Hi Guys,

Thanks for all your kind comments Thumb And I know it's good if you say it is KP Wink

K888ETH, Thanks! Manu makes a big this of reflections for his realism style.

Manu is definitely worth following on Instagram at manucampart Chris, there's lots of good Porschie (sic) stuff to enjoy from an alternative perspective.

I suppose I could always come with the Macan Turbo PP while it's bad weather John, it's an interesting an car in itself and sounds mint.

I'm getting the car out next Tuesday (barring more saltiness) and taking to Porsche OPC for an oil change, which automatically qualifies to for the new Porsche Classic Register.

There are nice benefits to be had here, see Porsche GB website for all the details

https://www.porsche.com/uk/accessoriesandservice/classic/register/

The reason Porsche are being generous is so they can get a handle on what's out there and tempt classic business back into OPC's. I wouldn't exactly say they weren't interested a few years ago but it's different ball game now with the values of classic cars and they want a slice of the pie. I will say however that I've always found them to be very competitive with parts an labour and the mechanics love to see them.

They are already reintroducing classics into the showrooms and selling them alongside new models, it's a very lucrative business and apart from the money it's added brand value.

Nice work if you can get it. Anyway I'll let you know what happens after I pick the old gal up on Tuesday evening

Cheers,
Paul

Oil change it is then..... Thumb

Cheers

Hi M,

No problem, it's a good deal and apart from all the goodies like the plate holders, nitrogen for the tyres free washes and classic pack, it's worth having your Porsche classic registered in your own name back at the factory.

Hi Chaps,

All done and I wish I'd cleaned the underside of the car first but that's a job for over the winter. Anyway here is a link to the muck Grin

https://video.citnow.com/vxGB3mg7MNF

It was great to see catch up few old friends and new this morning for coffee and bacon rolls generously supplied by Porsche Centre Teesside thumbsup Big thanks to all an especially to Andy Wexham who did the service on my car.

A few photos showing the new Porsche Classic Register plates and a few arty shots.
























She's all pressure washed and polished off and I think that will be about it for this year.



Cheers,
Paul

Hi Chaps,

The painting from Manu Campa arrived last week and I've now had it mounted.

I've hung it my office I think it's too good for the garage?



Cheers,
Paul

Hi Chaps,

After signing up to the Porsche Classic Register, today I received my first volume (that's the only way I could describe it - actually their 2nd edition) of Porsche Classic Originale, beautifully wrapped.





It's very useful for showcasing parts that Porsche are reintroducing for their classics. Now here's the thing, for some time I've been considering replacing my speakers. One of them popped last year and I thought at the time Frank Sinatra had had a heart attack, then I remembered he was dead so it must have been a speaker that had croaked it.

So I had been wondering what the options might be, lo and behold this tome landed today and I opened up and there was the answer....all the original official speakers are being made again and sold as front & rear kits, happy daze!





If any of you like me are still running your original speakers, I can assure you they will be well past their sell by date. I'll probably have to can one of Edward's bitcoins in to pay for them though Grin

A Merry Christmas to all our readers!

Have a great one mates!

Paul santa

Thanks Jay Thumb

I'm pleased you have enjoyed it. Photo bucket has destroyed a lot of of good threads but hopefully, over the Xmas break, I'll restore a few of the photos.

All the best,
Paul
