    A couple new mods

    A couple months ago I added the 997 GT2 side rocker panels




    But it looked incomplete without the front/rear painted lips so I had those painted




    And for the final touch I added the TechArt exhaust tips. This picture was taken during installation to compare the stock vs TechArt.


    I hope to take some more pictures tomorrow at the Cars & Coffee meet showing the completed look.

    Stay tuned!

    Re: A couple new mods

    Looking forward to more pics, it looks sharp!!!

    Not thinking about the GT2-bumper and TechArt-diffusor? It'd look great on your car...

    Re: A couple new mods

    me too...

    WOW!! Look how much heavier the stock tips are the way they are weighing down the car on that side

    Re: A couple new mods

    GT2 skirts are VERY subtle! Wouldn't have been able to tell if no one mentioned it!

    Then again, I haven't been following the 997s with that much serious attention to detail

    Re: A couple new mods

    Stunning.

    Re: A couple new mods

    The tips look so much better. Love the skirts too; very subtle, yet a nice touch. With the wheels, the package looks far better than stock to me.

    Re: A couple new mods

    atomic80, other than the lips, did U paint the inside as well? look little blue in the picture.

    haha, both literally and figurly ...

    nice mods atomic, but I still think the all-red-taillights looked better but yeah...

    Re: A couple new mods

    Here are some pictures from today





    Re: A couple new mods

    Looking mighty fine man

    Re: A couple new mods

    Jason...didn't you have black quad tips?

    Re: A couple new mods

    Justin, I had those a while back but they got ruined when some dirt got "baked" onto them. Off they went back to stock for a while.

    Nice Jason! I have those techart tips too but they got completely discoloured within 5k miles of hard driving.. If I remember correctly it was after my first track day that I noticed this..
    On another note, Jason are those GT3rs wheels lighter than the turbos? And if yes how much?

    Re: A couple new mods

    That's too bad that the Techart tips are still subject to discoloration. I'll keep an eye on them and report back.

    The RS wheels are not lighter than the stock wheels. They're actually a tiny bit heavier.

    Those are the best looking tips for the TT except for the fake second outlet which is why I didn't get them. too bad, they look so good otherwise.

    Techart tips look great...on a per outlet price probably the most expensive - pay for 4 only get 2.

    yea i was going to ask if only 2 of the outlets were actually functional... what a shame for such a gorgeous set of tips

    Re: A couple new mods

    Jason, In general I love the mods you have done to your car, but for me, the tips would definately be a no-go. The quad tips with only two functional look so tacky.Looks like I'll have to back-up all the pics of your car that I have with the nice tips still on it, to be sure I don't loose them!

    Re: A couple new mods

    Joost, I still have the stock tips and they're easy enough to swap out so I may change them back and forth depending on my thoughts/feelings that day.

    I did think about punching out the fake black section so it at least looks a little more "real" that way. Another member did that and it looks better I think.

    Re: A couple new mods

    Hi Atomic,

    the car looks fantastic with the mods done. I actually like the stock tips as they compliment the shape they protrude through. If that shape was different then other tip otions might look better.

    Congratulations.

    Rgds.

    Re: A couple new mods

    Hey Jason,

    Looks great I love the GT2 side skirts, they fit your car really really well! lovely exotic pics too btw!

    Re: A couple new mods

    atomic can you tell me again where you got that license plate holder? Dont mean to copy you but that plate holder is perfect.

    Uhh....I think I got it from my local Land Rover dealership. Call around and see if anyone has a matte black frame without anything on it. I don't think you'll have too much trouble finding one.

    Re: A couple new mods

    I found this which probably would be perfect for you.
