    Help on 997 GT2 set up

    I've been thinking about buying a 997 GT2, and I would appreciate some opinions on its set up.

    911 GT2


    Pounds 130,017.00


    Exterior colour Carrara White

    Interior colour leather interior black, seats leather/Alcantara

    Exterior Windscreen with grey top tint
    ParkAssist
    Side Skirts
    Automatically dimming interior and exterior mirrors with integrated rain sensor
    Red taillights
    Sport bucket seats
    Cruise control
    Seat belts in Guards Red
    Rear centre consol in leather
    Inner door-sill guards in leather
    Interior light surround in leather
    Outer door-sill guards in carbon
    Porsche Vehicle Tracking System (VTS)
    Chrono Package Plus
    BOSE(R) Surround Sound System
    Factory collection

    I've discarded installing Clubsport Package because I think rear cage will be noisy, any other idea?

    If you like Carbon :

    3-spoke multi function steering wheel in carbon
    Carbon package
    Door entry guards in carbon illuminated
    Telephone module
    Porsche crest embosed on head restraints

    Mine should be ready tomorrow, it's been at the workshop since Thursday for PDI

    Re: Help on 997 GT2 set up

    Thank you buddie! I'll take some of them for granted... does anybody know if the rear cage is useful for inly a 20% of the use for trackdays?

    Re: Help on 997 GT2 set up

    You forgot sun visors in leather
    and the tyre pressure monitoring system.

    Regarding carbon options: IMHO they look nice, especially with the buckets (which have a CF foil on the back). However, stick with the standard steering wheel. The carbon steering wheel has too large and too thin at the same time, and Alcantara has more grip than CF and leather.

    Re: Help on 997 GT2 set up

    The tyre pressure is standard equipment, I presume, but I agree about steering wheel, I really like Alcantara although its life is shorter...

    Re: Help on 997 GT2 set up

    I just checked, and the TPM is indeed standard on the Turbo and GT2.

    Alcantara doesn't last as long, but it can be replaced...

    Re: Help on 997 GT2 set up

    Anchorage points for cage and harnesses are standard so these can be fitted retrospectively if necessary.
    Regards

    Re: Help on 997 GT2 set up

    Thanks Lancerlot, perhaps Clubsport can be mounted and the cage fitted or not according to that day's use? Do you think is easy? or even practical? I'll ask my dealer's suggestion...

    Re: Help on 997 GT2 set up

    It's a bolt-in system so it's possible but will not be a 5 minute job I suspect!
    Regards.

    Re: Help on 997 GT2 set up

    Hello Xavi,

    Congrats on the marvelous car. Just an observation: On a white car with black interior, wouldn't red seat belts clash a little bit with yellow brakes? There are now 4 (5?) prominent colors for the car (black, white, yellow, red, and grey (?) for the Alcantara). Maybe yellow belts, if you must have color belts?

    Re: Help on 997 GT2 set up

    Wicked options, wicked car.

    Factory option a must.

    Hmmm... touché! Thanks for this advice... Lovely!

    Re: Help on 997 GT2 set up

    yellow belts all the way, congrats thats one mean ride

    Re: Help on 997 GT2 set up

    Hahahaha... Sure!!!

    Re: Help on 997 GT2 set up

    You are welcome; always a pleasure to help another Turbo addict spend $ on his beauty.

    BTW, if you feel particular adventurous, your car's color combination, and the fact that it's a GT2, make me think this is the one time that yellow dials might work very well.

    I've seen a black Turbo with similar treatments to yours: black leather, CF pieces, yellow brake, yellow belts, except that the dials are yellow as well. I've always thought Porsche yellow dials are "too much" until I see this car: The interior looks unusually gorgeous to my eyes and gave me second thoughts about my relatively bland beige.
    The owner posts in another forum, his car is in this thread: http://69.13.120.185/forums/showthread.php?t=120613&page=4 ,
    if interested, you might want to PM him and ask for pictures.

    Thanks Can, perhaps that is a risky set up for my wife's mood!
