From a recommendation on here I bought one of these flush(ish) fitting usb plugs.
Works well and is a nice snug fit in the cars socket.

FYI - just in case you weren't already aware from other threads on here - your radio reception will go to hell while you are charging your phone.... and I seem to remember it will also suffer while this is merely plugged in i.e. it has a slight draw at all times


As long as you know that is the cause, you don't risk spending a fortune and time on a new head unit, etc


(more than a few of us seem to have spent some time down that particular rabbit hole! Wall )

It's an expensive rabbit hole, unfortunately.

A good friend of mine (who designs and makes amps, amongst other things) reckons that it's the Nokia amp having an issue with other electrical items (specifically the DC:DC converter in the charger) sharing the same ground as it.

The issue should not appear if the car has no amp, is the good news (if we are right).

It even interferes with the radio in my 3 year old VW Transporter.

Think I'll file it under F Rolling Eyes

A cracking pic from last year when I photo bombed the local TIPEC group whilst they were in the pub on club business.

So with the 914 now sold I think may need to sell the 911 as well to tick the next box in my motoring life. Thumb

C'mon spill the beans! Very Happy

Good luck with the sale. Hopefully you'll still be visiting these parts.
I hope yours sells quickly or we may be fighting over buyers. Grin

I'm going to decide this week if I'm going to put mine up. Thumb

Don't do it Mark, unless you have something seriously better in mind. My current man maths algorithm states - "pay 100% more must be 100% faster/better/etc.".........there's nothing out there that can come anywhere near.


Apart from mayber £25k on a low mileage AM Vantage Embarassed wack Grin

Yep, I know. Whatever it is it won’t be £20k/£30k better than the 996 dynamically. It will be purely heart over head.

Whenever I pop into my garage I think “Don’t be an idiot, keep it”, but then I go looking around on the internet. Wink

Time will tell though and it’s 50:50 for now. Thumb


KAS, I hope you’re staying with the brand, as I enjoy your threads and what you do to your cars. Thumb

Marky I have owned a Porsche pretty much constantly for 29 years and having just turned 50 I know that I need to tick some boxes whilst I still have the interest!

My 996 is utterly sorted and drives like a new car so it could be a very good buy for someone.

It may not happen for me but the V8 vantage look outrageous value and a safe place to have my money sat.I remember 8k Sc's,10k 3.2 Carreras and 12k 964's,so I can recognise a trend when it's starting to pan out.

I have done loads of research and I have lined up a good indie in Wilmslow who raves about the V8 vantage and said that they sometimes have niggles but they have never had to have one trailered back to them and also said that they have quite a few customers cars on their books with well over 100k covered.

An example of what is out there

Mornin’ Kas,

I can totally see the attraction. Of the two cars I would sell my 996 for, that aren’t Porsche, one is a V8V and the other is an F type, although the latter will lose a lot. (Obviously there are more but they aren’t under my £40-odd K budget.

The Aston’s sound and look stunning, I just worry that once the new car buzz wears off, I’d be left with a less involving drive. I’m lucky that my mates have sampled just about everything as one of them is a dealer (he has an Aston at the moment), so I’m able to sample a lot of cars properly without having to buy them or waste salesmen’s time.

I’ve decided that if I don’t change my 996 for a year or two I’m going to add an ‘07/‘08 XKR as a daily. Cheap mans Aston Grin and I still have the 996 for weekends. My boss had one new in ‘07 and I liked it. Auto slush-box only though.

If an interesting air-cooled 911 comes up though I’ll go for that but a lot of stars would need to align for that to happen, eg selling the 996 quickly etc.

15 years of 911s for me (minus 2015), but I’m still addicted. Very Happy

Enjoy the search for your next car, it’s always fun. Thumb

The Aston in that link looks very good value! They are outrageously good to look at too aren't they!?

I've heard nothing but tales of regret from people buying them though, am I alone in this? I ask as if what I've been hearing is wrong then I'd consider a vantage too if my turbo ever sells. Dont know

I've been considering that exact same car Ady. Been on a few weeks now and looks an absolutes steal. I don't see how anyone with a bit of nous and likes dabbling with the spanners would regret buying one of these...........and they'll be £35k in 5 years.

Mark - I'm in that exact same 50:50 position. Quite frustrating. Frank & I even did some role play on the pub car park yesterday with Frank the salesman and me the buyer. He quite easily sold my own car back to me. Think the correlation of the new hood being like wearing a new pair of underpants sealed the deal Grin
