Phil does that trim restorer work when the scuttle is now a grey colour?


That'll make it go faster Floor Floor Floor

Cheap Chinese LED rear number plate lights of ebay and they are actually really quite good..
.. Oh and the correct RUF springs, not bought but exchanged for the incorrect ones they sent me - thanks Yas.SYC4S Thumb

I bought a secondhand window regulator as the window wouldn't go up. I'll do a write up on Monday but nothing which hasn't been said before. Test drive afterwards just to be sure.

Nothing. It hasn't needed anything for weeks now!

A relief after doing so much work to it....I'm kinda at a loss with all my spare time now.

I even emptied the door pockets, that and the wiper delete is worth an extra 10 brake at least Mr. Green

New MOT today so all set for the good weather should it return Cool

Just one advisory to say that the rear tyres are wearing unevenly with greater wear on the inner edges. Looks like the geo’s might need doing again in the near future.

Wow Alex - that is cheap. Can you do me a favour and let me know what it’s like when fitted etc. I’ve been looking at soft tops for a while.!

Did you do the underside treatment yourself? If not, mind me asking how much that cost? Thanks.

I'd have been tempted to go red, I think it looks so good on a silver car

A couple of lads on the 996 facebook group have done it and to be honest I don't like it. Don't get me wrong, I love the red tops on the darker metallic greys but on the Arctic silver doesn't look so nice. I did give it a lot of consideration and thought but in the end Black won.

No:

Plus I really like the monochrome look of mine and didn't want to move away from that.

Only colour is the Porsche badges and rear plate.

Minor service and brake fluid change at Porsche centre Sutton Coldfield,
Had Macan for the day, only 320 miles on clock, could be my drive in the future, very impressed

Two new rear tyres😱 Local fitter I trusted supplied at a couple of pounds over blackcircles prices. Noticed all four Tyres wearing slightly more on inner edges, is this normal Porsche set up or doesit need realigning?

Speed humps? Do you straddle them, I never do now, especially in the 996.

Just out walking the dog with the GF and a Silver Merc comes past with a red top on. I ask her what she thinks, to which she replied "looks like it's having a period" Floor
