New to me 997.1 TT tip

Hey guys,

Havent had a 997TT before had 2 996TTs and a lot of other cars....
Bought this one few weeks ago... gonna be removing the custom headers, Kline exhaust and Fabspeed intake. and go back STG1..
have an appt at Porsche to reflash to stock the ECU was locked with a file... I will have it re-tuned once the stock parts are in.. the headers kinda hanging a bit too low...the cars not even lowered yet and front scrapping everywhere....
Anyone know the car? the tail, front lip and CH-R wheels are great...but not the center caps..lol!
a couple blemishes like the cluster digital display, temp control which is normal.. I will change the steering wheel soon to the PDK one..
Everyone tells me Kline is one of the best was wondering if its the custom JDL headers causing the drone, i dont see JDL makes headers for German cars..
or maybe its not Kline... it looks like Kline when i looked underneath....
here are some pics i just removed the tint...lol

Congrats & I'd keep the steering wheel ,it's aftermarket but a very nice one & you won't be happy with a stock looking wheel if you get one ,seems weird the front bumper is drilled for a European license plate is the car gray market import maybe & I'd ditch the headers before the exhaust if it's is Kline .

then reflash.....

Pabwal is an unknown quantity at this point
Very nice car, i saw it a few weeks back in Livermore if I’m not mistaken? I have just got myself one, fairly local to you so may have to bend your ear on local places to get work done etc.
