Hi all, just posting as I have recently bought a 1990 C2 targa and thought I should sign up and hopefully make use of this great forum.
I bought the car from Edinburgh 2 weeks ago, drove it back to Essex, 400m isn't bad for a test drive!
Car is pretty good but with a couple of very tiny rust bubbles, one on the front & other on the rear window just above the rubber seal, although it presents well.
It's done 126k, has beloved speed line wheels & linen interior in quite good condition.
I can't believe how tight it feels, I can smell some oil & im aware it needs a service as it was last done 2013 with 10k since so I'd appreciate anyone's help with a recommended specialist in Essex.
Looking forward to the ownership experience.
George.

Autostrasse (Coggeshall near Colchester) or DSD Motorwerks (Billericay or Great Dunmow).

Interestingly I hear that Design 911 have opened a centre in Brentwood.

And most of all Welcome

Thanks Rob.
Funny about DSD Motorwerks, I emailed & left messages but with no response, which is a shame considering they are the most local. I'll keep trying though.
