    Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Just picked up my 997 Cab S after 6 months of Coupe ownership.

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Stunning.. just.. stunning. Alright I'm biased towards black beauties but isn't it the perfect color for the cab? The interior is all black too, I take it?

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Indeed perfect combo black/black with Carrera Classics, congrats

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Very nice, congrats .

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Can't say I blame you for making the change. It's a beauty! Good luck

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Hope we get some decent weather in the UK for you to enjoy some blasts with the top down

    If I jinx the summer weather then don't blame me

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Do you always "throw away" your cars after 6 months???

    Lucky you...

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Thanks for your kind comments.

    The car is triple black.

    Nav, PSE, Parkassist, Carrera Classics, Heated seats, CD Changer, Homelink, Cruise.

    I am somewhat bemused by the function of PSE. If i accelarate hard it turns off?

    I thought it was speed related?

    I have a seperate button for PSE as I didn't spec sport chrono, I will speak to my dealer about making this button operate as the only control over PSE.

    I love the PSE tailpipes though.

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Perfect ! Enjoy ! Cheers !!!

    Not usually, I had my Boxster S for 13 months and I would have kept it until the 997 Cab was available except it was stolen, then recovered.

    Felt a bit dirty after that so got the 997 Coupe to fill in until the cab was ready.

    I might keep the cab until the Panamera is ready.....

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    jesus, you go through porsche's like i go through shoes.
    wait... i dont even go through shoes that fast!

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Nice Ride.
    Love the shot from the rear.
    The cab looks so freakin wide

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Great car!!

    Almost the same I have. I hope you have so much fun with it like I have.

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Great car,
    Congrats!
    Do you play for Man U?
    Looks very nice in black, always thought cabs should be lighter colors than coupe, but hey, can't say anything now! that one's gorgeous!
    Your comment re PSE makes sense as PSE is now not dependant on speed anymore but basically every car data through the DME.
    Check RC's post to have it on at all times.
    Do you confirm that the sounds is crap with PSE turned off?
    Cheers mate!

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    997C2SCabBlack;I too am about to decide whether to change after 8 months in a 997S (probably to a demonstrator until a 4S arrives, I do too many miles!), I had an offer of losing Pounds4,000 on the car after 6 months which I declined, care to reveal what this cost you so I can gauge my negotiation?
    You could PM me if you do not want your wifes lawyer to know

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    great ride, and GOOD MOVE into the black/black/black cab!!

    we're quite similar spec-wise...


    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    997c2sblack, would you mind me asking how much the 997's value dropped when you traded it in for the cab? much appreciated thnx

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Very nice car, enjoy.

    Regarding the PSE: did you check out the thread about the "loudness" mod? A simple trick does the job.

    very nice I really start liking the cabrio version, but only in black! Now you should just wait for the a nice sunny weekend here in Manchester! Wouldn't mind if you take me for a short run...

    PS: The pipes are great!

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Nice Car!!!

    those rims are really making me think about changing from this to that...

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Looking real good. Is that the gloss black? The shine is awesome off it!

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    I would love to see another picture showing your car from the side. Can you post one ?

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab

    Re: Bye bye 997 Coupe, Hello 997 Cab
