Bader's 991 GT3 Build Thread.

Hello Everyone,
Hope all is well, a quick introduction I just got my 991 GT3 last week, so far in love with the car. Its my 1st Porsche, was between this and a BMW M6 Gran Coupe. In my country of Saudi Arabia, the dealer never ordered any GT3's. Only Carrera S/4S, & Tubros. Only GT3's in the country are the ones ordered by the clients themselves. So its safe to say the GT3 is rare in Saudi, I couldn't find any for sale, and the dealer couldn't order me any so I got one from Dubai.

Here are the plans for the car:
-Wheels to be painted gloss black.
-Car to be fully wrapped in another color.
-Carbon bits for the interior & exterior.
-Centerlock aftermarket forged wheels (recommend a style)
-Exhaust ( still deciding on which to get, recommendations?)

Before we go into the photos, I'd like to share pictures of my last project car. my 2008 Audi S5, this was my car when I was in the states. It had a complete makeover done a few times as seen below.



















& now we move on to the GT3, got a few questions before we move onto the photos.

-I have PCM, plugged my iphone 6 via bluetooth for calls. How come when I watch a video or get a text message on my phone I cant hear any sound? how can this be fixed?
-Dealer says to fill oil the car needs to be there for a full day, what oil can I use to fill up the car and how much do I put in if my oil level is on minimum?
-can anyone direct me into a direction where I can get an aftermarket rear view camera/ sensors?

& now finally the photos.














Will keep the thread updated.

Kind Regards,
Bader

Great GT3. I am partial to the white with red seat belts...That car is a different league than the S5.

I had a phantom black 6 speed 09 s5 as a DD back in the day it was the biggest piece of s**t I ever owned. Between the carbon cleaning, front control arms and lack of power it was embarrassing. The APR super charger was the only fix. I remember your car from A5OC though.

I am on my second 991 and both have been trouble free. Enjoy the new car in health.

So here is the latest update, about a few months ago I had a mini car accident which lead to the wrap being damaged on 1 side of the car. It did protect the car from getting scratched.
Also my parts came in, so I shipped my car to Bydesign Motorsport on the eastern region of Saudi. I just got it back a few days ago, and this is the outcome.

Mods:
-HRE P101 in Gloss Black
-Tire Stickers
-Stripes from 997 GT3RS 4.0 in Platinum Grey with Red outline , and 3.8 text instead of 4.0
-Akrapovic Sports Cup Line Exhaust
-Tech Art Steering Wheel (Thicker, Suede top & bottom, red 12 o clock ring & red stitching, perforated leather on the sides with red leather underneath that can be seen through the tiny holes, black painted paddles with the +/- in red)
-Custom Floor Mats (Carbon Fiber, Suede, GT3 Logo, and Red stitching)
-Rear View Camera
-Front Matte Carbon Fiber Splitter
-Rear Matte Carbon Fiber Valence
-Side Matte Carbon Fiber Side Blades
-Matte Carbon Fiber Mirrors
-Matte Carbon Fiber Wind Spoiler
-Carbon Fiber Dive Plates (to be installed)


The Delivery:









The Steering Wheel:





The Floor Mats: (excuse the sneaker marks)

=

Will keep you updated with any additions on the car.

Kind Regards,
Bader

The car looks great! Nice choice on wheels as well. I prefer it without the blue wrap.
