Bullet bit: 9 Apart are refurbishing a set of Design 90s for me. And I'm about to order four new P Zero tyres from Camskill or similar...[/url]

Newly refurbished D90's from 9 Apart with metal centre caps and a fresh set P Zeros N4's:



I much prefer the ride. And it's nice to be 'period correct' (ignore the mirrors, and the steering wheel, and the exhaust mods, the radio upgrade, the Bilstein shocks, the H&R springs...!)

Interestingly, the 964's Certificate of Authenticity confirms the factory colour as 'Grand Prix White' but the code in the Service Book was then updated by Porsche Cars Great Britain to reflect the conversion to 'Brilliant Red Metallic':

Oh, and if you participated in the 'Exclusive' programme in 1990, you got this tiny sticker on the bottom of your expensively-painted, offside wing!

would love to hear your thoughts on how the two 911s compare - handling, sense of speed, sound etc

Well, now 850 miles in...the difference? In a nutshell (and I know it's simplistic), but it's like the difference between analogue and digital. Between lowering the stylus on a heavy AR turntable and clicking on a track via Spotify! Both have their place, and being able to flit between one and the other is the real joy!

Is anyone looking for an RS front splitter?

Exactly like this: https://www.porscheshop.co.uk/porsche-body-trim-parts/porsche-964-body-trim-parts-1989-to-1993/porsche-964-body-styling-1989-to-1993/front-splitter-964-rs.html

Except in Brilliant Red Metallic!

I've just removed it from the car (I'm going back to stock).

PM me if interested...

Just picked the car up from SCS Porsche after its annual trip to Devon (they've serviced it every year since 2007):

    6k Service
    Brake Fluid Change
    Fresh MOT (no advisories)
    New CV boots (inner and outer) on both from drive shafts
    New PAS pump feed hose
    Remote batteries, replaced just in case!

Lovely drive back down to Cornwall. Leaves turning, clouds gathering...

After nearly 18 months of ownership and almost 5,000 miles, I appreciate the character and set-up of the car more and more.

I've just bought a lovely 1984 Ferrari Mondial QV (in timewarp condition) to go alongside it. Argento Silver with Burgundy interior. Collect it next week...

Well, I'm the proud new custodian of John Pogson's Mondial QV, made famous in this film:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHkU1h_sKM4

Just driven her home from Italia Autosport up in the Peak District to Cornwall (350+ miles) and she didn't miss a beat!

Classic, air-cooled 911 alongside a classic, manual Ferrari. I'm a lucky man.
