Good evening.

Haven't really introduced myself properly - I'm a bit of a lurker when it comes to forums....

This is my 993 C4 in schwarz perl with hardback sports seats I bought last October. 43k on the clock. This is my 3rd 993 having owned a Guards red C2 non variorum and a Midnight Blue Targa tip.

So far I have done the following ready for the summer:

Remap by Wayne Schofield
Refurbed the hollow spoke turbo twists
3 spoke leather steering wheel (refurbed by Royal Steering Wheels) & leather airbag.
Becker Cascade with Bluetooth audio; nice Genesis amp already installed by previous owner.
New pads & discs all round
New Cargraphic mufflers & Dansk tips
Front strut brace
Centre Gravity Health check with new front bushes & Geo set-up last week.

Only other things planned this year:

FD Motorsports golden rod to firm up the gear change
Some paint correction to front & rear bumpers & scuttle

I like an annual trip to Europe - off to France this Friday visiting Le Mans, Gorges de la Bourn, Route Napoleon, Verdon Gorge,Cannes, Col du Torini and back via Millau Bridge and Gorge du Tarn, Limoges and back to Roscoff - all in about 10 days.

Did all the major Alpine passes last year and looking for ideas for future trips.

So where are you heading out this year?

Great post.

I took mine to Dinslaken two weeks ago, with Phil997 and about 10 other 997s. My 128k mileage 993 kept up and handled the trip well.

Not sure what the rest of the summer has in store for the 993

Your car looks great!
Some very tasteful improvements, and your interior especially looks super clean and tidy thumbsup.

We loved N85/Route Napoléon! Would like to experience the B500 in Germany and Silvretta-Hochalpenstraße & Großglockner-Hochalpenstraße in Austria this year. The Spanish Pyrenees also get glowing reviews, so they too are on the wish-list.

Incidentally, and given the space savers in our cars are probably many years past their best, what do you carry to address the prospect of a puncture? Tyreweld? ..or...? Question

Black/Black is always a winner on a Sports Car and yours looks super clean with its barely run in 43k on the clock. Thumb

European trip reads like fun. Be sure and post some pics when you get chance and safe driving.

I’m off to Volterre in Tuscany in mine end of July.

Mines covered 143K miles, so yours really is only just past running in stage. Smile

With such low mileage, I’m so glad your using it rather than it being a garage queen.

Great looking car.

Amongst other trips I'm taking my brother to the Silverstone Classic and we are doing the classic run on the Saturday. His surprise 50th present is driving the car on the parade lap round the GP circuit on the Sunday!

Just need my car back now...

OP that looks stunning!!!

I've got a few trips planned so far (albeit not all long ones).

Off to Antwerp for the late May bank holiday (popping in to see Gert on the way...vid to follow hopefully)
Then Champagne region in June (a little village called Mareuil sur Ay), then on to Norfolk for a wedding and staying in Blighty for a week or so.
Rounding off the summer with a charity rally to Monaco which should be a blast too.
