2000 Porsche 996 GT3 Mk1

PostPosted: Tue Dec 05, 2006 10:28 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

Just did the icelink FM thing to my CD22, will fit your 23 - not quite as good as was hoped but has ticked all the required boxes. Bloody becker head unit is too smart for its own good - was so annoyed during fitting that i was gonna replace it with a tape deck goodmans just to teach it a lesson! Can fill you in on the details if you like.

I found my mk1 a little different to the comfort mk2s i drove too, glad it wasn't just my imagination!

As for the cage - prob worthwhile for track use and look great too. Most alarming cost is for schroth harnesses which are about 250 per side iirc!!

count your self lucky you dont have a Club Sport which only has a pair of speakers up front, stereo is awful !!!


Can't agree Sundeep - my CS has six superb little speakers in the back - right at the back Wink

Don't bother investing in ICE - spend the money on an exhaust (I have PSE on mine) and you'll never turn the radio on! I always drive with the window down just to hear that sound Very Happy

Congrats on the purchase, I know I'm in the middle east but don't forget about me. On the subject of schroth harnesses, you can get the same ones from the states for about $250, set up an aramex account and they will deliver from the states just on weight(about 2kg per harness- about $24 shipping each) I order everything from the states and you pay dollars for pounds,ie half price at the moment. As for spending cash on the new toy, the best money you will ever spend is on driver training, have fun



Max.

Wait till you have kids ..... that also cry if you say you're selling the Porsche!

Do you think the GT3 is becoming more popular now because they're fast becoming affordable and / or are actually rarer and more exclusive than other 996 variants?

No doubting that it is also a very good sports car.

Only 4 seats though so maybe the rest of us will have to find another place to play.

Mind you, it wasn' long ago that this was 993uk so whats next?

Thanks Nicola - will do my best! Very Happy Dont know how i'm going to get moving shots without the soft-top in the Box - might use the rear spoiler :D

Anthony - my own reason for buying a GT3 is that I'd been after a 996 C2 or C4S after having a loan of a 997 for a week - sneaky Porsche marketing ploy!! The GT3 I only thought about with the launch of the new one and even though they are still pretty pricey I tried my best to find one for a good deal! Sooooooooo happy when I drove one for the first time yesterday and even after a passenger ride in Dunc's GT3 Mk1, I wasn't prepared for the driving experience - awsome!

I haven't felt this excited since placing the order for my first Porsche (a 2.7 987 Box) last year!!! :)

With you totally on this. That's why I bought Toy and why the 997C2S left such an impression. Felt like a different car from the 996 I'd driven before. I haven't driven a GT3 and as it doesn't have 4 seats, its not for me but I can appreciate why you'd want one. 996C4S appeals but really I need to drive one as I'm concerned it will feel heavy by comparison (but at least I'd stand more chance of staying on the road Embarassed ), leaving me as fed up as I am with the BMW.

Well done Steve....want to join in now but will need to find a roof rack for my son........I know most people add roll cages etc ....has anyone ever tried to put rear seats in a GT3? Allowed to have if it is child-friendly i.e. child-able-to-travel-in rear

Speed freak (daz) has recently bought a 3 and has been posting some good stuff on seats and also insurance which needs considering. Try catching up on the posts they will help a lot.

The 3 has the standard roof rack guides as far as I seen! Seen a 996 recenty with a large box on the roof!

Anthony - the 996 C4s is a great car! Almost bought one. It feels slightly heavier in terms of controls than my Boxster but I would say less heavy than a 997S - it runs 18" alloys which make it feel lighter at the wheel and more comfortable than the 997 in my view. The sports exhaust is great as well. I would say look at a Turbo - RSJ have one for 42 in blue and it looks great! Very practical and special + great residuals....

I have to say there are great buys with the 996 at the moment - I just can't believe what I've bought! Such a big step up from the Box, but I'm sure it will keep me learning for years to come!

what you'll find is that the weight lose on the 3 makes a real difference, I'm only just discovering it and still have yet to exploit 90% of the cars ability....

yes but Daz's 3's weight loss is negligible once he sits in it! Wink

I felt the 997 to be quite heavy - you really noticed the rear end weight - not so much on the 3 I felt - maybe just 996 v's 997? Still as excited as a schoolkid!!

BTW - apologies for the branding on the image but here are the roofbars for the 3 for anthony -

Note to Daz!

No more excuse for not taking the GT3 to LeMans!

Thanks for the info, had a search and found that dreams do come true ... you CAN get a 3 year old in the back of the best car in the world (IMHO)..

....did Daz ever post pics of the seat belts in the car??

cheers and ta
