Enjoy it in good health.
Thanks. Not sure about the story but like it a lot. Think he just had it wrapped as he liked the style and look of Alacantara. Or someone was hiding something. 🤣

Nothing major. Really is well setup. Feels good. Exhaust sounds good. Kw v3 is great for street. Maybe Iíll find some different wheels and tires. And clean up a few things.
Donít love the 996 sport seats. They seems the same as the 993 ones but donít feel like eye sit in them but on them. Actually really like the 964 sport seats/softbacks

I think it's a techart wheel actually. RUF typically aren't that aggressive with their thickness. But it may have been modified beyond whatever was supplied.

It's very similar to my Gemballa (Atiwe) wheel - but thicker..

Why the tach? The view is clear... just preference?

Wow....nice find! Welcome back - I just got here..lol....never knew what I was missing. New cars are completely disconnected and don't feel as alive. Minus the GT cars. I am still smitten with my purchase. It's slow compared to newer cars, but the driving experience is second to none. Plus I get to row the gears and hear the howl of the flat 6 without going to jail.

How is it compared to your 964? I so want to pick one up as well. Been looking, but can't stomach the latest price increases.

Congrats and welcome back to air cool! I see the car has Beverly Hills plate, not sure if you are around LA area? I’m near Pasadena, maybe I’ll see you around!
