That's excellent news chaps!

It makes sense too as the weather WILL be glorious and everyone can:

A/ Get all excited over summer of motoring ahead.

And

B/ Show off any improvements made over the winter months Grin

Super stuff!

Matty

Hi Guys

Not long been a 993 owner, and is also my first Porsche. It just so happens to be........Aventura!

being based in the South East I'd be keen to tag along if this is still going ahead/hasn't already happened?!


Welcome bye

Whilst we wait for Spring to arrive and a meet to happen, could you throw some pics up of your 993? Really eager to see a newly resprayed Aventura 993 - your other post indicates you've gone all out on a restoration? Smile

Hi guys

Apologies for lack of response, work has got in the way! Trying to post pics with my iPad to no avail, so will try when I'm back in work tomorrow.

Not really a restoration as such, but chose a full respray whilst fixing windscreen surround rust! Next up is the interior, which is pretty scruffy to be honest - but she is a high miler!

So what happened to this proposal? Smile


I met up with Sutton earlier, he very kindly gave me a full demo of his tastefully improved 993, as I wanted to hear a car running 200 cell cats first hand I think it's made my mind up Very Happy - thank you very much, Sutton! thumbsup


Anyway, it reminded us about this thread - shall we make it happen for 2017?


Some pics from earlier:

Great meeting with you Ch3tman.

The back to back comparison was an interesting exercise. The 200 cell cat brings benefits on many levels so I think you will appreciate them. Any thoughts on the LWF? Very Happy

Ohhh some nice pics with the twin aventuras! Well I am busy until May when early or late May would suit. June is good but not the tail end. Failing that July is clear!

I am in Tunbridge Wells area in Kent and easy with locale. Brands Hatch one Sunday morning for coffee?.. Thay way we all get to hoon it around the M25 when nobody is much around (sensible speeds natch).

Ch3tman is running B6/ H&R and I have B8/ H&R. We're both at RS+10 although set up by different places. There is a noticeable difference between the two set ups in terms of ride absorbancy and body roll.

The B6 felt very fluid with a good balance between comfort and handling at the expense of body roll at low speed. As a passenger, it felt quite close to standard suspension. Mine cornered flatter due to being a bit firmer but is a more nuggety over bumps. You don't really feel them but you can hear the suspension working below you.

If you can get a ride in another car with different suspension, you should then have some reference points.

A meet sounds good. I haven’t been to Brands Hatch for a while so that works.

I'll check out their setup when passing by over the next couple of weeks. I'm sure they have a cafe where we can all gas. Will propose some dates too Thumb

Whilst autumn passed us by we managed to get another catch up on a sunny winter day before the year is out. Both cars have pleasantly evolved and for the better! Great to see and share improvements, tips, plans, etc.

No better thread to post a few pics, albeit from the phone...





Aero looks very cool Cool:





Looking forward to the next one; thanks Sutton! thumbsup.
Any interested parties around the M4/M25/M40 region wish to join..?

What a great way to spend a couple of hours! Those Tramonts do look good and what I really liked was that the track seemed a bit wider so there was less gap between the wheel face and front wing inner lip.

There was no noticeable difference in colour tone (I wasn't expecting there to be) between the two but the flake refraction was obviously different.

Another meet sounds good.

All - have a great Christmas break.

Hi Sutton,

Looks like you've been busy with your car since we met. Any more pics?

My car is hibernating in Berks this winter, but would be up for a meet in the coming months....

Hi Harry!

Good to hear from you. Let us know what works for you time-wise.

I'll grab some photos in the sun as the light refraction makes the paint come alive and sparkle.

Hi Harry,

I'm having trouble getting the photos down to size to fit. If you want to drop me a pm with your email address, I can email these and others which will be much easier.
