Wheels look spot on.

Great update video.

You asked for ideas on mods....

Have you thought about the red/black interior??

IMHO this really sets the RS apart from the rest?

I never liked the red and black interior. If I was going to have it, it would have been whilst changing the interior to where it is now.

I preferred the black, although I kind of like it now! Haha

That was my original plan to go to 9e or similar. But I’m not sure I’ll do that now, the car is pretty fastas it is. Still scares me! Maybe in the future...

Everything I have done to my car has been model specific, 918 seats would look weird in my car.

My folding carbon buckets are excellent. They are super comfortable (did a 2,500 mile trip to South of France) and they fold so you can get stuff in the back if you need extra space. Also I sat in the other model specific seats when I was driving the Carrera GT around the south of France, too tight for my frame really.

I have just spent New Year’s Day on the sofa reading this from the beginning. What a great way to spend an afternoon. (Or several years in your case) Great project thread and what an amazing car.

Thanks for the comments above, sorry never got back to you before.

So I just got the car out of storage and took her for a spin to get the cobwebs out. Well, I can only say wow, after driving my 981 Boxster S for the last few months and thinking that was fast, I had a real eye opener! Car felt great, started first time, didn't smoke, was just great to drive. And I managed to find a gap in the rain to do it!

I was looking back over the early posts on this thinking about the brakes.
When you did the centre lock conversion, did you have to change the brake disks to suit? Or do the originals fit over the new hubs?

Reason I ask is it's been in my head to change to a gen.2 GT3, & if I picked one up with centre lock wheels & no PCCB, I'd look at fitting my ceramics as they were retro fitted to the turbo..

If you have ceramics you only need to change the hubs. The discs work with the new hubs. It’s only the steels that need new discs. Don’t know how that will translate for you though.

Reason being there are two kits, one for steel discs and one for ceramics. Worst case scenario you’d have to buy a new hub kit (£1200 ish)

If I have it right steel disc will need replacing with a centre lock retro fit but PCCB do not.

I see, I think...

Do you mean I would need the stainless bells of the ceramics to suit the centre locks? Or new centre lock hubs to suit my existing disks?

I was under the impression that maybe the original bells might fit over the CL hubs as they have a decent clearance in the centre bore.
