I had a 991 S.  Best thing I did was get the DSC V3 suspension controller.  The suspension settings in normal mode were way to harsh IMHO.  The DSC V3 allows the suspension controllers to use more of their adjustability so that normal was very nice on the street while still allowing much firmer settings for the track.  Transformed the car from something I didn't enjoy driving to something I loved.

My neighbor has a 987.1 with the Sport Exhaust and it's LOUD and drones hard.

FWIW that's a completely different engine. Not saying that it's not possible, but I wouldn't say that's an indicator that the .2 version is going to be bad. About as useful of a data point, the 981 sport exhaust is awesome, if I had the budget I'd add it to my car.

Such is the way with exhaust noises, so much comes down to individual ears and preferences.  I really wanted to love mine, and did for the first few weeks.  After a while it just wore me out.  For comparison, my current ND Miata has a race exhaust that's basically a resonated straight pipe and I absolutely love it.

Normal service (by my standards) appears to have resumed.

I'm out of town and my wife has been using the 997 as her Jeep is in the shop for not quite yet diagnosed suspension issue.

Apparently it's sitting in the garage playing possum with a suspected dead-ish battery. At least it's sitting in the garage, but given that it did that after regular use, I'm not sure that charging up the battery and hoping for the best is the right way to go about anything but exercise the AAA membership.

Oh well, I'm supposed to be home Saturday morning, although "fix the reliable German vehicle" wasn't on the plan for the weekend.
