In which case that's a great price. I'm about to fit my Top Gear exhaust and cats and fully expect the existing sensors to be completely seized in.

When my exhaust and cats were changed I bought new 02 sensors to make the job easier. Removing old ones can be a nightmare, and can break. Thumb

I'd simply change the pre cat sensors but maybe try and save the post cat ones if you can, their function isn't important providing they work.

Just regular. I need to replace the silencers as they are split anyway so decided to change the cats for a small performance gain and a bit of future proofing anyway but without spending too much.

I will try and get my existing sensors out as I have the correct sensor sockets but even so it may well be a challenge. Will probably get the new pre cat ones as a minimum anyway.

Today's bargain seems to be crank position sensors, easy to swap and you'll not be stranded by the side of the road when the existing 15year old plus item goes open circuit

Is this the part number you ordered:

SKU: R96 300 333 10

Thinking about getting some rather than the H&R ones. I did order a PSS9 coilover kit but was told it was on back order and wouldn’t be delivered until Dec/Jan. Now thinking I’ll just get the lowering springs instead.

I have a set of four Ohlins springs - the ones that come with the Ohlins R/T shocks - which came out of their box for me to take a photograph and then went back in again.

They're on a shelf in my garage and will likely remain there for the rest of time unless anyone wants them, or I finally get round to eBaying them.

Give me a shout if you want them.

As I've not got a garage to keep the car (I do have one, but it's not big enough) I've just bought an outdoor Carcoon cover for the worst of the winter months. Very impressed in tests so far. Although the fans are very low power, the bubble inflates to a surprisingly solid pressure.

4 new sensors ordered - they were seized solid. Decided to swap the engine mounts at the same time. One of them was doing next to nothing - it's only function was stopping the engine from dropping out. Looking forward to drive it again with new silencers, new cats, new O2's, new rear mounts and gearbox mount insert.

OEM spec water pump and gasket
Wahler low temp thermostat kit
6x Bosch plugs
2x HAAS coilpacks

From ECP with a discount code. Was £400, now £240 all in.

Edit: anyone used the HAAS coilpacks before? Thought they'd be worth a punt.

I'm not sure on part numbers.....I just emailed and they were really helpful. Even gave vlub discount!👍🏻 H&R looked too low for me so opted for these.

Just bought myself some replacement gas bonnet struts and replacement centre caps.

Six coil packs, longer bolts and some NGK iridium plugs as I dropped a coil last night and now have a five cylinder 996 with a flashing CEL.

Car got jealous with me rebuilding a motorbike for commuter usage, clearly!

I’ve just got some RS Engine Mounts and RUF lowering springs. I did order the pss9 coilover kit but was told delivery would be in Jan so bought the springs instead.
I did send an enquiry to RUF about a set of their wheels but it seems their wheels are now forged and the cost is about £5k! 😳
