    Listen carefully for rubbing noises from the rear wheels when you first drive the car very "dynamically" on hairpin bends and other tight corners, as the wider wheels may touch the inner mudguards in these conditions. It doesn't happen on the GT2 because the stiffer springs reduce suspension travel compared with the stock turbo.

    Re: new wheels are on...

    Love the car... and the environment

    Now, if  you just lower it by a few cm, it'll be perfect

    More pics please, I need some more white cars with Euro backgrounds for my collection.

    Re: new wheels are on...

    Fritz,before i had 5mm spacers with stock rims,and the tyres seems at the same "distance" from the mudguard that with this wheels(that i put on without spacers).

    Before i hear nothing,but maybe i never stress dynamically the car too much

     

    i will let you know something if and when it will happen

     

    p.s.More pics will comeSmiley

    Looking very good Dario! 

    These black rims are perfect, especially with the fine silver rim. Really great combo with your white Turbo!

    Ah I see. I couldn't identify in the pics above, but in the last pic you can clearly see. This decal does look great with the black rims and is a must IMO,  intouch should try this with his black rims for the X6M. Smiley

    Re: new wheels are on...

    It looks fantastic , so much more sporty.  Now you don't need to change the car anymore, it's like a new one..and you can patiently wait for the 998 TT.

    When I put Gt3 rims on my car to go on the track, sometimes , when I '' stress dynamically the car too much''  it touches a little bit somewhere...but I have never found where !! Anyway, not a problem.

    Now you can have a nice drive up that autostrada going towards the ' fine di stato '

     I agree the white rim make everything sort of come together a lot nicer. The car looks stunning now and sure stands out in the crowd Smiley. Also +1 for intouch, that way the wheels wont look smaller.


    Re: new wheels are on...

    looks great !

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: new wheels are on...

    I love the black wheels....but the white strip makes it look like you have "white wall" tires.


    Re: new wheels are on...

    Looks really great - congrats

    I just saw this little line at the end of your first post and must now send a double congrats. Yes you are on the right track; this triad of mods (suspension, exhaust, ECU) is the righteous path to Nirvana Smiley for all serious Turbo owners.

    If by springs you mean lowering springs, not coilover: springs are a good start, but all things considered, better to do the whole coilover (doesn't cost much more and installation similarly involving). I have observed that a number of people who install springs end up changing to a coilover eventually anyway. Nearly doubling the cost.

    And not that important, as long as you eventually get around to both, but for the order of changes most people would suggest to do the suspension before the ECU mod. Without stiffening the suspension first, adding more power will make the car even more sloppy than before (more squat/dive/roll).

    Re: new wheels are on...

    IMO the GT2 wheels make the Turbo much more attractive!

    Great choice Dario

    Re: new wheels are on...

    Very nice addition to an excellent car, sportivo e anche classico

    You don't need winter tyres in your area?

    It's not where you're going, it's how you get there that counts

    Re: new wheels are on...

    Alex,with CG exhaust around 20 ponies more

    Reginos,no winter tyres on the Turbo becouse i use the car only if the weather is "good",and only on week ends,so no need to have them,instead i have winter tyres on the Cayenne.
