Hi All,

Just picked up a 996 C4S at the backend of March, used this forum to do plenty of research over the 6 months or so before finding the one!

Atlas Grey
Manual
PSE
Black sports seats
KW V3 coilovers

My first Porsche, joint venture with my Dad who had previously owned a wide body 930.

Atlas grey doesn't photograph well but it's a great colour in the fresh.

Very nice!

Great seeing all of these 4S's coming to the forum. I'm back up North now too, Manchester, so think a Northern 996 4S meet should be on the cards thumbsup

Great colour, enjoy.

It is very low! Drives perfectly, and not too harsh at all. However, I am used to (very!) lowered cars and daily drive this:



The presence of the Porsche is perfect in my opinion, just the right amount of drop with spacers all round to fill the arches. Would have been a mod I would have carried out if I were to have bought a standard car.

Will keep my eye on the meets section, as would be up for drive out!

Lovely looking Porsche, welcome to the forum. I am a huge fan of the C4S and still think it is amongst the best looking 911s.

Great car, I have exactly the same without the coilovers however she is booked in to be fettled, I have 200 cell CATS coupled to the PSE, it's sounds awesome.
Are you based near York, would be great to have a couple of Atlas Grey 996s together, I have been told they are quite a rare colour.

Definitely not many Atlas cars around - did I read some where it was a special order colour?

Sweet - will need to hear it Very Happy I am up in Sunderland, so not too far from York!
