Installed the Bernies. Makes a world of difference to the Bose system.

I thrashed Girodisc's on the track on my Exige S for years.. They last a long time even with aggressive pads. Definitely squeaky with track pads but I never tried them with oem. Swapping out rings is nicer than buying new rotors all of the time too. Thank for the feedback

Got these in the post, my wife's Macan keys were identical to the 911's, just got one set to see the quality and how they wear, but will get a second one if they're good.



Updated with an 'after' picture.

This doesn't count as buying my 991 anything but this is the thread for car presents so...if anyone wants a set of Porsche OE racing yellow seat belts to fit an RHD 991 Cab then PM me. They were just too yellow for me, in the end. They're fully packaged and good as new. Thanks.

I bought mine a couple cases of oil and an oil filter today. Getting ready for track season.

I recently purchased Fabspeed headers and sport cats--they shipped today and will get to my installer Monday. Yesterday I ordered a DSC module that will get here Thursday. The weather here is unseasonably warm, melting away the snow (except at the resorts) so it's Porsche weather again! I'll install the DSC and hope to get the exhaust installed next week or the week after.

Will you install the DSC yourself?
If so, it'd be great if you could share pics of how you did it.

It is dead easy, there is a video online on the process... fold the seats down, pull up the carpet from the center, and just yank out the PASM module in the middle. The clips on the two cables are the hardest part but it really isn't too bad, took me 10mins max.

I just made the plunge and bought & installed a full exhaust system from Fabspeed. Headers, Sport Cats and tips! The professionals over at Fabspeed are a true testament to the Porsche brand. The know their ****, to put it in plain English! If anyone wants their .2's to sound like heaven check them out!

Default Video does not do this exhaust justice

I have 2 videos. before and after. Fabspeed also has videos on you tube as well. The videos do not represent the low end growl sound. I sounds way better in person. But here you go anyway......the extra 30 HP is a big bonus, you really feel it around the 4K RPM mark!

Before -

After -
