    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    Congrats! Looks lovely. I was planning on going for meteor with sandbeige for my next car.

    Is Meteor much darker than Seal Grey?

    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    Here's a sample showing Meteor grey vs Seal grey.

    Seal on the left and Meteor on the right


    Meteor on top and Seal on the bottom


    As you can see, Meteor seems to be more grey whereas Seal seems to have a slight blue/purple tint to it.

    POLO,

    great pick and choice. Very tasteful color combination, suits the turbo well! You didn't pick pdc...like that choice!

    la couleur est sublime, et l'interieur bi ton aussi!



    Je ne savais pas que tu parlais français dimitri.

    Superbe porsche Polo. Les étriers de freins jaunes vont bien avec la couleur extérieure. Très bon choix. Va falloir que tu fasses attention aux radars avec la turbo parce que en france, ça rigole plus.

    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!!

    The combination Meteor/PCCB gives it that extra edge! Congratulations!

    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    Fantastic car... The colour-combo is perfect IMO. Am I the only one in here that think the yellow big pccb callipers are worth the extra cost alone (in the look department) and the less unsprung weight and fade-free braking is an extra plus

    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    Congrats on a great looking car, Polo - superb colour combo (most elegant combo I've seen so far) - of course you French guys know how to spell elegance
    I'm a bit puzzled by pic # 10: clothes on the passenger's seat and the girl has disappeared....

    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    Looks great, can't wait for my Meteor/Cocoa TT next year!

    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    nice.....

    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    beautiful ! excellent choice Polo ! and very nice pictures...

    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    Tres belle voiture! et le choix de couleur et vraiment splandide Bonne route avec elle et fais attention au radar

    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    Beautiful car, Polo. I know what you mean about being difficult to put it back in the garage. I have the same feeling......but then the excitement is there when you open the garage in the morning! Enjoy safely.

    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    Polo , perfect looking car. Meteor is stunning !
    And no rear wiper or sunroof , love it !!
    Can't wait for mine. I still have time to change options, etc and I really like Meteor seeing it on your car.
    Maybe ...
    Amuse toi bien

    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    WowPolo,
    C'est une voiture magnifique!
    Do you still have your classic 911? If so, could you please make some pics of the two cars together?

    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    sorry guys I will continue in english... here is a second french turbo !

    Re: 997 TURBO arrived...

    Thanks guys I enjoyed reading your comments about this car.

    2-tone interior does match very well with meteor and the darker color of wheels. Plus This color is very stealth - not flashy - Another thing with meteor is that when the car car is dirty it barely changes the color so up-keep is not that hard, however it is not excuse to not wash it!

    Comments regarding radar, I know I have to be carefull with them because nowdays in france they are not joking about speeding, but I will definitely carefull, in order to be able to keep my liscense to drive this awesome machine.

    By the way, my odo indicates 300km and apart to get used to PASM suspension I can just praise the car. This morning I went for a ride on the highway and wow the torque in 6th gear in stunning - i pushed up to 200km/h so easily. Overtaking takes the time of a blink of an eye - so fun.
    I'm so glad I chose the turbo over a C2S X51 like I wanted before because I love the feel of the trust/torque that provide this engine - so enjoyable.

    Did drive B-roads and pushing not too hard the car and the speedo was reading 140km/h then time to back off on the throttle because didn't want to brake too hard for the next turn, so fun to let the engine "speak".

    Comment concerning as the one who think that this car can be compared to M-B oh boy there are IMO so wrong. 997TT feel much lighter, much more stable, responsive, reassuring. Brakes, steering, gear box are so much more precise. This car gives confidence wheter you are on the highway cruising, or attacking on a B-road. Where as A M-B feels a lot heavier and less reassuring on B-road. M-B car feels much more filtered concerning road noise and different surfaces one can uncounter.

    The direction is really razor sharp, same for the brakes and steering - what a pleasure - Brakes does not squeak what so ever, even in city driving.

    Thanks again friends for the great/kind comments...

    Will post later further impressions of this so enjoyable car.
