Hi chaps,

So I collected my car today. Yay! So now I have it in my custody I can lift the radio silence on it after what happened to the last one.

Only have a couple of photos as I just got it home but I will take more over the next few days. And what a day to collect it, I had the roof down on the way home, 18 degrees.

Metallic blue with Agate/pebble grey interior.

Has a great spec:
PDK
Sport Chrono
Auto dimming mirrors
individual AC
PASM
PCM, bluetooth, SatNav etc
Bose
Park assist front and rear
Bi-Xenon inc PDLS
20 Inch wheels
14 way seats, heated
Cruise Control
Folding mirrors
Power Steering plus
Extended Leather

Probably some stuff I can't remember. Only things it doesn't have are Sport Plus seats and Sports Exhaust.

I have plans! Stay tuned for updates coming fast. Haha

Welcome to the 981 club Thumb

Spec looks ace + sport steering wheel which is a massive must have with pdk ! Drive it in manual as much as you can, takes a bit to get used to until you just know which gear your in but then it's sooooooooo much fun Wink

Well done and enjoy

Thanks gents, I’m very happy so far. Been out a couple of times in it and am enjoying the gearbox, getting used to the benefits of being able to switch between auto and manual as it suits the traffic etc

Looks fabulous. That is a great colour combination. No easy thing on a 981, which is why black interiors are so common (IMHO).

I'm a fan of Porsche 14 / 18 way seats. They may not be the purists choice, but they certainly score for great comfort. Silly price new so a nice option to get on a used car thumbsup

I'll be interested to know how you get on with PDK and how often you really drive it in manual mode!

I reckon a major tweak on the exhaust & GOLD alloys against the blue will look great Very Happy

Full leather makes such a big difference to the 981 interior. That car had nearly every option ticked, great find

Really enjoyed the car today, took it for a few trips just to get into the way of things. I love the little extras such as the wheel moving up and the seat back as I get out of the car. I also love the separate AC controls. My lady is from South America and in this weather is always cold so often secretly turns up the heat until my feet are melting off so having individual controls is great.

Car drives very well and is properly quick when you floor it.

So I’ve already enquired about a sports exhaust upgrade. First quote I had from a specialist is £2100, but I’m going to talk to Wilmslow tomorrow and see if they can do better. Also going to see about possibly having a GTS exhaust fitted whilst I’m at it. The car already sounds great, just a bit too quiet for me. Should be able to get this wrapped up before I go back to sea so I’m excited about that.

Other mods planned for the future:
Apple CarPlay
Custom sports seats upgrade (more to come on that)
Exterior GTS aesthetic mods
Possible wheel change (maybe in Weiss gold, haha)

Hi - do tell how you plan to get Apple CarPlay working on a 981? I was told it was impossible 😕
