    Joining the fold

    Thought I'd say hello as I'm trading my 997 C2S in tomorrow against a 3 month old basalt/black 997 TT with 1,400 miles on the odometer. The spec includes: -

    Adaptive sports seats
    Cruise control
    Electric slide/tilt sunroof
    Extended navigation module
    Heated seats
    ParkAssist
    Rear wiper
    Sport Chrono Package Plus
    Sport shifter
    Telephone module
    Three-spoke multi-function steering wheel in smooth leather
    Windscreen with grey top tint

    I may have trouble sleeping tonight

    Re: Joining the fold

    You have every right not to sleep tonight. We all feel your pain. You'll be in for a big suprise moving from C2S to TT. Enjoy.

    Re: Joining the fold

    Thanks for all of the positive comments. I've also got an 06 Gallardo egear so I'm looking forward to seeing how these two differ in terms of driving dynamics.

    Re: Joining the fold

    ISUK, I presume thats the one from Silverstone Porsche then as I recognise the spec...I was quite fancying that one myself, adapt sports seats are a must and the other options are all good... was going to pop down this weekend for a look, but wont bother now if youve bought it!!!

    Re: Joining the fold

    Chris,

    Yes, that's the one. Sorry about that Look on the bright side though...I've saved you a few quid in petrol

    Re: Joining the fold

    I shall keep looking then ISUK...there does seem to be a leaning towards black on the Porsche used cars, and to be honest I dont know if its black I would really want, so youve saved me a tough choice!!. Quite like the look of guards red on the Turbo ( my C4S is red )as Im getting a tad bored of greys/silvers/blacks...but I do admit it does look great in black...oh well back to dreaming then

    Re: Joining the fold

    Wow, wow, WOW, wow....... WOW!!! What a fantastic car. The acceleration is phenomenal in 3rd gear and the sound of the turbo's spooling up is certainly very different to the NA flat 6 in the C2S with the PSE. I missed that great noise at first but after a few miles of driving it quickly became obvious it was more than a fair trade for the incredible talents of the TT. The car feels absolutely planted to the road and goes about it's business of simply demolishing traffic with little fuss or drama. In the Lambo the wail of the V10 is incredible and you find yourself swapping gears just to hear the noise but the surgical precision of the way the TT just gets the job done is something else. It is such a relaxed drive it is incredible. I can't believe the difference to the C2S I drove for the last time today. The speed you can carry into and out of corners in the TT is so much greater and you seldom feel the need to wait for the appropriate moment to put the power down on a wet road or bend. I could scarcely believe I was still driving a 997. I'm going to enjoy this car a heck of a lot I think.
