Great exposure on the photos kev Thumb

What oil have you put in ? You know my cars background with LTT and millers nano plus service report.

Had the wheels done over the weekend and they look great. Makes the car almost new.

Had a re-gas this morning of the A/C system and All's good again.

It's driving like a new car also after the service with the intake mod and bmc air filter Grin

If you haven't already, get that sorted. The car feels free and a lovely howl gets the hairs on end Cool

You would be fine with a DA machine and there are plenty of good guides to follow .
Have a practice on someone else's first ! Grin

Ian,
I'm using Shell Helix Ultra 5/40, had it serviced a couple of weeks back and also had an LTT fitted as a preventive .

Where did you get your wheels done as I have a set of Carrera Sports that need freshening up at some point.

Kev, you didn't opt for millers then! Fat lot of good it helped me Laughing

Joking aside, the car is running superb after the service with no issues at all so I've forgotten about the scope Grin

Had them done at the wheel specialist in Cwmbran. I know it's a franchise but the guys there are very helpful and done a great job.

centre caps off eBay £19.99 for 4 and chrome wheel nut covers until I get the spacers sorted Smile

No Millers Ian, the cars had the usual Mobil 0/40 from new and was changed to Shell Helix 5/40 last year so I've stuck with it.
Oil changes have always been frequent and I'll be continuing with that which is normal practice for me anyway.
The bores were inspected before buying the car and it had a clean bill of health but I did opt for the LTT as a precaution.

Try not to worry about yours if it's running sweetly, it probably won't get any worse with regular maintenance and might of been like it a while. I hope you feeling a bit easier with it now.

Wheels, they look great:thumb: I've used the wheel specialist in Cwmbran myself a couple of times and they have always done superb work.

Thanks Phil, yes it's been a really enjoyable year and I've really enjoyed the social side which in my view has enhanced the whole Porsche experience.

I'll bet yours is polished more than mine

So a year ago today I picked up my first Porsche and it was certainly a nervous but exciting day.

The past years ownership has been brilliant, rewarding and fun I'm so glad I took the plunge.
These cars are special and I suppose only ownership fully reflects that so if anyone is thinking about buying one..... do it Grin

Pretty unique to see so many together.

BTW your Speed yellow Turbo is a right eye full in the rear view mirror and certainly has some presence Cool

SY is Certainly not for shrinking violets

Really good to follow yours in as it reminded me of the C2S I bought new in 2004. Same wheels but Seal Grey. Kept it 7years. Think I still have all the glossy marketing and sales material from the time somewhere. Will dig it out for a future meet if you are interested in looking through it.

Thanks I'd appreciate that G2, my next 911uk meet will probably be Donnington if you are attending.

Tuesday evening had a run out 'to a local Motorsport reunion meeting.
Always very pleasant and had good company with a very nice early Boxster, a Gen 1 Turbo and a selection of very nice Escorts.

Lol

I owned 3 Sapphire Cosworths, the 2wd car was one of the most entertaining cars I've ever owned. Back in 89 it was a performance bargain.
