    Re: Pics of my new 997S...

    And another...

    Re: Pics of my new 997S...

    The 18" CIII wheels and the new Continental Wintercontact 810S NO tires...

    Re: Pics of my new 997S...

    An amazing cobalt blue beauty on my dealers lot...

    Re: Pics of my new 997S...

    The Sea Blue interior...I apologize as my digicam is not correctly recording the color. It's a bit darker bluish-grey...

    Re: Pics of my new 997S...

    And the piece de resistance...the GT silver Carerra GT in the showroom...

    Re: Pics of my new 997S...

    I'm a little color blind, is that seal grey on your 997? Whatever color its nice. The cobalt blue is nice, stands out a bit much for me, but still cool. And I actually dont like the look of the GT, maybe just that angle but looks too chopped up.

    I used a wide angle lens on the C-GT shot. That is distorting it a bit.

    My color is GT silver.

    Sorry dude. I had the dealer swap out the wheels before I picked up the car. They're storing them for me. Sorry. But, wait a couple of months (spring thaw) and I'll have them!

    Re: Pics of my new 997S...

    Aaaah, but there's nothing like black! Took these shots today since the weather was excellent!

    Re: Pics of my new 997S...

    997 with Chrono, PASM, & 19 in wheels.

    Re: Pics of my new 997S...

    Wow!

    Re: Pics of my new 997S...
