    Another 997.1 turbo to the rennteam family !

    Hello rennteamers !!!!!!!!!

    its been a while since my last new thread at rennteam !...but I think the occasion means it !!.....

    A new addition to the rennteam family !!! Smiley

    We had delivery of this ¨little beast¨ a month ago or so. All I can say its a completely different driving experience  from atmospheric engines (987S, 997, 997S etc) , completely crazy, it gives you EVERYTHING in a second, dont want to exaggerate but you really need to focus what you want to do and at what point you want to stop accelerating, because the turbo boost is just in another whole level......

     

    Anyways, its a 2008 Porsche approved 997.1 Turbo with tiptronic S and of course, sport chrono SmileySmiley less than 20,000kms...We had an excellent oportunity at our dealer and couldn't turn down the deal. Smiley

     

    Would love in anyone could give me some insight regarding cleaning the exhaust tips, as they are a bit black, and its completely impossible to clean them and leave them as new, are there any products that could help ?, I have seen some threads at 6speedonline, but would like help regarding this.

    Also, I'm trying to do a research of what could be the best aftermarket exhaust for a 997 turbo, as the stock exhaust is nice and sounds excellent with the turbo blowing, but may be it lacks in sound vs a pdk carrera sport exhaust, although its not a priority...

    Its a completely new level, the performance this car and engine delivers it can be out of control by certain ¨overrall¨ drivers, sometimes I think its just too much regarding performance Smiley its like being the king of the road, by just using 40% of the real capabilities of the engine, it sounds a bit cocky, I know.SmileyP9080396.JPG

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    No clue what you are talking about... Smiley

    I was under the impression that you already acquired that car a while ago. Anyways, congratulations and a lot of entertaining kilometros.

    Regarding sport exhaust, Cargraphic seems to be very high on the list. Some others will chime in soon...

    First, congrats!
    Re. exhaust tip cleaning, you meant the outside chrome part, not the inside, right? The outside should stay bright and clean and shouldn't require much cleaning? What is on it that needs cleaning?

    Re: Another 997.1 turbo to the rennteam family !

    Congratulations!

    This model is the only Porsche sportscar  that can be had with Tiptronic S,without the performance suffering, so good choice.

    In fact the Tip S is faster than the Manual and you have the Overboost feature too.

    Re. exhaust tip cleaning, you meant the outside chrome part, not the inside, right? The outside should stay bright and clean and shouldn't require much cleaning? What is on it that needs cleaning?

     

    hello cannga, I mean both sides (inside and outside), the inside part is full of black particulars, impossible to clean them off, it just stays no matter how you clean, the outside part is a bit burned (a little bit of blue colour due to high temperatures) but also lots of black stains, also impossible to clean, no matter how hard you rub.....

    Speaking of which, today I received at home Autosol Metal polish, will see how it goes, any ideas ??...

    http://store.carcareeurope.com/product.php?productid=114

    I've seen some videos and read some articles regarding autosol metal polish and so far its a great product

    I also bought Dura Gloss perfect for cleaning windows and removing water spots (the rear window has some spots that are impossible to clean, so will see if this works too)

    http://store.carcareeurope.com/product.php?productid=655&cat=9&page=1

     

    Will post pics once they are clean, also some pics during the process if I see the final result is worth the time and effort Smiley

     

    Thanks again ! Smiley

    Again thanks to everyone for the great comments, rennteam is my second family ! Smiley

    Will post A LOT of more photos during the next weeks. Just bought a Nikon D5000, and another friend is coming to take some pictures with a Canon EOS 1000D, so result should be promising but not as good as Atomic80 photos ! Smiley

    Hi, Alex,

    by the way: Many congrats to your new purchase. The 997.1 Turbo is one of the most reliable and amazing fast 997. During the 2 years owning my sealgrey 997 Turbo  I had a lot of fun.
    Looking forward for many further pics of your beast.

    Attached the best describtion of the most perfect shape a 911 can have.
