rear view camera and the car jumping 20-30 cm at the time its a PITA. I use the rear wing to gauge distance but if there is any incline it gets tough to park.

I tried hard suspension at the ring and I think its faster but doesn't feel better. The car is just so comfy on the road with the cool, dark sound at 4-5-6K RPM.

On the Autobahn that is best. When I see my favorite 3-gray-strip sign, that is the only time I use Sport Plus in auto. I call it bat**** crazy mode.. Its even to harsh for the track LOL.
