    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Awesome. Are you going to keep them both?

    There's still hope to cross roads some day on top of one of our mountain passes...

    Also please let us have your first hand experience of the C2 vs C4 comparison.

    It would very interesting to read the real world impressions from an owner, especially in switzerland that the AWD should have a theoretical advantage.



    I aluminium bits are not available for the moment, but will check both out. Thanks.
    I will have to try for the difference between my C2S and C4S on the slippery winter roads and on snow and give my impressions at that moment.
    And it will be very interesting to see if I'm faster with this car on the track. I was doing pretty well with the C4S..
    For the moment I am trying to get used to the PDK... which gives me mixed feelings , but I only did 30 km !!

    Yeah Gnil! That's just what we all need: some "scientific" side by side comparisons. Thanks Buddy.


    Exactly, no intellectual debating theory

    Wow - lovely cars!

    Is it like sleeping with 2 women, getting to have them both?



    The difference with cars is that you cannot have them both at the same time!

    Exactly !! Should I take the old one that I know exactly how to use and abuse her and get full pleasure out of it, or the new one where I have to gently discover and still treat her like a lady

    @ MATT : I am trying to sell the C4S, but the second hand market is overflown by 997, and the prices are so low ( check out Autoscout.ch ) I had one phone call in 6 weeks ..and he was not even rely interested

    LoL Only the "old" one has the stick for maximum joy The new one with the PDK is for petting only..

    Just kidding, bud Great car you've got there - enjoy and praise yourself a happy man

    I suppose the economic climate with so many woes in the swiss banking sector doesn't help

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Congrats, beautiful car.

    I love the comparison shots, thanks for taking the time to do that .

    As I said before to me the new 997.2 seems to have a better design as opposed to 997.1. The curves flow much better.

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Very nice! Congrats!

    Hm, the C4S looks lower than the C2S.

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Great photos - you will grow to love the pdk!

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Gnil,

    congrats on owning two 997!

    looking forward to your track opinion on the PDK.

    nervous to see the two 997 parked so close together...

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Congrats gnil! Are you going to be keeping the 4S?

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Congratulations!

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Many congrats Great pics - very useful comparison Cheers

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Gnil, if possible don't turn away from your beautiful C4S. In some years you'll look back and understand that it's not worst or better than your new one, it's just a completely different machine be it in terms of the supplementary design features (4wheel drive) or in terms of the shifter interface (stick instead of PDK).

    Enjoy both in good health, anyway, anytime, any-pass

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    fab comparison pics and car!enjoy it! bravo!

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Great to see them side by side. I actually had to conclude I like your old one better...

    I still think you'll fall for the GT3 someday

    Congrats!

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Congratulations ! I could see it live today and it's a pure beauty in black !

    No, will sell it..if I get a buyer !!!

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    thanks for the pics, the new one look even better.

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Great comparison pics...congratulations on your FL. I actually prefer the lobster wheels and the front bumper design of the 997.1

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    nice car! u happy with the PDK?
    actually just passed by vaud on sat night...

    greets rantanplan

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Why does the 997.1 C4S look lower than the 997.2 C2S?

    Next time you are around we could go for a coffee
    It is too early for me to comment on the PDK, I have done only 340 km and not in any fun conditions .
    For the moment still mixed feelings... 60 % good 40 % strange

    The pavement is not regular. On a flat surface they have the same height more or less. The C4S might be a few mm lower due to the settlement of the suspension with time.

    You have started on a positive note. 60% good is ok for beginners.Also I see no negative %;40% "strange" means you need some more time to acclimatise.

    I can't wait for my PDK in 12/08. I go every so often to the OPC and drive their demo. And every time I discover more pleasure and functionality. Manual gearchange and clutch pedal on my other car appear to me prehistoric stone age tools already!

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    seeing like that makes me realize how nice the facelift is

    Re: Pics of my new 997.2 C2S + 997 C4S

    Nice !!! but I kind of prefer the old one (mostly rims+color)
    Enjoy breaking in!
