Car looks great.
Good choice to get a second set of wheels - carrra classics look good to my mind.

Treated the car to a good detail last week prior to driving over to Prague. Took me a few hours, but I did a few steps:

Clay
Swirl removal (not many there anyway)
Polish
Sealant
2 x layers of wax

Really loving the way Atlas Grey pops in the sun, you can even see the subtle blue flakes in the paint.

Few pics

Love this, what a great story this car has!

The Carrera Classics have to be the best wheels too, although I am a bit bias.

Weekend drive down to Vienna:



Spotted plenty of lovely local metal there as well:

No real update, just using and driving the car across Europe. Winter wheels/tyres are on and spent the weekend driving in the depths of Austria back roads with the skis on the roof (and some skiing as well)!

911 still impresses me with its traction. Loads of cars struggling to get out of the ski resort car parks, yet my 911 just crawls out with little fuss.

Well it's goodbye to my 997.2 C4S. After 3 years of fantastic ownership, countless European trips and successfully importing this Gulf spec car into two different countries (UK & Czech Rep) with crazy bureaucracy and rules to battle through (that alone has been worth the hassle to avoid its value crashing once Brexit hits). It's now going to its 4th country for registration and new owner in Holland. Very sad to see it go, but with the impending move to Canada and their import restrictions means I cannot take it with me. Needless to say, the search for the next one is already on....

I'm sorry to see it go Rich, but presumably to a good new home - this has certainly been a well travelled car. Mine is only on its third (and presumably last) country: Italy, UAE, Finland.

You can however start a new project with your Canadian car! I'm guessing that you'll be back in a 4?

Yes the new owner is very happy.

For sure I'm looking at cars in Canada. Once I've relocated and settled I'll be on the hunt for one! As for which model, not sure yet. GTS or maybe a Turbo.
