    Tourist delivery eh? how was europe?

    interesting 'redecorations' on your neighbor's yard.

    Re: One More Photo

    Congrats I love your rims very nice. Felt bad for the neighbor though they TP'd the house .

    Re: One More Photo

    Beautiful.

    Re: One More Photo

    Peterd, congrats! Very nice cars.
    IMO the best looking rims for the 997 currently, gives it an aggrive look, perfect!
    Could you post a shot of the interior please?
    I'm curious about what it the aluminium pck you mention. Thanks.

    Re: One More Photo

    Very nice, I like the wheels

    Re: One More Photo

    Congrats!
    ... interesting thing is the sport design wheels are not my favorite but looking at the picturs they seem to change when combined with silver as you did, they look nice thta way

    Re: Picked it up today, finally

    That's a great looking car. Congratulations!

    Re: Picked it up today, finally

    Congrats, the wheels really give a special glamour to the 997.

    Re: Picked it up today, finally

    Wheels look sharp! Have fun.

    Re: Picked it up today, finally

    nice spec, go drive!

    Re: Picked it up today, finally

    That is a sweet combo! I love the CGT silver.

    Re: Picked it up today, finally

    WHat a car! i just love the SportDesign wheels, the make the car look even hotter! Gratz on the Beauty

    Re: Picked it up today, finally

    Could you post pics of the natural grey leather. Not seen before. Thanks and Congrats on your car!

    Re: Picked it up today, finally

    Congratulations on a beautiful new car. I previously disliked the look of the sport wheels, but they really look stunning on your car, great choice. Enjoy

    Panel colors mismatched?

    Pardon me, but I simply must wonder, does the color of the bumpers exactly match the body panels in real life, or is it the photos?

    Especially in the side view (bottom photo) the back bumper looks darker and cooler than the fender.

    I hope it's a digitalization issue and not a reality.

    Re: Picked it up today, finally

    Congratulations, thats a fine looking car. I'm a fan of the silver/grey leather combination - it'd be great to see some interior shots. There's a Seal Grey S waiting for it's owner at my dealer with the same wheels. I think your colour looks better!!

    Re: Picked it up today, finally

    What a great looking car! I'm SO glad I ordered GT silver. Almost with with the natural grey, but at the last minute changed to sea blue...

    I noticed that too. I do not think it is the camera. It is there, the camera may have exacerbated the difference.

    I've seen this before in many different cars. The bumper is plastic and the body is steel and I think that different colors show differently when sprayed on different substrates, unless... they made a mistake and painted the rear bumper w/ a different color (shipping damage, perhaps?).

    Good observation but you're both, well.....

    Look at the top picture, what do you see very close to the rear of the vehicle? Perhaps a blue car? It's amazing as dirty as my car was how much reflectivity the paint has. The angle of the rear fascia is positioned to reflect the color of my wife's CLK500 Cab on the lower part while the upper part is true.

    Re: Good observation but you're both, well.....

    Beautiful car for a beautiful neighborhood. Congratulations, Peter!

    Re: Picked it up today, finally

    Congratulations - she's a beauty. Enjoy!

    Wow. I've since been checking this out in other Carerra pictures. It's perplexing since even some of Porsche's official pictures show this disparity in color. What the heck is going on?

    Re: Picked it up today, finally

    Stunning! Came across your post an hour ago and can't stop staring. Somehow missed it when you first posted. The exterior-color/wheel combo are perfect. Natural brown leather will be my choice. Have you posted additional pictures?
