    @Gnil:  You just can't escape tractors.  I try not to get too frustrated as they are just doing their jobs, but when it's on your favorite road, oh man...

    @ Carlos: Thanks man, enjoyed the trip home.


    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Nice pics of your trip kiss

    Very interesting - I’ve not seen much of that part of the US.

    thanks for sharing ! nice pics !


    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Thanks Dave, Enmanuel.  Wish I would have had the time to stop and take some nicer pics.  I missed a lot of beautiful /interesting scenery.  Next time I'll schedule my time a little better to allow for stops.

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Well since I'm going to be saving money and doing the exhaust install myself (I think), decided to finally get a nice tool box to go with my Sonic tools.  Also for something more interesting, plan on documenting taking off the rear bumper (cover) to clean out the air filter next week.  Never done that before so seemed like good practice for the exhaust since that's the first step of getting to everything.  

    This particular toolbox was about 70% off, one small issue you may notice:

    Couldn't have that so bought some cheap black vinyl and got to wrapping:

    You may ask why I kept the skull symbol...well it's called "Jake" and since that's my nickname seemed fitting for it to stay on the tool box indecision

    Great job on the wrap ! Looking forward to you documenting the whole exhaust install. That should be very interesting.

    Nice, wish I had Snap-On, but Sonic is good enough for now.

    We had a cars and coffee today so took a couple pics of interesting cars (sorry for my shadow).  Click on pics for better resolution.

    That's awesome.  The engine bays of the older cars are so much more interesting than those today.  Mechanical works of art in many cases.  I spent a fair amount of the show talking to the owners of the two beetles.  They were beautifully maintained.

    They also own a Karmann Ghia which I would have loved to see.


    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Thanks for the photos . The red of the 911S is beautiful . so deep . Also love the Camaro . Proper muscle car !

    Well winter is upon us here in KY.  My GT3 will have a roommate for a couple months.  Keeping my buddy's DB9 volante in my garage.  Naturally had to wash it for him prior to storing it.  Will have an update soon with pics of detailing GT3's rear bumper after removing the Porsche badge and removing bumper to clean air filter.  So lots of photos coming soon.

    Smiley  Oh yes those damn leaves.  The wind was blowing a constant 30kph yesterday so anytime one of the doors was open the leaves would come rushing in.  My buddy had to laugh as I would sweep them out only to turn around and have twice the number come blowing right back in.  Mother nature 1 - Obsessed clean freak 0

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Been a while since posting, been putting off clear bra removal, polishing, and exhaust install until February / March on the GT3.  Just got sent this pic from my sales guy, my ideal spec and just so happens to be the school colors where my nephew signed to play lacrosse at university next year (purple and yellow)...maybe that's a sign I should get it.  What do you all think, worth the extra $$$ to upgrade?  Market seems to have softened on them with .2's being released.

    Disappointed that none of you have tried to talk me out of getting the RS...negotiations continue to go favorably.

    On a more serious note and I am definitely the wrong person to go into detail here, the engine is what matters and if I were in your position I would look into the recalls and related stuff to this engine... apart from that, if I had the budget, I would probably go for it ... nice color ...

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Love the colour too. Keep negotiating!


    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Recalls where on the GT3 , not the RS . Love it ! Go for it !!!!!

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    The .2 is simply a better motor. Makes the .1 less attractive to those who know best. Don’t buy it assuming people will not take that into account when it comes time to sell it. Agreed the RS .1 has a better reputation but it is not th same as the .2 motor which is a gem - so far. Also the 992 coming with n/a motor even hits the price of the .2 since it had been assumed to be the last.   Simply factor this into your offer and don’t look back either way.
