Default What did you buy your 991 today thread

A little surprised there is not one of these... I'm 30 days into ownership and finally made some decisions on Mods.

Today:

Sport front lip Spoiler
Tech Art Rear diffuser
3rd radiator ket from Rennline (was 50 bucks less than Suncoast and free shipping)
3Piece bumper mesh grill in Black
LED Clear Markers
IPE F1 exhaust
scheduled for full front plus full quarter panel Exel clear

Considering the DC2 suspension hockus pockus

A couple kWh and a few therms. I'm still in winter storage. Will be -3 tomorrow. Hopefully driving by mid March.

Today I bought a black, thin 991 GTS engine cover grill for my 991 GTS, which came with the standard 991S grill because I ordered mine with ducktail and Porsche used to only supply that with standard grill, although now they have shipped a GTS Rennsport Reunion Edition with duck and black grill, as detailed elsewhere.

Wish mine had come that way -- on the other hand, it's also nice to get something new after a year, so you keep the thrill alive. Helps keep the "gotta have a new and different car" thought from crossing my mind.

Next up: refinishing black GTS wheels to a lighter shade, and 380mm rotors, and rebadging to

P O R S C H E
..911 GTS

Interesting, is this the rotor upgrade option available via Racing Brake?

Clear LED corners. They look so much better than the standard yellow ones.

I filled mine with 97 Octane today, as I always do. Does this mean the fuel we are using in the UK is a higher grade to US or is it measured differently.
