    Since I had my little vaccum cleaner (for little stones and debris), aka 944 S2 Smiley  I put PPF on all my Porsche, gives me a peace of mind ...

    You'd have to try it to know how well it works.  If I was in a big hurry, I could just spray the car with a water hose (or self-service car wash rinse cycle only) without any soap and over 90% of the dirt and brake dust would be gone and the water runs off the car so quickly, that you could get away without drying it too (just a quick drive to get the remaining drops off).

    This wouldn't work without the coating...

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I will not PPF my RS. But I do understand Grant's point about roads in rural areas. Should I ever need a touch up, the paint shop that our local Porsche dealer highly recommends does a terrific job at a reasonable price. For me PPF would be a waste of money.

    FWIW, I have yet to engage the paint shop for their services.kiss

    That's pretty quick (5.5 sec quicker than CG's lap in AMG GTR).  Do we know whether standard or R tires?

    R tires. But, same special tires for GT-R as well. 

    Regarding tires for 991.2 GT3 or 991.2 GT3 RS... For track use only special Cup 2 is the best. For combined use on purpose lid roads and track Dunlop Race Maxx 2 is the best due to better wet handling then normal Cup 2s. Dunlop's also look better on the wheel because Cup 2 have that cartoonish overinflated tire sidewall look. Ok, that is subjective buy, I always see it that way.

    BTW, 991.2 GT3 RS is coming to my garage as well soon.  More when it arrives...

    R for track use only, for 991.2 GT3 RS. Dunlop Race Maxx 2 for mixed use. That is my personal opinion.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I hated the Dunlops, at least the first gen which came with my car. They worked well in the wet and cold - perhaps better than Cup, who knows. My issue was no-one seemed to have any clue how to run them at the track. Not even the Dunlop engineers I asked when they were present at Scuderia Hanseat as a sponsor. They just gave some vague answers and said it depends what you want to achieve.

    In contrast, everyone seems to understand the Cups - a simple question gives a simple answer and everyone is pretty happy.

    I didn't care for the Dunlops on my GT4 either (on track).  They had a very short life on the track.  No complaints on the road.

    Took delivery of my car this morning blush !!!

    Love it !  Looking at it , I should not PPF it , but put under a glass bowl and never touch it indecision

    Drove 5 km only ...... noticed the mechanical gear noises have sadly gone , but there are also some better sounds to compensate , like the exhaust when changing gear . The sound is more menacing , more brute . Also the car seems a bit louder .... even if this part is hard to say for the moment .

    Just some quick pics ... Got a nice tyre pressure present with the car in a GT3 RS boxe . 

    Tires are Dunlop Race 2
