Maxie, I think I remember seeing a post with your diecast, quite a few I recall Thumb

Good memory! Thumb On your car (and the group photo posted by Simon W), are those 993 GT2 rear wings? I didn't know they were an option on the 993...?

Your C4S was the best in the country IMO......but I do love a Riviera RS.....!


Thanks Simon, I do miss the 4S but the RS has eased the pain a little Smile

Maxie, M471 factory option Club Sport Wing Pack (front full width chin spoiler and rear wing assembly), option on the M002 Street Version of the RS and standard on the M003 Club Sport. The GT2 has the same front chin but a different rear wing (as pic above), if you look at the air intakes they're quite different. Thumb

RS version below.

A quick update. Dropped my car off at OPC Nottingham yesterday for its MOT and oil + filter change. I supplied my own oil and can't fault their service. Not only did I get a nice 'porsche classic' stamp in the service book but a porsche memory stick of photos (they did ask permission first). A couple of them below, brushed over by tp81 Cool

Nice touch by the OPC to give you the memory stick and take the time to picture the car. Might consider using OPC to do th annual service and keep the maintenance with my Indy.

Remind me what oil you used

Wash your mouth out with soap James Hand that cars not for tracking these days. It looks truly immaculate and no good would come from putting that around a track, your insurer is doing you a huge favour. Shame but true as after all that was the designers intention. Sad
