New to 944T not new to porsche

Hey all,
Been here forever over in the 930 arena, but now have a 944Turbo too.

I'm sure the rules are the same as on the 930 forum "If you don't show a photo your car is not real" so here you go. Bought it off a stand up guy over on Rennlist.

Stunning. I wish you miles of smiles with your new toy (previous Gig Harbor resident).

Super clean!! Congrats on the buy! Both are totally two different beasts.... How do you compare driving them?
My 951 is super fun to drive. The 951 on its time was a very modern car and interior wise more appealing. Plus very well balanced handling!

Hope you enjoy it

Driving comparison the 2 cars are diametrically opposed. Although right now the 951 is way to softly sprung and too small of sway bars for my liking. This will be cured fairly shortly.

The 951 is smooth and well balanced, well behaved and forgiving...the 930 is the 951's temperamental red headed step child...say no more.

Both are a blast to drive, but where I could drive the 951 half asleep, if I tried that with the 930 it would bite me in the ass.

LOL!!! True!

Just in case I have LEDA Coil Overs and really like the feel of it. Comes out of the curves pretty hard versus the Koni yellow setup I had.

ENJOY!!

Go to "Klearz" web site, however they are hit-n-miss if they are in stock, make sure to look in their clearance section as well.

It would appear that they might be dropping these from their product line, so I would act fast.

They have front turns signal as well, and those appear to be a regular product line.

I just did a 5% smoke film on the side markers, better blends with the body color, I did the back up light lens as well...looks sooooo much better!

I'll post a picture or two, once it stops raining where I'm at.

Pictures of tint work

As the title says, pictures of tint work, sorry for the dirty car. Side markers and back-up lights done in 5% smoke.

I know this is an older thread, but LEDA caught my eye, as I have them on my 951S. Do you have the adjustable coilovers? Just curious as to the settings you use on track. Any tips or recommendations would be appreciated!

Thanks!
