    this is not true - we're getting one mid of next year.

    not that I am not believing what you are saying, but you seem to be the only person in Europe , even maybe the world , to have a '' real '' allocation yes

    Well - who knows but i have a signed contract but maybe i just have something with my PZ CH and not with the production plant - but i would be surprised that they sell u something they cannot get....


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Well, it will not be the first time....

    knowing the current delay on 992, I guess the permission for extra slots will be very limited.... this will be good for 991.2 GT3 RS owners.

    and may be the last NA on top .... who knows ...... times are changing fast ... may be too fast even Smiley

    Is there a price on the contract ? If not , that would probably be a '' pre - contract '' that just involves the dealer and you , not an official registered allocation with a production number .

    Haha, The Labs got me! I love them so.  Even the ones who've gone to HeavenSmiley

    Sun knows his RS is a January build,waiting to hear actual delivery date.

    Gnil, should he order factory tinted windows?  Since the cage is coming out, he was planning to have the dealer do the entire job for less than the 3 windows only the factory does.

    If Sun would of keaped  the cage then I would not take the tinted windows as it hides it . Nice to see those metal bars on an RS .

    But Sun needs space and maybe he like to take a nap on those back '' seats '' , then tinted would make lots of sense Smiley

    I have seen a few cars with tinted . It is pretty dark and the difference with the front window is like black and white . If he likes this  sun state look then yes, he must go for it , if he like a more subtile look, then no .

    Smiley Many buyers seem to care about resale value and/or value as a collectible. Not clever. This can look completely differently in a couple of years. Does someone remember the value of used GT3 a couple of years ago? They were basically sitting at dealerships and didn't sell (almost) at all.

    Unless we were talking highly limited models here, like the 911 R or the GT3 RS 4.0 but even here, things can change.

    they were selling 997s 2RS and 3RS 4.0L here in UAE at discount...they were collecting dust. Smiley

    Couple of years ago the craziness was there unfortunately...4 years ago when GT3.1 just got released, this is where the madness started. thanks to PDK...

    Not a flipper waited 2.5 years for my 991.2 RS just like to know every detail. For me passion means I have knowledge as well and I like to know everything.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Ok thanks buddy. Also can you give me a proper breakin procedure for the engine there are some things online but don’t know how reliable they are and the manual says nothing funny enough. 1540961714262image.jpg1540961739112image.jpg


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    welcome and enjoy it.

    to brake it in, I did 500kms below 5000rpm and then increase rpm by 500 every 150kms.

    the european manual says 1500kms break in period.

    we can meet in Dubai, I live there as well, would be nice to meet enthusiats.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Keeping it below 5000 rpm for the first 1500 km is surely a good recommendation, for the first 500 km maybe not but there is a lot of controversy going on when it comes to the proper break-in, so I just would try to avoid high rpm for the first 1500 km and avoid track racing during that particular period of time as well. Some people say no engine break-in is necessary but as long as Porsche recommends to keep it slow during the first 1500 km, I would respect that. This is not only about the engine but drivetrain parts as well, also tires, brakes, etc., so it is a good idea to keep it slow for the first 500 km...at least.

    Most important thing: Warm it up properly, oil temperature, not water temperature (some people choose to look at the water temp only). But I guess this is not something I have to tell experienced sportscar drivers. wink

    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Ok thanks for that anyway I keep it under 3000 for the first 500 and then slowly build up the rpm. Yes I know oil temperature is most important always.
