Have to say I am missing driving my car. Brought it out of my garage just to take some pictures, sad I know Embarassed Just keen to drive it. I usually enjoy a decent winter run but the roads are covered in salt. Don't see it being out for sometime. More than likely sorn it. Sad

Ooh that's so pretty - is it midnight blue?? If so, same colour as mine...absolutely love the whale tail wing - is that a standard Porsche part for an RS? I only ask because someone offered me a factory RS airkit recently...and it is almost Christmas, after all.

Feel your pain re winter blues. Luckily no snow or salt here and am still using mine as the daily! Very Happy

That is beautiful.

I don’t blame you for not running it through the winter. It’s such a shame to only be able to use such a thing for 2/3 of the year though....

Yes, midnight blue. The spoiler is the comfort spec as against the clubsport version. I have this as well and occasional swap it over, the front spoiler changes with the CS aerodynamics. Comfort is far more subtle.

Clubsport picture as a comparison.

We must meet up at "The Stables" by the canal at Bishopbriggs sometime. I'm often up in Glasgow to see my son or at Knockhill doing a track day.
Aesthetic perfection, car and photos.

Sounds good, would defiantly be up for that. Let you have a shot of the RS to compare.

Sounds like you need a new battery fella. Mine will fire into life comfortably after being left for a couple of weeks. Any longer and I plug in the Ctek conditioner to keep the battery tip top.

Feeling your pain tp81 but it does give a little time for maintenance & cleaning jobs while we wait for the Spring.
