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


So true Jon, shame really but as you know the roads around these parts are pretty good so they'll just have to do Wink

After going back through and updating as best I can pics after photophucket decided to hold me to ransom thought I would update with a new purchase...

Wheel Porn Alert!

Cool Invested in a new spare set of Speedlines with Trofeo R's (edit to add Christophorus article pic), decided to put them into use rather than store away in their boxes Embarassed

^^ Hi C2CKL long time no post Thumb Have you still got your long termer 993?

To clarify the article posted above is not my car but the Porsche Museum's clubsport 993RS, just realised my earlier post could be misleading Embarassed It was to highlight why I went with the Trofeo's. Anyway just thought I'd mention in case there was any element of doubt. Judge bye

No James, I don't have the 'long termer - daily driver' any more I'm afraid, and I'm not very useful at posting on here either!

Anyway can i join 'the club' ?

No application necessary all welcome Smile Thumb How long did you keep your 993 for as when I signed up on here in 2009 you'd had yours for a fair while, 10+ years? What's the pic of as its not working, have you tried 'choose file' and then 'add attachment' found below a new message/reply window?

Hello again James - you've 'outed' me now Very Happy

So just a little spiel as requested.

My C2 long termer had to go (really wish it hadn't though as i loved that car! - think that a user of this forum may have it) as I was 'collecting' too many cars and something had to give. Wanted the wife to keep it as her daily but that didn't work out and as i was on the verge of buying something else....so.......

The RS is a genuine UK RHD car with 28k miles and an interesting original spec. It is totally standard with the small spoiler pack as ordered, except i have changed the steering wheel to the Porsche Motorsport version which is personally more comfortable for me and gives me greater clearance above the knees/ thighs. Oh and it has the 'RSR's fitted (originals in lovely condition under wraps in garage along with orig. steering wheel).

It is a fantastic car to drive (as I'm sure you know) - and for me embodies a lot of qualities from differing RS models - very, very useable and just so lovely to drive.

Unfortunately won't have it for the S/S Classic next week due to circumstances and already booked in with the 964.

Will look out for you on the Sunday - I take it you will be in yours?

All the best
Chris
PS. Thanks for the picture posting lesson last night - very helpful. Even an idiot like me can get it right eventually!
