    newbie C4S cab

    Hey guys, just reached agreement with dealer for C4s, I have been lurking for the past few weeks and value the discussions on the board.
    Here is what I have on order for march build:

    E9- Midnight blue Metallic
    v4- Metropol blue top
    td- sand beige std leather
    267- self dimming mirrors
    342- heated front seats
    446- wheel cap with colored crest
    482- tpms
    640- sport chrono pkg plus
    670- nav for pcm
    692- remote cd changer 6 cd
    xcz- sport shifter
    xsc- porsche crest headrest
    xxz- foot rest aluminum
    x70 - metal door sill model insignia
    xaj- std rocker panel painted
    m6n- sand beige floor mats
    680- bose high end sound pkg
    p15- power seat pkg
    460-leather sport str wheel
    x54- stainless steel exhaust pipes

    other item- chip guard -$ 699 (Clear bra)

    I have done business with this dealer before and went in with the statement that I would want 7% off list and got no resistance so it is done, he is also throwing in the 560.00 car seat with deactivation.

    The order is obviously not set in stone yet so any feedback is welcome. I looked hard at the adaptive sport seats but the dealer advised that it cannot be obtained in the sand beige standard leather.
    Thanks guys, please comment on the color and options.

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    What about the best option of all: Sport Exhaust?

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    I drove both with and without and loved the sound but did not feel that the sound difference justified the price for no HP gain. Is there a difference in the exhaust tips or backpressure with the sport exhaust?

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    Peer,

    I'm sure you knew this already but in case not, did you press the "sport" button on the dash to enable the sport exhaust (PSE)? Otherwise, the sound of the PSE equipped car will sound exactly like the car w/o PSE. This is because the car will default with the PSE off.

    Also, even if you enabled PSE correctly, the sound comes on and off based on speed (and perhaps throttle position). What this means is that the sound of the PSE will cutoff at the time you most want to hear it, which is under moderate to full throttle. So what most members on this board have done with their PSE-equipped cars is to disconnect the electical connector in order to enable PSE all the time. I can assure you that this makes a big difference in how the car sounds. The exhaust tips on a PSE car are different, and in my opinion, better. Sorry, I don't know if there is a backpressure difference.

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    Thanks, I did press the PSE button and there was an impressive change in the sound (for the better). My dealer mentioned that this was approx 2k option but I did not get the exact price as I was not interested in it until now. It is not a listed option in the car configurator with the C4S cab. I will try to see if it is a listed option on other 997 trim levels but right now their configurator is painfully slow. Do you remember the price?

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    I believe it was approximately $2400.

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    Ok Alan,

    Thanks for bringing this up. I have looked at other posts about the exhaust and now have the feeling that I may be shelling out the extra $. I have tried to show some restraint in buiding this but as you can see have failed miserably. I can't wait. Had a 996 which I got rid of for an SL500 which is certainly not a sports car. Having the sport exhaust is another facet of feeling connected to the car and not insulated. I usually listen to the car and not the music so I think you are exactly right! Much apreciated.

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    Welcome Peer! "Upstate" is quite large. Northeast? Central? West? Would be nice to meet "face to face" with Rennteam members.

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    Welcome and congrads on a great car!

    There are some great roads around here (Finger Lakes region).

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    That's where my ex-gf converted me from Mercedes to Porsche, near Cicero! Welcome fellow New Yorker

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    Get the PSE for sure. I just picked up my C2S Cab today after having it retro-fitted. Love the sound.

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    Congrats, great car.

    You can get Sand Beige Sport Seats no problem, but there is just an up charge:

    TE Sand Beige Sport Seats $0 (requires either P01 or P77)
    P01 Adaptive Sport Seats $3,055
    P77 Leather Sport Seats $760

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    Great specs.. I would definitely go with the PSE, I think you may regret it later if you dont... It can be easily retrofitted, but you will pay upwards of $3K, as opposed to $2400 if you order it factory fitted

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    Saratoga. Not too bad. About two and a half hours.I'd like to cruise some of those roads with you in the Spring. There must be more of us in our area. Let's see what happens.

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    Thanks guys,
    Went to the dealer today, drove a C2S with PSE and now have added it to the order.

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    Peer, if you can burn mp3 CD-Rs you really don't need the 6 disc changer.
    p.s. I lived in Albany for 18 cold years but August at Saratoga was great!

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    It still is ,Bud. Thanks!

    Re: newbie C4S cab

    You must get the Sport Exhaust System. Makes porsche sound like a Porscheeeeeee.
