Generally, before i look at wheels, bodykits, headlights, or exhaust - i take a look at the brakes.

I agree that you can get kits which make it incredibly difficult to tell the cars apart, however, most posers spend the money on the cosmetic upgrades (bodykit, wheels, badges, & maybe exhaust) however they neglect a performance upgrade on the brakes, since if they were so keen on performance enhancements they probably would have bought the one-model-up version in the first place.
Looking at the calipers, disc size, disc type (crossdrilled etc) can usually help point out a poser pretty quickly when other cues may fail.

ab1xlr8,

That is not a GT2, hence posts moved to the correct thread.

Rehaan, that thread doesn't have a picture of the car I saw. The latest I saw in the showroom was a dark blue or black 911.

Guys, I saw the black/Dark blue GT3 again day before yesterday. This time in bandra. It still has the Black Wheels With the chrome lip. Come on fellows, Please tell me what i am seeing. It had the Exhaust coming out from the center and the Front bumper like in the pics. I didnt get a close look as i was diving.

Yes, but my point was that you didnt see a white GT3 convertible - you (probably) saw a white 997 turbo cabriolet. The link points to a post of someone else who also says they saw the same thing - "a white turbo cab". (cab = cabriolet = convertible).
The GT3 doesnt have a convertible version - hence i was directing you to a more appropriate thread to post your sighting / discuss further.

Rehaan, GTA does state that the dark Porsche he saw had an exhaust in the middle...which is obviously not the case with the 996 C4 that Sahir has. Is GTA seeing things or is there actually another black/blue on black 996/7 GT3?!

This is NOT the car i saw. The car I saw had 5 spoked black wheels with a Chrome lip. Not these. And yes, the exhaust did come out of the center. A few minuites after i saw the car, my friend called me up saying he saw a Porche. Now that frind doesnt know much about cars but knew it was a porche.
