I knew this was coming

I've been a huge speed yellow fan since I was a little boy and for me no other 911 looks like a yellow aerokit 997. Hence I wanted make my dreams come true and wrapped my C2s.

Wheel are next (BBS)

what do you all think ?

Exclamation

Finally fitted the BBS CH-R's in Matt Titanium. Very happy with the new look.

Great wheel choice. The car looks fantastic with the rear bumper change, the wrap, the wheels - well done!

What widths and offsets did you end up going with?

Looks perfect, now you just need to get that little dent out of the drivers side rocker panel and youre all set

Car looks fantastic. Very well executed mods. Any chance you have the part number for the rear 911 logo in black?

Agreed. Didn't notice it when the car was black. Sticks out like a sore thumb with the beautiful yellow wrap though. Well done overall.

I noticed after the wrap too. I don't know if I can vacuum it without lifting the wrap. Will check.

That is my old chrome 911 logo actually, they sprayed black plastidip on it.

I've finally arrived at a point where I can realistically afford a Porsche. After looking around for what seems like weeks, I have decided the 2005 997 C2S Launch Edition is the one for me. I have located a low mileage one (barely over 20,000) and appears to be nearly perfect. Talking to the current owner has been positive - except he knows what he has. Asking price is in low $40's which doesn't seem unreasonable if it is as good as it appears in photos. Hoping to arrange a PPI within next day and or two get down to see it within a week or so.

The OP's car and the thoughts expressed here have confirmed my opinion this spec is a great all around 911. I hope the depreciation has just about leveled out even though I plan to keep it for a long time.

Congrats on the new car. Manual and LSD make for a totally different driving experience. You'll love it.

Don't worry about the depreciation, its not about dollars and cents but smiles for miles

Low 40’s for a launch edition manual C2S with 20k miles is a good deal. Get your PPI and get that car in your garage!

Have you checked Clubbers Instagram? It will inspire you and show you just how beautiful of a car you are buying. He sold his GTS to get into it!

Heading down to look at it next week. The owner didn't want me to come this weekend because it is raining - car has not been rained upon since 2012 at least!!!! The owner and I have established such a positive rapport he is holding off other offers until I can come see it. He will definitely get full asking price from whomever buys it because he knows what he has, but I appreciate him working with an out of town buyer.

The only negative thing I can identify in the photos is a climate control "roller' controls on either side look a bit rough. But that is a $800 part that can be dealt with fairly easily.

So hopefully by the end of the week I will be the third owner of what may be one of the most pristine 997 Launch Editions in the country. Fingers crossed.

That's not $800. You don't replace the whole HVAC controller because of the toggles, you just replace the toggles. $150 exchange from MA Carbon.
