I feel like full ppf is very important. A respray is almost impossible to get right, better to just protect oem paint from the beginning

The GTS has a cretinous side which is very endearing.

Yup. Getting quotes for full body PPF.

In the US it's 5k, but in countries with cheaper labor it's much less

Hmmm. Maybe I should have shipped it to a lower cost labour region! Sadly the UK quite high.

congrats!

i agree, definitely an event to drive. always feels special. seems more fun than a .1 GT3 to me as well, i think it's the torque and handling balance. GTS has much more torque which equates to a more fun street car. rear end def gets squirrely but, crucially, it's extremely easy to catch and feels "natural" to slide with no real violent snaps. but the smoother you are with your inputs the better as well. the car's got layers.

the low torque clinical nature of the GT3 made it less fun for me on the street. the sound though was epic. either car is awesome but as usual i look at use case and for street use i think you'll really enjoy the GTS.

Thanks @786

Really happy with the car, it is currently getting PPF'd, then will be collecting and taking some longer drives!
