D1, its good to see I'm not the only one here over 60 that still has the urge to drive a spirited and beautiful machine! I purchased my first Porsche this past April and only question myself as to why I waited so long to do it. My previous sports car was the Black Pearl Special Edition '78 Datsun 280Z, she was my DD for 12 years, but that was many years and kids ago. Enjoy yourself and I see you're in Houston so if your ready to get out and drive there is a Lone Star Region PCA group ride from Houston to College Station on Saturday the 29th of December to honor our 41st President and visit the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library. All will meet at the Starbucks at 25615 NW Frwy. (290) at 10:00 AM. Hope to see you there!

As I understand it Sport PASM lowers the car an additional 10mm in addition to the 10mm on regular PASM, slightly heavier springs and Limited Slip Differential.

I assume that is the P17 in the build sheet above?

Congrats! Beautiful ride and great find! It was interesting hearing about you coming back from the 991 land. A lot of us get that wild hair every once in a while and consider moving on to something else. Yet, you also confirmed my reasons for staying with my 997. It's just a great car and after almost 9 years with mine, It still gets me all excited when ever I drive it.

Would you ever consider black stone guards to go with the black wheels? I like 'em , some don't... Different strokes for different folks. Congrats again!
