    Any specific reason why the shell is different in NA?

     

    Specifically to dissuade people from using the factory cage

    What's wrong with the factory cage for the US auto law makers ? 

    US lawmakers do not take it as a given that car occupants will be wearing seat belts, in which case a cage could potentially be an additional source of injuries.

    Come on. This getting old. There are plenty more crazy laws on the books in Germany and we don't focus blame on obscure stuff. Sometimes I wonder about the stories European media fed the masses. I used to think I would get shot by Indian arrows when I moved here from Austria at 12 years old.  Maybe you need to live here for a bit and then you would be amazed how so much of what you think is true about the US simply is not.  BTW is was born in Germany. 

    Don't take it personal . This law is pretty dumb, you ' ve got to admit that . Dumb laws are in every country , no one is saying it is only in the US . Europe has as many .

    I friend move to Miami aout 3 years ago, started his own business there . He was actually surprised at how many things  ( administration, laws , work quality  ) are worse then then what he was expecting  . Others are better ( more open, easier to start businesses etc... ) , but it is by far not a one much better then the other .

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Looks like a GT3RS without the rear wing. Seems to replaced it with an after market duck tail requiring the back slots to be changed as well.

    No that's just the stock engine cover without the wing. You can see the bolt holes on the side

    Maybe the owner forgot to secure the wing with superglue. The RS is infamous for loosing body parts at higher speeds smiley

    Many think that because the US seems to be the birthplace of capitalism, everything related to business is nice and easy and without much bureaucracy. Wrong! They sometimes have the worst bureaucracy ever but with the right lawyer and valuable advice, you can get through it pretty well. 

    I had such "pink glasses" when I looked a Florida for the very first time, I thought it is paradise. Until the "horror" stories poured in about doing business there and especially how business is done. Won't even start with working morale and ethics... Smiley Hint: South America is right around the corner, if you get my point. Smiley

    Still...if you want to do business there, you just do it. You have to like it though and you need to forget about the "old" place, something mostly women usually have difficulties of doing. They want home...I get it but after five years or so, the worst is over (according to friends there...).

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Regarding rubbing in the front and back:

    There is a Service action: 28-16 (Workshop manual/4X00)

    As I understand it they check the wheel alignment so it is original.
    In the front they replace the liners with new liners that are modified with heat by the Porsche Workshop.
    The mesh in the front fenders are removed.

    In the rear the fenders are rolled to give more clearance. (FWIW: My dealer did not have the tools for that.)


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    So you have now no mesh in the front fender ? I thaught it had to be there for legal reasons.

    is this only for pre-2016 delivered cars or does it apply to all delivered RS' up to now?

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Gnil: I have the mesh installed but it will probably be removed by it self soon :-) (rubbed to pieces)

    Peter: I don't know. But: You need a fast track and most likely heavy compression to experience the rubbing. Maybe very heavy braking might rubb in the front.

    Here is how it looks on my car: You see a hole in the liner which exposes the side indicator. It looks like the wheel actually has rubbed on the indicator as well.

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    I don't think you can do that on a LO car . 

    Did you have your alignment changed or is it still stock ?

    They also add weight, which reduces ride height and results in the rubbing.  Smiley
