My Porsche 911 (997.2): Benefits of 18 inch wheels & other updates

I am finding it easier and more effective to drop a couple of gears to alert other drivers to give way compared to the tedious job of pressing the horn.

BHPian androdev recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Switch to 18" wheels is turning out to be a great decision. I am being more carefree now and able to keep up with other cars on Bangalore roads ridden with potholes and bumps. With 19", I was driving more cautiously and still ended up with a damaged tire. The ride and rattle situation has also improved significantly. Looks department has taken a total beating but since I have decided to aim for old classic charm, it is not such a disaster.

It may sound strange but given the recent crazy increase of petrol prices, XP100 staying fixed at Rs 160 per litre seems like a favour from the Govt. I have no idea why XP100 price doesn't change like that of regular petrol, it has been Rs 160 since launch.

I am finding it easier and more effective to drop a couple of gears to alert other drivers to give way compared to the tedious job of pressing the horn. Vroom OK please. I was waiting at a traffic signal and the reversing lights on the car in front me came on. I paid dearly in the past due to absent minded drivers letting the cars roll back and reverse, etc. My natural reaction was to panic, but the car didn't move. I figured that the driver turned on the reverse camera to get a CCTV view of my car. Phew!

We visited a relatives place few days ago and their pet dog bit my son. It was a very mild bite without any cut/bleeding but we were advised to get the rabies shots. Four of them! Porsche ƎƆИA⅃UꓭMA to the rescue!
