    Finally finalized order on 997S

    Hey guys,
    After trying to finalize the options on my 997S i have finally come to a conclusion on everything and this is how its going to look when I take delivery in May. This is the third time I changed my order but I can finally rest cause it has been finalized.

    Speed yellow
    Black leather interior
    Wheel center set
    Dimming mirrors
    Chrome tail pipes
    Heated seats
    Porsche crest embossed in head restraints
    Bose surround sound
    Sport Chrono Package

    It took me awhile to decide on the Sport chrono package but after looking into it and reading about it, it was just one of those options that is just a cool neat gadget to have some fun with. Anyone who has taken delivery on the vehicle have any comments or experience with the sport chrono package?

    Ciao

    Re: Finally finalized order on 997S

    good choice on the chrono, you would regret not buying it, and it is prohibitively expensive to retrofit, if not impossible.

    looks like you didn't miss any important options, i assume you got FULL Leather, because thats well worth it.

    Re: Finally finalized order on 997S

    The more i find out about sport chrono,the more i think its a MUST for the options lists!Nice to see someone order yellow - its a brave but good choice and different from the norm-congrats

    Re: Finally finalized order on 997S

    I look at it this way, I am buying the car to enjoy it and after looking at various photos and videos i think the 997S looks amazing in yellow. Plus I have owned too many cars in silver i would say the last 6 yrs all cars have been silver, it is just too much. I considered guards red for a long time but that is it i am set on the speed yellow. The sport chrono just looks really cool, i totally agree anyone who doesnt order it would probably regret it later on.

    Re: Finally finalized order on 997S

    Additionally I recommend Nav, adaptive sport seats and speed control. And the sports exhaust of course.

    Re: Finally finalized order on 997S

    I'd add the Sports Exhaust...and if you are tracking the car the adaptive sports seats.

    Re: Finally finalized order on 997S

    Nicely optioned. I strongly recommend sport exhaust (which, I believe, comes with chrome pipes, so you can delete those).

    Re: Finally finalized order on 997S

    sport exhaust is not availible yet.

    Re: Finally finalized order on 997S

    He's taking delivery in May. Sport exhaust is supposed to be available in early 2005.

    Re: Finally finalized order on 997S

    in that case, by all means order it

    sport exhuast is availible in january/feb 05, if your car is built in that time, it should be availible.

    however, it is not a MUST order option, as it can be retrofitted easily later, unlike sport chrono, bose, full leather...

    Re: Finally finalized order on 997S

    Correct me if i err..but was under the impression that the 997 engines came with the catalyst holder as part of the exhaust/muffler package....thus, retrofitting mufflers will be rather more expensive than with the 996

    Re: Finally finalized order on 997S

    im sure there will be a way and it will be official and not much more expensive than ordering the option (just like the 996)

    the tequipment sport exhaust is one of their best selling aftermarket parts, and porsche is all about profit

    Re: Finally finalized order on 997S

    really good choice for the color!
