Thanks


I've just been ignoring it. It would be nice for it to be gone but it doesn't bother me too much, seeing as I know the reason it's there.

Which did you go for? The leather or Alcantara?



I’ve gone for the cheapest black cloth version since my interior is sand beige, I’m planning on just getting then retrimmed in leather to match.

Not had a great deal of time recently but I did improve the fitment of the E88s slightly.

5mm front spacers and 10mm rear has helped slightly. Rears need 305s rather than 295s I think, but they're very difficult to get hold of in anything worth having due to being 18".

I've bought some mesh grill to do a DIY protecting the rads. The Zunsport ones look awful to me and if I can do it myself for £10 and it'll do the job perfectly, I'd rather do that.

I also have an IPD plenum that needs fitting. Any tips/advice?

Indeed Jin, in fact I bought a set of rear camber arms off Olly a few years ago. A deal done in a Tesco car park...

Last week I fitted the IPD plenum I've had lying around for the last year or so. Haven't had the car out since fitting so can't comment on any changes. The job itself wasn't too bad, maybe a couple of hours at most.

E88s have sadly gone, and have been replaced with some BBS CHRs and Cup 2s. Proper setup. Undecided on the wheels as of yet, but I got an offer I couldn't refuse on the E88s in a part swap deal.

I have a 997.2 GT3 bumper and Cup lip on it's way to me, which in time will need to be balanced with a wing of some sort, may look odd otherwise.

Nice!

If you are running low, which it looks like you are then that lip is a goner in no time.

I had to raise the Ohlins up another 10mm with 997.1 gt3 bumper. It doesnt scrap on daily driving, speed bumps etc. But will on some entries and exits i.e petrol station or steep drive way.

Your car looked awesome on the E88's, looking forward to the CHR's, love those wheels.

Olly, the cup lip is the lowest of the gen2 lips , the slight advantage of the gen2 over gen1 is the shape of it as it protrudes out more it tends to often slide up a bump rather than with the gen1 bending under the bumper. might be worth getting the lip clear wrapped to try and prolong its life Thumb

They're only about £110 from OPC anyway, so I'll just replace it if it gets really bad.

CHRs and new Cup 2s are on. Unsure on them at the minute. Can't get the idea of Weissach Gold out of my head though.

The rears probably need spacing 7-10mm.

It'd decent. Couple of bits are lifting slightly, decklid and under the mirrors, but they've agreed to fix them. To be honest, I think I'm taking it off. I miss polishing it to within an inch of it's life and the paint looking like glass. You just can't get that with a wrap, no matter how good or how much you pay.

GT3 bumper and Cup Lip test fitted.

Now for paint and to take the wrap off.

Needs skirts to balance it out a little now though, I'm tempted to modify some 991 widebody skirts, but can't seem to find any. Not a fan of the 997 widebody skirts.
