PostPosted: Thu Feb 08, 2018 7:27 pm    Post subject: Pick up tomorrow... Reply with quote

After much deliberation over many years, I finally succumbed to the Porsche itch. I had tried to avoid it for some unknown reason since I spent a week with a mate's new 996 C4 back in 2001 and loved it. The only reason I can attribute to this delay was that the 911 is an obvious choice for a committed driver and therefore, in my mind, to be avoided at all costs...! I have a somewhat eclectic car history predominantly based on impulse buys of less obvious "drivers" cars that in my mind however, have been mostly very cool...

So I have dipped a toe with my local independent, RSJ, (Who have been absolutely stella so far). I have a fairly basic 997.1 C4S manual in black on black. Carrera Classic 5 spokes (RSJ swapped these for me), Sports Chrono, PSE, Sports heated seats. I have added a Pioneer touch screen and 5mm spacers front and back.

Pick it up tomorrow before going away with the family for a few days at the weekend so it will be put away almost immediately. However I have booked a few nights by myself in N. Wales the week after to fling around the Evo Triangle and also to head south during the day to try and catch some action at the Mach Loop...

Glad to be part of the community.

Congratulations and welcome.

You won't go far wrong with rsj, it's where I bought mine.

I frequent the Mach loop in the summer on motorcycle and car when it's not pi$$ing down here in Wales, which it very often is so, if you've never been before, use the time schedule on the MOD website as a guideline.

I've known them to be an hour and a half late.

Good luck with the 911 Thumb

So just having a little break from driving. What a car. The sports exhaust sounds lovely, the handling is awesome, the steering is sublime and the back is so progressive and easy to catch. I’m loving this car.

The car was genuinely immaculate when I picked it up from RSJ. A list of work they had undertaken to bring it up to scratch and the detailing was perfect. Even the bonnet catch looked brand new. The time and expense they must go to to ensure a great handover experience is huge. I genuinely couldn’t be more delighted. Anyway I’m off to think of another excuse to thrash around the lanes of Berkshire.

Awesome.....!
