Yew Lip in conjunction with BVO may be able to do it. If i am not wrong, BVO started servicing 997s a couple of years ago.

 

Thanks for the welcome, M.

i'm unlikely to join any event, it's just not something i do.

not with VolvoSG , BMW.SG, SG Merc nor Porsche club.

I really dont enjoy huge meetups in general.

 

yeah When i was still driving my 6er i started seeing 911s at BVO couple of years back.

I guess it must be more refined than the 997....

the lines take the lead from the panamera and does really bring out the modern look.

even the interior is like the panamera, very refine.

 

i'll wait another 18 mths.... [;)]

 

The 991 has a clean minimalistic exterior and a super sweet, sumptuous interior. The latter borrows elements from the panamera while still retaining the youthful and sporty vibe. I really enjoy the smooth pdk transmission and the rev matched downshifts especially in sport and sport plus mode. The induction sound when you push it past 4000 rpm is also quite addictive. It feels literally like a fighter jet taking off. The only downside is that the steering is not as chatty and communicative as in the 997. But it still feels very competent especially when cornering fast.

Me neither. I enjoy smaller meetups with a select group of like minded folks.

Hmmm must be my clone. I wasn't near the mohd sultan area last sat night. But i must say there are not too many 991s on the road yet. Saw a white one the other day on middle road but with different rims (stock carrera S rims) driven by an AM who looked quite surprised to see me

You saw my ad on bmw-sg? Guards red is certainly not everyone's cup of tea. The color shows off the curvy lines of the car very well. The carrera being a small car also tends to suit the brighter colors. However someone who prefers a fiercer, more masculine, and perhaps more tactical look will probably want to go with the darker or metallic colors. Thankfully the car is now with a new owner who as far as i can tell is lavishing it with the care and attention that it deserves.

 

Raymond right? He called me and asked if got lobang for no plate. Told him to leave it as it is else ppl will spot you everywhere.

How about servicing the 991?

I hear it's a pain becos everything is tucked so nicely and hidden.

To access the engine bay area, got to remove a few covers already.

 

Is that true, I haven't done much research on the 991 yet, everything is more or less hear say.

Dont quite understand it, M3s, GTRs, Lambos, Ferraris, Masers, dont try to race me.

 

But in the last few weeks, i keep on getting B&B saabs and audis trying to prove a point.

Just now on Pie again, a Saab 93. And much earlier an A5. And also a 320i.

Even a toyota celicar??

I cant help but think that these people who buy small turbo cars really got inferiority complex.

 

I was just cruising at 80-90km/hr leh.

 

I am so scared, i think i am going to change to an S class.

 

Help!

Heh

a lot of people have the perception that porsches are not that fast. some would try their luck and hassle for a street race.

They were trying to edge me for a race, got nothing to do with hogging.

Cruising at 80-90 km/hr in perfectly matching traffic = model driver

But perhaps, I should try hogging for fun.
