Just for my mountain bike. Saw someone selling the full kit locally so had to have it.
Won't leave it on but at least it means I can use it for weekends away if we're going biking. Have a cool wee deflector to fit as well.

Bike rack works well. Ive left it on for a few weeks now. Uber handy with the bikes.
Sold my Audi and got a cheaper Golf Edition30 as a daily. Was going to get a derv beater but the Golf is proving fairly frugal as well so might just use that. However Id like to take the 911 off the road over this winter and go through the underneath, replacing coffin arms, tuning forks, powdercoating brackets, getting aircon pump swaped out and maybe a new suspension set up. Need to cost all that up first mind you as still on limited budget and don't want to rely solely on the Golf for the moment.

Saw those Spyder performance arms etc but not sure I want polybushed.

Oh and this happened today so now officially worthless anyway, Laughing

I picked up some roof bars and bike racks and bike from a user here as well, haven't fitted them yet, but there's something about seeing a 911 used for utility purposes which makes me smile.

I had a golf which I hit 111,111 km with on 11/11/2011. Should have taken a photo of that!

Does look very cool with a bike on the top. (Need a good spec MTB to pull it off though. Won't do to have a "Carrera"up there!)

Wheels fill the arches nicely too. What springs are you running at the moment?

Thanks, I make do with my Rocky Mountain for now but I do fancy something else.
It's on M030, nothing else. I dare say a little tired but your right I wouldnt want to go much lower.

Love the wheels and greetings from a fellow MTBer! I need to get a roof rack for mine as well now.

With some of the cash from selling the my Audi I bought new coffins arms and tuning forks from Spyder performance, I then spied some barely used KW coils on eBay and took a punt. Got them the other day but one isn't right so there off to be inspected. Even if I need that one redone I'm more than quids in. There barely used. Will get everything swaped over winter.

Annual oil change today, nothing on the magnetic sump plug so all good. Also sold the Veloce wheels as there was some others for sale that I was interested in but not sure now as I do really like the Panameras back on it.

That's a good hoard of parts!

As our resident wheel fanatic where would you recommend I look for some BBS LM?

There's a guy on Facebook based in Hungary who always seem to find these sort of things. Rarewheels I think is what he calls his site.

I just eBay a lot and also German eBay.

Seem to be having an issue with brake wear light. I fooled all sensors into thinking the pads are fine but it's not going out. Quite annoying.

Good progress Graham.

Are you using Cornering Force in Harrogate? Let me know how you get on and the costs if you don’t mind. Thumb

New rear shock required so went with two new.

MOT today and dull numberplate bulb was all that was required. About 4500miles since last one.

Put my private plate on it, liked the T plate but had this sitting so thought I'd use it. Reckon I'm going to sorn over winter and try clean up underneath properly when fitting suspension.

Still looking good. Cool

Good result with the mot. Had mine done yesterday morning. No drama thankfully.

But yes get it sorned. Give the old girl the winter off. Grin
You’ll be amazed where the time goes anyway Graham, once you strip it, assess it, sort the underside and inner arches etc. Big job. Thumb
