Clubber - I really liked your GTS with the Sport Classic theme. I completed my Sport Classic tribute car earlier this year on a 06 997.1. Since the duck has a 3rd brake light, I deleted the factory 3rd brake light over the holiday with the trim piece from a 997 turbo that goes just below the rear window. Looks better in my option and mirrors the original Sport Classic. I went with subtle metallic stripes. They are a nice accent and don’t scream Mustang or Camaro.

Nice work. As time goes by, the aero wing grows on me more and more...

Clubber, nice intro and car. The Launch Edition cars are sleepers and some dealers don't even realize what they have when selling. A lot of bang for your buck with those cars. Your mods look great.

You mentioned you have LSD in yours. Was LSD an option or standard on the Carrera S? I have a nicely optioned 05 S with PCCBs, PSM, PSE, Sport Chrono, sport shifter, and a bunch of other options, but the spec sheet doesn't list LSD anywhere. Just curious.

Bruce, looks like there must be another set of yellow markers somewhere for your market cornering inititative on the OEM side markers.

Thanks. I believe LSD comes standard with manual cars or at least on Sport Chassis car as mine is.
How's the short shift ? I'm considering that mod.

I bought the bumper with a little crack from ebay for around K, shipped. Painted and fitted around K. Exhaust work was around but please keep in mind labor cost could vary from Turkey to US.
