  1. Thanks philipj - I will. Now I have to out into the garage and pick up.......ummmm.....what was it now again........ Never mind, I'll have a look at the car instead ;)
  2. Sort of forgot I started this thread :rolleyes: Anyway - since mid September this year I have a 997S 2008 in my garage... :thumbup: The car is a low milage MT black beauty. Interior is also black and options are: PSE, Sport Chrono, sport seats and extended leather => all the options I wanted! Carrera Sport wheels with Pirelli PZERO, although I think at next tire swap I'll try another brand since they don't seem too grippy, to be honest... :unsure: At the moment it sits quietly in the garage waiting for April since the snow has arrived and lying 5" deep here in Gothenburg... I am
  3. Thanks everyone for valuable input - much appriciated :)
  4. @ utkinpol: very interesting thoughts, thank you for sharing! You describe very clearly your reasoning process and I have full understanding for your choices. In my case I have at the moment no ambition to treat the car as an overgrown Lego toy (although when you describe it it sounds actually quite tempting... :) ) I don't consider myself mechanically challenged - I have raced both karts and MX-bikes and therefore spent a few hours with a spanner in my hand. But I think the Porsche won't need similar endless hours in the garage... ;) At the moment my first option is still the C2S - it m
  5. Hi guys, thanks a lot for all input - much appriciated!! :thankyou: Judging from the majority of replies, I should continue and try to make financial room for an S (with Sports Chrono...). Going with a C2 would probably have me constantly wondering what a C2S would be like... The price difference here is something like $15000 so it's not neglectable. At the same time that money would probably not take me far in converting a C2 to have more performance. I have driven a 997 C4 and was impressed by the performance, if not scared to death. So that's why I so far proritized a C2S. But I
  6. Great, thanks Loren! I didn't know that the gear ratios and the final drive were the same between the two. For me, that's good because it means that all the extra performance in the engine will be available as extra performance in the car, and not for enabling a slighter longer final drive in order to gain a little fuel milage (which is the current trend among automakers here in Europe... :huh: ) Has anyone driven the two back-to-back and could describe differences felt behind the wheel? Thanks!
  7. Hi! First post on this forum... :) I am a 41-year old looking to buy my first Porsche. As many others, I've dreamed about a 911 since I was a kid and now it seems I could have the possibility to fulfil my dream. The plan is to replace my current boat with a Porsche during next year. I will use it maybe not as a daily driver (for that purpose the Volvo does a good job... :rolleyes: ) but will try to drive a couple of days a week to work and maybe one or two track days over a year. I've narrowed it down to 997, 2006 or newer. So far, I've only looked for C2S cars but I've realised th
