    Re: My new 991 C2 S

    It will be interesting to see how you will be able to do the ' mod' for the always on exhaust . Is there a cut off between 50 and 80 km/h ?  Can it be switched on and off independently from the sports button ?

    Re: My new 991 C2 S

    now the exaust come louder only with rpm >3500 and if you push "hard" the trottle... ( original carrera S map)

    then... I don't know . Consider that my Pzentrum has not the 991 tecnical book yet :(

    if we are in troubles , we disconnect the wiring from valves and they wil be only on : )

    I'ts a 991Coupe S , silver.....

     

     

    Hello sergini!

    Would you please specify the color? Somebody mentioned Platinum here ... but it looks more like GT-silver on the starship shot.

     

    Thanks

    Gregor


    Re: My new 991 C2 S

    Congrats to your car and congrats to your exhaust.

    I heard that the car is in Sports Mode always loud yes

    Anyway - there must be a switch box like in the 997 - you just have to find it. You PZentrum might tell you if you ask broken heart


    Re: My new 991 C2 S

    Hi Rc :)



    the car is Platinum Metallic , the same of panamera silver .




    Platinum Silver, best color for the 991 imo.

    Hi Nico, nice to see you back Smiley

    I see you changed your 997.2 manual for a 991 PDK . So you finally crossed to the dark side Smiley  What are you impressions ? and over the whole 991 package ?

    Hi Sergio, long time no read Smiley Many congrats on your beautiful 991S - great looking combo though I guess the Interior is Espresso  rather than Cocoa Smiley

    Re: My new 991 C2 S

    sergini:

    thanks guys !

    I love that car ! I had 7 porsche ,but every time the last is better then others : ) 

    for lowering I have 2 options : H&R by FVD, very cheap , I had H&R in my former 997.2 S , the car looks better but bad confort ( no problem for me using also a Cup ) and K&W , both 30 mm lowering .

    better H&R or K&W ?

    what about Cargraphic ? they seems to have not new items from a long time....Smiley

    I'd like to lower the car only 20 mm ( i live in old city with bad streets) but seems that all tuners do 30 ... I can do 1 cm spacer by my Motorsport team but I don't know....

    this was my former Porsche lowered 30mm 

     

     

    997 S .2 cabriolet Pdk ,997 Gt3 cup 07 

     

    Don´t go 30mm on your new stock beautiful 991, it will look to much "tuning look", not OEM. If you go 20mm it will be perfect and that´s what Porsche uses too. Your former 997.2 was to low, look at my 997.2 with 20mm, 10mm really makes a difference. Try to get a company who can get you 20mm, maybe Eibach have it already!!!

    J.Seven

     


    Re: My new 991 C2 S

    Steven you are right , -30 is too much and H&R are too hard for standard absorbers , better Eibach.

    i ordered Eibach and they will be avaible in Italy next month .

    i mounted the PSE , what a wonderful sound!!

    Next week we try to put the PSE button , but even if doesn't fit ( unless tequimpent PSE is not avaible) the sound is not too loud . I ll drive allways with PSE on ... And for long distance trip in motorway I'll go in 7th at 150 kmh at 3000 rpm ..perfect.

    - here is my car with PASM Sport.

    - lowered by 20 mm from stock

    - improves everything and still has better clearance than my old Boxter S RS-60

    Re: My new 991 C2 S

    some pics done last week in Italy :)

     

     
     
     
     
    I'm waiting Eibach springs , I hope to have them soon. I'll put springs and 7mm spacers ( from my former Cabrio)
     
    I did with the car 1300 km : speedway , city , mountain roads .....
     
    The car is FANTASTIC ! the PSE sound is good and not too much loud ( like 997 PSE) , the best is the interior soud , similar to my 997 Cup car ...amazing ! ( maybe too loud if you want to speak at phone with hands free .... or if you go in speedway ... louder then my cabrio ... but it's a Porsche not an Audi ! )
     
    the car needs a setup , too much understeering and no feeling with front axle , the back is too much soft and it's difficoult to do stupid oversteering ( sportpluns-pasm hard - psm off - paddles)  , when I'll put spring I'll do more camber in the front and a little bit toe in the rear . 
     
    I drove a Dealer's 991 S pdk in Imola track last week ....... 
    the car had a little setup and it's better : tuns good and with more speed then 997.2 ( you can do Piratella very good) , but the back ( in slow turns) oversteers a lot ( during turning and braking at same time :RIvazza 2 ) ... maybe tires or toe... or ....... street adsorbs ( pasm hard, sport plus, psm on ) 
     
    in track I don't like PDK ...... it's fast , it's good ,BUT ...... I hate that stupid downshifting .... too slow , and ( like other stupid automatic gearboxes) you can not downshift at high rpm .... only if you brake very much the gear enter .
     
     
    for street ( fast or slow) , PDK is the best , much better than 997.2 PDK , faster and in sport plus  very exciting .......... and the auto blipper is fantastic !

    Re: My new 991 C2 S

    PDK is not an automatic gearbox, you just need to get used to it. Of course you can downshift at higher rpm but when the system "feels" that you could hit the rev limiter, you can't shift. I remember a friend who owns a GT3 and when asked how many times he actually hit the rev limiter when shifting, he always said never. At his first engine failure, he got into a fight with Porsche and they found at least 20(!) relevant rev limiter events in the system. Smiley Apparently he wasn't aware of it...adrenaline pumping and all. 

    The factory chassis setups are very conservative, there is definitely room for improvements.

    Congratulations again, beautiful car. kiss

    Thanks for the pics and report.

    That is also my main ( and only real one ) complain . The stupid downshifting that feels like an automatic Smiley

    I was yesterday at the track in DIjon and coming up from the ' dip' it did that Smiley  I then had to be faster so it would stay in gear Smiley
