    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    I have put Xpel all over the car. I hate getting paint chips and I know I will get them because I will track a lot.
    I also chosen white because it is easy to repaint - so why bother with protection film at all?
    It is for piece of mind you could say.


    The irony of the film is that if you have a small dent on the front bumper for instance then the film might be more expensive to replace then repainting the bumper.

     

     


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Why is that? Is it 500e just to do one bumper?

    Exactly as I felt. Aster film on my cars for 15 years I decided not to bother with the 991 GT3 two years ago when I picked it up. Glad I didnt bother. Th film on the rear guards from the factory went yellow within 3 months of new and the after market quality film I replaced that with ais also already looking slightly off colour. The stone chips I have picked up in 14,000km and 12 track days dont show much at all because under the white paint is a white primer coat. Im very happy with how it looks after all that time and use.

    You will find the titanium panted front mesh chips after each track day bit its easy to touch up. The wheels gets chipped very easily indeed on the track or on back roads with loose stone.

    "Tyre marble marks" rub off the painted steel surfaces very easily indeed compared to the clear film surfaces (as I found with my 993 RS spec after a big track day). 

    Last car I got covered in film someone backed into the bumper the say after before and I paid for film+paint and it cost twoce as much.

    All of thats every RS Ive seen delivered in New Zealand has been covered in film by the first owner. None of them are track junkies and I guess it will be a collectors car to fast to be seriously used so the film is to protect an investment. God I had that whole thought tho. Hats off to Kobolt, TrakCar (Peter) and others on here like Gnil, Whoopsey etc who actually intend to use the car for its intended purpose. Its really getting rather silly these days isnt it!

    Of course prices vary, but, yes it can cost that.

    This thread needs more White. So before I convert to Lava  devil here's some more pictures:

     

     

     

    Wow those are great ! I didn't even know the white from the RS was metallic, I thought it was flat white. 


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    It is just white but the combination of the early  sun, moist and paint protection film gave those pictures.

    Do you know whether it's possible to get a cage in body color on a GT-silver car? I assume it is as it is possible for Lava and white...

    As far als I have understood not as a standard option. You can choose Porsche exclusive, but this isn't the best idea. To pull out the cage they have to do a lot of work. So it would be extremely expensive.

    Thanks for the response. So on Lava and White it's a standard option and for silver it's Exclusive? Not always easy to find the logic at Porsche. Smiley

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Brought my RS in for the recall, had the car measured. Porsche did in fact set the ride height incorrectly.

    My front is actually 7mm too high and my rear is 4mm too low. 

    I looked at the tech and said forget it, not adjusting it, that tiny difference I can live with for the time being.

    Do you have a copy of the setup?

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Porsche recommended 

    pup to 500 km max 4000 rpm

    from 500 till 1500 km continuously increase up to 7500 rpm

    from 1500 km do what you wanna do

    One more info, for all of you dreaming getting a better engine. The interval for the engines is -0% up to +3%! So if the test results in 3.01% more HP the engine will fail and will go back!

    That I don't, the car was checked against the factory spec, wasn't doing track alignment.

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Today I had the unique opportunity to drive both the Nordschleife and the Südschleife.

    Südschleife was part of the Ring but it was destroyed when the new GP-track was build.
