    GTS Update

    Just found out all GTS delivered to the Middle East come with the sunroof as standard. A bit annoyed as it does not appear on the standard items spec sheet & am not a fan as too much blowing sand & dust here. Wish it had been an option.

    On a brighter note, the ship docks in Dubai at the end of May, so should have my car by early June - cant wait esp if you saw what I am driving now - 25 year old LWB Pajero nicknamed "The Bus"


    Re: GTS Update

    , good luck with delivery, post many pics  


    Re: GTS Update

    Was supposed to collect my GTS today. Arrived at the showroom only to be told it failed its PDI - no cooling from the AC & no idea whats causing the problem. Finally got a call 6 hours later saying there is a  leak in the system & they are in the process of trying to find it. So much for quality control in Stuttgart. Just hope my car is not one of those lemons that slip through the system occassionally & give their owner nothing but aggro

    Just hope they dont have to rip the car to pieces in their search as my confidence in their ability is still dented from work they did on my previous Porsche's.

    Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day


    Re: GTS Update

    Best of luck buddy - sorry to hear about the delay...

    What a disappointment that must have been - sorry to hear about it.  Be sure to let us know how it pans out - hopefully just a minor glitch.

    More pics to follow. AC leak turned out to be a defective o ring on a connection next to the battery area. Phew -  that avoided them tearing the car apart.

    First 100k's of the 3000k running in done but I think I will follow RC's method in another post.

    Initial impressions:

    Solid & sure footed (as expected)

    Prefer the paddles to the buttons

    Suspension more compliant than the Cayman S

    The sound - OMG..... Blissful.Smiley 


    Re: GTS Update

    Wonderful car - many congrats - enjoy

     Great to see a yellow 997, goes well with the GTS look.

    Re: GTS Update

     Great specification!

    Does the suspension eventually settle down a little or does it stay that 'elevated'?


    Re: GTS Update

    I love speed yellow as well - it's a great colour - looks great in sunnier climates too

    Re: GTS Update

    Great color, classic 911 livery. Your comment on the suspension was a surprise. For some reason, I wouldn't have expected the GTS to be more compliant than the Cayman. Is that a normal 911/cayman difference? Good luck and enjoy.

    Congratulations Smiley

    The Cayman had PASM Smiley

    Some people (at rennteam) snub the 911 sound Smiley

    Just a few more pics of the occassion. Forgot to mention, fitted with Pirelli shoes - guess I got the short straw.Would have preffered Michelin or Bridgestone


    Re: GTS Update

    Pirelli don't last very long. Therefore, you'll soon fit your preferred brand.

    Re: GTS Update

    Thanks Reginos - recall the Pirelli's on my Merc didnt last.

    No PASM on the Cayman which I guess accounts for the difference


    Re: GTS Update

    Congrats, your car looks awesome.  Smiley

    Having owned a Cayman S without PASM, I can confirm that the GTS suspension is definitely more compliant, at least in Normal mode (goes for most 911s with PASM).

    Congrats on the delivery, sweet looking car.


    Re: GTS Update

    Thanks for all the comments guys. John I already have black marks at the edge of the stone guards. Looked at the Autoglym website but no mention of the "magic sponge". Can you tell me the product real name or is that against RT policy.


    Re: GTS Update

    Congrats - Love the GTS !

    That's fine Smiley

    Members helping each other out is normal ...

    Amongst other things, what is prohibited is commercial businesses pretending to be normal users of RT in an effort to attract business.

    Re: GTS Update

    Thanks John. In the UK soon so will pick one up


    Re: GTS Update

    Hi Gilmour, glad you'll be able to get some in the UK.  They come in packs of 10 and are small in size, so re-usability is limited.  Suggest you get several packs when you visit to keep you going...

    BTW - I've just ordered a pair of black Speedster stone guards which I'm hoping will resolve the problem more permanently..

    Re: GTS Update

    That's a wonderful 911, great choice! I actually LOVE the color. Glad the AC issue was sorted easily.

    Thanks for the shots, enjoy in good health!!

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: GTS Update
