Thank you sir! She's definitely worth the wait.

I heard that! There are so many nice canyons and tracks here. I want to wrap the front, flush the brake fluid and replace the front tires before doing some spirited drives.

I was surprised on how the low mileage was too. The previous owner took very good care of her but now it's time to finally enjoy her and drive.

Thank you sir! I love white cars. There's something about white cars that makes them pure and elegant.

Glad the PPI turned out well. Let us know if your planning any trips up the coast. Send me those Napa routes you mentioned.
Thank you for all of your helpful advice. I'll be in Carmel for Pebble Beach and at Laguna for Rennsport Reunion. It would be good to put a name to a face.

I forgot to share the Lake Berryessa route. I hope this works. Wait until you get to Hwy 29, it's a rollercoaster!

That car is so nice it needs a quality wheel on it. I have some polished, forged Champion RS171s for sale in the marketplace if you find a buyer for the current ones. Widths are 8.5 and 11.5 with perfect offsets for the NB cars.

Thank you sir! Do you remember my thread about the white 997.2 at Porsche Plano. It all worked out in the end. Nice wheels. I want to go with BBS's but I might wait it out and keep these ones for now.

Beautiful!!! I bought similar car 8 years ago. Love white cars with black wheels. .
Mine is still going strong. Every time I start her up I get a huge grin on my face.
Lots of good luck and enjoy.

I'm still grinning and I've only driven the car twice since I've bought her home last weekend. I'm still driving like a grandma until I get the front wrapped but can't wait to take her out through the canyons and race track.

Thank you gentlemen. The white and black definitely compliment each other nicely.

Cobalt blue! Even though I'm extremely happy with my purchase, Cobalt or Aqua blue were my original choices but very hard to find with black or stone interior. I'll be at the PCA SDR events moving forward so I'm sure we'll meet. Keith (Keef) was ok with me tagging along in my Supra a few times but with all due respect, I didn't attend any more after that.

Look who made a guest appearance as a caboose on the cover of the May 2017 Windblown Witness article.

Thank you sir! Patience is definitely a virtue and I'm so glad it worked out. As many have said, "your first 911 should be a special one"

Great find and congratulations! Reminds me of how I felt when I got my 06 C4S. Almost exactly as yours (white with black aftermarket TechArt wheels and a few other goodies), but mine had 15787 miles on it when I purchased it.

With all of the horror stories and disappointments I've read here, it's such a liberating feeling to have gone through such a great PPI and seamless purchase.

Please do share a picture of yours.

I was doing some cleaning up in the garage and looking at the wheels up close.

I was going to order the Porsche valve stem caps like a noob and saw they had a W logo.

As I scanned the face of the wheels, I noticed that they are indeed Work wheels. I searched more and found out they are VS-KF's! I thought they were knock offs and can't rock garbage on a 911. The gift that keeps on giving.

The first pics are when I picked her up almost 2 years ago, then how she sits currently.

Beautiful! We're def twining minus the aero. I like the color matched headlight rings. Are they painted or external? What suspension are you on?
