this is a bit sad I know. But reading this thread about GT3's is giving me withdrawal symptoms. Mine is tucked up in the "garrige" and actuially needs a clean, not driven it for 3 weeks, snow, life, other car etc but I thought i would get it out for a "virtual" drive by posting a pic on here. At the same time giving Oze (and clinchy) a nudge to get a new car so we can all have a blast next year as soon as the sun comes out again!

...Now you've really made me feel guilty. What with all that grit and filth
on the road, preceded by unbelievable snow..i'm rather embarrassed, and
ashamed to say i've only been out in mine once in the past six or so weeks.
You're right we do need a blast...i'm praying we don't get another dump of
the white stuff this week.

Not so sure that restrictive annual mileage was such a good idea nooo

I don't know why I hang around with you wusses - a bit of inclement weather & you tuck them away unused for weeks and then moan about withdrawal symptoms. FFS, man up!

As James will confirm, mine is lovely & filthy Very Happy

Yep, saw it with my own eyes, Nicks car would have done Colin McRae proud! But then again it was hardly a White Angel in the first place Smile Very Happy

...Good man...then did you do the right thing and offer to lend him the
money to buy it ??. Oh, by the way some time ago on another thread you
recommended Mannings for Insurance...you were spot on, there were very helpful,
and competitive. Thumb

very much like my old 996 GT3 Thumb


Been offline for a while and just catching up on a few threads....so, anyone know anything about the red Manthey 410 GT3 at JZM and any ideas on servicing issues/costs/insurance compared to standard GT3? Although it's got what many regard the ultimate engine upgrade it's going to give me the debt of a small far flung country if it goes poop, is it worth it Question

Thanks


Identical Servicing costs to the standard GT3.

The extra Torque of the K410 makes the differences.

However :
- if the Differential is still the original GT3 spec, it doesn't last past 25k miles (plates worn) and needs to be upgraded to the Motorsport Cup differential which costs the same as the OEM GT3 but lasts much longer, which costs £1k
- Manthey Exhaust Catalyst system only good for up to 25k miles and is a €2k replacement, but is the dogs bollocks when it comes to sound Smile

I have a little "tweaking" to do before being able to do the deal. Hopefully I can work something out. It's a nice car, I think we would get on very well Smile

....Thanks to Nick for coming along. Always helpful to have someone who knows what to look for as opposed to the odd "is that meant to be like that?" sort of comment.

his...nice one ! Floor
