happy 1st Tom. Was getting a massive sense of deja vu before i read 2017!

Are you around Harlow? If so, Matt at Porschacare based in Welwyn Garden is terrific. He's had mine today for a coolant pipe, SSK and general look at the roof to stop it making noises, all in all, £289, and picked the car up and brought it back (I'm in Hertford)

Still miss my S2000 and values are still climbing, so will one day get one as a pure fun car!

Also ordered 2 new rears today from F1 in Hertford, bargain at £260 fitted for MPS4S.

if you are nearby should say hello some time!

Hi resigner, I’m up in Birmingham so had to travel a little way to collect the car. Glad I did though! Will say hi if I’m ever down your way! I would still have my S2000 if I had a double garage is what I keep telling myself. Such a great car to drive and getting increasingly expensive to source a good one.

My roof makes a bit of a rattle so it would be interesting to hear any tips or fixes to stop that.

get it tightened and lubricated. Mine seems better, haven't driven far yet though!

Good to hear you got a good car from Lakeside. I test drove one when I was looking but it whistled. They said it was wind noise and normal..... Can't remember what it is, but something has been tightened to much. Safe to say I walked away and wouldn't, personally, go back......
