Obviously me and Adam have spoken loads via email etc, but I don’t want to look like I’m ignoring the thread or anything. Grin
Quite the opposite and I’m very interested in the cars next chapter. Cool

As I’ve said Adam, I’m really glad it’s gone to a forum member who will continue to look after it and enjoy it. I hope it serves you well. Thumb

Thanks to the people commenting on the work Craig and I carried out. For the most part it was very enjoyable and the end result is a lovely car, if I do say so myself. Very Happy

As you say Adam, it makes a great sound. It screams better than my GT3 as I’m still running the std airbox at the moment.
Try and sort the dealer plates. They just add a touch of quality. It’s all in the detail.

Enjoy! Thumb

Although sh!t weather yesterday, I had to get her out for a blast as not really driven much since collection due to other plans.
My son loved it too (his 1st run out in this one)
So rewarding ! Although obviously slower than my previous T, it some how feels more fun and engaging to drive. Lots of smiles Very Happy

Roll on spring and dry weather Cool Cool

A quick couple of “dirty” pics:

Well done Adam, you secured a beauty there. I actually contacted Mark when he was selling it, but I was just too late and his friend (Mark again) has taken it. Enjoy it!! Give me a shout when you’ve had your fun though. Very Happy

Thanks very much! Very Happy
Are you thinking of a 996 to accompany the 993 then ?
Beautiful 993 BTW!!

996’s are great cars and a relative bargain in comparison thumbsup
