A friend of mine bought the 993 they did and sold it on about 6 months later (for a profit). Car was fine but he didn't like suspension set-up they fitted.

I saw the Noble M12 they fetched from Italy at Jetstream Motorsport when mine was in for a service .
It was in for repair at the expense of Wheeler Dealers.

my claim to fame as I was on that programme. Edd said at the time that the suspension was to harsh for it. 2 days on the buttertubs pass in november freezing my nuts off for all of 1 minute 20 seconds footage !!

The car looked a bit tired even then

I remember that episode. They fitted a rather firm suspension but even Porsche use a softer set-up on Targa's........probably to stop the glass roof squeaking and possibly cracking !!
