    brief report of 987 2.7L

    Been driving my new 987 2.7 for 2 wks now
    1200 km so far. my initial impressions (driven 986 + Mini S)
    - a bit more kick after 4k rpm then 986. tho not much difference overall.
    - sounds a whole lot beefier- esp in undercover carparks.
    - quality streets ahead
    - PSM actually works! saved me 2x at roundabouts.
    - handling faultless. too much grip for its own good.... tried to get the rear end out, only had one successful attempt (PSM off + wet road + 1st gear)
    - gearbox is the best yet from Porsche, even w/o short shifter, the throws are short enough for me.
    - sport seats+ heating r just superb
    - PCM cool, tho not using it much. much makes the dash a lot nicer driving at nite. impresses the chics as well. thats worth the money alone!
    - Sound Package seems to sound better than the SP in 986
    - ultimate Porsche experience for a bargain price!

    Negatives
    - sometimes difficult to shift into 1st when cold. It seems to shop short between 1st and 3rd gear. had to re-engage clutch and try again.
    - rattles in centre console, very f*** annoying.
    - Speed yellow attracts too much attention when parked @ dodgy areas.
    - still dont like the round a/con vents. the 911 dash is much nicer.
    - lack of top end power when u really wanna hv fun in the twisties...

    Overall, a satisfied customer. For city driving, the base 2.7L seems adequate. (i use it as a work car).

    for those who are still thinking between a well specced 2.7L vs a poverty pack 987S. my opinion is the base is good enough if u use it for city driving, just load it up with creature-comfort options and u wont regret it.

    Re: brief report of 987 2.7L

    God bless you..i just got a fully loaded 987 ..and was wondering if i had done the right choice against a poverty S.

    Re: brief report of 987 2.7L

    Derder, When you add a post either
    a) click/mark "Preview reply" on the left in the "options" box or
    b) click "quote on your right in the grey line above the post you wanna reply to.
    Then your WRITE your answer, THEN click "CONTINUE" in the bottom, THEN u get a chance to add a picture from a file on your PC.
    Simply press "choose file" (or whatever it says in that button in your language) and then navigate to the drive and folder where your file/picture is stored, press CHOOSE, and VOILA!
    Remember to keep the pics below 300 K.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: brief report of 987 2.7L

    Additional to what the super-clever Danish stud has said, you need to resize your pictures down to an acceptable size. Assuming you have Adobe Photoshop, open the picture in photoshop, go to "image" "resize" and change the pixel dimensions to about 600 x 450. Save that, exit photoshop, then use the resized picture as per above.

    Hmm, a Porsche as a city car... if within budget I would alwasy go for the S. The Boxster needs this extra power desperately!
