(as a 996 owner, I'm allowed to talk sh*t about the other "unloved" among us)
I am also allowed to talk because I am a former 928 owner, and this is the best comment although I made money off my car (SUCKER).

Well, we had seven 928 owners at PCA breakfast, but only 6 cars as one was in the shop (shocker, I know). Then, only 5 made it over to the museum for cars and coffee. But, not a bad turnout for short notice.

Glad to see at least 2 had good taste in colors even if their automotive choices as suspect :lol:

The first badly colored one looks like it has one of the wheels you were considering for the TT, did you get a good look at them?

28.6% attrition rate seems normal from all the snarky comments here.

Actually 80% would be normal. This was a good turn out indeed!

Yep, I noticed that, too. They look good in person. Definitely would be a solid choice. That being said, the other option comes in 8.5 and 11 inch widths and a lighter color than my current wheels and are less expensive. So, I am 90% sure I'm going with them.
