Default So got this a few months back... what do you think

Hi Everyone, I am new to this board, and only got my 06 997 S a few months back. It has a tan interior, 29k miles, sport chrono, factory aero kit, manual of course. I had the same year about 10 years ago, but in a non S.

I honestly don't drive it every day, and I wanted to go a bit different so yes I did that to the wheels. I actually love them. Bronze Metallic, really hard to figure out wheel colors by the way.

But maybe not for everyone. Should take a better picture that does not have a portable toilet in the background.

Thanks for the comments! They used a satin finish. Basically between matte and gloss.

Besides that nothing special but they did and incredible job painting them

Looks, nice, I like it a lot.

And I agree, you went the opposite direction. Some people post pics of their 911 in front of their house and watch collection, but not you. Much respect, cheers!

Looks great. I love it. Though I’ve never been a big fan of the LED fogs on the 997.1.

And probably not in the rain. I have nit washed it the first time so need to get on that. The interior is immaculate.

It also has a partial muffler bypass, one if those hacks. Sounds ssswweettt...

honestly I love these cars

1) it sounds cool
2) it looks cool
3) it is cool to drive

there are definitely faster cars, but this has style...

Dude, that Portable toilet in the photo adds at least 50 hp!

Welcome back and great choice with the 3.8 and some cool mods. Nothing wrong with making it unique and your own with the wheel color. If it makes you smile and look back every time you walk away, then you did something right

Love the wheel color. I was wondering what I could do to add some sparkle to my car , with an unusual wheel color. Atlas Grey is tough to work with though.

I too think the bronze blends well with the black car. Congratulations, hope you get tonnes of enjoyment out of the car

Love it. Post some pics of the interior. Black and Tan is one of my favorite combos for both cars and beer.
