Congrats on the car, although others are being passive aggressive with the wheels on your car. They are widely considered to be the worst wheel for the 997. The gold standard is the Turbo I wheel, and I've been fortunate enough to enjoy the benefits that they bring, money, fame, adulation. But I'm looking for the quiet life now, so if you're lookingn for your first mod, I'd be happy to swap the wheels with you to pass the baton on. Grin Grin Grin
May you enjoy in good health Thumb

Thumb Best wheel/colour combo... although I'm biased on that front.

Nice car. Not seen those door badges before; surely not standard?

Only had the car 3 weeks, they were on the car and were one of a few things that I thought made the car a little individual.
