    New 997S

    Picked up my seal grey/black 997S on saturday and enjoyed a wonderful weekend. Hihglight was 6am sunday doing 100 miles through the beautiful South Downs in perfect weather with no traffic.

    Here's my thoughts:-
    Sports Exhaust is wonderful, you never tire of the noise when it's extended. Sounds a bit tame when it's off. RC's tip worked perfectly but I put the pipe back on to stop it droneing on the motorway.
    Sports suspension gives a very hard ride on English roads. It clearly tightens up the rebound and compression damping and is best on smooth tarmac or the track. Standard setting is great.
    Sports shifter is very direct and perfect when giving it the berries but difficult to change smoothly at low speed or it could be me being useless!
    Bose is nothing special
    Seal grey with classic carrera wheels is fantastic.
    Sports seats are a bit tight for me (I'm 6'4") but otherwise great. New wheel is more adjustable which is good.

    Engine is strong but not as strong as my GT3RS but there's not much in it. RS revs and picks up quicker, you can really feel the single mass flyweheel. S Definitely sounds better though with PSE.

    Handling is similar, it pushes the front more when you floor it out of slower corners but the ride is better. As a road car it is similar but better riding. I'll give you a track comparison shortly.

    Brakes are not as strong as RS, they lack the intial bite but still bedding in perhaps?

    I think that's it. All in all a very happy boy.

    Congratulations on your new 997S.

    Re: New 997S

    Congrats Jack,
    Re PSE, in standard setup how do you cope with the cut off between 50 and 80 kmh?
    Really that annoying?

    Re: New 997S

    Franch, I never really noticed it. It doesn't open and close instantly and I know this sounds daft but I never seemed to stay in that speed range ie was either accelarating through it, so it was still open or decelerating with a no throttle anyway. It really isn't a big deal.
