Hi everyone,

Just thought I'd introduce myself on here. I'm Paul and I live in Suffolk.

I had a 987.2 Cayman S for 3 years, then I bought a Audi R8. After owning the R8 for just over a year I missed how good the Porsche was as a daily driver.

Therefore on Friday I picked up a 2013 Carrera 4S in Guards Red. I absolutely love it to bits, and the spec was everything I was looking for (plus a bit more)

Full list is:

Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK Gearbox)
Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) incl. PASM sports chassis (20 mm lower)
BOSE® Surround Sound System
Sports exhaust system
Sport Chrono Package
SportDesign bodkykit package
Electric slide/tilt sunroof
Leather interior package
Sports seats plus electrical 4 ways
Automatically dimming interior and exterior mirrors with integrated rain sensor
Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including navigation module with universal audio interface
White instrument dials
Leather centre console trim
Privacy glass (rear side windows and rear window)
Wheel spacers 5mm
Porsche crest embossed on head restraints
Guards Red seat belts
Lid of storage bin with logo
Heated seats
20-inch Carrera S wheel
Rear wiper
Wheel Centres
Cruise control
Tyre Pressure monitoring system (TPM)
Top tinted windscreen
ParkAssist (front and rear)
Power steering Plus
Telephone module
Electric folding exterior mirrors
Floor mats
SportDesign steering wheel

Haven't taken any decent photo's yet, but here's a couple from when I got it home:

Yeah, it was a factory option. It's the "Sportdesign Package". Same front bumper as the Aerokit Cup, but just the Ducktail rather than Ducktail+Wing you get on the Aerokit Cup.

You can see the options available as a retrofit if you go on 991 here: http://content2.eu.porsche.com/prod/pag/tequipment/TeqFinder.nsf/TeqFinder?ReadForm&country=gb

Now that's a cracker. Ride height, wheels and ducktail really make the car stand out from the crowd. Thumb

Remove the "911 Carrera 4S" Script from the rear and it will be perfect. Wink

Ah yes you did list it in the specs which was TLDR for me Grin
Looks much better than the silly wing on the Aerokit Cup imo.

Haha, the Zafira was just a short term visitor luckily.

Regarding the garage, technically the car would fit with possibly enough space to get out. However, I made the early decision when I moved in that I’d rather it be a workshop type garage. With all the racking, tool chests and workbench you’d struggle to get a mini in there now!

Took the car round Snetterton on Saturday to see what it could do. All I did prep wise was to fit Pagid RS29 pads on the front. Was very impressed with it, as were a few other people who wanted passenger rides.

A few pics from the day:
