    Launch last night in uk

    Hi guys went to launch at Lancasters Colchester last night,had a great night,champagne was flowing all night,mostly in my direction which was just fine.As i got out my car in the carpark i stood and watched a convoy of 996s m3s ferrari turning up to the event, i thought i may just look around the carpark for a while Anyway went into the showroom and got my first look of a 997s ,which looked exactly as i expected,beautiful.This will be my first porsche and i have got a December build date for my 997s so i have to spec my car very shortly and one of the most difficuly decisions is which suspension to choose so i start asking the sales guys about the -20mm lsd set up that RC has admired in his car.To my suprise and slight annoyance they didnt seem that interested in the -20mm setup and told me that knowbody else has ordered it so why would i want to. Having read lots of post on this forum about how you guys in the states are unable to get this no cost option on the 997s, it kind of annoyed me to think that knowbody out of 80 orders had opted for this setup .As my car is only gonna be used as a fun car and not my daily drive,i am still tempted to be the only one to choose this option,even though i wont track my car.What do you guys think? and is anybody in the uk choosing -20mm?

    Robbo,
    I have ordered the -20mm sports sus on my 10 Oct. S.

    and btw; what kind of a dork is that salesman? I mean, DOES IT MATTER whether anybody ordered tha susp? NO! It matters what you like. I think what he tried to tell you was something like: "hey, I'm just a stupid salesman, I don't know anything about it"...

    Re: Launch last night in uk

    Yes Joost i think you are correct he started off telling me that pasm and -20mm was the same ride height and that when you push the sport button on the dash the car lowers itself 10mm?

    Re: Launch last night in uk

    The Blue interior looks great doesn't it. Good piccie. Amazing also how crap the steering wheel looks in piccies but how good it looks in the flesh. I wish they would do a multi-function version of it so I didn't have to go for the older style wheel.

    Re: Launch last night in uk

    I ordered the -20 mm setup with LSD because it is going to be my fun / track car and I'm not very crazy about comfiness in it .. if I wanted a comfortable ride, I'll drive my Mercedes. Hopet his hels

    Re: Launch last night in uk

    Thanks muhri i cant decide whether to go pasm or -20mm LSD,does anybody know if the pasm setup has a LSD aswell as surely a powerful car needs one ?

    Re: Launch last night in uk

    The LSD is only available with the -20 mm suspension. The pasm does not come with it. On Sept. 30th I will test drive both -20 and PASM cars hopefully and will have more insight. Though I already spec'ed my car with the -20 mm suspension..

    Re: Launch last night in uk

    Great shot of the blue interior - I'm sticking with the PSM for now, although have until December 2004 to change my spec, so waiting to hear more feedback on the LSD or PSM...
