    beautiful!, just one question do you have to remove the wheels to put the porsche collored chrests ?



    The caps have a pair of holes. Porsche makes a tool that you insert into the holes and lets you pull out the crests w/o removing the wheels. Apparently you can fashion the same tool out of a wire coat hangar

    You can use the tool to pull out the old caps, then just snap the new ones on

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    thanks , that's a very goog news

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    Those are some clean wheels GA997S, I hope I keep mine that clean!

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    Awesome, DILINGER!

    You made the very same changes I would've made! Love the S wheels and PSE!

    You can't stop DILINGER when he starts to snap pics- you can only hope to contain him! Very nice shots!

    one more extra obtained when i originally bought the car....:)



    I think this came standard with the 964 for example, didn't know they still produce it.

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    hi guys thank you very much , i m glad you liked the pictures and had a good time,
    the questions are too much and i ll try to answer


    1) Tom yes many stone chips and a damage in the rear of the front wheel-not the wheel- but the side skirt from a stone..
    I will repair the hood in Meguiar's with some paint i bought from porsche along with lackeur, they say they will make them disapear. I do a lot of high speed driving and cant avoid stone chips so after i repair everything i ll install an invisible bra..
    PS please tell me which meguiars product you used for PSE

    2)meaker thats the triangle for accidents...standard equip.

    3)wangt1015 ,yes sports chrono is not retrofittable.However if its not equiped with sports chrono,yes a separate button is installed

    4)colored chrest require 2 minuts at your dealer for instalation just make sure they get alligned with the valve caps..

    5)Rossi i find it very useful because if those wheels loose air pressure they will instantly damage the wheels,and we dont want that Plus its an accurate instrument...

    6)pexar pm me for additional info plus phone number etc..

    Glad you liked the pictures guys

    It certainly is. I was asking, because I got the same one, but I got it a couple of years ago. But in the meantime, it's no longer in the Porsche but travelling in the red car...

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    oh....!!the red car

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    TOM,
    please tell me which meguiars product you used to clean and shine your PSE

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    Once I'm back home I'll will have a look and report.

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    just a small report on Porsche's car care kit...


    it cost me around 120 euro the exterior care kit
    and the interior cost me around 60 euro

    look what you get with less than that !!

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    now i dont want to get blammed for advertising
    but i thought i should inform some members that were interested on Porsche care kit

    that its a rip off!!

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    Thanks dilinger

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    oh and i found also

    meguiars....forum!!
    tons of information....check

    http://meguiarsonline.com/forums/


    happy shining

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    btw how much do you pay for meguiars products?

    i think they either did a mistake in their web or
    they rip us off in Greece


    Tech wax is 32 Euro
    while all metal polish is 14Euro

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    Beautiful Dilinger! I love it.

    How's the ride and handling with the 19's compared to the 18's?

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    SB, its not much harder, i would say its enough hard to make the PASM in the normal mode feel solid and rigid...


    All other characteristics changed are for the best...
    A little more heavier steering which i love,. better feel from the front wheels better feeling during understeer, and generally at sporty driving in corners, you got the feeling that the car is better controlled...


    I would say, that some small percentage ,of aggresiveness through spontaneous, gas pedal kicks ,is affected...


    But this is not a problem as the car has the tickle of sport chrono

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    Sorry Dilinger for late reply, but I was travelling.

    The stuff is called 'All Metal Polish' and is from Meguiars.

    brgds, Tom

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    thanx TOM already found it...seems there are 2 all metal polish the old the NXT generation

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.

    Dilinger, I've got the old one. It's in a light brown can.
    It removes all residues so that my tips look like new.

    Re: Upgrading my 997....and some options.
