Well spotted. And a manual soup stirrer.

Apart from that, it’s the same. It’d even settled almost the same amount at the front from factory ride height as the last one what

I won no prizes for a manual as the wife prefers the auto box. Though she also prefers four legs to four wheels.

Both pictures taken in livery yards what



How did I miss the fact that you’d replaced a 997.1 turbo with...a 997.1 turbo???!!
Looking good, Paul. Man, those wheels do suit the car and colour Bandit


Thanks Mike. Appreciated thumbsup

Ps. Opinions do vary, either way - you bought the best all rounder for the money and I'd be shocked if anyone can prove otherwise Thumb

Brilliant contribution (as usual) to this thread.

Keep trying though as someone might bite and ask about your new car that you felt the need to tell us about on the previous page!

Which is the same colour and body type Dont know

One great thing about the new interior is that it won’t show the dirt from the livery yard Grin

The 'entry level' Cayman competitor might do but the supercharged V6 is a cheap but serious 911 rival and the V8 is a real monster.

After some soul searching, I did find life after Porsche 911 Tuned Turbo hard (and I did love mine as you all know) however the lust for an Italian Supercar, a "made it car" for me was possible.

My Initial and thought about short list was:
Lambo Gally LP560
Fezza F430 Spider
Porsche GT3 / GT4
AM DBS
MP4-12c or whatever they call it...

So - I bought an F430. The test drive was everything I wanted it to be, noise, drama, hairs standing on end and did I mention the noise. in the short journey, it was thumbs up and picture taking. Madness, to say the car left its mark is an understatement !! It is not as fast, no where near in fact as my Turbo, but Oh so, so special.

Roll on Summer !! It can't come quick enough - Pictures are mandatory of course once I get her home !! Thumb


Can I ask what a 'made it car' is?
