Hi Rich,
Great decision to keep your handsome motor and the upgrades sound perfect.
Which wheel spacers did CG fit - any links?
Thumb

Cheers! I supplied the spacers to CG. I bought them off eBay which another forum recommended (eBay seller: tech_world_direct).

I've done about 500 miles so far with no issues.

Headed to Slovakia over Xmas and NYE for a spot of skiing. Really impressed with how the 4S copes in the snow!



Spotted this photo that a local Slovak had posted on Instagram:

Thanks! They're the standard/OEM wheels what came on the Gen 2. I think they are called "Carrera S II"

I love them. I’m not a fan of many of the 997 wheel range but they look great, particularly in the first pic.

Yup, those. As you can imagine the choice of winter tyres at these sizes are quite limited in the UK. Unlike what you guys have over in Finland! Smile

Thanks Rich. Thought so as it is just about possible to see the tread edge in the photos, and looking at the snow, it would be virtually impossible to get anywhere without them.

Really enjoyable thread and love what you are doing with your car. Thumb

There is plenty of choice, if you run a normal car, but funnily enough winter rears for the later model 911s (295, 305 section etc.) are in very short supply ... I bought the only pair in stock in the whole of Finland this autumn. It wasn't a question of choice. They had two HKPL7s and I bought them with a pair of fronts to match.

Apparently the factory was flat out producing the new gen HKPL9s in common sizes, so any 8s or R2s would have been on back order. I might have got them in the spring... frustrated

Lord help me if I get a flat...

Couple of weeks ago i popped over to see Gert at Carnewal for him to fit one of his GT exhausts (basically he modifies the internals for better flow/sound etc).

Today I got around to recording a video. Recorded on a Gopro, standard internal mic. Note my car also has a Sharkwerkz bypass/x-pipe.

Video here:

Finally got around to getting my car out of storage yesterday (it's been in since end of Jan)

At the storage place, still looking the same shiny car. Exciting to see her again:-



As per my last few updates, the car has been running on Nokian winter tyres. So it was time to stick some new summer rubber on. I went for the Michelin PS4S. I also wanted to keep the winter tyres on the rims too, so I picked up a set of the Carerra Classics. Not everyone's taste, but for me I've always like the simple design.

Before:



After:




Atlas Grey poppin in the sun light:-



Also fitted some Zunsport grills. Really pleased with the quality and 5 mins fitting time.

No, the Zunsport ones sit in front of the vents. They simply click in place.
