    Sorry to say, but I liked your car better before aswell, Carrera Classics would've been optimal imho. I don't like the look of those wheels with a cab, plus they are too large, again imho.

    I was looking forward to seeing your cars with classics, remember I said on a different thread how much I like your car.



    No worries Danny G... I have not completed the cancellation of the 19" classics and maybe when they come in I'll put them on and post it for you... for Arts sake and all



    speaks the truth only yoda... again!

    Re: I caved in...

    Hey Tooner,

    I was at the ride today and saw it in person, way cool, very unique looking cab. I really like the terracota interior. The wheels are a clean look but not to my personal taste. Taking pic's on my new ride tomorrow. will post.

    Re: I caved in...

    Gary no Cal... vtach888 and I was actually looking for you... should've said hello.


    Looking forward to your pics!

    Re: I caved in...

    Thanks guys I knew that this board is for purist and I respect that a lot! Maybe the techarts are a bit much... but I just had to try.


    Me likey a little too much for now


    Was trying to work the wifey's digital camera hope this one comes out better...


    Pics from today's drive... a bit gloomy but nice cars!

    Re: I caved in...

    You must have seen my car, the new blk/blk S with the champion wheels and Rector plate cover?

    That was a fun ride I'm going to do it again. Enjoyed the speed run down 84 with a 1997 turbo.

    Re: I caved in...

    - not many 997's but found a red TIP

    Re: I caved in...

    another red tip

    Re: I caved in...

    ahem...

    Re: I caved in...

    It looks so good lowered why are not more people lowering them ? I think the factory front end of the aero kit would look great on this car not the Techart with the side skirts but the factory aero kit front minus the wing .




    I'm craving for the GT style front end LoL... we'll see...

    Any thoughts?

    I missed it Gary! I only saw the Red TIP... I was in the SLOW group...LOL... first timer

    Re: I caved in...



    hmmmmmmmmm with the 20's

    Re: I caved in...

    i saw that car on 6speedonline the other day and my jaw droped - looks amazing!

    Re: I caved in...

    Hi Tooner,

    I've always loved your car 's terracotta interior, and I say it still looks good with the new wheels. But somehow I think these particular wheels would look better on a coupe than a cab. Especially a turbo coupe... Maybe you can explain that to the wifey!

    Re: I caved in...

    hi toons, congrats on the new add'on to your car

    i prefer how your car looked in the beginning, but it's what makes YOU happy that counts congrats once again!

    btw did you have to put on new tires? and aren't the techart's rear tire size bigger than the standard carrera rims?

    Yeah I had to settle for Conti's because the Michellins took forever to get here... there not even here yet for the Classics I ordered.

    Just kidding Stradale... I glued to the car like little boy and my friend kept saying lets go to the next one... but I did not move an inch

    Re: I caved in...

    Stradale:

    The SS door sills would look suave right?

    Re: I caved in...

    bling bling away... LOL

    Re: I caved in...

    Ok now I finally know how to work infraview and a digital cam... phew!

    Re: I caved in...

    Those are very pretty wheels. What are they exactly? The pix with the windows down look better because you can see the terracotta interior instead of the glare off the glass. Awesome color combination.

    why is it that the tire size that the 997 uses is so hard to find?!

    Mike it's the Rears that are a bitch! Michellins particularly the stock size of 295/30 ZR 19's have been on back order since i can remember.

    Re: I caved in...

    jeeez, i hope nothing ever happens to my rear tires, knowing how slow things work in SA, i'll die of old age before i receive my tires :P

    Re: I caved in...

    I still think you should have picked up the 19 carrera classic wheels.

    I just found pics of the exact same car with those wheels. Check it out.
