    My latest mods

    One is pretty obvious, the other ... well, for the connaisseurs it might be obvious as well





    And I finally have that little leather part that was missing in the interior:


    Re: My latest mods

    Looks great. How did you get the little leather part in front of the shifter at the base of the console? Is it factory or aftermarket? My plastic piece drives me nuts. When you order the rear center console in leather, they should include this piecs as well, even if they raise the price to cover the costs.

    Re: My latest mods

    Thx. I actually had to wait until my dealer had a 997 with cocoa interior on order. They then added that piece to that car and switched it when it was delivered.
    It's impossible to simply order it afterwards.

    Re: My latest mods

    Did the new owner know about that? Would it still be listed on the window sticker? I'll ask my dealer and see if I can do that.

    Re: My latest mods

    That little piece is actually part of this option:

    CDZ - Gear Shift Trim in Leather

    It's also a Porsche exclusive item. Many folks have managed to overlook this small piece including myself. Because it's an "exclusive" item, Porsche will not allow folks to order this piece post-delivery without making you jump through a few hoops. You'd have to find someone who has ordered these items for his/her car and then get their VIN number. I managed to find someone with a car that has this piece, get his VIN number and then have my parts department order it. Took a couple of months to finally get it but I'm very happy with the end results.

    How much is it?

    Re: My latest mods

    Those oval tips are nice. I like the way they over lap. Fits better than the round ones. Good choice.

    Re: My latest mods

    And the other is fully red rear lights? Meaning no white in it?

    Re: My latest mods

    Very nice complete red rear lights

    http://www.porsche.com/germany/accessori...;hideintro=true

    the pipes are from TechArt?

    Re: My latest mods

    What have you done to the rear bumper? The lip seems to be painted but it also looks different from the original?


    Great mods. 440 Euro for one piece of plastic is really expensive. Those rear lights are not even leds. Do yu have to change the all thing or can you change the red plastic around the light? (don't know how else to explain it)

    You've got one of the most beautiful 997TT I've seen so far. Mods are discreat but yet make your car unique

    Re: My latest mods

    Simply beautiful. You truly have good taste

    Actually it's the price for two pieces of plastic (pair of rear light covers)

    @ Rami: well done - your TT is close to perfection now in terms of individualization and beauty

    Re: My latest mods

    I haven't seen the price yet but I'm sure they will know what to charge for it
    And it's just like Atomic80 describes it, it's a hassle to get it but well worth the trouble.

    The other mod is indeed the red taillights.
    It's the complete light that's changed amazon, not just a cover or something. My original lights are lying in my basement now
    The rear bumper has the TechArt diffusor but I had that one installed from the start.

    Thx for the nice words btw

    That's the thing, the dealership had no idea how much to charge me for that "little piece." They've charged me $149 dollars for now I'm assuming as agreed by us both. They'll let me know of the final price when Porsche comes back to them with that info.

    Funnily enough, I didn't even notice the red tailights until you guys started talking about it! How blind I must be! Looks great, Rami! Maybe I should do the same too! Could you take a few shots however tricky they may be with the turn signals flashing?

    Re: My latest mods

    Very nice. The diffuser looks really good, so do the lights. Porsche should really give everyone that leather piece in front of the gear shifter. instead of nickel & diming us to death. How's the night time reversing with all red lights in the rear?

    Re: My latest mods

    CDZ is usually a $430 US piece... If you got it for $149 that's a steal. I do love it though, and really think it completes a full leather interior.

    Re: My latest mods

    What color is your car? Yours has to be the nicest turbo I have seen!

    Re: My latest mods

    I think it's Atlas grey!!

    Indeed, for now, the nicest Turbo around!!

    Although I wasn't that fond of the all red rear lights when I saw them first at the Porsche homepage I have to say they look gorgeous at Rami's Atlas grey car!

    Re: My latest mods

    Thanks for the pics Rami. Simply beautifull!!!!! Are all the mods by Techart?

    Thx Atomic80

    I tried to take some pics but they didn't really succeed. I will try again with my good camera in a few days.

    Here are two examples:



    Re: My latest mods

    Night time reversing hasn't posed any problems Stradale, I didn't even notice a difference (altho there might actually be one). Will let you know later

    Color is Atlas Grey indeed, thx Porker

    Tips, diffusor and headlight rings are TechArt material silverrules.

    Re: My latest mods

    Thanks Rami! These are perfect! I'm going to get a set ordered! If you could provide part numbers for both red tailights, that would be most helpful!

    Re: My latest mods

    I haven't received the invoice yet. I'll let you know when it arrives
