How come the touring has had an early second service, thought it was 2 year intervals on GT cars.

So discussion seems to have fizzled out on the 992. Has everyone lost interest already?

I think it’s more a factor that only something like 100 cars so far have been confirmed for the UK (based on 2 or 3 per OPC). With 991.2 even the plebs at the back of the queue like me already had a good idea they were getting a car....so there were 600 people out there who wanted to discuss their new toy.

That and there’s much less “new” about this car to talk about. It is all about the chassis and aero....drivetrain is the same etc. When people start getting cars I am sure there will be lots to talk about. Will be fascinated to hear what people think of it on UK roads.

Agreed, even if I wanted one I doubt I'd be able to get one based on the extremely limited supply this time round.

Despite my criticisms I'm still mega interested in the 992 - much more than anything else new or forthcoming I have to say. It is a GT3 afterall. I'm particularly curious what they will do with the Touring.

Sorry, wrong thread smile

No wing, they will paint the front properly and it’ll have softer suspension and no rear seats.

Personally I always thought it would have made sense to offer PDK as due to its understated looks it makes an awesome daily....which for a lot of people would mean PDK would be the better choice. But I suppose the 991.2 GT3 Touring was about taking the heat out of 911 R prices.

Believe it or not, some OPC sales reps get pissed off when guys return for the next new shiny GT3, showing silly low miles on the one they have.

They are like, why do you want another one, you haven't used the one you have hehe

Even though I have them, commenting on Alcantara seatbelt outlets is quiet clearly a joke. So is commenting on the mileage of other peoples cars.

Red with steel brakes.

Yellow with PCCBs.

I don't make the rules up, that's just the way it is. Without rules, where would we be?

Quite although I broke the rules bigtime and have red belts and red steering wheel marker to go with the red stitching but yellow ceramics calipers redcard to obviously provide essential contrast. hehe

Red belts with red car trumps yellow belts with PCCB's.
