We definitely are twinning for sure...good thing youíre in SD! The headlight rings are external...stick on TechArt pieces. As far as the suspension, I believe itís stock with the adjustable ďsport modeĒ dampeners. I think the original owner had H&R springs installed, but changed them back to stock. I have the H&Rís in a box that had ďstock 997 springsĒ written on it, but the springs have H&R on them.

Bonus for you on the Work wheels!

Haha. Which island are you at? I'm not surprised that the previous owner swapped out the H&R. I bet it was more difficult and harsh to drive around especially with the kit. In PASM mode, it has a bit more bounce but I'm used to the stiffer suspension feel from my Supra. Your car looks awesome and I really dig those TA headlight rings.

Mine has Sea Blue full leather. I actually love it.

Iím on Oahu. Iím pretty sure that the ride was a little more harsh with the H&R springs...in PASM on spor itís stiff enough and the car is low enough for me (Iíve already scraped the lip a few times). Thanks Arnold...yours is quite awesome as well!

Are you going to the March 18th PCA SDR event? I would love to see your car in person.

Nice! I'm going to Maui in July for my brother-in-law's wedding. This will be my first time visiting the islands so any tips for my wife and I to check out?
