Agreed. I thought that black was the way forward until I saw the anthracite.

Quality looking wagon by the way.

Thanks so much, not seen them outside the parking space yet and I am away for a couple weeks but I’ll take post some pictures of them in the daylight when I get back.

Thanks mate, Weiss Gold is such a nice colour, I do wish I could see it on another car without a fixed wing. Maybe i’ll be bold enough to try it next year Smile

Would love a set as they are by far the best wheels I’ve seen on a Turbo. Cloud 9 If the car is black/black I think Weiss Gold would look great. I was so close to pulling the trigger

Great write up and lovely car Cloud 9

I too had Weiss Gold suggested when I recoloured my BBS CH-Rs. But just didn’t think it’d work with my Atlas Grey colour scheme. I went for GT Silver and love the result. Though the brake dust makes them look anthracite most of the time Embarassed

They look a million dollars mate. Well done.

Are the old ones electric memory sports seats? If so if you're not keeping them could interested as I just can't get on with folding buckets. Feel I sit too high in them.


You can buy brackets to lower the fixed bucket seat so you sit lower. I'm 6'3" and I was worried when I bought them about this. I ordered the brackets from the US (it's in my build thread). They lower you about an inch.

Here is the link to the page on my thread
http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=97438&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=260

Looked through my thread and found the link.

Nice thread by the way. Only just found it.

When I changed the suspension it was the final modification that made me feel like I was driving a different car. It brought all the mods together, and transformed the car to make it feel like it looked if that makes sense.

I'd recommend the Ohlins. Tech9 set up my car so well, and it's amazing to drive.

I'm still tempted to have the 9e package done on my car. But my house purchase and new Boxster means it will have to wait.

Thanks I am tempted by the Ohlins but I really want to retain the PASM if possible. If Bilstien don’t sort themselves out soon I may just do it.

The 9e package is amazing, it also transforms the car. I have just bought three cans of race fuel so looking forward to trying it out with the updated map soon. New house is definitely a priority 😉

I was the same about the PASM button. If Ohlins has made a version I would have bought it. But I never used that button anyway and now I don’t care really that it’s not there.

Try some of the German eBay websites. Google translate is your friend... Floor

I picked up a set about a month ago which had been wrongly advertised as GT3 wheels (They were cheaper because of it!). Seller delivered them direct to Chris@ExelWheels for €60 Thumb

Just make sure the rears are et51, as the narrow body cars still have a 12J wheel but with a suitably different offset.

Floor Grin - they do turn up in the classifieds from time to time. Friend picked a set up off 6speedonline/rennlist for £2500!

Apollo that other 9e 28 you mentioned was sold on for £68,995 when it was retailed - not bad for a car with nearly 60k miles albeit with an amazing recent 9e forged engine build Smile

Cheers Isysman. I'd have them in a GT type fun car like yours. Have them in a 991 and they're really comfortable when you're in them but u have to be ultra careful getting and out so not to ruin the bolster. Its a chore to get in and out of them and I've also tried them with lowering brackets in a 997 and I still feel I'm sitting higher than in my comforts. I bottled the GT2 aero like yours too. When pricing up via Teile or OPC (with 25% trade discount to body shop it was still extortionately dear). For the same money as aero plus paint and fit you could buy a 997 turbo with 55,000 miles!!!! I think yours is always going to be a very unique 911. I don't think you'd be able to get conversion done for what you managed to get yours done for the same money to GT2 RS spec in the current market as Porsche making it very difficult to get GT parts without paying through the nose. Just the parts via OPC and only to GT2 spec not RS was £25,000 inc vat. Then paint and fit as part of a full glass out respray. You did well there Wink

As you saw in my thread, there are many parts underneath that cost a lot of money that you probably didn’t factor in to that pricing. I don’t think I did my conversion for any cheaper than it would cost today apart from luckily finding the rear wing for less than a new one (still cost thousands though). You are correct that for the conversion you could probably buy a 997 Turbo. I’ve said this before, If I’d had to pay it one go I never would have done it. The fact I spread it over 3-4 years meant I was able to stomach it.

Apollo has the list of parts OPC sent us for GT2 aero. didnt seem as comprehensive as the list you posted up and it still came to 25k Sad

Yours is a one off. Can't see many people doing it properly like yours thumbsup
