Welcome, you're sure to enjoy the car! Your Porsche education is just beginning if this is your first one.

I went from a near 400 hp '93 RX-7 (12 years) to a '99 C2 (3 months, not enough car coming out of the RX-7) to a '96 993TT (1 year) to the GT3. Tracked the RX-7 and the 993TT, and wondered why people said driving a Porsche was a learning experience. My addled brain didn't understand the 993TT AWD implications.

When I first took the GT3 onto the track, I was quickly humbled. Can you say "lift throttle oversteer!" I had a blast learning how to drive all over again.

For what parts are you looking?

Welcome, Loony!!

Nice looking car. Looks like you have a non-stock exhaust (or tips, at least), and the center rad vents in the front bumper.

currently just some miscelaneous trim pieces to replace scratched or worn bits. but the one specific item i can list is the Fischer CD storage cmpartment. i need a new one as the existing one has a crack in it.

Hi there

I have an identical 04 GT3 CS - in black - in Perth

This is the car just sold by QSM yes?

FYI - the slots in the top of the bumper are the same as for a GT3 RS - ie the Cup Car bumper

- the car also has some S/S gear rings if I remember?

Other mods worth considering:

- shocks - Bilstein PSS9's

- Star racing exhaust - keep your existing one for road use!

- single mass flywheel

- RS carbon wing

Lots of fast GT3s here in Perth - 996 & 997

The Porsche Club in Oz have booked BATHURST over Easter!

- join us!

cheers

Justin
