    997 S wifes new ride

    Just picked up a black/black couple of days ago. She hasn't let me drive it yet so can't review it. As a passenger..louder exhaust,faster acceleration and a
    bigger smile on her face! It has the ceramic brakes/sport
    package etc.

    The 99k launch vehicles are sweet

    What is the sport package? -20mm suspension? I thought you won't get these in the foreseeable future!

    You bought the car and she doesn't let you drive?

    What kind of male-chauvinist question is that? If a lady buys a 997S, your first thought is to have your suspicion confirmed that she will have ordered a Tiptronic transmission!

    It was an ordinary gender-neutral question.

    he was asking _which_ tranny she selected.

    he didn't chauvinistically assume it was a tip.

    The car-consumer statistical facts _are_ however that women do desire the automatics more than guys.

    Re: 997 S wifes new ride

    yes, naturally i would suspect a woman would generally opt for the tiptronic... but hey not all women are like that, some like to drive their cars

    Re: 997 S wifes new ride

    Long time no see Wayne

    Sounds like a nice car manual or tips?

    Re: 997 S wifes new ride

    6 speed of course! TIPTRONIC BITE YOUR TONGUE my wife says!!

    Re: 997 S wifes new ride

    Well, my wife gets to keep her 2002 Honda Civic when I get my 997S.

    Don't worry MaxErnst. My male "chauvinist comment" was meant as a joke, not a rebuke.
    Note the emoticon:

    And besides, Andrew has confirmed in the meantime that he was "guilty" of stereotyping.

    Re: 997 S wifes new ride

    Egear .9200 miles on it
    It is E-GEAR because E=gear is better not because
    I'm a whoosh!!

    Wayne the 997S is a good car for a woman.
