I do recommend the centre console delete though!


Centre console is long gone - pulled it out for the reasons you describe! Just need to order the bits of carpet/trim to cover up the gubbins it exposes

Needed new rears the other day - stonking deal on PS4s from Blackcircles and a mobile fitter came and did them at work.



Just in time for autumn

Busy week for the 996

1 - oil change. My second since I've had the car, takes longer to get everything out the garage than to do.

Oil drained down carefully and filter dissected - both reassuringly clear of any worries.







2- trackday at Silverstone. Surprisingly quiet as can be seen from the pic below - I think the weather put most off.






3 - the daily grind. It's that time of year now where the car is dirty all the time bar the 15 minutes after it's been washed. Doesn't bother me as it makes me feel less bothered about being left parked in city centres, in this case Oxford. Took the pic as couldn't believe how small the 996 looked compared to a regular Punto.

Thanks. Washed it last weekend, looked like this 5 days later after another zillion miles of commuting and running around:



Fortunately it cleans off easily:



Also removed the rear wiper (can see difference in above pics) as haven't used it once since owning the car and thought it looked rubbish. Bung in:



And fitted a set of LED headlights as I noticed the standard H7 lamps are cack.



Will report back how I get on with them!

LED bulbs are good - big improvement on halogens.

Beautiful weather today, particularly after the recent rain and storms, so after a quick wash a drive round the Cotswolds.

Straight through the MOT today @154k miles, only prep I had to do was a replacement front sidelight bulb.

Couple of months and nothing exciting to report - car performs faultlessly day in/day out, uses no fluids other than screenwash and petrol and does a great job as a fast daily.

Obviously this time of year with all the above, it looks minging!

Hi

Great car and really enjoyed the thread. Maybe I should delete the rear wiper on my 993. The arm is cracked so I cannot use it in any case. Will have to think about it.

Are LED bulbs 'plug and play' or do you have to fit ballasts etc?

I'm looking for a solution for mum's X Type, which has dreadful projector halogens.
