If you are patient bbs lm's do appear on well known auction sites. I had been looking for more than 2 years when a set cropped up. They had been taken off a Japanese imported 993 RS . I made an offer quite a bit under what he was asking and he accepted as he was sick of timewasters.
I got them under half the price of what carnewal charge for them and they are as new so it pays to be patient.

If it's good enough and you're happy, badge it.

All great colours. My first 3.2 Carrera was Zermatt silver it's probably the nicest 911 silver.

I'd probably go Maritime.

How about Speed Yellow?



Another question that your photos has just reminded me to mention...

To badge or de badge... that is the question..?

Probably a topic that has been discussed to death. Jaap has the Carrera RS badge at the rear but general concensus from this forum as well as others is to leave it blank, 911, Carrera 4RS, or Carrera.

Technically mine will be a C4, with a C2 box and RS spec... personally I like the Carrera RS badge. Thoughts / suggestion?


I went through this 'dilemma' with my GT2RS rep build and in the end I decided to badge. Do what makes you happy. Sure you'll get people offering opinions and some actually get upset but ultimately it's your car and you are paying the money. Some don't like it but now I say to them 'well when I build one for you I'll leave the badges off.'

I use Photobucket, it's pretty straight forward. Upload image, put curser on image, click 'Share'



click IMG and it will copy, then paste the copied link into the thread.



If it's the upload process let me know.

I've been using photobucket for years, but it's iPad app now doesn't seem to work, having to use the iPhone one and it's really glitchy.

I can't see how my Flickr one can be right with such a short url

Ah right. Yes it's fooked. Contacted them ages ago about it, but they basically said they're not going to fix it. I ended up downloading the iPhone version which works ok on the iPad.

Will this be a RS lightweight built or a touring build?

does anyone know if the touring had rear seats?

Touring didn't have rear seats but did have the rear shelf and wheel arch liners that the non touring did without. The difference inside to a normal C2 are minimal.
I would strongly advise against deleting the wheel arch liners, they make a huge difference to usability due to the noise inside the cabin. I refitted mine for this reason.

did the 'touring' version keep most of the sound deadening? i see it had comfort seats with tri colored leather and actually the full door cars rather than RS piece of vinyl..

so it had no back seats but kept the parcel shelf? what was on the side panels in the rear.. just wondering as i'm trying to lose weight on my C2 but want to keep a sense of purpose and seems the touring version has a good balance between the two.

I think the sound deadening was also kept, imagine a standard car without rear seats and that is how the touring looks. Some also had a sunroof, headlamp washers, AC etc depending on what was added from the option sheet.
The normal RS has carpet under the rear side windows and carpet instead of a rear shelf. Too noisy for road use imo.

Aiming for the lightweight option.

- Including the arch liners and parcel shelf
- Adding the rollcage and sound insulation
- replacing the C4 gearbox and drivetrain for a C2 version
- Sunroof staying
- No A/C on the car
- Other things yet to be decided incl the colour... (thinking Maritime or Polar)

I would think doing seam welding is better than a cage but probably should have the experts chime in

More updates from Brian today. Car fully stripped and heading to the bodyshop to rectify the rust accumulated around the sill and rear arches.

More updates when the welding commences...
