2004 Porsche 997 Carrera 2S

PostPosted: Sat Nov 18, 2017 7:55 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I have a 330i M Touring in Imola red with 19" CSL wheels, looks epic and I love it to bits, munches motorways and will pick it's heels up when over 3k.
Silky smooth engine, I might be getting an individual 7 series E38 740i as a project shortly, might be a freebie thumbsup

I had a carbon black one for a couple of years before my 996. I had it inspected by a BMW garage before buying it and they found the start of the rear axle mounts cracking. At the time there was a guy called Mat @ Mprove/Off Your Marks in Manchester who specialised in repairing them depending how bad they had got. Anyway, I sent him the pics and as a result still bought the car with a £1800 discount. I had it repaired with all new mount rubbers etc. My thoughts were that it would be sorted and nothing to worry about going forwards. Mine was the smg which I know a few had trouble with the hydraulic pump failing, but few and far between. I loved the car and the engine was wonderful. Don't worry about not having satnav, mine had it but it was very clunky and very dated.
M3cutters is an excellent forum.

I like them also after driving one a few month back, actually toying with the idea of selling my 996 to buy an M3

The SL is a bit OT, but which one do you mean?

M3 has now arrived

I have been driving round in it now and again.

Wow these things are great, they pull like a train, Rev like a vtec

Brake well and handle well. Very surprised

They feel very old school in the way the steering feeds back , but they also lose traction pretty easy

Congratulations. Any pictures? It would be rude not to.

Many uprated the single pot BMW brakes to six pots - AP Racing, Stop Tech et cetera

You can also upload direct to the forum Usng the Add attachment function but the file size for images has to be under 2mb
As already mentioned m3cutters is a forum with massive wealth of thread info. Boot floor cracks can be fixed for 800 all in at ETA motorsport, they have them booked in constantly. It's a really quick car, I love mine

You'll love it.

My friend was selling his, so I hopped in it for a blast, and made me really reconsider what I own my 996 for.

agreed. the low mileage ones have been on the up for a while.

CSLs have gone big now. should have kept mine. had two of them and amazing cars. great balance, handling and sound. still feel like you are in a shopping trolley though as its a 3 series at heart. that's what I love about a 911 as you feel like you are in a sports car

had a boggo 46 and that was great fun too. manual coupe is the way to go.

you can get them for a song now but buyer beware and most of the issues already discussed. can have vanos and top end issues too. rear sub frame is the main thing but looked after ones will have had all this done.

have a look on M3cutters for some good cars for sale.
