PostPosted: Sat Mar 02, 2019 6:08 pm    Post subject: My Black 2002 996.2 C2 - Daily Driver Reply with quote

Hi all, intro post from me and my 996.2 which I picked-up last weekend from a user on here.

Car is a 2002 C2, bought on 146,500 miles but with a lot of love and attention from it's previous owners including a Hartech rebuild at 58k miles, full M030 kit at 106k miles and loads of other bits and bobs that only the true enthusiastic owner does! (Gearbox oil changes, ignition coils, 997 shortshift, wheels recently refurbed, etc)

The previous owner also fitted 997 sports seats and the car is a non-sunroofer - perfect combo for me as I'm tall.

Plan is to drive, maintain and enjoy. For the past 7 years my daily drivers have been two e39 M5s - the first I took to 213k miles, the second (which I still have) is on 170k miles and in the middle of a major bodywork refresh (new sills, respray, brake lines, etc etc).

Anyway, the 996!

When I viewed her two weeks ago:





Filling-up with fuel last Sunday having just collected:



And today giving her an oil change with a Porsche (Hengst) filter and Millers 10w50 which the previous owner very kindly supplied with the car:





Thanks to this for community for all the useful info I gleaned when I was looking for/viewing 996s and MASSIVE thanks to the previous owner Tom for a very pleasant, honest and enjoyable purchase - the car is great!

Stay tuned...

Cheers,
Rob

One month in and 1100 miles completed already - 700 of those in the past week on a trip round the UK to various parts of the family and a few days R&R in the lakes.

First part of the trip was to see my parents in Lincolnshire. My Dad has a lift in his workshop so opportunity to have a good look-see and check underneath.

Up on hoist, wheels off



Undertrays off showing nothing to worry about - all lovely and dry and rust free. A couple of removable brackets to take off and replace or recoat at some point this summer (ones under fuel tank, coil pack covers, etc)







The weather was surprisingly pleasant so part two of the roadtrip meant going up the coast into Yorkshire with a few stops along the way to see the beaches/dunes.






Then a few nights in the Lakes. Check out that sunset! (Porsche is parked down to the left, trust me...)



Trip-end - 683 miles and a scarcely believable 29mpg.



Onwards and upwards!
