||I have decided to part with my lovely 996.2 C2, some will already know this car as it previously belonged to forum member EGTE, I have not done this car justice and used it for less than 1800 miles since I bought it off Russell last summer, the car is a real testament to his care and drive to make a great C2. I have literally baby sat the car!
But as I mentioned in a previous post I had 2 996’s which actually meant I never really did much with either (first world problem I know) but that is it, plus my wife has an awesome 981 S with PDK so we tend to go in that a fare bit. Anyway I digress, due to various things in my life I have a limited time to enjoy cars (my car) and there is an itch that needs scratching before I have to break out the mobility scooter LOL! (update actually sold my original 996.1 so was then down to just the C2, but that itch I mentioned! well I now back with 2 cars so hence I have lowered the price on the C2 So this great car needs to be enjoyed by someone who will use it as intended. The cars development is well documented in various threads and also via a fantastic write-up on
The thing that really is fantastic is the stance, comfort and amazing handling due in no small part to the 3-way EXE-TC suspension which were totally overhauled by the factory prior to fitment, plus the awesome looking Braid Fuch’s wheels formerly on the fantastic CLR 996.
Centre console delete also adds to the great black on black interior with extended leather, which is in fantastic condition and not like many tired looking interiors on these cars, looks more like a 20K mileage interior!
Some highlights of works carried out previously to my ownership.
Fitted EXE-TC 3-way suspension (springs, dampers, top mounts and ARB droplinks). Thelinks have just been upgraded for free (weather-proof boots this time) by Exe-tc, which is nice. Set up for fast-road use, so incredibly compliant but with total control, the ride/handling is amazing.
Changed the front bumper for a genuine Porsche 996.2 GT3 front PU and fitted Zunsport grilles.
Fitted Low-temp thermostat and always use Millers Nanotech 10W-50. Recent Millers oil analysis absolutely fine.
Full geo at GT3 ride height, with corner balancing.
All new coil-packs.
New clutch 9,000 miles ago. IMS was absolutely fine (and dust-cap removed as per Hartech suggestion)
New serpentine belt, 3 new rollers
Alternator service and fitted with new voltage regulator
New coolant bottle, cap and bottle.
GT3 console delete, which looks great and gives more leg-room.(photos show before console delete carried out)
New headlamp and indicator bulbs recently.
Full waxoyl treatment.
Just fitted 964 RS engine mounts and Powerflex gearbox-mount insert, to firm up the gear-shift (very successfully)
Applied anti-stone-chip paint on wheel arches and underside treated to Hydra80 every time I get under the car.
Front bumper removed to clean rads/condensers every year, so they are fine (won’t be needed now, with grills)
Particularly attention paid to tackling rust underneath (use Bilt-Hamber Hydra80 and copper grease a lot!)
New rear lower coffin arms fitted and alignment to Tuthill settings.
Gearbox oil recently changed to Millers NanoDrive 75W-90, feels as new.
2 recent rear tyres (Michelin PS4s).
All brake discs and pads renewed in the last 6000 miles.
Just had a Major Service done, including all spark plugs and brake fluid.
Car has done 85,600 miles and has never used any oil between services.
There is a wealth of service history with this car in line with the excellent care that has been lavished upon it over the years.
If preferred the Original Carrera-style wheels (plus PZero N-rateds) in PERFECT condition. Which have been fully refurbished and never used, these could be put back on the car instead of the Braid Fuch’s or could be purchased by separate negotiation as a 2nd set of wheels.
Here is a link to a Google album showing photographs of the car.
