2007 Porsche 997 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Sun Sep 11, 2016 7:37 pm    Post subject: Black Edition 997.2 convertible Reply with quote

Recently Mrs Monkey swapped out her 996 convertible for a late 997 convertible.

It's a 3.6 black edition (only 1911 were made in total) with a flappy paddle PDK box.

It's fantastic to drive and only has 26k on the clock from new with a full porsche dealer history. It's completely stock apart from the interior light bulbs being swapped out for led's.

I was instructed to clean it this afternoon, so took a few pics.

Hope you like it! Cool








And a couple more from this evening..



Interior





Cool Cool

Perhaps next weekend. Let's see what the weather is like. I want to machine polish the red one,but that meas inside work, which means having to shift a lot of VW bus stuff around. Not sure I can work it all out.

Looks like a good job to me Thumb

Did you find out what the 'Black Edition' incorporated as standard above the base model? I'd be interested to know for my own knowledge, (thumbs up).

Wheels, black paint, info pack, comfort pack, limited edition plaque, stainless door shut trim, ali trim on dash, vents and gear knob and painted centre console, PDK shift paddles.

Just interior trim stuff really, but at less than it would be if specced normally.

Washed the convertible this evening (very quickly) and gave it a spritz with some Blackfire midnight sun detailing spray.

Looks magic!

If you get into the Blackfire products you'll be impressed.

For all of them, start with their gloss enhancing polish. Then apply the sealant or wax. Then use either the midnight sun or wet diamond spray after a wash.

I use the black ice wax on the black car and midnight sun detail spray.

http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acatalog/blackfire-car-care-and-detailing-products.html

On the red car I put on sealant followed by midnight sun wax and midnight sun detail spray.
