    My new GT3

    Hello and congrats on your new ride I picked up mine two hours ago!!! :D so can't make any comments at the moment :)
  3. Thank you! Yes mine has the PDLS and they are black, which as you said go very well with the car's color. On engine: It says that my car was produced in October 2013 but the delivery note says that the delivery date was August 2014, so it might be one of those that was recalled while in factory and had its engine replaced. I asked my sales executive and he said that he "wasn't sure" and didn't have info. Im not concerned tbh but Is there a way I can find out? A friend had a full refund earlier this year from the same dealer following the recall. So i assume that I'll be safe even if anything happens. I myself had an engine failure on my (earlier production) 997 gen1 and my engine was replaced at no cost to me. Those had an intermediate shaft issue
  4. Hi guys I've traded in my C2 MY13 (17000km) with a brand new MY14 991 GT3! The car has been ordered by the dealer so I didnt pick the options however it has almost every option I wanted. The right color composition, etc. It was also a good deal especially that the nearest delivery date if I order one will probably be in 6-8 months. I'm picking the new car tomorrow :D I have few questions, if I may: 1- how easy is it to replace the seat belts with another color? I'm thinking of red belts to match the stitching 2- can I replace the headlights with the LED fitted ones? If yes, is it worth the investment and technically recommended? 3- can anyone direct me to an online version of the 991 GT3 user manual? I apologize if answers to some of these questions are available elsewhere in the forum. I tried looking but couldn't find it. Regards, Hamad
  5. Now take it easy Hamad. You want to break it in carefully. Will do, thanks! :D I'm in love
  6. The car was delivered few hours ago. To be honest I couldn't wait longer to have the signs removed :) I want to drive it over weekend and can't wait longer.. I might have them remove the signs when I take it in for service. This car is powerful! Much more powerful than my old 997!!! :D
  7. I heard back from my sales agent yesterday. The bodyshop don't recommend removing the Carrera sign "cause it'll leave marks on the body". Apparently removing the sign now is not recommended, unless I have the whole back side repainted. Not the most ideal outcome but I'd rather have the original paint... I'm supposed to collect it tomorrow :D
  8. Hello, I'm picking up my new 991 next week. It's a Porsche approved 2013 C2 with around 12,000km on it. I'm very excited and look forward to getting behind the wheels. I was wondering what you guys would prefer for the back sign? I'm not quite convinced with the "P O R S C H E 911 Carrera". Everyone knows that it's a Porsche... I'm thinking of taking off the signs and keeping the 911 only. Thoughts?
  9. Hi, Is there a pdf version of the 981C's user manual? thanks, H
  10. Hi thereGot the car back. There was a random misfire when the battery died which caused the check engine light. I guess it was low voltage feeding into the engine that caused that. Changed battery, reset faults and all back to normal. Got her back home safely :) Thanks Loren!H
  11. Unfortunately I don't have any of those at home. I'm calling the insurance company now to take it to the dealer. Will keep you guys posted.Regards,Hamad
  12. Hello all I got the check engine light earlier tonight when I started my car. Stopped it for 3 hours then tried again and the car won't start. Feels like a dead battery and I got German words on the screen. Seems like the battey needs replacement (which is expected as it's been there since the car was purchased). I carefully drive the car, only weekends. I usually drive with high rpm's (which is normal for these cars) but never reach the red zone. Last night I was enjoying the sports mode and reached 200km couple of times. Not sure that's the cause for check engine light.. Today i was treating the leather inside the car and the internal lights were on for a while which killed the battery probably. Question is, is it the dead battery that caused the check engine light or could it be something else (misfire etc.) I will take it o the dealer tomorrow but would like some advice beforehand. It's a 997s MY 2005 manual. Thanks in advance H
  13. Hi guys, what's the average mileage for clutch replacement? I changed mine at 50,000km about two years ago and when I took my car for its yearly check/service (around 66,000km now) the garage gave me a quote to replace the clutch again! I tracked my car about 2 times over the past two years and I occasionally drive fast.. the quote included: -door arrester? -clutch -clutch release bearing -clutch operating cylinder -clutch master cylinder -battery (although mine works fine but they say its old!!) does this make sense to you? or they're trying to make money out of me? I got my pre-owned warranty renewed, however, the guy at the garage said I might need the new clutch within the next 2-3000km. your advice is greatly appreciated. regards, H
  14. Loren, I over reved my car once last month while tracking it. was coming out of a turn in second gear and was concentrating on getting the exit right and went over 7500 RPM. the car 'chocked' and I changed to third immediately. nothing to be noticed happened to the car (neither performance nor engine light). I am still worried but the car seem to be running just fine. your advice is appreciated Hamad
  15. Thanks bjereb! The clutch issue turned out to be a fluid that needs flashing! :) getting it flashed and changing all breaks. ready for the January round :D
  16. Thanks guys! I booked myself to go back in January :D How much is too much with these things? would the constant very high RPM (around 7/7.5) harm the engine? Happy New Year and Merry Christmas! Hamad
  17. very nice Philip! question, would the cold air intake harm the engine? I am thinking of having one for the sound, do you recommend it?
  18. Few more. Hamad P.S. the GT3's photos is a GT3 cup race that I attended last week on the same track. I wasn't racing :D
  19. Guys, It rained heavily in the morning on Friday and my session was due to start at 1pm. I was worried they will cancel the whole thing but luckily it didn't rain after 9am which meant we had a dust-free track all afternoon :D I had so much fun and it turned out that you don't have to be a 'pro' to enjoy these things! Everybody was at same level nearly and those who were good were very helpful in giving tips and even supportive in the track (been patient around corners if you know what I mean :)). I wasn't slow compared to others thanks to my car :rolleyes: I have to say I never knew what this car is capable of till I had those 2 full hours of very high RPM (30min each, is that bad for the car???). I did around 200km in those 2 hours, max speed of 225km on a straight of 1.1km, and used a tank full of fuel!! The car was on sports mode all the time B) Anyway, there were no problems in my car (except the clutch pedal getting stuck half way couple of times which never happened after leaving the track?! and some rock chips in the front (the wax idea wasn't as good as it should be)). There was a guy in a 996 GT3 who had a leak in his radiator and a Saleen which had one lap and broke down!!!! I'm glad I wasn't in their place! Thank you Mark, Philip, Paul, and Marc for your advice! here are some pics from my friends phone (Im still excepting more from a guy who was taking photos around the track but I will only post more if there is something different to see (e.g. the Bugati that came out of no where!) Thanks, Hamad
  20. Maurice, I will take pictures this weekend with my good camera. Will post asap! Phillip Philip, Good looking wheels! congrats!! Will wait for the pics.. hope not too long this time! :) Hamad
  21. Mark, Thank you so much for an awesome advice! I really appreciate it! Yes, there will be an instructor, who should take me for a couple of rides (once him driving and then me driving), then ill be by myself. I was hoping to use the crono for the first time :) its been there and I used to time my business visits only! It's an open track day not a race so your advice is very valid. I have filled my tires with hydrogen (which according to some posts here better than air). I will make sure I keep checking the pressure after each run. Im still new to this so I will leave the modding for next time, if any! :) I will post pics as soon as possible. Thanks again! Hamad
