@Dante : Nice car you got there man. I have a question. Why is only the driver side mirror in dual tone and not the passenger side mirror?

Dude your Porsche looks sick! Nice job with the powder coating.

Just noticed that your plates read MH15..and your location Nasik. Want to have the time of your life? Leave at 0600 hours, drive to Dhingra Dhaba (Shahapur) and back. The new 1-way Igatpuri ghat is made for your car. I was doing 100 kph in a fast corner in the Linea T-Jet and had an absolute blast over that stretch; the Cayman will blow your mind.

Now we are waiting for Dante to get a pro camera fixed in the car and give us an envious footage

Lovely set of wheels Dante, where did you get this done? It now has the looks.

Thanks GTO. This should wake him from slumber and we can get treated on weekly basis. You are also igniting fire in me to wake up early and put some miles on my car that is driven once a week now a days. 0430 hrs to TD Tject was inspirational; and I decide to visit my office in Delhi tomorrow 0600 hrs. Cheers!

Just one suggestion for you on alloys (If you don't mind), yellow lip on the wheels could be a bit thinner! May be half of what you have now.

Other than that, Yellow Porsche running on black wheels... mmmmmm!

And how come one rear view mirror is yellow and the other is yellow/black?
Suggestions are always welcome my friend. About the lip, i wish it was thinner but not possible since the lip area had such a width that it was not possible to paint only half of it yellow and leave the other black.

Were these mods done through Porsche or by a third party? And what is Porsche's attitude towards third party/after-market mods?
Only the wheels are painted. The RVM and spoiler are matte vinyl by me and my uncle. (i can do such wraps!) Its so good anyone can be fooled by thinking it as a paint.

Thanks. Because i was not having a great amount of time to do the other RVM. But it will be done very soon.

Well if your are not aware i always drive on nasik-bombay highway. And igatpuri ghats are my personal favs! Even with traction on, there's a bit of tyre roll on steep turns, well thats the fun part.

Would yellow brake calipers be a sensible and feasible option? I feel they would complete the look.
Cool job nonetheless, car looks even more stunning now.

Yellow brake calipers come only in ceramic composite option.
Even though i can paint them yellow I prefer red, it makes a contrast look.

You've just made a good looking car, even better Dante! She looks fabulous! The yellow piping against the red calipers are quite contrast, it's awesome! Good deal, dude!

So what is your next move?

Thanks. I was thinking you didn't see the pics.

Anyway no plans i guess. Just a good exhaust but don't want to void the warranty, so atleast waiting till i get it serviced for the first time.

Congrats Manish!

We are seeing more Caymans now, world wide the strength of the car has won admiration from the most hardcore 911 fans.

I am dreaming to get one really soon in India. Maybe next year seems more like it.
