    Congrats! and nicely spec'd

    Re: My 997S has arrived & the quality of the product is amaz

    Thanks Carlos.
    The only thing that was missing of the spec for me was the sports exhaust (not ava yet). However, the car sounds so good as is. Last night, coming out of my garage, the car was so loud I thought I was going to wake up half the neighborhood with the stock exchaust. I am now having second thoughts about retrofitting it.

    Re: My 997S has arrived & the quality of the product is amaz

    The 997S is supposed to sound sportier already so for some cases the sport exhaust may be too loud, but remember that the PSE has a swicth that turns it to quite mode when you want to, like when in your neiborhood at night. So that would help.

    Re: My 997S has arrived & the quality of the product is amaz

    congratulations on the new car, whats your opinion on the short shifter ?

    Re: My 997S has arrived & the quality of the product is amaz

    Re: My 997S has arrived & the quality of the product is amaz

    Re: My 997S has arrived & the quality of the product is amaz

    Congratulations. Can you give us your comments on the short shifter? Also, if you can, pictures of the short shifter? I'm thinking of a retrofit for my 997S.

    Congratulations and thanks for the positives.
    Great spec. I've ordered the same colours and almost the same options.
    ENJOY
    Please post some pics

    Re: My 997S has arrived & the quality of the product is amaz

    wow, you have to post pictures... i wonder what red seat belts looks like

    Re: My 997S has arrived & the quality of the product is amaz

    Thanks for your posts.

    Carlos: Yes, the switch on the PSE will be a good solution for the problem(at night in particular). I am so satisfied with the sound of the stock exhaust. Very entertaining. I think that people that have immanent build dates and are not going to be able to have the PSE will not be too disappointed with what they will get.

    Stone: Regarding the short shifter. It feels great. I did feel it needed a tiny bit more pressure in first gear than the standard shift (or it could be my style of driving. It is my first day in the car after all), but otherwise it is precise, quick, and enjoyable!

    Pourscha: I will post pictures, just give me a little time to prepare them.

    SoCal Alan: I will take pics of the short shifter for you. I could have sworn the actual stick itself is slightly shorter than the stock one, but I may be imagining things.

    Med: Best of luck with your forthcoming car. The colour combo and options worked for me and I am sure you will be more than pleased with your choice. I will be posting pics.

    AnderwSS: Colour is very personal thing. They red belts are "a bit of fun" for me. I wanted to break up the colour of interior a bit, and that is exactly what they did. They also work well with the red calipers. No regrets.

    One other thing, I have been driving around town today (London). So much has been written about the lack of change in the car's exterior, yet in a single day, I had 3 people come over and comment positively about the cars looks. It is surprising how people have noticed the car, despite the subtle changes

    Congrats P_Nut. I wanted the sport exhaust on my 997S that I took delivery of in November but was not available yet. I too am extremely pleased with the stock exhaust sound.

    I also got the sport shifter and absolutely love it. This would be the one option I would not want to be without now that I have put 1800 miles on it. It does start to loosen up a bit more for going into 1st when cold.

    I think people still notice the 997 is new despite the subtle changes. I came out from work the other day to find someone snapping photos of my ride.

    Re: My 997S has arrived & the quality of the product is amaz

    Congratulations P_Nut. Hoping for pictures soon.:)

    Re: My 997S has arrived & the quality of the product is amaz

    Mark997S: Agreed, the stock exhaust on the 997S really is great. I am looking forward to using my short shift on a daily basis. It works extremely well and I , like you, would recommend it to all future 997 owners. Hope you are enjoying your car.
