    Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    I had danced around about getting a 993TT as a toy, but decided to treat myself to the best DD on the planet, put my money down, now I gotta spec it on Friday.
    Tell me what y'all think!
    Midnight blue on sea blue/ 6 speed
    LSD, Sport Chrono
    Heated Sport seats, seat crests
    fire extinguisher
    thicker wheel
    supple leather
    Can't think of anything else.
    TIA
    Chris

    Fire Extinguisher?

    Why bother. Its just exta weight and won't actually save anything if it actually DOES catch fire.

    Ditch it.

    I track my cars often, a FE is required. The aftermarket bracket and bottle actually cost more than the option itself.

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    They are expensive but, I love the PCCB's.

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    Yes, PCCB would be nice.

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    Adaptive sports seats? Definitely worth it to get the short shifter option from the dealership when it arrives.

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    I'm gettin' the 0$ sport seats, the ssk I'll do myself it's a peice of cake.
    PCCB's are no better than steels on a 3400lb car according to Dave Murry and Walter R. Plus I can't stomach the thought of a 10k brake job in the future.

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    I think you specced it right.
    No need for PCCB's really , I still have time to spec my Turbo until the end of November (March '07 build) and I might add them , still not sure though.
    Btw , do not think you can order supple leather in combination with sport seats. Doesn't look 'right' either imo.
    I always prefer a black int. but that's just me.

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    I wasn't sure what your focus was but the more I hear from you the more I realize that your options have pretty much been chosen from the start. What sort of opinions were you hoping to hear from us folks?

    I do suggest that you reconsider getting supple leather. It's not as "grippy" as the standard leather which might be a factor since you obviously intend to track your car.

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    Chris you can't get supple with sport seats. I would ditch the thicker wheel and supple for the adaptives.

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    Why ditch the thicker wheel? This was probably one of my favorite upgrades. Made driving so much more fun.

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    I wonder how much the Euro CGT style shells cost

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    Thanks Doug and everybody else, just wanted a little input, maybe sway me one way or the other.
    I have the supple now, think I will pass and just go with the adaptive sport seats rather than the free sports. Still +/- on the thicker wheel, but it's only another 300$, wtf.

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    Great choice, going with the adaptive seats and the thicker spokes:



    The car I drove in Austria had both plus the shortshifter and that truly made the car a killer!

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    I ended up with sc, lsd, adaptives, heat, crests, fire ext and the thicker wheel, midnight/sea blue 6spd 128k.
    thanks all for the input

    Good decision. Absolutely hate the suppely ruffled Caddy Eldorado stuff. Get the thicker wheel too. Not just for the thickness but you'll need the better leather on track days.

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    I specced mine out today: Meteor Grey, Cocoa, sport chrono, lsd, adaptive seats, thicker wheel, crests,fire extinguisher. And my only fluff item IMO, door finishers in leather.

    Re: Help, 'specing it 'out Friday!

    I would also get the phone module (666) and the Adaptive Sport Seats.
