    God I love my 997 :!

    I just felt like sharing some pics with ya all








    I'm going to have to lower it. It just doesn't look right being that high up. Other than that the car is just freaking FANTASTIC!





    Bonus pic!

    Good boy Yogi!

    Ditto! Love the Arctic Silver! Beauty!
    Yeah, it could be lowered a bit- not that it doesn't already look great. I would probably leave it as is.

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Niiiiice. Help me: I can't get enough of 'em.

    Why lower it? I think I get enough attention with my stock suspension everytime the bottom scrapes (brake vents?) when I go up a ramp. Ya know?

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Agree, MMD! It looks great as is, and no worries of scraping!

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    I love that bonus pic! ... I just love animals

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    After learning of all of your angst awaiting the baby, I'm sure I know the answer to the question: "Was she worth the wait?!"

    And nice canine, as well.

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Beautiful - i really like the relative chunkiness of the 18s.

    Glad to see you've thought about extra security too - woof !

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Nice.:)
    Is it an artic silver or Silver GT?
    Have you other photos?(in the street)

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Sweet ride....

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Nice pics.....cool use of the track lighitng in the garage as well.

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    More pics! More!

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Is it too soon to call the 997 an instant classic? Maybe I'm being a might effusive but I just can't get enough of these beauty shots, at any angle. The car, your car, is gorgeous!

    True, sato! And of course, they look even better in person!

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    lol, i know EXACTLY what you are feeling there man! I just spend the whole day washing and waxing my pcar, I'm so in love.

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Beautiful car, beautiful color, enjoy!

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    I think those exhaust tips look much better than the PSE tips, they always look cocked with the big tip small tip thing.

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Silver-Rules!!! classics are hot

    Arctic right?

    and oh loose the dealer plates.

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Why can't I get enough of this car? I mean, I have one but I just love looking at other people's 997.

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Share as many as you want!

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Beautiful!

    How about one with the gas lid open?

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Nice car dude! I am so glad to see people appreciating what they have. I have bought 5 Porsche's from Newport Auto Center. My 06 997S now has 500 miles on it as I am never home, but Partick my buddy at the dealer took care of me as always.. We will be passing each other soon, either on PCH or 73 or Starbucks in Corona Del Mar, I am these a lot with my car always parked in the front

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Thanks for all the compliments everyone, Yogi wags his tail in thanks as well



    Did someone request more pics??! Ok, ask and you shall receive. I hope you all don't mind me indulging a bit



















    ........Aaaand I'm spent.

    Al Pettee - Lol! Lets put it this way- any opportunity to go for a drive, any excuse I can find to check my car in the parking lot at work I do it. And every evening I go into the garage and spend a 'private' moment with my 997, usually bursting into 'happy dance' before retiring for the evening (yes, sick aren't I?)


    I've gone from this: AND just agonizing over its arrival, to:

    This
    This
    This
    And this

    So yes, well worth the wait!!

    Yes Arctic Silver/Black - traditiional I know, but I've always wanted this combo since the first time I saw it. Stunning to my eyes. I also thought it was the right choice for my 1st P-car.
    My NEXT P will be less conservative
    Oh yes- dealer plates are off the car already!







    Oh and thanks for re-assuring me about the ride height, I really am going to give it some more thought. I guess I want it both ways- improved looks w/o sacrificing clearance



    GOD I LOVE MY 997!!

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Sounds like you have "Happy Feet"!
    And well you should!
    Enjoy.

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Great shots- thank you!

    Again, I say keep your baby as is! It looks great/ beautiful!
    Where's Yogi?

    BTW, the bottom (point) of your wheel crest should point to the valve stem.

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    You forgot to post more Yogi shots for us dog and 997 lovers!

    More Yogi shots soon!

    Thanks for reminding me about those crests; there's a special tool I need to use to remove those, yes?

    I think you can use a paper clip, just bend it out to make a hook that will fit in a hole in the cap - not 100% as I haven't added some to mine yet. A good xmas present perhaps? Any kind Rennteamer want to buy me some coloured centres?

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    coat hanger

    Re: God I love my 997 :!

    Aha- ok thanks!

    So, it unscrews counter-clockwise I'm assuming?
