    If you forget your camera, I "fire" you as moderator.

    Wow, you must be so excited, congratulations again and drive carefully! I know you'll be very occupied tomorrow but I'd ask you to keep your eyes open and maybe you're able to take an interesting picture of the 997 or something "else".
    Anyway: picking up my 996 C4 from Zuffenhausen was a very special moment in my life and I took my old man with me. It was a moment I'll never forget and I hope you have the same feeling and memories too.

    Hi zzboa,

    just checked the weather forecast. You seem to be lucky with the weather! Have fun and a safe trip home

    Mr. RS - I'm still trying to arrive a decision about the roll cage colour. On your picture the white roll cage really looks great. In my opinion it looks a little bit sportier than the black one.
    Maybe you could make one or two more pictures from the inside? I would be deeply grateful.





    Mobile,

    I will take some pitures of the interior this weekend as I am having the full cage installed.

    I also have the centre console in white which IMO is a nice touch.

    Whilst at the Factory I did see an RS with white cage, white console, white gearstick, white seat backs, white seat "wings" white door pulls, white... you get the picture!

    Not to my taste but each to their own .

    As I put more miles on the car it just gets better and better.

    I know this is going to sound like justification for spending another Pounds15K for what in essence a GT3 with a few add ons, but it is just so much better than the GT3. Can't put my finger on exactly what it is yet but as the miles continue to be added I am sure it will come to me.

    One immediate differanace is in the build quality. Again, I know that the cars are all built on the same line but it just seems to be better screwed togeather. My Mk2 had a few squeeks and rattles from new but this is absolutely rock solid. More like a 993 in terms of that old rock solid Porsche build quality.

    Only down side, and I would like to hear from other RS owners, is the bonnet is not the best fit. Maybe it is just my car or it could be something to do with the CF, anyway I am back at the dealers on Saturday for them to have a look.

    P.

    That would be really nice. Thanks in advance.

    That's even better. I was also thinking about a centre console in white. My cars in the last ten years always had a interior fully in black. I think it's time to test something new.

    Definitive to much white for me.

    Some of my friends - female - even can not belive that I have orderd a white Porsche. "No one could bring me to step in such a car."

    Who cares - it's a RS not a taxi

    Re: MaxT and LG1 GT3's (RS)

    Mobile,

    Went to the dealers yesterday to get the rest of the cage etc but was unable to fit it into the car. Therefore intrerior pictures will be a bit later than promised.

    This car just gets better and better with every mile!

    Have you started marking the days off yet?
