It's not perfect. Just to keep things a little real, there's still plenty to fettle. The uprated Porsche RS suspension was designed for a much heavier car and tries to bounce this lighter version off the road. After a while, the seat is overly-kinky in relation to the steering wheel and pedals, and feels over-plumped. The brakes - though powerful and reliable - need a decent bleed, and the pedals require adjustment to allow for heel-and-toe gearchanges for the full immersive experience. But these are small things, easily fixed - that would be adjusted to suit the prospective owner's particular taste. My taste, if I can possibly have anything to do with it.
