    Was going back and forth between this and an 812 but I couldn't wrap my head around paying more than 2x the price for the 812 especially when I plan to DD this along with my incoming Taycan Turbo S.

    Barely used with 3900 miles and a bunch of options, the sticker is ~390K.

    Just looking at exhaust mods now, maybe a tune but not sure if it's worth it or not.

    Beautiful car. Did you buy from a dealer or private party?

    From my local dealer. I got them to add 2 years of warranty with it as well - end of year blue light special. :)

    Good call on both. I may have Forgeline build me some custom wheels as well, maybe go 20/21 with some more rubber upfront and in the rear.

    Beautiful car congrats!
    My vote is to keep it stock with the exception of exhaust. I was super close to getting your exact car a couple months ago but ended up with same color combo in 488 spider. My goal will be to add the F12 in a couple years.
    Super nice
    You’ve got to be stoked
    Cheers

    What suspension tune exactly? Don't think you would get much from a tune on a NA car, no? Change the exhaust seems right. Nice car!

    Just dropping it a bit, I dont think I would do anything more than that with the suspension. Engine and TCU tunes are bringing some additional power and performance but I'm not sure its worth it. I will probably change the exhaust though.

    Leave it alone, it is a great car like it is. I went through the same thought process, there was a Titanium/cuoio 812 at the same dealer that was calling my name but I decided that the extra 100k was a little much. I put 8000 miles on it this year. When it gets to 50,000 I will sell it and get one of the many 812's with 3000 miles...Malcolm

    It really is a beautiful car, I was hoping to take it out today but the rain has been relentless. I dont think I will put 8000 miles a year on mine as I have other cars but I do plan to use it as often as possible.

    Congrats... Do sport cats and X-pipe. Don't bother with mufflers. You won't gain much. Sport cats give you lots of power and sound. No CEL either. I have that set up and I'm very happy.

    I have Kline 200 cell sport cats and Capristo X-pipe with valve controllers.

    I have never felt the need to close the valves to quiet it. No drone in the cabin whatsoever. It's literally perfect IMO. At cruise it puts nicely, when you hammer it, it wails like am angry monster.

    Then I did a tune and added some pops and burbles... I couldn't be happier. I have some vids on my instagram (Pazzo009)

    I wouldn’t do sports cats to start with. Go x-pipe from Capristo, novitec or similar and take it from there. Get a valved version with remote control. It’s enough for many.
