Default What did you do to your 997 today?

Some of the other forums I watch do this.

Rules: simple, tell us what you did to your ride today. Modifications, fixed something, or just took a drive, post it up.

Pics are always welcome.

Walked by it twice in the garage. Not very exciting. Tomorrow, I am changing it to track mode (track wheels with R compounds, track pads, brake bleed) for two upcoming track weekends. Last 2 of the year!

Three, here. I have a track day scheduled Monday, so I charged the battery and emptied the memory chip of my Contour HD video camera. That's my track prep.

Picked it up from the Porsche dealer for the third repair in one month...
Oxygen sensors
HPFP
Lugging during acceleration...(couldn't find anything this time)(2009 911S coupe)
Had the check book in my pocket in case I needed to buy a new coupe.
I swear I thought the new 991's were out already.... I guess I'm a year off....I thought the 991 was coming out in 2012??????

They game me a Panamera 4 as a loaner.... 6 cylinder and quite nice... I suspect that if I can get this 911 running perfectly then I may pick up a black Panamera for my wife... I would help her drive it of course.
