Thanks for the message Phil! Thumb

I don’t remember these coming up often.

It was amazing when on the car, but car going back to standard due to sale.

(although I blame you for inspiring me to carry out some nice enhancements ! Laughing )

Sale of the century! I’d have taken your hand off had I not fitted a full Kline system. Can’t believe it’s not been snapped up!

It’s also just struck me that if and when I decide to sell my car, I’ll probably leave it in it’s tuned state and sell as is. Putting back to standard seems a ball ache and it would seem you lose shed loads on mods like full systems.

As the years click by and Porsche warranty becomes a fading memory, my car seems much more attractive as is. Definitely to me anyway Thumb

I think you’re right in thinking that way....

But i don’t think potential buyers of my car would necessarily have cared. Ended up just selling to the trade..:

Although I do fancy a 997.2TT at some point so will keep an eye out in case you decide to sell !! Grin

Honestly Nik, I love this car! And I’ll probably be stuck with it for some time. I’ve often pondered ‘what next?’ But for the money, nothing comes close. I’d have to double up spendies to match performance, looks and handling. Which is a lot of dough. thumbsup

Thanks Phil Thumb

I’m surprised myself. It’s a superbly built system, in a huge fan of Akra systems. Had them on my E90 M3, M2, etc.

I think the price is fair considering it has the wireless switch also.

The system is currently sat at Nine Excellence in Horley, so ideally it could be collected/fitted there. Else I’m going to pick up on the weekend.

Thanks again!

Phil uses a Porsche Tech called James Belbin who is quite reasonable and I have the fitting instructions from Akra in case that is of interest. Thumb

£480+VAT is expensive I think. I was sadly charged a fair amount for some other work recently as part of an SoR that didn’t happen. All put down to experience and won’t be making that mistake again!

But I’m sure another place will fit for less. Phil uses a guy call James Belbin who is quite reasonable and I have the fitting instructions from Akra in case that is of interest. Thumb

Yup.


Just to clarify my earlier post (which I’ve edited!) as I realised it may have been misinterpreted.

Frustration was more at the market, as my car didn’t sell despite the fair amount spent on prep (tyres/etc). Thumb

So now focussed on what to replace the 997 (and Akra) with!
