So, uhm, is this thing finished? Delivery? It's been crickets, and enquiring minds want to know!

Expecting to see a dozen videos and several dozen photos!

Please.

Pretty, please.

This thread is very skimpy in pictures of the Miami Blue that's available on the new 991.2 GT3. Anyone have decently representative pictures they could post please? In particular I'd love to see it...

Yes!

"I Live my Life...
One Nürburgring
Lap at a Time"

Love it!

Just booked my annual trip for August, so I'll have to get it printed up beforehand.

I don't really care about the hight adjust. Lower is better!

If the GT2 seats fit in the 2018 car, I'm pretty sure I'd do the switch. If not, I wonder if I couldn't order the Euro folding seats...

I agree. I just hanker for an OEM solution. I had a German 996.2 Club Sport with full cage, dual harnesses, extinguisher, external ignition kill, etc. I guess I'm longing to replicate that car. :)

Yes, the track is a bit faster, but it also depends on how you drive it. Being old school I don't use all the curbs that have been installed the last 5 years or so. (Which also saves the car.) If...

Back in the day when I was racing in the VLN, I did an 8:05 BTG tourist drive in my 996.2 GT3 CS. We had to raise the suspension because it would...

That's really annoying. And why show it on the USA website if you can't get it. And they also show the Club Sport option with half cage, harness and extinguisher just to taunt us some more.

Now...

991.2 GT3 Bucket Seats - do they fold?

I have a 997.1 GT3 with the GT2 bucket seats. They have a strap and fold forward which is awesome for stuffing things behind the seats.

It's my understanding that the bucket seats (918 style) in...

For what it's worth, I used to routinely bottom out my 996.2 GT3 Club Sport in the compression at the bottom of Fuchsröhre at the Nürburgring. We actually had to raise the suspension to counter...

Echo that. I had a 2003 model 996.2 GT3 Club Sport from Germany with a full factory roll cage. While it was covered in high density foam, it really wasn't safe to drive the car without a helmet. I...

I also got a SW Bypass for my 997 GT3. It's transforms the sound of the car.

How come when I read this thread there is a gap in posts from Jun 23 to Aug 03? Were there really no posts, or is my computer somehow FU?

Anyway, for what it's worth, I was in Europe during month...

You can buy it online or some installers may stock it. My local installer stocks it, and agreed a price between list and online price. If you are handy, I think it can be a DIY. Getting ignition...

It seems to me that for those folks that have yet to take delivery of their cars (and thus have not paid for the car) to be receving both $2k/mo. plus a 1 year warranty extension is pretty fair. If...

I've been reading with interest the debate regarding future value of 2014 vs. 2015 cars. The main point seems to be whether a 2014 car with extended warrantee and perhaps a bit of stigma will be...

By my calculation this thread is averaging a little over 60 posts daily since first post about 30 days ago. That means we should easily hit 2000 by end of Friday. :corn:
