Finally got her today and took her for a drive along the coast then 50 miles of winding country roads home.
I’ve had Porsche’s in my time but oh my God I am so pleased to be back behind the best car in the world!

Thanks guys!

waking up at 6am most days now waiting to just drive it
Thumb

It feels so much more purer drive than my 997s 3.8 had.
I dunno, to me it’s a pure Porsche experience with the sport chassis too (gt3) I think ?

Hi is it GT3 kit? i thought that too but wasnt sure???
I have some receipts in 2015 for bumpers..


On a side note, just went to the bank to buy a private plate and found it wont go on my car as it needs to be 15 or newer.
I am DEVASTATED!!!!!!
But since it wont go on my car, maybe someone can get an absolute bargain!

Front bumper has the filled in bit so looks like it to me, what does the receipt say Dont know

re the plate, school boy error Grin

You could advertise in the Number Plate section, they like newbie's in there Embarassed

Warning, watch out for TR3V0R as he is a H67ER of plates nooo

U N0, some like them, some don't...YC5 Thumb

HSC - how wrong you are kind sir! It retracts when you press the button - and goes the other way if you press said button again. So, today, i will be driving from sunny Brizzol to sunny Farnham and will press said button and travel sin-roof and con-shades all the way there.

When i get there i'll take my golf clunbs out of the car and then press the button and the roof will go back up.

Again, whats not to like...?? Cool Grin
