    Picked up my Turbo Cab!

    Picked up my car the week before last but drove it directly to Detailing Dynamics for clear film etc. Picked it up from DD Thursday. It's been raining cats & dogs here since then so my driving impressions are on the back-burner. I wont care about driving the car in the rain normally but would like to enjoy the 1st professional detail for a few dry days before using it all the time. But so far love the way the Sport Shifter feels & the exhaust is absolutely perfect for what I wanted. Even with the very limited miles so far it really does feel night and day compared to my 997 S cab but I'm looking forward to taking a few hundred mile trip next weekend & want to get the break-in miles behind me as fast as possible. I couldn't be happier with how the car came out especially the wheels & the interior which I need to get more pictures of. It came w/ the Michelins which made me happy. Many thanks to you guys for all the great feedback & suggestions, this really is my dream car. Anyway it's like this:

    997 TURBO CABRIOLET

    MODS:

    - Carbon Fiber trim strip
    - Champion RS171 wheels - black/black center caps w/ larger Porsche Crest
    - Poggipolini Titanium wheel bolts
    - V1 - hardwired
    - Clear side markers
    - Porsche all weather mats
    - 35% tint all round
    - Smart-top
    - 3M Body armour front bumper, lights, fogs, behind each wheel, removed factory film & installed one piece 3M film on side and rockers, front panels. Venture film on hood (1piece)

    Eventually I'd like to do the TechArt CF steering wheel & some other stuff like Laser Interceptor diffusors. Also need to get all-season tires next fall to fit the factory wheels, etc.

    Legend Porsche installed the Tubi, plenum & trim strip at no charge & did a great job w/ delivery. They left all the white factory film on the car like I asked. Detailing Dynamics did all the rest of the above mods. & the detail. My thanks to Matt & Eddy at DD for the best work any ocd perfectionist could possibly wish for including painting the high speed balance weights on the wheels & the valve stems black!! These guys really are better than any therapist & IMO the very best in the world at the putting down the clear film. Matt provided all the pictures you see below...................... How's everyone? It's been a while since I visited, my vacation in Florida was amazing!

    Congratulations! Great car, great spec, great detailing. Definitely worth the wait.

    Re: Picked up my Turbo Cab!

    Congratulations Gregg - Absolutly gorgeous. Drive it in good health. I sure wish we had a high end detail shop in this area. That shine is amazing.

    Re: Picked up my Turbo Cab!

    Wow, a perfect 10!!! (And I am picky.)





    Re: Picked up my Turbo Cab!

    Congratulations Gregg! She finally came! All the work we put into helping you get her configured + figuring out what wheels, etc....all that paid off! Now I can't wait to see how she turns out when you're finished with the mods!

    Now get out there and drive her! I just got my IPD plenum installed and I LOVE it! I'm very happy that I got it.

    Sounds like you had a good time in Florida! Glad to have you back. This place wasn't the same without you around! I'm looking forward to hearing more of your driving impressions once the weather clears up!

    Re: Picked up my Turbo Cab!

    Gorgeous car my friend. Have done the exhaust and the plenum yet?

    Re: Picked up my Turbo Cab!

    very very nice turbo cab! now you have only to lower the car to be perfect

    Re: Picked up my Turbo Cab!

    Unfortunately the first page of this topic is one of those that isn't accessible for me
    I'm sure I'll be able to have a look at your stunner later on

    Re: Picked up my Turbo Cab!

    Congrats, love the wheels!
