and I dont think that I want just a 'punture' repair when I'm blasting across the autobahn at 140mph !

so the added problem of 'finding' the matching Pirelli P-Zero Rosso sometime tomorrow !

NO FAIR !

and back home.....

just short of 1800kms there and back in about 18hours of driving.. over 30hours

TT was fun on the way down...

but the 993 was more fun on the way back.....

first impressions.. compared from the perfectly designed TT.. the 993 is noisy, cramped, tiring & tricky to driving.. BUT LOVING IT ALL THE WAY !

love the engine noise.... it may not have the mid-range torque of a turbo charged TT (obviously) but it is much more fun to drop a few gogs !

only problem was the CD changed magazine it disappeared from the garage so I had to suffer with Germany Radio all the way back !

ALSO people do really check you out ! although its almost like they were on WWII attack patterns as they head towards for a closer look at 80mph on the autobahns....! (and some TOO close!)

so far.. best choice i've ever made

regards

Mate, can I have some of whatever drugs you are on please?? Comparing a Golf with a squashed roof to a supercar... that is a habit that will soon stop I think!

PS - time to change your signature and I look forward to those pics!!!
