Yas, how much to send it to Porto, Portugal?

I have a buyer for the Turbo Splitter. Posting to Portugal won't be cheap and would risk getting damaged. Sorry buddy.


Shame you had to sell. I quite liked the contrast of black and yellow, was it really that bad?

Loved my Speed Yellow 911... But not as much as the bugs in summer.
Park it in the countryside whilst you have lunch and it will be camouflaged by ladybirds etc time you get beck.

Its not a bad look at all, the keen eye will notice the difference with the non painted side skirts. I am ordering a new OEM Turbo Splitter. I have both Turbo and C4S splitters for sale.

Speed yellow attracts it all!! Bugs, Bee's and Girls Thumb

Small update, I Installed a genuine Turbo Splitter. Looks so aggressive over the stock C4S splitter. Unfortunately, I did not realise the splitter was painted in Black and doesn't quite match the rest of my exterior trim. I have listed it for sale if anyone is interested.

Here is a cheeky pic of it on Smile

Next on the list of things to do;
15mm (F) and 18mm (R) RSS Spacers
OEM GT3 Bucket Seats
PopPopBangBang Titanium Exhaust Bolts
Front Bumper Re-Spray plus Stone Chip Correction.
Fix Rattle in Drivers Door Card
MOT due March
Lastly, Get Out and Drive thumbsup


Wow 15mm spacers on the front? I was looking at 7mm so very interested what it will look like with those

Harv,

Seems to be common running 15mm spacers all around, see link below;

http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/996/169073-stock-wheels-w-15mm-spacers-2.html

Looks great, tempted to go 18mm on rear!

Great stance and fills the wheel arch gaps nicely Smile

I also noticed I have a set of OEM EISENMANN Exhaust Tips on my Porker

Spring Update;

I have been a busy chap, I sold my Abarth (daily car) and decided to buy a classic Porsche 924 for the summer Smile Loving the old girl, such a great classic and timeless design. Seems to turn more heads than any car I previously owned Grin

Bumblebee has had a fair amount of attention too. MoT in March , marched right through with a Pass & no advisories Smile
I installed a BMC air filter and renewed my Auxiliary belt. I must admit the BMC filter adds to the car. I personally feel a more responsive throttle response. Also benefiting a subtle increase in sound along with the PSE thumbsup

Taking advantage of the good weather I have enjoyed cleaning, tinkering and driving my Porsches. I began some cleaning work on the underside, firstly tackling the wheel liners and plastic trims. A good amount of cleaning solution and elbow grease got all the muck off. Then applying ACF-50 protects and brings back factory black finish. Well worth doing on a yearly basis.

As usual, managed to snap a few pictures from my outings -getout&drive

Its been a while since my last update, since then I have been on many drives, couple with Markturner1960 and his SY GT3 (great guy and a beauty of a GT3). Couple of upgrades/servicing has been done. Most importantly I am thoroughly enjoying my C4S ownership - almost a year in and I can't stop smiling when taking 'Bee' out for a Sunday thrash. thumbsup

So whats new, I decided to remove some weight and general tidying. I removed the following items -

1) Spare Wheel + Jack + Tyre Kit
2) Rear seat delete (no need for these)
3) Rear Windscreen Motor and Arm
4) Turbo Hard Back Seats
Cleaned the interior carpets,leather & Yellow belts - looks brand new.

As my car came with GT3 buckets seats from factory, I had always wanted to buy a set. No surprise these items are not easy to source and demand a large amount of cash ££££. After reading up, few members opted for the Design 911 Carbon GT3 seats. I thought why not try them out, keep the rest of the money for maintenance work.
I have to say, the 2 month wait paid off. I am extremely happy with the overall quality and fit. Transforms the cabin and matches the factory CF trim. The driving position is enhanced although getting in and out the car is a little more tricky... I can live with that Smile

I then tackled the stance, was never happy with the tucked in wheels. So I called JZM and ordered a set of RSS wheels spacer + bolt kit. I opted for 15mm Front, 18mm Rear. The kit is excellent quality as you expect with RSS products.
This changed the overall stance IMHO, sitting just right giving a more aggressive appearance. No issues with rub or poor handling.

I have began an underside clean but require getting the car on a ramp, remove all the under trays to thoroughly clean and protect for the years to come.

My annual service is due, Major according to the history book but I have already changed coil packs & plugs. I am looking to do a full fluid change - engine/gearbox/diff/coolant (brake fluid was done last year).
Then opt for a LTT and might as well change the water pump while I am there for future proofing.
Oil wise, I currently use 5w40 Mobil Super 3000. The car does use a little so thinking to try Millers nano 10W50. Any recommendations? Dry stored over the winter so heavier oil shouldn't be a problem.

Again, here are a few snaps of BEE

bye

Great work and good to see an update, rather fancy a set of the reclining carbon/leather seats that D911 offer myself.

We need to see some close up pics of the 18mm rear spacers!

Some great mods there buddy
I'm planning to do the same with my steering wheel
And would love the seats if only they tilted forward to allow the kids in when required once in a blue moon

Precisely the issue I have! I did think it maybe possible to fabricate a custom bucket mount with a sprung loaded pin which when withdrawn allows the whole seat to tip forwards on front mounted hinges (ala 356 GS/GT seats) but would be a gamble to order them to see if this works in the available space.

Thanks guys. I shall get some pics with the RSS spacers, looks so much better. Regarding the GT3 seats, they are brilliant. However, if you want to use the back seats, you will find it impossible Question

996lee, if you want your steering wheel done, contact Jack at Royal Steering wheels. He worked his magic on mine and I cant fault it.

What engine & gearbox Oil are you guys using in your 996s?

Top work yas.

Cool 924 and the 4S is coming on great. LSB M3 too. What a fleet. Thumb

As for oil everyone I know is running 10/50 millers.

Also. The seats look fantastic. I'll be doing my interior but much further down the line. Buckets, Cup steering wheel etc. I'm torn between the Carbon GT3 reps like yours or Recaro SPGs/pole positions.

Yours look much better than pole positions, being carbon etc but I know what I'm getting with Recaros. Those D911 ones are a bit of an unknown quantity as far as testing and standards go. No denying they look the best though. It'll be a tough choice when I get to that stage. Thumb

Car looks better every time you post, Some nice mods.

Oil got to be millers nano 10w50 best price is opie oil.

while your under it cleaning the underside grab some ACF50 and give it a coating, but avoid the brakes when doing it. lol

Thanks Marky, its quite a collection and ever growing Smile picking up a Guards Red 944 soon (924 might be up for sale soon).

You won't regret the GT3 reps, great quality and look the part. But you can never go wrong with Recaro Pole's Question

Phil, thanks its slowly getting there, certainly stands out from the average 996. All mods are reversible and can be returned to stock for the purists.
Brilliant, I will order Millers Nano 10w50 for my service. Any advice on gearbox oil?
Yes, ACF50 is brilliant stuff. Already have a bottle thumbsup Great for plastic trim too.
