    2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    I obviously do not possess any photography skills so I just washed the car and pulled it into the street to snap photos.






























    I just want to say thanks to the following people who really helped me out along the way:
    • Atomic80 (Jason), The Groom and many others for helping me make sure the specs were just right.
    • Eric the Plug Guy for the black Turbo logo and all the information he posted while we were all waiting for our 2009 cars.
    • Ric at Suncoast Porsche for the side markers, tail lights, Das Shild, floor mats, and all that other stuff I ordered from him.
    • Stradale for providing the inspiration for my wheels.
    • Dave, Alan and the rest of the guys at Wheel Enhancement for putting together my Champion RS171 wheels and going way above and beyond to provide amazing customer support and service.
    • Valerio at Poggipolini for my wheel bolts (not yet installed).
    • Damon at TireRack for my winter tires and miscellaneous other stuff.
    • Moe at Glistening Perfection for the great wash and detail products, including the Airmax dryer and water de-ionizer.
    • Alex at SharkWerks for all of the free advice, the upcoming mods, and for being a very cool guy.
    • Nancy at Niello Porsche for taking care of my order and putting up with my OCD.
    • Anyone and everyone else who have helped me along the way.

    I still need to swap over the Poggipolini bolts - the driver was forgotten and just arrived a few minutes ago. I really like how the wheels turned out. I ordered black wheel weights and had the valve stems painted black for the "finished" look.

    LOVE the leather details and deviated stitching. Looks like they got it spot on!

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    That's pretty much perfection right there She's beautiful, congrats

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    Beautiful!

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    this would be exactly how I would spec. and mod. my TT, except for back-painted seats and rear center console with exterior color... can you please the after-market mods.? they look like champion motor sport stuff... (fantastic car btw)

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    Wonderful,except for the non original parts,rim and exaust tip.
    IMHO

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    i would leave the lip and side skirts unpainted. it will look better with the black rims.

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    Excellent.. Glad to see you and Porsche got it right on the stitching..so many examples we see of screwups.. I think the leather sills and stitching are worth all the extra care you have to take to protect them.. I love the skirts and spoiler painted body color. Best of luck with your car.

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    Wow, you really nailed the interior nicely. Perfectly done with the yellow stitching everywhere it needs to be.

    Damn nice. Be safe.

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    Scott, it warms the heart to see that you're very happy with the way your Turbo turned out. If I may say so, she's a beauty in every respect. Those little details really do make the car and I'm glad that we were able to get them perfect.

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    Ohh.am I correct in assuming Door Finishers in Leather is no longer an option???

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    great looking car,congrats!


    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    Many congratulations, striking colour scheme

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    Simply stunning!

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    I appreciate all of the positive comments. The great thing about Porsche is that you can order your car almost however you want. Options and mods are individual decisions and it is great to be able to have choices.

    Jason and Eric, thanks again for the help along the way. RAKLAW, when I ordered, Door Finishers in Leather, could not be ordered for whatever reason. They might be available again now though.

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    Cool car....

    Re: 2009 White 997TT Coupe (BWW - lots of photos)

    White is the best color for the Turbo. great with the black wheels as well. Enjoy the ride!
