My first thought was that the front bumper looks more like the uncluttered affair on the 997 rather than the one with the appendages from the later cars. At least it doesn't have any golf balls in its cheeks.

Looks wonderful!

Don't suppose there's any point in asking my dealer for one? Question

It's got the same balance as my 3' RS but it's on steroids. TBH the noise and
throttle balance isn't there either, but omg it's so ballistically fast, it makes up
for the deficiencies !. I'm going to do my best to get one...

I would too in your position Smile I was following your thread but I don't recall if you sold your 997 after getting your 991?

The 997 is a 'forever' keeper, and my favourite car....I'm a three pedal man !,
there is no substitute.

I was listening to Matt Farah's Smoking Tire/Tyre podcast who said (while discussing the new 991.2 GT3) the gearbox in the 997 GT3RS was the best ever made. Something about the gear synchros being made out of a different material than other manual boxes Question
How do you find it compared to your GT4?

The GT4 box is a lot easier to use, and the clutch is pretty light. The RS clutch
has always been very firm and with the box you can't take liberties. You have
to be very precise, and there are times when pressing on, the gear change
can be very baulky. But, the gearing on the RS is 100% spot on...the GT4 is
way to high in the lower three gears. Second is faintly stupid at 82mph max..
and it does makes track driving interesting as more often than not you're
reaching for second !. Thumb

RS is still the king !

Looks suitably unhinged Thumb
