woot woot :D

congratulations,

can I issue 1 word of warning though?   dont do diff gears,  because once you do, you'll be ruined for ever,  nothing will ever drive as well or as fun as the GT3.

so in short,

Put some 4:11's in it


and nothing you ever drive will ever even come close, my biggest automotive mistake was selling my GT3, everything else just bores me now. even my TT with just shy of 500 HP didnt cut it :(

I'll testify to that as that's my GT3 now, not much left to do on it, full fabspeed with cat bypass, gonna get me one of these next https://www.fabspeed.com/996_GT3_48.html which should help the breathing, good luck with the car it looks a lovely example... Any plans to track it?

probably wont track it

I am not the fastest of drivers, I am quite happy in the Adelaide hills on a few of my preferred twisty roads to nowhere going along in 2nd or 3rd gear doing my best to accelerate rapidly out of 15km/h sign posted corners right up to the speed limit.

Pick the right roads at the right times and you can enjoy a traffic free drive.

If I feel the need to improve on that experience, I will go to the track :)

im tempted, but its supposed to be raining

either way, I would be taking it slow, probably bore you to tears, or cause you to wait for me everywhere

Update: cant make it sorry, was just reminded I have another commitment.

Congrats on the purchase, obviously I am a big fan. Literally becoming rarer and rarer. There is a review of the generations of GT3s in the latest EVO magazine.

We'll cut you some slack because you are getting used to the car but let's not hear this sort of talk again. It's a Porsche.  :p

Congratulations on the new toy. Have fun!

But a pity to hear that no one wanted your Europa other than a dealer.
