Hi All,

I officially signed up to the forum yesterday to coincide with the day I let the BMW Z4M Coupe that I had owned for over 11 years from new go to make way for a 993 that had also had one owner from new:



I have the original sales invoice, showing it was ordered with the Aerokit 2 front and rear spoilers, lowered suspension and 18" Technology wheels seen in the photo, along with sport bucket seats.

It was a daily driver until recently and has done over 147k miles so there are a few things I want to do to give the interior a bit of a refresh (and a few more things I didn't realise I wanted to do until I read the entire "What did you buy your 993 this week?" thread...!)

Anyway, just thought I'd say hi, thanks for all the useful information I've read so far and I look forward to participating in the forum.

All the best,

Paul

Wow! Beautiful! thumbsup

One owner:- great find.

I’m sure you’ll enjoy it loads.

Congratulations and welcome.

You’ll find a wealth of knowledge on here, try to find a meet local to you (911uk/PCGB/TIPEC) and hopefully you’ll find someone who knows 993’s and can answer all the ‘is this normal?’ Questions.

There’s a few 993 owners in the midlands.

Welcome and congrats on the new motor. Quite a change from a Z4M. Thumb

What colour interior and is it just a general tidy/refresh. Any other mods planned?

I’m based in Battersea, South West London and do see the odd 993 around here so hopefully there are some local members whose brains I can pick!

The Z4M was a great car with a lovely engine but it’s fair to say the 993 is on another level!

The interior is marble grey and looking pretty tired but I’ve seen the wonders that have been worked with the leather in some member’s cars so I think I’ll investigate the cost of that first.

I’ve got a Rennline Aluminium Gear Knob on order and like the look of the Carnewal Alu Gauge Trim Rings too but reckon I’ll stop there for now (famous last words...!)

It’s midnight blue, which actually looks a lot darker in real life than that picture most of the time but I’ve been trying to take photos that don’t show the number plate until I can get my personal plate transferred on to it!

Nice one Paul, welcome to the forum and congratulations on finding such a great looking car.

It's always pleasing to see 993's that have racked up a few miles, used as they were intended to be used.

Mine has done 130k miles now and often doesn't get used for a couple of weeks which gets me thinking I should maybe sell it. But then I take it for a quick blast and remember what an enjoyable and engaging thing it is to drive.

Your car looks very cool - congrats on the purchase Cool.

Nice to see those side skirts make an appearance - they do fit in very well with the front splitters and rear spoiler Thumb.

Look forward to seeing what your plans for the car are, and of course, more pics Smile.
