    Great looking car!!!  Love the GT3 like front and wide body without the wing on the back!  And the color of the wheels - pure sex!

    Thanks a lot! Smiley Yes, the aggressive front in combination with the wide wing-less rear is great. The car looks super low and wide in real. Ok, I need to sleep now... Smiley

    Delivered, driven and now asleep in the garage. In short, it is awesome. I will type up a more detailed report once I have put a few km on the clock.

    Re: Dark Blue Metallic Carrera 4S

    What a great find, car looks stunning on this configuration and and I love the "kind of" GT3 front without the rear wing, maybe one of the best looking 991 around, congrats Smiley

    Re: Dark Blue Metallic Carrera 4S

    @bluelines: does the aerokit front give any ground clearance issues on ramps etc?

    It is good that the front is allowed to fitted without the rear ducktail.

    Dark Blue Carrera is generally an underrated choice, but it looks fantastic kiss

    Yes, it is great that the front is allowed without the rear spoiler. I believe the rear spoiler is raised higher with the -20mm and/or the SportDesign front. That is probably why it is now allowed, but was not previously on the 997.

    As a consecuence of the increased wheelbase in the 991 vs the 997, the overhangs have been reduced in the 991 so that must help.

    +1 Smiley Indeed, I think this is the reason. The front is lower, but the angle of approach similar.

    I went down Hyatt with the RS many times - although I have a lift-system - so you should be fine ! Best parking there in zurich for me

    Yes, definitely best parking in Zurich for me too. Easy to reach and the office is around the corner (not that I ever drive, but anyways).

    Re: Dark Blue Metallic Carrera 4S

    Meanwhile, I have driven over 1'000 kilometres with the new blue baby. Yesterday we had a beautiful spring day and I shot this photo during a short drive along the hills above Lake Zürich. It still amazes me how much quicker, more agile and better handling the 991 is over the 997. It feels like everything works in perfect harmony, the engine, the all-wheel drive, the suspension and the transmission. An engineering masterpiece kiss

    I often find myself engaging Sport Plus and switching the PDK gear lever into manual. Then shift manually with the paddles. Never did gear shifting feel this enjoyable and rewarding. It is immediate, precise and engaging. It is like you think "shift" and it slams in the next gear under full power. The H-pattern manual shifter and clutch pedal feels hopelessly ancient, boring and retarded. It would spoil the entire experience. Note, before the manualists chop my head off, I would not declare the manual dead, but in such a car it no longer belongs. I do however want my future 964 RS with manual indecision

    It is a head-turner too. Never had so much attention as with this blue 991 angry

    Enjoy and tschüssli!

    No issue whatsoever with the SportDesign front spoiler. I never scraped it once. Did lots of speed bumps, parking garages, etc. Including the ones that scraped my previous 997.2 with -20mm and normal front Smiley So the 991 is lower and it scrapes less. I like it Smiley

    Here's a good youtube video from a 6Speed/Rennlist member, that very well explains how the system works.
    He has done some other good videos as well. Unfortunately he has had some trouble with his car, but that's a different  subject.

    Yes, the adaptive cruise control... I used it exactly zero times Smiley It is not an option that I would have chosen myself, but it was there already. Some day I will try it. When I got bored of playing with all the other options.

    I only noticed the little yellow warning sign coming on a few times when driving too close to the car in front. This happens even if the cruise control is not on. Useful? Or useless?

    But the camera lens looks cool, doesn't it? Like a target seeker for a missile launcher atomic.gif

    When you push that red button in the center console, the headlights flip open and then your missiles get armed for the launch. The crosshair shows up at your PCM and you use the extra stalk behind the steering wheel as a joystick for aiming...... If target is locked, just push the red button again to fire! Smiley

    Thank you Suzy,  I guess it is not the highlight of a 911 but a useful option nonetheless (I have it on my Audi S4 and it is an important safety feature).
