    I was at the launch party the other day. The clutch was as stiff as a CGT. There had to have been somthing worng with the clutch because the other Turbos are nowhere neer that hard. But none of the other turbos ever came with this much power.
    Very cool car. I love how when you open the doors you can get a very good impression as to how thick thoes tires are. They are damn thick if you were wondering.

    A bit, otherwise I like the car. And I'm sure you can select from a few different kinds of rims.

    One showed up this morning at our weekly Santana Row gathering in NorCal. There are a few pics of it in the thread over there...looked pretty sick with the black wheels. Look at the bottom of Post #7 in the following thread:

    i think the wheels on the turbo look just fine. however the wheels on the CGT are discusting.
    if it were my car (it never would be) i wouldnt touch a thing on it.

    I don't really like the front turn signals either. I think the wheels look pretty good though. I think they look better than any of the other 997 wheels so far. Anyway, I'm sure there will be optional wheels available soon. The 997 TT looks sick! It looks much sharper than the 996.
