Good Afternoon All,
I have recently joined the PCGB club. I dont have a car yet but I am actively looking to purchase in the next few months.
I am hoping to find a nice 997 turbo circa 2007, looking at the ones around.. they all seem much of a muchness (Lovely), what I will need is 
an expert to view the car and give me an appraisal, can anyone recommend a company that can do that? I live in Bristol and of course would be happy to pay for this service.
thanks,
Martin

Hi. First posting to the forum - hello! Had this 997.2 GTS now for almost 2 years and, although I really liked the standard black colour for the alloys, I thought the car might better suit something less contrasty and so took the plunge and had them refurbished recently to satin silver. I really like the result - although I appreciate style choices can split opinion! Anyway - great to be part of the Forum.

Love the centrelock wheels and they suit the colour/car very well; IMO a much better choice than black - go od decision!

Thanks, Whitewater! Appreciate that. Always a bit of a worry when making a significant cosmetic change.  I also got a new set of centre caps in black (with coloured crest) to replace the original silver ones. I couldn't source any for the 997 - but I found that a set for the 991 GTS were the same size and fitted perfectly. Couldn't afford to run out to anodising the centre locks black as well (yet!!).

That looks spot on! I’ve been thinking about doing the same with mine but not sure it will carry the wow factor yours has quite as well, especially with standard S wheels.

Agree .. it's hard to know what it will turn out like .. but I can vouch that it makes no difference to the performance!  My thinking was that black wheels on a white car can tend to catch the eye a bit and so distract your focus away from the car? Attached is a picture of the car as purchased - from the heady days when you could just go out and drive them whenever you wanted - and I think if you compare the before and after pictures you can see what I mean?
ps not sure how to avoid getting two images uploaded .. and I can see others have had that issue before too ..

personally I think it looks better now. i Couldn’t of uploaded a worse photo and now struggling to change it. I can’t see it working on mine, but imagine a set of the below might look ok. (Soz couldn’t upload photo)

I did also look into purchasing a new set of alloys - but really glad I went down the refurb route .. £600 (ex VAT) for all 4 done to perfection by Alloy Hub near Leek. Wouldn't have had anywhere to put the old set, in any case! attached is a picture of a white 997 (cabriolet) with the wheels you linked to I think ... in case that helps?
