    Thanks!!




    escobar what do you mean "bended" that its gets destroyed??

    Re: my 997S with painted wheels

    Looks great Sergini - I would have liked it even more if you left the ring around the rim in Silver to break the all black effect but nonetheless, it looks very nice and agressive. Congrats

    Re: my 997S with painted wheels

    Sergini,

    please provide me some details.

    1) WHAT is this small sticker in the middle of the front spoiler?

    2) HOW can i get this plate holder shipped to greece or buy it through the net?

    3) WHERE can i fond throught the net this middle front spoiler grille??


    I knoe 1 company who makes them for 997, and also makes for the side air intakes the same grilles,

    i think it looks so nice, BUT yet it the dilemma, what color to install,

    my car is an Arctic and been wondering whether to put the grille in silver or blsck color to make a contrast!!!

    Re: my 997S with painted wheels

    Dilinger, the cooling element does not get destroyed.

    But because of the wind and bugs I guess, the little cooling blades get pushed down a bit in some parts of the cooling element.
    Because of this, the surface of the cooling element is not "even" anymore.

    See picture in attachment.

    Re: my 997S with painted wheels

    Sergini....
    You should adjust your painted wheel center caps so the bottom of the crests point at your valve stems

    Re: my 997S with painted wheels

    JP66 ..I know that the Porsche emblem have to "see" the valves ..but I like them in random position ...too many years that my crests the prefect ...I want to trasgredee .....lol .

    Dirlinger :
    1) the sticker is Manthey Racing logo, a great Porsche tuner in Germany (1 km far to the ring ,a lot of porsche that visit the ring have this stiker .
    2) for the plateholder see here http://www.orciari.it/ hope they can send it in greece ,if not invite me in Santorini for a weekend ,and i'll bring with me ...
    if u need ..no problem i can send it to you ,it costs about 25 euro ...
    3) last winther in autobahn I broke a radiator due a stone ! so i buy a painted black grill (foliatech or simoniracing) it costs 30 euro ,u must go to ur garage because you need to desmont the front bumper . Cargraphic produce this grill and cut it for 997 ..but it costs 200 euro ...170 euro to cut grill? eheh!
    i prefer them in black they are invisble and only car fanatics can see the difference .....


    and yes ..i painted in black the headlight"sprayers" !

    ciaoo!

    Magu ...maybe ....but don't tell to RC ...



    Great looking wheels, I like black wheels a lot, I had them on my 996 TT and I wanted to get them on my 997 CS too as soon as the tires are worn out. But since the winter is coming soon and since I'm going for a 997 Turbo S (or whatever comes into my mind... ), it doesn't make much sense anymore to get the wheels painted.

    Regarding the "don't tell RC...", are you planning to get a F430? It is a great car but when the 997 Turbo or even Turbo S shows up, you may regret it.

    Re: my 997S with painted wheels

    no! Rc .....
    today a bird told me that the new 997 Turbo run faster 6 or more seconds of F430 ....at Nurburgring ....so the Gt3 will run 5 secs ...imho.

    I born loving Porsche and I continue to love them ......

    i'm sure for 997 Gt3 Clubsport ,Silver GT ,matt black wheels ,full roll cage and fire extinguish! lol ...

    Re: my 997S with painted wheels

    what?????
    and F430 which time made????
    will be faster the 997 GT3 or 997 turbo????
