    GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    What do you guys think of the GT3 nose fitted on the turbo ?
    Do you think it looks better ?

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    second picture

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    I'm not a fan of it at all...

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo



    NO!

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    Don't like it!! Why get rid of the nice lookin led turn-signals?

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    Personally I like the GT3 nose much better than the TT. It looks more aggressive.

    However I don't think switching front ends is a good idea.

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    look at this 997 turbo.gt3 nose&manthey wheels

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    That's a 997 TT front end with a hood vent. Not a GT3 nose.

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    To me it looks quite nice.My question is: can you fit it without any temperature issue?

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    The pics are too small to really tell. Different angles would help, specially seeing more of the side, but my first impression is that it gives it a more aggressive look, that works well too.

    yes sorry

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    I think the GT3 front is a bit overdone. If it weren't for the spoiler, I think I'd like the GT3 rear better though.

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    Why put a Gt3 nose on a Turbo?? Why would you you want it to look like it's lesser sibling?????

    I wouldn't really call it a lesser sibling when a GT3 is faster than a Turbo on a track...

    I love the look of both the GT3 and Turbo, but I don't think that GT3 front looks right on the Turbo. It needs the rest of the aero kit to look right, in my opinion.

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    Bigger pictures of a silver TT.
    But i think you guys are right, it looks kind of weird on the Turbo.

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    second picture of silver TT

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    It's funny, I love the GT3 nose on a GT3, it fits, but it looks wrong on the turbo. It needs the GT3 rear to balance it out.

    But, if it makes you happy.....

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    TT looks horrible in light silver anyway. They look great in slate/black if you want to hide some design features, or red/yellow for fun.

    Agreed with the other people out there though: the GT3 nose belongs on the GT3.

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    Looks better to me than the TT nose. Much more aggressiv and gos well with the rear spoiler

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    I like that nose

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    I like it, no offense but the TT in certain angles specially when in your rear view mirror resembels the Boxster S.

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    I like it alot, but the cost is prohibitive let alone what major bodywork does to your resale.

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    Hi and greetings from the UK. My 997 TT is Atlas grey and has the fron vent a la GT3 but the turbo front. Looks OK to me!

    Great forum, and lots to learn.

    Cheers

    Bob


    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    Is it functional? Looks great, but I'd still be concerned about resale with a irreversable mod like that

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    Negligable functionality, I expect, but it won't be for sale for some time!

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    I think I prefer the GT3 front.

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    i like gt3 nose on TT.

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo

    The overall look is not bad, but I suppose it just makes it very confusing, because that style is very much supposed to be reserved for the GT3.

    Re: GT3 nose fitted on Turbo
