IMO, it's the perfect RS! Exactly how I would build it. Congratulations! She's stunning!

Pretty sure that is the factory Clubsport.
Kobalt you did it right really looks great and the red door straps look fantastic with the belts really thought that one through.....nice job. If I didn't go stealth I would have done this! Jealous we can't get the clubsport very nice

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.

Agreed on reversing with the door open. I guess we can thank lawyers for that decision. At least give us the option to do it by clicking okay in the on screen display if we want to. At least that way we acknowledge our stupidity.

I also don't mind not having the creep on the car. Compare this to the way a McLaren 650S creeps and I will take the GT3 RS any day. The McLaren doesn't inch forward it leaps forward when your foot isn't firm on the brake. I find this to be annoying because you have to keep a lot of pressure on the brake or put the car in neutral. The GT3 RS not having any creep makes it easy while driving around town. You don't have to worry about bumping into the back of the car in front of you at a relight because you got a little lite on the brake pedal at a stop light.

I liked the LEDs especially on the autobahn. I felt they were awesome at speed on bright. They really lit up the road to where I felt comfortable cruising at 140-150. They are definitely better than the standard LTW headlights on my 997 RS.

I'm wondering which US cage is best? GMG, RSS, or custom? I am tall so I'm concerned about seat travel. Especially with LWB.

It is the club sport cage.

And yes, not getting club sport package in the US totally sucks.

I think that you can override it by pressing the parking button as well - think I did that the other day but not absolutely sure


I drove my BMW 525 with Xenons in the dark yesterday and I can now confirm the the LED's are good

I think the jury is still out on this one. Ka motorsports and BBI have a nice one similar to the Cup car but I think they all have their merits and all of the companies seem to have really done great work. I think I'm just going to go to Europe and steal someones Clubsport!!

Some more notions:

I love the lift
I love the lift
I love the lift

And I wish it could lift 1 cm higher: Could still not get into the garage without help of my wooden friends.

Stupidity: You can not get the 6-point harness thru the upper holes in the seat without disassembling the upper harness. (Remove it from the roll cage).
Extra stupid since it is exactly the same with the 997.1 GT3 Carrera GT seats.
Not sure if it is design feature or design flaw.


My BMW dealer was totally overwhelmed by the car. "It is sooo brutal" "Porsches always looks so nice, this one is not nice it is nasty!" , "What a car!" etcetera (And I have not given him a ride in the car yet.)

Yea with the cornering function I find it very helpful here in the Mountains. Lots of wildlife and when you turn that corner always helps to see that much faster. Does the Clubsport come with harnesses already mounted? If so how are the submounts.......just curious.
