    Smiley There is only one problem: German police switched to blue/white cars a while ago but still...very nice. Frank just needs to be careful to not drive in Germany like that, it would be a serious offense. Police would be OK though. Smiley

    No longer OK in France though, where Le Mans is indecision

    I do not know his driving route or whatever, just wanted to make sure he is aware of it. German police can be a bitch sometimes. Belgium and Switzerland have borders with Germany as far as I remember, France as well. Smiley

    I'm aware of that, but my car is green, hence I took the old Polizei 911's as inspiration...

    I know, it was a very good inspiration Smiley, I just made a short note, not really important. German police is getting "Europeanized" Smiley right now, this is why they started changing colors (uniforms as well). Smiley Costs a ton of money but hey, no problem. Smiley

    Isn't there a law against impersonating a police officer? OTH, traffic will open up in front of you!

    There probably is, but the French police found it funny in any case. Took the decals off immediately after Le Mans.

    I saw a photo somebody took of your car with the decals in LeMans in my facebook wall a few days ago, I recognised the plates and color, and was wondering what the deal was indecision  ... didn't repost it here just in case I would get anyone in trouble since I didn't know what was going on angry

    There were several cases in Germany of drivers using blue LED flashers under their windshield or in the front of the car to "clear" their way through traffic. This gets pretty expensive when they catch you, also will go (often, not always) to court.

    Funny story: While I was waiting on the side of the street at my son's school to pick him up, an old VW transporter (see photo) suddenly passed by at a crazy speed with a blue LED light flashing under the windshield. I thought someone used this for fun but when I told my son, he told me that a friend's father is working for the German Kripo (police criminal investigation unit) and he just saw him (the father) a few minutes ago. A couple of seconds later, his friend knocked on the window of my car, asking me if I could take him home (he lives close to our home) because his father had to go to work. Smiley I wonder how fast a VW transporter is from 0-100... Smiley

    in France, they don't get LED flashers, you may need a high position for that, but all of them have their service card and they play a bit with that Smiley

    Did Dubai / UAE ever bother adding an R8 to their fleet of exotic police cars? Or did they consider the R8 too pedestrian?

    (RC, I thought I would help out by inserting the R8 into this thread. I hope you don't mind.)

    I like it extremely much yes, it sounds brilliant. Very, very agressive and really loud on the outside,but never disturbing on the inside.There's no drone whatsoever, and with the valves closed you can easily cruise along on the autobahn. I haven't added the muffler, I'd only do that if and when the OEM muffler cracks (which is more likely as it takes a beating with the open/long headers).

    I should make it a point to make a decent video of the sound.

    Thanks Frank. Appreciate your feedback. 


    Re: Olive 991.2 GT3 Clubsport

    Just got back from Brussels-Münich-Imola-Chianti-Münich. The car has performed faultlessly, what an absolute joy this thing. The only 'issue' was ground clearance on some Tuscan backroads/driveways or on the cobbled streets of Florence. Aside from that it was as comfortable as any car I could have wished for, yet thrilling when you wanted it to.

    Re: Olive 991.2 GT3 Clubsport

    Some news on the Olive. it meanwhile had its first service done at Manthey, as well as their suspension setup. It rides a bit lower in the front now, a bit higher in the back and approx. -3° camber back and front. They cornerweighted the car as well. Below the weight of the car in its current state, quite impressive for a 991 IMO.

    fullsizeoutput_1ac9.jpeg

    I also had a rattling checked, which was identified by a cracked muffler, a well known weak spot on the OEM exhaust, especially when driven on track. In my case it was exaggerated as my race headers effectively blow red hot exhaust gases straight through the muffler. I'm now 'forced' to go for the Dundon 'lifetime' muffler, a much sturdier design which is made to cope with the stress of the race headers.

    I always thought that the front looked a bit too high on the GT3. Maybe it’s an illusion yes

    I agree, most race shops tend to put quite some rake angle on the cars when doing their alignment. Obviously trying to shift some weight forward.

    Gesamt includes the 80kg ballast for the driver and half a tank in my case (45L). Of course my non-OEM exhaust saved 35kg in the back.

    Frank,

    Your car is just perfect, and I love how dirty it gets:)

    I just noticed you have a 500E!  My wife loved hers as did the Labs, Surf used to lie on the back shelf like a giant bobble head dog.  Would you mind posting a pic of it?  Thanks
