Great looking car. How did you disable the seat belt chime?

Very nice! Is the windshield tinted too? Mine looks like it's darker than it should be but I'm not sure if it was tinted by the original owner. Other windows' tint film installation looks flawless, so it's hard to know about the windshield.
Bet u love that wheel color when u wash the car. I love mine. Drove mine 800 miles and a couple of washes over 5 weeks b4 bothering to clean my wheels. Could not see any brake dust or dirt, but they sure were dirty.

for the seat belt chime, you gotta go to a race shop (one that installs race seats etc) that has durametric pro. It can be done (i dont know exactly what the options are that need to be set). it also gets rid of the light in the dash for the belt and the annoying loud chime when you first put the key in the ignition, or unclip your belt in your driveway etc.

nice grey 987!

how is the R suspension compared to stock?
I like the effect of the spyder grills, makes the car look quite different.

The R suspension is quite possibly the best mod i've done. Its was more expensive installed than some of the aftermarket options, but im extremely happy with it.

Its simply perfect. Not too stiff, perfect ride height and aesthetics, makes the car feel even better in the curves without being overly aggressive and difficult to drive (if you're not a pro race car driver). I drove a cayman with eibach springs and PSS9's before deciding on going the route of the R setup and very glad i did. Porsche knows what they are doing, and with this setup, even the alignment / camber etc is all within factory spec (no need to change toe links or be on the outer limits of camber settings and what not.) btw... per my local P-dealer, it also keeps my factory warranty.

Great looking car!

I need to do the X73 for mine, but also need the 3.8L X51, center rad, big brakes, intake and exhaust, PTV, etc. Maybe a lightweight flywheel. Don't quite have the $50k yet! In the meantime a Cayman S is an awesome street car, and a lot of fun.

Car looks stunning. I'm partial to meteor gray though

How did you make the spoiler stay up all the time?
