It is a cracking looking car though! Thumb
I would have liked to have seen the details of the refurb to compare notes.
Although it would have been too rich for me.

Presuming it's the same car, you can't argue with the interior improvements. Also looks loads better sans the spoilers and fuss.

Must have cost a fair penny to do all that work, inc a set of refurbished hard backs.

Mileage basically unchanged in that time, so can only presume it's been under the knife most of that time.

Just read this from start to finish. Adore the revamped colour and can can red interior. As many others have said, hats off to you for the vision and seeing the project through.

For a relative newbie like me, it is great inspiration for a litany on non-Illuminati-approved mods in the future! Very Happy

Gosh this is a blast from the past!

A fair bit of water has passed under the bridge since then.
A lot of further fettling too. Full brakes upgrade to Big Reds and Bilsteins into the bin and Ohlins R/T (one off 993 prototype) all round, cross brace and meatier ant-roll bar now in situ.

All expertly fitted by the good Doctor .. .

Looking forward to track day at Spa-Francorchamps at the end of March with the Jolly Boyos
Cool
