    Other OPC's this is how you're supposed to do it! Customer service!



    I can just see it now - your new Official Porsche Centre - Arkwrights Not sure how you could convert the corner shop into a showroom, however. (Apologies to non UK Rennteamers who won't catch on to this). Caption to this picture "How many freebies did you give to that customer whose just driven off in that black Boxster?"

    Re: Thoughts on 4 days o 987 owenership

    Might be worth a trip overseas to get serviced, then, if they're that friendly! And you got a free car!
    (The car getting serviced, I mean. )

    Lovely car and great colour combi...
    Noticied that ur exhaust is similar to a 'S'... is that an option? Reason I am asking is my gf ordered a 987, similar to yours, and now she wants a 'S' twin exhausts....
    Cheers!

    That's the Stainless Steel tip. Option XLA.
    Can be retro-fitted if too late to change the order.

    Re: Thoughts on 4 days o 987 owenership

    I thought the 987 2.7's exhaust was a single tube rather than a twin... therefore I assumed that the stainless steel option would be similar to the origion shape.... but i see that JZ's 2.7 had twin exhaust? so does one have the twin exhaust look if one orders the option u mentioned...

    Cheers boothy

    Re: Thoughts on 4 days o 987 owenership

    The optional sports tailpipe that I have comes in the S style irrespective of your choice of car. It is slightly larger than the S stock exhaust and a bit more flared around the edges. It is really easy to keep clean and really finishes off the car. Had I ordered an S, I still would have ordered the sports tailpipe.

    Cheers,

    JZ

    Yup, I agree, I would have done the same.

    Both exhausts come out the same size single pipe as far as I am aware - it's just the tip that's different between the two models. It's a simple bolt-off, bolt-on fit.

    Re: Thoughts on 4 days o 987 owenership

    Woohoo,

    such a great car! Congrats and enjoy the car. Sounds good as well that the Belfast dealership is such a nice one to deal with. Is it the same company that runs the Volkswagen/Audi dealerships in Belfast?

    Just curious, do you park your car on the streets in London?

    Re: Thoughts on 4 days o 987 owenership

    Cheers for input JZ and boothy....
    I will let my gf know the good news...Does anyone know how much it cost to retrofit this on? As her car is due for Oct delivery I am sure it is 2 late to add this onto her car now....

    Re: Thoughts on 4 days o 987 owenership

    Order it through tequipment at your dealer if they will install it for free. It literally takes about 10 minutes to undo a single 15mm bolt and reattach the new tip. This is something you could install yourself if you have the will to do it.

    WOW! I rarely see such enthusiasm for any car. I am envious. Enjoy it in good health.

    Re: Thoughts on 4 days o 987 owenership

    Congratulations JZ, beautiful car!! Enjoy it in good health. I cannot wait for mine; it'll be a long couple of months!

    Re: Thoughts on 4 days o 987 owenership

    Thanks guys, I really appreciate the positive comments. So far so good with the car, although the smear up the middle of the window is you put it down is very frustrating!!

    Does it ever go away??

    JZ
