m119cars, I'd done the deal with them and put a deposit down the day before the coffee morning, so they'd likely have shunted it out of the showroom to make space for something still for sale.

I wasn't really looking for a white car, more that I was definitely keen on Club Sport spec, but I actually think the combo - with the black wheels and yellow calipers - is pretty cool. And the interior:



Evodarren, nice car! Do you track yours and what brakes are you running?


Hi, No only done a few charity days around the topgear track for the childrens trust.
Im still running standard pads. Still on original set. 85% left accordung to Porsche.

Best looking GT3 for me the 997.1 mk1 especially in that colour and spec - enjoy Thumb
Cheers! Will do.

There is currently a very short To Do list:
* paint protection
* brake discs
* book track days

Is that an aftermarket NAV in the dash an how's it attached? I was considering getting a removable one that does NAV and bluetooth.

Such phenomenal cars. I've never driven mine without Sport engaged. Apparently it slightly loosens the TC and of course opens the exhaust flaps = ALWAYS PRESS Grin

Enjoy

Lots pretty neat and in obtrusive. Would still leave my PCM relatively unobstructed for trip computer stuff. Might investigate!

Very nice thumbsup

I believe the go-to steel equivalents for you ceramics would still be the Alcons, i'm not aware of anything that's come along recently to steal their crown

Good luck with the car hope you enjoy driving it, they're great fun and really addictive Thumb

Ps it won't be long before that to do list grows Grin

Thanks Roro. Yes, Alcon are just a short drive away from me - I'd not realised - so would be good to support local Midlands industry.

I'm sure the inevitable agenda creep will hit the list!

Since yours is a clubsport you've already got most of what anyone looking to track one of these would have added. I added aftermarket cage, buckets, harnesses which you won't need to do...

If I was doing this all over again though, the first thing I would do is change the wheels for some light weight OZ's or similar. The improvement in handling is very noticeable, the car will feel a lot lighter than with those OEM wheels

(I've just spotted that Bigfra has recently swapped out of his 997 GT3 into a 991 GT3 and selling his old OZ's, worth a shot if you have any spare cash left Thumb )

Very, very, very nice.

A move I'd love to make in the future. thumbsup

Had a ride in a friends GT3 at Donington a few years ago, been smitten ever since. The noise, the braking...... Surprised

Suggest you talk to Matt at Fearnsport and Nick (NXI120) Uber9S on here for the best deal on Alcons and Pagid set up.

Your shopping list starts here Smile

Cheers. After getting used to the 996tt (and thoroughly enjoying it) it's almost like learning to drive all over again. Steering, grip, throttle response, that engine, and the astonishing carbon brakes all add up to a very different driving experience.

Yep, I'd sort of figured that was inevitable. Just need to let the dust settle on the purchase and the other necessary assaults on the wallet (paint protection film and ceramic coating).
