Cheers guys.

I have 'form' with a friend's 996 years ago, and driven loads over the years but no - I've never owned a Porsche before.

Had to be a 911 see?
Had to be no finance see?
Hence so bloody long a wait!

Heads might be French, they'll have "Made in France" on the casting. Sure there's probably a few other bits and bobs too. Just take comfort they were checked by a German wearing white gloves and a lab coat.

That makes me feel a bit better!

Stuff I'm thinking about.

1) Seams on PSE
2) Head unit/Audio
3) Red seat belts (tart)
4) Bilsteins/arch gap

Ah Herr Teflon... nice motor

Trust you to go for the "tarts" option of the C4S though... Smile

Don't worry about that list, not until you've stopped fretting about IMSB, LTT, rads, Bore Score etc..

Oh and btw - Bilsteins are so last year - Ohlins are the thing now apparently Very Happy

Very Happy You know me ......

Billies on everything for me, the Mi16, the T4 Westy, the Clio, everything. It's nice that I have a relationship with the guys too. But I have an open mind Smile

Things I'm not thinking about;

1. Bearings and seals and *****.
