Lovely jubbly. Must feel great owning something like that and even better driving it.

Manuel indeed. It's got the sports shifter optional extra which shortens the throw; lovely precise action to the shift. The brakes are perfectly weighted for the heel'n'toe as well; despite being a bit crap at it I've pulled off a couple of nice blips as I go down the gears.

What does WRT mean?

With Regard To.

It's nice... but I agree about the wheels ;)

My bro in law has the same wheels on his silver 997S, different shade to yours though.

With Regards To, I think.

Looks great - but surely you should have waited until retirement before buying it?

Je suis confus.

Very cool. Enjoy. I'm. Not jealous at all ;)

Indeed, turbot wheels non?

Never knew that quick shift was an option, I approve. I want a go.:D

I'm not desperately keen on the mk1 TT wheels either, but hey - it's not my car. :D

Otherwise - looks fantastic. 8)

Now.... look into the eyes the eyes the eyes not around the eyes....

You will post a video clip shortly. OK? ;)

Very nice 8).

Coolio. I like the wheels.

Entirely pointless

So purty. I like the wheels too, dislike the rear wiper though.

How about not having a sig at all?

I thought the rear wiper would annoy me too, but it's amazing how quickly your eyes almost unconsciously tune it out; I noticed it far more in the photos of the car before I bought it than I do in the metal. It's also good to have; I'm a bit OCD about having a clear windscreen/windows so being able to clear the back window is a bonus, particularly when it has a vaguely Group C-esque vertical-to-diagonal sweep on it. 8)

Interesting that the wheels divide opinion. I really like them; they're my favourite design of the ones available on the 997 and I was made up that I found a car with them on. As a matter of interest, what do the naysayers dislike? Is it that they are ostensibly the 997.1 Turbo's wheels (and therefore should not be on a Carrera) or just something about the styling?

Thanks for all the kind comments. I will do my best to get a video up once I work out how to mount the camera in the most advantageous position. It makes me grin all over my face every time I look at it at the moment. :D
