Well here it is, the replacement for my recently sold Corrado.Its a Porsche 911, 964 Carrera 4. The car I have wanted to own since I was 16. I have plans for it, but the details of that will come in time.First here are some pics before I do anything to it.The car is unbelieveable to drive and everything I hoped it would be. I will try and keep you all up to date with what I do to it, starting with a proper clean this week sometime. The car is going to be my daily (its my only car) and will be maintained and modified by yours truly, so it could be interesting. :)

What do you all think.....

Cheers Asim Smile You know it will change though......

Yeah not loving the ride height at the mo, plus it feels a bit wallowy after the Corrado. Saving for suspension already.

These are the wheels I have bought....

Hello Dom,

Good to hear from you mate. Can't wait to get cracking on her, lots of ideas and plans. Starting with a serious clean. Bought some swissol putty and cleaning fluid yesterday, so I know what I will be doing for a while!

You thinking of getting one then Dom?

Jay
