Yes that is probably a good idea. The funny thing is , once I correct these few items I suspect I won't be able to pull the trigger.
Might rethink this as the more I look at it, I think I may regret it . Too much work to replace it if I get sellers remorse.
May just start looking for a cayman or Cayman S of similar value and buying first before selling the 911. Not the end of the world if it sits in storage for a summer and as my astute 12 year old days, the 911 is just getting more valuable the longer I hold onto it. He also says buy Roblox at IPO so listen up.
Might have to let the next generation fight over this one.

You're sounding like Geronimo on sugarwood's Japanese car thread, except he's still on the fence, wanting to dump his 911 because he's in love with Japanese cars. Just the opposite actually.

Well dropped it off today too get the couple little exterior nicks repaired before it goes into storage for the winter. Will be ready in spring with a zero flaw exterior and ordering new leather for the seats. If I change my mind over the winter at least the car will be as cosmetically close to 100% as is reasonable for a 36 yr old car.
I always figured that when the motor eventually needed an overhaul I would twin plug and go 3.4 L. That never happened as the engine has just always worked great. Only 10k miles in 10 years so I might be waiting a while yet for that if I keep it.

Nice car. Re-installing the original wheel would be a good investment.

The car came with the momo installed and I can't think of a better wheel for driving, personally I would take it over the oem wheel if given the choice. I never thought of purists who would be looking for the original porsche wheel . I believe I have it in a box of spare parts that came with the car when I bought it. Next owner can install it if they wish.
Would the porsche wheel actually be a positive in a sale versus a classic mono ?

The momo results in a $5k decrease in value for your car.
Merely supplying the OEM wheel is not enough.
Letting the next owner install the OEM wheel will still result in a $5k lower selling price for you.
Aftermarket wheel taints the entire presentation and ownership history.

Interesting , I never realized the momo would have such a dramatic impact. I guess I better put the original back on . Pretty good return on a few minutes work !

Don't bother. There's no way it'll have a $5K impact. He likes to blow things out of proportion.

I'd take the MOMO all day long over OEM. Just include the OEM in the deal. Zero impact on value having the MOMO installed.

He might be blowing it a bit out of proportion. Certainly will be worth your while. May not actually increase sale price, but will definitely increase the desirability.

I look at the pics of your car and the only thing that has been "messed with" is the wheel.

No, it's a $5k penalty.
Go check BAT for plenty of examples

Well since I have the OEM wheel I will install it.

I actually found a dealer within driving distance with a 2008 997.1 S manual with 48k miles in good condition at what appears to be a reasonable price . This is a very rare occurrence in my area so am seriously looking at that car as a possible buy or trade in option. Drove the car yesterday and worked great just need a PPI.
I was planning on searching for a 997.2 to avoid IMS issues but having a 997.1 option in my area is very tempting

You will get hosed on any trade-in value to a dealer
