    @JohnH, together with "dreamcar" I represent the very very exclusive "Cayman and Boxster GTS by personal invitation only group" in this forum...Smiley

    I ordered the grills directly on the zunsport website last year and was able to claim a rebate with a discount code (10 %) zunsport offered for planet-9.com members. I would just give them a ring and ask - they have been very helpful and delivery was fast and without problems.  Hope, this helps.

    Very exclusive club indeed...Smiley  I'm grateful for your input.. Many thanks.

    John, no problem I had man flu anyway so wouldnt  have been  great company. I will just keep the GTS part of the badge in the middle of course but it means paying for another badge ho hum. Catch up soon. 


    Re: Collected my GTS today

    Nigel, I've got a spare '911' badge if you'd like to make it look - 911 GTS..?  Having said that, I've had quite a few strangers say to me - I've heard of the 'Porsche Carrera GT'.  So yours must be even more special?  Smiley Smiley

    Speak soon...

    That's it?! yes 

    You could upgrade the suspension to Bilstein PSS10... upgrade to firmer H&R anti-roll bars... install a GT3 throttle body... change the lower control arms to GT3 counterparts... etc.

    Lots of outstanding tasks. indecision

    @ legin - I enjoyed our meet-up very much.  So glad you were impressed with the SharkWerks soundtrack..kiss

    Grills were delayed - hopefully they will arrive this week.. The SharkWerks exhaust continues to improve & impress - never had so much interest in my car..kiss

    Pleased to hear that (hopefully for real in June) Smiley I don't know how the exhaust in our "Baby GTS" could be improved, it's pretty outrageous for a modern street - legal car. Certainly at our jhalf - day experience at Silverstone the Boxster and Cayman GTS could be heard clearly above all the other cars there.  Smiley

    Re: Collected my GTS today

    The only thing I would improve on my GTS is...power. 50 hp more and the car would be amazing. Also, I wish the sound system (BOSE) would be much better, it sucks so much that I am glad I can listen to the exhaust/engine sound instead.  Should have ordered Burmester, big mistake.

    Have Bose fitted in my car. Never listen to it, the surround sound engine / exhaust sound is much better. Don't think I would listen to Burmester if I had it either......Smiley

    Re: Collected my GTS today

    Agree totally DC. Sport Exhaust with the top down makes any sound system a waste. Frankly I use CD-R plus for phone calls, I never use the stereo

    Dude, you live in Texas. If I would live in Texas, I wouldn't need a sound system either. Smiley We have 6 months cold weather and/or rain in Bavaria, most of the time I drive with the top closed and mostly in the city. A good sound system would come in very handy. Smiley Luckily, the BOSE sounds (borderline) "acceptable" with the top closed.

    Re: Collected my GTS today

    @mcdelaug, dreamcar, RC:

    I'm with you guys...the 997 GTS sport exhaust note (especially with the top down) is my favorite tune...beats the heck out of BOSE!  ...and I always receive compliments at the track. 

    However, I also relate to RC.  I sure wish I had another 50 HP too!  kiss  

    SharkWerks advertises "adding 20 hp is relatively easy" on the 997 GTS  ...but would that really be worth it and noticeable? 

    ...and to add significantly more than 20 HP requires a bit too much tinkering with "The Baby" I am afraid.   surprise


    Re: Collected my GTS today

    Forget about 20 hp...not worth it...

    Re: Collected my GTS today

    RC:

    Forget about 20 hp...not worth it...

     My sentiments exactly!   Smiley


    Re: Collected my GTS today

    Remember - 20 hp:

    1. is the difference between sunshine or rainy weather 
    2. is the difference between high or low altitude
    3. is within the range of factory build deviation
