From M6 to 997tt

Sold my M6 a few weeks ago and finally picked up my dream car (well one of them at least). It is a 2007 997tt, Slate Grey with full Cocoa interior. So far the only mods that I have made to it are a short shifter kit, clear corners, interior and exterior LED kilt, LED fog lights, BMC filter, H&R springs, H&R spacers and bolts, and Dension 500S kit, Dectane LED Tail Lights. I plan to do exhaust, tune and wheels soon. So far I love the car, super fast and handles like a dream. I do miss a lot about the M6 though, the sound of that high revving V10 is like no other.

Thanks Mike! It delivers power much differently then the M6 so it is hard to say. It feels much faster. i cannot wait to do the exhaust and tune as it will add another 100 horses.

Congrats man. Best move. It is a lot faster than a stock M6, handles better and brakes A LOT BETTER.
Trust me, I own three Gemballa Porsche's and they are work of art.

Add a tune and an exhaust, add some Champion Monolite or BBS FI wheels and call it the day.
Ohh, I would suggest H&R sway bars also.

Beautiful car.

George
