    Re: decision made - countdown on

    Congrats on your decision. IMO Black suits the 997 much better then the red. Since 2002 I've had 2 Black BMW's and now have a Black 2003 Merc. ML320, Black 2004 Dodge Durango and a Black Porsche 2002 Turbo. You've probably heard it before but gloss Black is the hardest color to keep clean. Nothing looks as good as Black when it is detailed but nothing looks as bad as black when it's dirty. And many of the Silvers you can go numerous hand washes before having to glaze or wax the car again where's black I've always liked to wax the car once for every 3 or 4 washes. When I'm done detailing Black it's really satisfying. No other color will reflect an image like gloss black. ..I've never really been a fan of tan interiors. Tan often looks very plastic where as black interiors have a deep, modern, richness. I also love the contrast between the 997's silver accents across the dash with a black iterior. I ordered Black Full leather on my incoming 997S cab. I love the way Black on Black looks but it's definately all a matter of personal preference/ opionion.

    Welcome to the Porsche club. You'll be hooked for life.

    Just keep in mind that HP, acceleration,and performance are things that after a period of time,you just get used to them.
    I totally did with my 997, now i m keep thinking even if the S is enough.




    No it's not enough. It will never be. Horse power it's like drugs- you always need a bigger dose. The difference is that you can always have the time to exploit YOUR limits, to feel the car, to improve your "lines" and control.

    997 has huge potential- way beyond average user's skills.
    Have fun.
