I could of not picked a nicer day for my trip up to my Porsche Indy RSR Autos in Bromsgrove for a minor service and gearbox oil change.
Happy to report all is well, no debris in the oil filter and a clean bill of health.
I never had an issue with the gear change but now its had fresh oil its just that bit smoother and very slick.
We are good to go for another season Grin

Yet again a fantastic trip to Dinslaken with the added bonus of a few laps and tour of the Spa circuit. A bit of an amazing place and if you get the chance it’s definitely worth it.
Had the pleasure of meeting some more of the 911uk faithful, also nice to put a face to that forum name Grin
Your guaranteed a good time as 997Phil’s co-pilot so once again thanks for the ride.
Thanks also to the people that put this together, made it happen and to the members of the Spa squadron Thumb

In the week I tried a sample bottle of Autoperfekt N1 finisher that I’d been given to try. It’s a final stage gloss enhancer used over the top of wax, sealant or just after a wash.
Very easy to apply just mist a panel and work in, flip the microfibre and buff.
All very easy and a noticeable positive result.

Headed out this morning to the Ashton Court Bristol breakfast meet.
A big turn out and quite a few Porsche’s in attendance inc a fellow 911uk member in his GT4 who just as it happens lives a few miles up the road from me.

Hi Kev. Great to meet you this morning and see your car in the flesh. It was looking shiny! Great event I thought altho I left too early to have a good look at that new Gt3 RS, I managed to check it out while it negotiated the speed bumps even more slowly than I did! Hope to see you around. Cheers Omar

So it’s another happy anniversary to me having now owned the car two years.
The strange thing is even after two years it still feels like a ‘new to me car’ and I very much still get that excitement factor when the garage door opens Grin
Off to Brooklands tomorrow which I’m looking forward too and hopefully I’ll get a few pictures on the banking Thumb

Headed over to Brooklands Sunday morning for the breakfast meet and had a throughly good day especially as I’d not been to Brooklands before.
Cracking weather, a great turnout and an interesting place to visit. Grin

Porsche on the prom Weymouth, its the second time I’ve been to this event held by the Dorset section of PCGB.
The trip down from South Wales wasn’t the best due to Friday afternoon traffic but with glorious weather it was a great evening.
Great also to catch up with a few 911uk south coast members.

Time for an update. As is usual for me the cars been laid up through the winter months and April couldn’t come fast enough.
I’ve had a couple of small jobs this time around first of all a broken offside coil spring. I ordered a pair from Portsmouth OPC which were fitted along with new hardware and had the 4 wheel alignment done so it’s now driving spot on. This done it flew the MOT so we are now back on the road.
Another job that needed doing was to swap out a faulty oil pressure sender unit which was just reading high all the time so again I ordered one from the OPC ready for it to be changed during an interim oil service. I headed up for this to be done to Porsche Indy RSR Auto services in Bromsgrove this morning.
With these jobs now done all is well once again and I’m very much looking forward to the new season which kicks off this weekend with the annual trip to Dinslaken Grin

It’s been some time since the last update.
I’ve not been to too many shows this year but highlight of the year was definitely our 3rd trip to Dinslaken back in the spring.
Booked again for 2020.
