Thank you for that link shawn, I'm actually going to order that lip spoiler! The clear euro spec directionals I had the dealer do right before I took it home.

Just had 20" HRE's installed yesterday morning, thanks to the offset, the car looks a bit more aggressive with the tire lined up exactly with the fender.

Thanks, I'm trying to decide between either the original blue/red/white caps that are on now or the black/silver ones. They gave me both. I got a small discount, $6200 for 4 rims, not including tires of course.

They both work...

The blue/red/white is traditional HRE and look good with the red brakes.

Black/silver are clean looking and subtle....this would be my choice on black wheels.

Were they discounted because there appears to be a scratch on the spoke facing down on the left side?

IMHO one of the nice things about the 911 is that it's a big car on the inside, given how small it is. The front seat of a 911 isn't much different spacewise from a modern sedan. I dare say it is roomy. The rear seats are tight, but at least you have room for baby seats or luggage/shopping/junk.

Looks like a scratch right? Actually its the grease the wheel shop uses to install tires. See how little you know about anything automotive josh? Have a seat on my lap sometime and I'll school you.

The 991 is actually longer and wider than the outgoing 997. You get an inch more of legroom, not a lot but its welcome. I'm actually very comfortable inside, its not like a panamera roomy, but it looks like it asthetically.

Looked like a scratch to me. My second guess was going to be that you dropped a french fry on it while eating lunch and hanging up laundry to dry.

Classic porsches are cool but owning 3 series and 3D's have given me enough wrenching time. Plus remember I'm only trying to get bitches with my car, not to collect.

I think the point was that you could buy a car for the cost of replacing perfectly good rims with those

So how's the car doing on the bitches front? Worth it?

Well I'm meeting up with 2 bitches from Georgia tonight, my friend says one is hot and thin, the other is a little thick but has a beautiful face, he said he would fuck them both, including the thicker one. I've never met them but they know my friend, he's friends with a lot of famous dj's / singers. Lately he's been kicking it with christian burns. I met BT & Blake Lewis through him.
