    And the winner is:

    After a 6+ month wait, I collected the following car from my local dealer:















    So there you have it..
    996 Carrera 4S
    Lightweight GT3 wheels,
    Sports Exhaust,
    Sports Gearshift,
    Fixed Aeropack,
    Lowered suspension with spring / damper / ARB upgrades,
    Litronics (HIDs)
    Plus more...

    ...and it's very yellow!

    No...not at all, I shall continue to stay as I'm not aware that Audi ownership is a pre-requisite for being a Moderator, and as there are still users around that require frequent antagonising, it would be churlish to leave now!

    That was the one part I was slightly unsure of...but you can't fit the rear Aerokit without the front....otherwise the car becomes unstable at speed.

    You see, the rear wing gives significant downforce over the rear, which in turn makes the front go light...too much air under the front = front lift = not good.
    so, you need the front lower section to make the front lift neutral, before you can let the rear wing work.

    Having seen it close up, on the car, it looks better than it does in pictures....overall I'm a happy bunny!

    So whats the power delivery like? how does it pull in comparison to the S3? Did you get the power upgrade? Im take it the handling is as good as ever?

    Power delivery is perfect, linear, punchy, not lacking in any way...and with an induction note to die for! An engine with proper soul.


    [ QUOTE ]

    Did you get the power upgrade?

    Nah...didn't see the need.
    I spent the 6000 elsewhere...on things that are likely to give better gains.

    No, the first one (the Turbo) was a complete wind up...just came accross it while researching this one.

    My car IS my ideal and perfect choice...I opted for everything I wanted...right down to pushing Porsche GB to get the wheels I wanted.

    I don't actually like the Nogaro Blue one as much as mine...in particular the interior...it just doesn't work, for me.

    I guess I'm fortunate that I was able to have absolutely everything I wanted this time round...the model, the options and the colour.

    A couple of factors I thought about...I wanted the eide body as I find it prettier, I wanted the 4WD because of where I live, and I wanted the upgraded chassis because of the roads I drive...a C2 would have been nice, but for me, the C4S would be much quicker everywhere.

    Tyre wear will be what it is...annoying, probably!

    Good luck with your search...your's will turn up!

    Only thing I don't understand is the colour, but it's good to know that's one 911 that will be used properly [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    What's to understand about the colour?
    Speed Yellow suits any 911 with a fixed Aerokit, in my view.

    Who wants to spend that kind of cash and blend in?

    Actually, the facination for Speed Yellow comes from my old Managers GT3 that I had a few laps of Knockhill in...it was Speed Yellow...that's where the perversion for Speed Yellow started.
