Hi Paul,

Wow! That is a fantastic spec. The Macan PP was also a great spec. Nice problem to have.

Looking forward to seeing the GTS in the flesh.

Nice garage selection, topped with two black beauty's.

Well done Paul, enjoy every mile.

Cheers, Keith.

Hi Keith,

Thanks. Nice to hear from you thumbsup

We'll have to arrange a meet for cars and coffee.

I've got it wrong, OPC did specify leather steering wheel. I wondered why they explained about the Alcantara one.

Carbon is back on he cards Question

Cheers,
Paul

Hi All,

Today I went in to finalise the details, delivery is next week Surprised



Settled on a heated carbon wheel after some wangling Wink So the only carbon items are the wing mirrors and the steering wheel, to lift the interior a little. Also a Gen-3 ceramic based glass coat and winter boots to be added before delivery.

Here's a thing you don't see every day, a full set of The Legends Limited Series of GTS's honouring Derek Bell (blue), Nick Tandy (white) and of course Richard Attwood in his famous 917's red & white.



You can clearly see the pronounced rear spoiler of the new GTS. Interestingly all drivers went for the AWD version and only Derek Bell plumbed for the manual box.

I know this isn't 964 stuff but we're among friends. bye

Although I may have a little bit of news about her soon!

Laters.

Cheers,
Paul

Love the subtle kick in the spoiler. Is that just a GTS thing?

I believe it's Sport Design Package on wide bodied cars Joe, which means Targas and GTS's, I think, however Porsche have habit of introducing stuff into future series Cop

Hi Chaps,

A sneak preview for you while being PDI'd, please come in Wink



















I'm looking forward to seeing it on the deck as it's 30mm lower than the normal Carrera & 20mm lower than an S. The Sport Design rear duck above and the Sport Design side skirts painted in body colour should look really good when it's hunkered down on the road with the wide body.

If you think the Jet Black Metallic is looking a little dull Grin there's a ceramic coat to go on it yet Smile

Cheers for now,
Paul

You dark horse !!! That's the way to do it Paul....throw out a few hints that you were "thinking" about moving on the macan and Voila ! A new 911 GTS appears.... Thumb

It looks absolutely stunning and very pleased to hear you are putting winter tyres on it so you can use it straight away.

I'm sorely tempted to be loitering around the OPC when you pick it up...maybe you should have an "official viewing" for us local 911UK boys, as you say cars and coffee.... bye Put me on the list....

I wish you the best of health to enjoy it for many years. Thumb

Looks so good Paul.

Will your winter wheels be the same black GTS wheels? I bet a set of those is not cheap 😮

Loving the blue 997 too 👍

To be fair, I had no idea until shortly after the bacon butties Grin

David had approached me and asked how I would feel about selling the Macan, I said it would have to be something special so, "How would you feel about a new black Carrera 4 GTS?"

"When?" I said, "Couple of weeks?" was the reply and a few days to think about it.

But nuff said really, I'd seen the rabbit. Although I couldn't mention it in case it didn't happen, so apologies for that. Bandit

I'll let both you and Keith know which day tomorrow when I find out, it will be great to have an official launch Grin

Hi Joe,

It's circa £4.5 - 5k for winter wheels & tyres but I'm going to have new winter tyres put on the existing rims and Porsche are going to store the summer tires until spring for me.

Cheers for now,
Paul

Hi All,

if you're following the PDI of the new GTS I've put it all on the 991 channel part of the Forum with latest photos from today.

http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=131019

I won't put any more on here as it's supposed to be for 964's after all and nobody likes double posts.

Well maybe only the odd one Grin

Cheers,
Paul

Haven't been on 911UK for ages, but when I do this thread is always my first port of call.

Congratulation on the GTS Paul, it looks to be a (black) beauty.

Cheers
Steve

Hi Steve,

Nice to see you alive and kicking Grin

Thanks mate, I'm sure we'll catch up soon. How's your 964 project going?

Cheers,
Paul

Less of a ‘project’ these days Paul, the originality grew on me after I’d done all the suspension and running gear. It still keeps me busy as I’m tinkering all the time.

Cheers
Steve

Hi Chaps,

Hope you're all good!

Had the old girl out from under her duvet yesterday to give her old bones a warm through and noticed the to and fro-ing out of the garage had used up nearly all the fuel this winter, so a ready made excuse for a blast on a sunny March afternoon.





Cheers,
Paul

Hi Chaps,

I hope you are all enjoying the summer and getting out & about.

Recently had a little issue which I'm sure some of you have come across before or will perhaps in the future and that is the barrel (for the key) on the door lock becoming"loose" and then perhaps spinning right around in the door handle. Nightmare Confused And perusing the possibility as OPC suggested, with replacing both locks at considerable cost. Surprised

Now I know you lot are very wealthy chaps and won't mind shelling out your inheritance but the spoiler alert is that you will also end up with 2 sets of keys frustrated

You could always gain entry by using the lock in the other door, while it lasts Grin however you will be pleased to know that it's a simple fix as it's just a little screw (in the first photo) which has worked loose. Mine actually fell into the bottom of the door.

All put it all back together and Locktite'd it into position to make sure the little b*gger didn't offend again.

Anyway for the record here are some photos to help disassembly and reassembly.













Cheers for now,
Paul

Nice one Paul , good bit of info there , they nearly had you're eyes out Smile
Only issue i had so far with the door handle is the lever snapping but easily replaced.
Just replacing the heat exchangers on mine at the moment , got some second hand for £600 Mad , i think ill repair my old ones and stick them on flea bay .
What was the trouble with the battery in the end was it just knackered ?

Hi Keith,

That might be a good plan mate!

I have a SS Fabspeed rear silencer with twin outlet and oval tips for sale if you are upgrading or know anyone who wants the twin outlet look? I was thinking of eBaying next week.

Yes the Bosch battery which was just over 4 years old was kapput! Even though OPC checked it and it was showing no dead cells. The replacment battery has bee on a few days and no drain on it so it was a simple fix in the end.

See you soon,
Paul
