    Also, I'm sure the RS isn't much louder than the .2GT3 and I don't have a problem.

    if RS has single mass flywheel like my 997RS, then the inside cabin noise is much much louder than your current GT3 

    double mass flywheel for the new 4.0L... no SMFW anymore!Smiley

    It' s a pity  Smiley  I love the noises of the single mass flywheel . So entertaining when driving slowly . Makes it an event .

    I guess most people complained about it . They want a car that sounds  ''smooth and perfect'', not those mechanical rattles ......

    Yes, i remember now .  But , according to reviews , the .2 RS has lost all these rattle / mechanical noises at low speed , that sound like a single mass flywheel

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Thanks Dave. GT Silver with Satin Black Wheels. Expecting delivery in July. Should find out exactly when in the next few days. The lizard green looks awesome with the black wheels with or without the pinstripe. Saw it at the Geneva show back in March. Going with the classy GT silver, love that colour and the subtle changes it has in different lighting.

    Fingers crossed for you that there is a second batch and you get your allocation.

    I asked Manthey Racing for an alignment on my incoming RS.2 .

    This is the answer I got . What do you think ? Anyone aware of this ? :

     

    As the GT3 RS 991.2 also might cause problems with touching wheels in the arches, we would recommend to go for our upgrade package for the standard suspension.

    With this package, we do install some parts on the front in order to modify the camber situation and shock travel.

    Some others did , indeed !

    Thought it would not be the case on .2 , that's why I am a bit surprised with the comment from them

    sorry for polluting the RS.2 thread with RS.1 stuff.....just wanted to add that with my wife we did 1050km in the GT3RS.1 last friday, in one sweep (8 hours mainly highway). the trip was very comfy, no issues from vienna to central italy. no backpain, no earplugs needed.....i think i am going to postpone my BMW M5 plans.:::)))) ahhh yes, the only issue was a flashing sensation somewhere on the highway in carinthia. this will probably set me back 100 euros or so....seems i just cannot do a single trip without getting caught by a speed cam. grrrrrrrrrrrr.....

    50 years ago when my dad did that drive with the family there were no cameras. The passing was frightening though. I can imagine the drive. We made that drive many summers to the woertersee.

    So easy in Austria...you just need to slow down before those "boxes" on the right... Smiley

    I'm usually setting the cruise control to auto at 135 kph (or whatever the speed limit is plus 5 kph) and I'm good. Too much stress to be on a permanent lookout for radar traps.

    No earplugs? Good for you. Smiley I don't get that earplug thing (991.2 GT3 RS) either but... Smiley

    i'd actually love to read a comparison between the RS.1 and the RS.2 in terms of 'street-drivability/comfort' since reportedly the spring rates have been changed significantly on the .2


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I believe I read on RL that the ride of the .2 is A bit more harsh than the .1 but not significantly so.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    I haven't driven a Mk2 but I hear around 50% - surely to gain such a NBR time difference in the summary of it's parts it must be noticeably harsher. The jump from the Mk1 GT3 to MK1 RS was clearly noticeable and not just from it's wheel dims.

    well, that could already be too harsh for me. .1 is still ok, but the margin of comfort is small.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Not sure if this is known yet but it seems that those who didn't get a 991.2 GT3 RS without particulate filter, will have to wait until early 2019 for the next batch with particulate filter. Caution: This rumor may be valid for Europe only, I don't know about the US and/or other regions.

    What is also bad: Dealers don't know how many cars (second batch) will be produced, rumors indicate around 50% more than first batch. Also, dealers have no allocations, so the game starts again. I assume they will give their first allocations to customers who already have a confirmed allocation but weren't able to get one of the first batch.

    Oh boy, so complicated...
