MOT with no advisories, a new starter motor (ouch!) and yearly maintenance check.

Oh, and tax at the end of the month.

Now where is that Lottery ticket...?

Where did you source the blanking switch from? It's the one thing I haven't done regarding my wiper delete.

Ouch, not a nice list to have to listen to, but at least you'll feel a transformation once you get it back from all the work..! thumbsup

Just returned from spending 2 days at Center Gravity where Pete worked his magic on my 993. It now handles fantastic. I opted for 12mm above RS height. The journey is always so much nicer on the way back, shame it was mostly motorway.

2 days wow, that's some serious set-up time, I bet it transformed the car, nice work.

Yes definitely going to have a geo done. Possibly at OPC. I have also ordered rear lower V wishbones. After much deliberation have gone down the Danske route. It has had a new rear lower arm koni fsd, mo33 springs overhaul last year so hopefully this latest lot will really improve things.

And!! New discs and pads also to be fitted with calipers going off to be refurbed and sprayed.
Big dilemma of keep em black and original? or be daring with red or yellow!!!
