Hi Erik et al,

I have been reading your website forum over the past 6 months and have found it extremely interesting and informative. I too have come over from the other side; having owned a Porsche 911 Turbo 2 for several years I finally took the plunge six months ago and bought a 97 355 GTS in titanium. Car has 15k miles, sports exhaust and red calipers.

Impressions so far have been extremely favourable in comparison to the 911. The noise just brings a smile to my face everytime I use it (I agree with a previous comment that the GTS allows the driver to really hear the engine without sacrificing rigidity; yes it does squeak with the roof on !). The handling can not be faulted; it goes round corners at speeds that defy physics. And I still take the dust cover off when I'm in the garage for no other reason that to appreciate the looks...I'm sure other owners know what I mean.

In response to your question on tyres; I replaced all four of mine on purchase; it still had the original 4 on which were unsurprisingly cracking. The mechanic who services the car recommended P zeros and so I am happily wearing them away at every opportunity.

Well enjoy the 355 Erik and I look forward to swapping advice and experiences.
