a brand spanking new Bosch ABS sensor, 50£ from ebay. It solved my abs light coming on after a mile. Mind you it did take me an hour to get the old one out, using chisel, drill, screwdriver, pliers. Interesting before, the sensor measured ok in resistance, 1600 ohms like the other three and connectors etc free from corrosion and toothed wheel in good condition, so no idea why it threw up an error. Made my day.

Have treated the car to a service at the Porsche dealership in January. Found an OPC that will offer the classic service price - so only £310 and you get a courtesy car for the day.....was originally planning to service it myself, but decided it was worth keeping the FSH.

In preparation for the service have bought a Millers oil-analysis kit (so will get a sample before they change the oil). Have also bought a magnetic sump plug, which I will ask them to fit, when they change the oil....

After seeing this, I bought myself a rear wiper delete. First step to loosing weight. Then it’s the New Years resolution to loose a few lbs myself to make me the quickest about Floor

Amp Hound 2 from Cal-Van tools in the USA on ebay for £68.
The same company sells them on Amazon UK for £168. Hopefully import duty etc will be less than £100?

Fuel Filler Cap, seal was split

Front Lid Actuator;
It had become intermittent and fortunately failed open.
Upon removal I found the old one full of water Surprised
I'm now wondering if it might also be the cause of my intermittent flat battery problem. We'll see.
Next question is where the water's coming from..... Question

Very nice! Judging by the rear badge it is clearly not standard... What is it running then?

Well worth keeping the service history up as you say. Hopefully you'll get a decent courtesy car. I got a macan S last time the family car went in. That alone makes it worth going to OPC IMO.

I bought a mega pile of bits:

AOS (being the tit I am I seemed to have ordered the 996.2 type though, so I'll have to return that)
Breather hoses that clip onto the AOS as both appear to have cracks and are oil misting at the AOS.
Cam chain tensioners - it's an original '98 engine that's been unopened, and the tensioners have gone through several revisions so seemed sensible to change
Drivebelt pullies - 997 plastic type as they're lighter, mine whine like mad, I could have just got bearings but every little weight saving helps
Alt>Starter>Battery post wire
Engine>body earth strap - as mine looks ancient
Battery>body earth strap - as the last time I had the battery off, it didn't look amazing
Various plenum seals/o rings - as I'll be having it all apart to clean up anyway.
Variocam solenoid caps - as mine leak
Replacement alternator - my charge current/voltage is rather low
The usual filters - ready for a service at the same time

So it'll be a big old job in the new year! I'm weighing up whether dropping the engine to get to the AOS might outweigh the time taken to operate through the engine lid opening to remove the plenums etc..

Some makeup for the old girl Smile GTechniq Glass Care Kit - after removing the rear wiper and adding the delete bung (decent match given the original colour LM6X), ~30 minute job - I thought I'd just have some rain repellent insurance! 3 coats of G1 on the windscreen, 2 on the rear screen and 1 on the side windows. The 15ml bottles are good for 1 car

911tom - it's essentially the 9e35 package with rebuilt standard K24s plus uprated Do88 ICs. Kens calculated ~500RWHP with 18% transmission loss so that would suggest ~590BHP. Certainly feels it and very pleased with the results, sound is intoxicating Very Happy

A pair of Porsche dealer plates as mine had other dealer plates on and bought some H&R 30mm lowering springs.
