Trading in my 991 C2 with a GT3

Recommended Posts

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

Very nice.

 

The seat belts are an easy swap. Your dealership can do this now problems. The belts are about $700 per set (for front and back). Plus labor. They are available in red, yellow, and silver. I have the silver belts in my 991 C2S X51. They are very nice.

 

The LED lights are NOT plug & play. I also have these, and they are great. I got them because I wanted the halo DRL's. And the coolness factor.:) Your lights look great, because they are black (right?) and work great with your white car. The Bi-xenons are awesome. The LEDs are not much (if any) better. PDLS is great, if you have that option (mainly the dynamic cornering).

 

Enjoy your new car.

 

Did yours require the engine swap?

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
