    Hey everybody. I've been hangin around here for a while, but this is my first post, and it comes with some really good news! I am the proud owner of an 06 997S given to me by my wife for my birthday. Needless to say, I have the coolest wife ever! I was in Italy on business for two weeks and upon my return there was a Black on Black shiny new porsche in front of the house! At first I thought it was some kind of joke, or mabey the neighbor (the drummer for the doors) had a new car. But no, this baby is mine! My wife had obviously been listening to my porsche ranting an raving that I have been annoying her with for years. She got all the options I wanted and none that I didn't. Here's the list:

    BOSE
    Sport chrono
    X51
    Nav
    Short shift
    Other small stuff

    She even said that she didn't load it up too much beacuse weight is the enemy of speed! How cool is that? Only options that make it faster and turn better! No PCCB's thought because she thought the yellow calipers were weird looking, and liked those "red ones" Ha Ha.

    Also, a quick question. I'm installing some FVD spacers tomorrow, and I was wondering if anyone new the torque specs for the wheel studs?

    That's all for now,

    Justin



    man, does she have a sister??!!?? very cool, send her my regards!

    Re: I have the coolest wife ever!

    Congrats 1978fj40!

    I am going to show this post to my wife tonight...

    You really don't want to block the center duct since the car came with the X51 option,--there is an active duct there. The mount system that uses the towing hole is pretty feeble if you ask me...

    Dan



    that is a good point Dan, I didnt think of that.
    still, i dont like the assymetric look of the plate on the tow hook.

    Re: I have the coolest wife ever!

    Sorry guys, my wife doesn't have a sister:( I went ahead and ordered the tow hook mount today, I'll let y'all know how it looks, and mabey get some pics up soon too. The X-51 is not on the car yet, but my wife had it included into the price, so now I'm waiting on SB Porsche to call me for the install. Anybody know if I have to go through the break in process again? Doubt it, but ya never know!

    Re: I have the coolest wife ever!

    Of course you do! What's the color of the car? I'll be on the lookout for you.

    Dan

    Re: I have the coolest wife ever!

    Does your wife have a sister?

    Re: I have the coolest wife ever!

    Dan L, the car is black on black with the lobster for rims. Great color on your car by the way! I would love to see that in person! And again, Sorry my wife doesn't have any siblings!

    Justin

    Re: I have the coolest wife ever!

    Justin,--will see you around town! Can't wait to hear the X51 when it is done. (I had to draw the line somewhere!)

    Dan

    Re: I have the coolest wife ever!

    I hear ya on the x-51! I probably wouldn't have done it myself because of the cost, but my wife is definately way cool having ordered it for me! I'll definately see you around! I'm mostly around Montecito, but when I'm up in SB, I'll keep a look out for that beautiful blue cab!

    Re: I have the coolest wife ever!

    I'm a cool wife...I bought my husband a Ferrari for his birthday last year....But he had to buy his own 997S!

    Re: I have the coolest wife ever!

    You are definately a cool wife. If you're ever in Calii, you cool wives can get together and be totaly cool!

    Re: I have the coolest wife ever!

    Can somebody open a post regarding cool wifes - I am still on the lookout...

    Anyways, beautiful car and beautiful story - enjoy the car! It is a likeable feature of your wife to choose the brakes by the colour - I believe you can live without them as well!
