Stunning! Good result. I miss mine.

I remember you from Pistonheads. You had a lovely looking white with red wheels 3.2 Carrera didn't you? Welcome on here anyway. It's far better than P'heads for info and older cars.
P'heads is great if you want to discuss stitching colour on a brand new GT3 though. Grin

Anyway enjoy that car! Very special. If I can ever get back into one I will. Thumb

ETA - They sound knackered at tick over don't they. Totally worth the trade off for that tip end scream though.

Thanks! Yes indeed that was me! This does seem like a great forum, PH has definitely gone down hill these days, I'm looking forward to getting along to some meets next year.

A rather big smile leaving 911V...

Safely home and tucked up!
Awesome experience isn't it? Having been through a simialr collection experience only a few weeks back, pinching yourself to check it is really happening is about as close as you can describe the feeling.

Funnily enough, regarding the Mezger idle, my GT3 is far noisier than my 996tt, which did surprise me, but then the internals and induction bits are very different.

Just one thing you're doing wrong though; not enough bicycles:
