Thanks for sharing. Car looks great on the black wheels.

I'd really love to own a turbo at some point!

Agreed, it does look so good on anthracite wheels!

Are the rear lights tinted red with a vinyl?

I did the red lights and anthracite wheels to my MX5 years ago, now thinking of doing the 911 the same!

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

My heart stopped when I saw that quote.... £10887 just for the read deck lid Surprised - Isysman got a bargain with his.

That was such a bargain, that car also had the Bilstein damptronics too.

Nine excellence are selling another 9e28 with very low miles and the Bilsteins plus that eye wateringly expensive exhaust.

My pleasure and thanks for the kind words thumbsup So much you can do with the turbo's performance wise in addition to all the bits on the 997 platform.

They really look good and I am happy with them Smile

The rear tail lights are OEM and were an option on our cars, there is a set for sale here... http://www.911uk.com/viewtopic.php?p=1421945#1421945

Apollo,

I am rethinking weheels too. Why glossy and not satin finish to the wheels?

I also fancied Weiss Gold and Chris was not very reassuring about the colour. I suspect he is protecting the Weiss Gold market Judge

Colour is so hard to choose. Finish is just as bad. Ugh.

I may never do it... just talk about it LOL

Hey mate,

Chris did try and talk me into weiss gold (showed me a few pictures) and I wanted to do it because I do like the way it looks on the GT2 and GT3 but I just couldn’t see it working on my car and he had not done them for a turbo yet... but if I ever get an areokit i’ll definitely revisit that.

As for Satan vs Gloss... that was a tough choice, I was at work and had to make a decision and ended up just going with Chris’s recommendation based on how it looked from pictures of ones he had recently done.
They really look good up close and change colour a little depending on the light. TBH I think I would have been equally happy with either.

Chris has so much experience he is worth listening to. 👍 I guess we are all at the bleading edge when we use a finish on a type of wheel that has not been done before. It’s a gamble.

Indeed, it was tough enough trying to decide between weiss gold and anthracite... picking between Satan and Gloss was a bit too much Smile

Superb!

This has really got me thinking about a 997 Turbo.. Question

I already go to 9E for servicing on my 997 and once it's ready, my 964 so naturally, I'd have to do the same as you and add on the 9e options to the service, it helps that they're only 20 mins away too.

Yours is looking amazing, I bet it f@cking flies!!

I need to try one out!

Wow 9e just sold the low miles 9e 28 for £79,995

https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/nineexcellence?source=feed_text

I think cars with 9e power kit are selling for decent premiums to standard cars looking at the last two sales of 9e 28 997.1 turbos. Nice to know Wink
